Why does my head itch when I wear hair extensions?Updated 2 years ago

This is very normal , especially for those who may be new to hair extensions. Your scalp is going through an adjustment period before getting used of the hair extensions, which are typically heavier that your natural hair. The added weight can cause a mild strain on your scalp, which is the reason the itchiness occurs after you've installed extensions.

You may also experience itchiness from the beard of the weft - its small spiked hairs that may prick the skin, causing the sensation of itch.
