She's asking fans to take a break from wearing theirs so that they won't end up like her.
Geordie lass Sophie Kasaei is known for her dark lashes, bronze tan and flowing hair extensions, but the reality star has learned a hard lesson about the damage these extensions can cause.
Taking to MTV’s official Instagram account, she said, “Because of all the extensions I’ve been getting, I’ve suffered from Contraction Alopecia, which means that I’ve lost hair on the sides and that it may never come back.”
“And that’s not because of the extensions that I’m getting in. It’s because of all the years I’ve been tormenting my hair,” she continued.
“Going forward, I just want to start looking after my hair and I just want to make people aware that if you are getting extensions give your hair a break in between because you don’t want to end up with bald patches like this.”
