Celebrities in Europe and the United States have been cheating their way to ‘perfectly groomed’ enviable thick, curly or straight and long hair for several years.
A common form of extension is the weave, a long strip of hair tied at the top with very fine, strong thread.
This can simply be clipped into the hair with grips, for a temporary fix, although this type often slips out and is easier to spot than permanent ones.
If you thought African hair extensions and weaves are bad, take a look at these:
Take Liz Hurley’s extensions, which were revealed when a breeze parted her hair. The broad strip of extensions did not sit flush with her roots, suggesting it had been clipped in rather than attached.
The worst faux pas occur when there isn’t enough hair at the crown to hide a weave, leaving a broad strip on display
Britney Spears, whose natural hair was too short to cover her extensions, was left exposed for this reason.

When she went out boldly with hair extensions.
Paris Hilton is another example of how not to treat weaved hair.
She once unwisely pulled her top layer into a ponytail.
Blowing in the wind: Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s lighter coloured weave was revealed during gusty weather
Yet another is Lindsay Lohan who appeared to have developed a thin patch at the back of her head, suggesting that the natural hair had been weighed due to to repeated, over-use: hair needs to be ‘rested or it will fall out.
Another culprit of bad weaves and hair extensions is Pamela Anderson, this has been the star’s style for years.
Celebrities hair is just like any other person’s hair, if it is badly taken care of or if the hair is submitted to years of heavy extensions, celebrities will experience bald patches and thinning of hair.
Kim Kardashian’s weave can easily be seen through her thinning hair.
Naomi Campbell who is extensively on weaves and extensions.
African hair is amazing, African women can easily achieve a thick and healthy looking mane and this should be embraced.
