But there has also been a huge increase in the number seeking help for the damage caused by extensions, according to trichologist Steve O'Brien of the London Centre Of Trichology.

He said two years ago the London Centre Of Trichology was treating 30 people a month but now it is more like 50 - and rising.

He said the number of enquiries has also gone up.

Experts want hair extensions using glue to be banned because they say the bonding is causing traction alopecia, which rips hair out by the roots causing small bald patches, reports the BBC.

The condition can continue to spread even after treatment is started making the damage irreparable.

The wrong bonding of hair can be the main culprit for damage.Precaution must be taken by the user and fusion of hair should not be at the same place repeatedly which could again result in damage to hair, usually this begins with very weak hair. The best way should be to use clip on Extensions, which are more stable and quick to use.
