Hello everyone.
 
I am in need of advice.  Last April my 36" red hair was burned off in a traumatic accident.  My hair is very thick and curly when short, wavy when long.  Of the 7" inches I have left only the 2" of new growth can be saved.  The current non-style cut that I have looks terrible!!  My current 'look' is completely unacceptable - I am too shook up to even walk my dog.  To make it more of a challenge for me I am 43 years old and incredibly nervous as to how it will grow back in.  I know I have at least a 3 - 4 year wait for it to reach bsl.  I have researched hair extensions while it grows back out but I am terrified of making things worse.  I have contracted with a reputable professional salon for sew in extensions but I am worried that I will end up with two heads of hair (big hair) during the growing out process.  Does anyone have any experience or information they can share about extensions?  Will hair extensions work with very thick hair curly/wavy hair, or will it make it worse?
 
Any advice or info you can share would be greatly appreciated.

i would stay away from sew ins. it  could potentially damage your new growth.
go to someone who is licensed, certifed and reputable.

Hi TanglesRC,
Thank you so much for your reply.  I did check out your website and I am excited about the hairlocs method.  I can't tell if this method will work on only 2" of hair or if the tubes will be visible.....  If it would work it would be fabulous!  I have found a local contact in Colorado and will call them in the morning for a consultation.  I am hoping they can help me......
