Hair extensions have long been a go-to hairstyling option for celebrities, wearing wigs and hairpieces for their latest photo shoots, TV spots or films, or as a key resource for becoming red carpet ready. The versatility provided by hair additions and hairpieces  gives fashion icons, award-winning actors and big-name recording artists the edge they need to keep up with the latest styles and be on the cutting edge of glamour and fashion. To this end, most celebrities understand the importance of ensuring their hair and skin remain healthy throughout their wardrobe changes. In the case of Naomi Campbell however, traction alopecia is a result of not properly protecting her hair and scalp during her years of wearing hair extensions and hair weaves, allowing her natural hair to be braided too closely and too tightly, most notably at the hairline.  Qualified hair replacement specialists constantly advise against attachment methods that damage the hair, particularly those that can cause undue stress and hair damage (catch the video on how to use hair extensions as a way to avoid traction alopecia). Insure the health of your natural hair by searching out a hair extension specialist that can recommend alternative methods that protect the health of your hair and scalp, and provide a natural-looking full head of hair.
