Many hair stylist recommend wearing hair extensions for no more than 2-3 months.  The reason being that we normally lose anywhere from 50-150 hairs everyday.  Without wearing hair extensions, these hairs just fall to the ground or come out in our hair brushes.  But, if you are wearing hair extensions, these hairs cannot fall out because the are attached to the hair extension.  So, these fallen hairs will accumulate, leaving the extension hair with less and less hair holding it in place.  This can result in the extension hair falling out and pulling the extension hair with it, or even causing severe tangling and mattes because of all the loose hairs around the root area.
