Human hair extensions are costlier compared to other hair extensions since they look more natural, last longer and are easier to style and maintain. However, despite the ease of maintenance, they still do require good, strong under-lying natural hair, which can support and nourish them. Human hair extensions are cut away from their natural source of moisture and nourishment. Hence, apart from additional outside supplements, the human hair extensions also depend on the natural hair for their daily sustenance. While the grooming and maintenance of human hair extensions is taken care of as per the advice given by professionals, not much focus is given to nurturing natural hair which helps to sustain the human hair extensions. The health of natural hair is equally important for healthy human hair extensions supported by them. For this, the first requisite is a healthy diet containing supplements which promote the growth of natural hair. While those using human hair extensions to conceal imperfections or deficiencies in the natural hair or scalp do not have a choice, for those who use human hair extensions as a fashion accessory, a healthy scalp can help in the maintenance of the human hair extensions. Due to their weight, adhesion and styling, human hair extensions strain the scalp and natural hair. For this reason, the natural hair should be nourished with extra vitamin supplements, apart from those in the daily diet, to help them deal with this additional strain.
