Has she used any hot hair appliances? The issue with glue in extensions are that you cannot get, for instance, a flat iron too close to the setting, or the radiating heat will melt it, causing an oozy mess, and loss of the extension.
Extension life will vary on how well the person takes care of the hair, and the expertise of the stylist. I had mine in for many many months before so much as even one fell out. I opted to try weave after, and I now know how to do it myself. I far, far prefer weave to glue ins.
If she has not used a heat appliance, make sure to tell her to be careful when she brushes her hair. The best way to do it is to grasp the hair (lightly) into pigtails, just under the glue settings, and brush from the bottom in short strokes and doing likewise moving upward..that way there is no pull or strain on the setting.
If none of these are the reason, you should go back to the stylist - he or she may not have been experienced. As said, I had no issues whatsoever with mine, and from what I recall, I had them in for quite a long time - longer than most women wear them, and none fell out for many months.
If you have the funds, you may want to opt for a weave - ask them if they can do it on the house because of the bad job (if they were at fault) with the glue ins. Weave allows you to use any appliance close to the scalp, and, aside from some shedding and tangling, is far superior to glue ins when it comes to volume and removal.
If you want to see the difference, in my port - the very first image on the top row (the playboy one) I have glue in extensions in.
In the second row on the furthest right, I have a weave in.
glue ins cost over 2 thousand. and, because I did my full head, I was there in the salon ALL DAY. As for removal, I knew it was time when, after many months without seeing any fall out, they started falling out at random times - like at dinner, where I made quite the first impression LOL!! Much of my hair at the nape of my neck broke off, and, just prior to getting them removed, the radiating heat from my flat iron melted a few, they slipped out, and the glue once again hardened in the middle of my hair. It was a gooey, then tangly mess.
Weave - full head. 160 bucks. More volume, longer lasting, cleaner removal. I shed virtually none of my natural hair upon removal, and was only in the salon for about 3 hours.
If you compare both of those images, you can see the difference in volume. Both were full head, but far, far more volume with weave and a HUGE savings in cost.
Weave is the way to go - no contest.
My fiance just had hair extensions put in for our wedding. She went on Saturday (yesterday) to have hair extensions put in. These are the type that are glued to the scalp.
She has not washed her hair yet but a big 4inch long piece (at the base of her scalp near the neck) has already fallen out. Now she is worried that they might all fall out by the wedding (in 9 days), we leave on tuesday.
Does anyone know how this can happen? Is this normal? How long are these typically supposed to last?
