If I put the chemical stuff on my hair will it ruin the extentions?? I can't do nit busting on it as it will tear the extentions out........

its NOT funny!!!!!!!

Ok it is!!!!!!!

BareFootAngel Thu 28-Jul-05 01:05:54

you cant do the chemical stuff [not sure what it will do to your hair] but it would leave dead headlice in your hair!

Oh, mieow!

The chemical stuff has to be combed through so I think you'll have to have your extensions out whatever you do.

Oh dear! sparklymieow! you always manage to surprise me

Thing is its a special system because i have trichotilomania and its costs me over 1500 in total, because it covered the large patch I have pulled....... And if its removed I will pull again........

Ahem, sorry [ignorant emoticon]

sparklymieow Thu 28-Jul-05 01:10:05

No I think its funny too

Chandra Thu 28-Jul-05 01:10:18

Oh no Mieow, that sound even worse... can you ring the person who did the extensions and ask?

BareFootAngel Thu 28-Jul-05 01:10:19

sparklymieow Thu 28-Jul-05 01:12:13

They are in London, I am due to have to it adjusted, like last month...... whoops, I did ask once what would happened if I caught nits and they said it would have to be removed, and I can't afford another 740quid to have it have it replaced........

The extentions are specially twisted in, they don't come out easily

Janh Thu 28-Jul-05 01:15:11


Please tell me you are joking?

BareFootAngel Thu 28-Jul-05 01:15:48

how about shaving your head? would it suit you

sparklymieow Thu 28-Jul-05 01:17:03

I am not, its a special system that is put over the patch, They then pull your own hair though and attach connection, they then fill the space where you have no hair with fake hair, it toook 9 hours to do it.

Janh Thu 28-Jul-05 01:17:40

Ohhhh, mieow - do you have to pay for that or does the NHS help?

sparklymieow Thu 28-Jul-05 01:19:40

no the NHS refused to give me any funding I took out a loan. I was so happy when I had it done a year ago, and I have to go up every 6-8 weeks to have it put back on tightly, which cost 140pounds a time, but its worth it.

Okay, I'm not really sure how this would work but here's my idea.

When patients get lice in their eyelashes, we are advised to first smother them in vaseline and then pluck them off with tweezers. Do you think there's any possible way that would work?

Janh Thu 28-Jul-05 01:22:24

Have you actually got nits though or are you just worried that you have? No idea what it's like having extensions but could you just shampoo with tea tree and see how it goes?

BareFootAngel Thu 28-Jul-05 01:23:17

lice in eyelashes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

jabberwocky Thu 28-Jul-05 01:24:21

Umm, yes. I have been fortunate not to have had to do it, but I know several friends who have. Not something I'm looking forward to!
