Welcome to PF, Avanaco.
I wouldn't even be thinking about extensions if I were you. For the kind of hair loss that you're talking about, there must be a clinical cause. Are you undergoing chemo or radiation treatment for a medical condition?
Anyhow, I'd recommend just buying a decent wig (which should be available for $20 or so if you shop well) to maintain your dignity until you find out why you're losing your hair. If an existing treatment isn't to blame, ask your doctor what's going on.
 
I'd stop using so many hair products as well for a while. Could be that's making whatever the problem is worse. Try just washing your hair in a mild shampoo for a week or so.

Have you been working around chemicals?

A few years ago, I worked in a chemistry lab that had poor ventilation. I started losing my hair...ironic, since I don't find bald men unattractive, but I'm a woman!!

It pretty much grew back after I left that job.

I agree with Danger...if you're experiencing sudden hair loss, see a doctor. Treat the cause and it'll grow back (hopefully).

If you're using a lot of hair products that might be damaging it too, back off. Try using just a mild baby shampoo as it grows back in, but you might also need a prescription medicated shampoo from your doctor, or some other treatment, so make seeing a doctor the first step. If you're female, it's spring, wear a nice spring hat to hide it until you know what to do further (you certainly don't want to stress your hair with extensions if you're having trouble with it).

After a doctor checks you out, and if the problem dose not effect your physical health in anyway, if you still think having hair will allow you to do your job or go through life with your head held high...then you only got a small amount of things that you can do...
1. Buy a wig
2. Get hair inplant's
3. hair extension's

Untill there is a pill that tiggers the growth of hair in one section of your body.. those are the only picks there are for having a head full of hair.. Im working on away to do such, I'm tierd of all the bosly hair ads saying that there the only way to get a full natural head of hair -.-. Anyway's, you could go with the wig, it would be the cheapest and fastest solution to your problem. And there are alot of people that have them and people cant tell that they do. Just try not to let your hair problem be a problem that will effect the life that you want to live.

But hopfully it was caused by decreased activity of the pituitary or thyroid glands, this would mean that its only temporary baldness and would not result in permanent baldness.
Allso the early stages of syphilis and a diet containing to much vitamin A can create temporary baldness, which gives you more the reason to get your self checked out by a doctor, before you deal with the issue of lack of hair. :/

I disagree with Danger that one's dignity has anything to do with the ability of their hair to stay on. But I agree that a doctor's visit is a good idea as this might be symptomatic of some deeper health problem.

The prospect of baldness is obviously a cause of distress to Avanaco; that's the only reason that I mentioned it. I agree that it shouldn't be an issue (even though I assumed the OP to be female), but some people do have strong feelings about it.

How about getting a paper bag?

You'll be able to use that to keep it in.

If your head "look bald head", as you say, what are you going to attach the hair extensions to? You can't just glue them to the scalp; they have to be sewn or glued into your hair.

If you have thinning hair and have extensions put in, your problems could get worse. Extensions can weaken the hair you have left.

Honestly, I don't know why I am replying. This really looks like a set-up for spam.

As an old man once said many years ago when I was waiting to get my hair cut at the barber shop: "You have all the right hair in all the wrong places".

Of course it's spam. Notice how we all address our responses to the OP, while aponivin talks to the rest of us.

Given that, I defer to (doctor, doctor) Brewnog's advice.

A paper bag is multi-purpose. You can put two holes in it and wear it over your head.

I was wondering if a mentor might have removed a http://www.spam.com" [Broken] from aponivin's post.

The mentors have decided this is probably spam, and are just waiting for the grand revelation in a forthcoming post. Then comes the axe.

Well, do the extensions come in colours? Even better - two-tone? :biggrin:

I think 64 colours like Croyola box would be really cool.

Maybe irridescent! Glow in the dark!

Well over here, we have something called Johnson's baby shampoo, that's really good as a mild shampoo. But I don't know what products you have?
