Harry Situation: Daniel Radcliffe's Hair Extension Woes Discussed
Daniel Radcliffe, the actor famous for playing Harry Potter, is sporting extensions for an upcoming role in "Frankenstein" now filming in London and is none too pleased about it, calling them a nightmare.
“I don't mind how it looks, but I mind dealing with it," says Radcliffe. "The amount of work it takes, having to dry it — doing anything to it is a f------ nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women."
Bianca Arussi, Co-Owner of J'Adore Salon Beverly Hills and Certified Great Lengths Extension Expert, says whoever did his extensions did a really good job – they blend in with his natural hair vey well. But why is it so uncomfortable for him? "He might have a weave, which can be heavy and uncomfortable," says Bianca, who recommends individual extensions. "Or he may just be one of those people who don’t like the feeling of something attached so close to their scalp." Radcliffe also noted, "it's real, dead human hair," which Bianca says is the way to go. "It’s more manageable than synthetic hair - it never tangles, and it’s just like your own hair. You can let it air dry and it blends in wonderfully with your natural hair."
Bianca's tips for helping Radcliffe with this "Harry" situation:
Be sure to brush hair twice per day
Apply leave-in conditioner from mid-shaft to ends, or use a good serum
Replace extensions every 4-5 months, depending on how fast the hair grows; after about an inch of growth, it’s time for some fresh extensions
