The women of the Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Denmark and Norway are known for their blonde hair and light coloured eyes. While blonde hair may be desirable for some, for many women with naturally blonde hair, this also means their hair is fine and doesn't reach desired thickness. Of course, it isn't just blondes with thin hair problems as many women from all ethnicities have hair with this characteristic. My first advice is always to accept yourself for the way you were made but I also say there is no shame in doing something about the things you want to change! Thanks to The Swedish technique of Hair Extensions there is a solution to thin hair!
An interesting fact about the origin of blonde hair: A recent Japanese study says that blonde hair originated in Northern Europe 11,000 years ago due to a lack of Vitamin D. Because many Northern regions spend a great deal of time without sunshine (a big source for Vitamin D) their populations evolved with thinner skin and hair to allow for more sun to penetrate.
So for you blondes with thin, fine hair - it's not your fault! Being a hair extension stylist I've always known that natural blondes frequently have finer hair and that's why I developed The Swedish Technique. It's a special method of hair extension designed specifically for people with thin, fine hair. African-American, Caucasion, Asian, dark haired, red heads - fine hair is common in all ethnicities and hair types. Some more than others and for different reasons (usually genetic but frequently diet related).
The Swedish Technique is specifically suited for women with fine hair because it uses a single thread and eye-lash wefted hair to create a super flat, extremely natural look. Many techniques of hair extension were developed in the African-American community at a time when thin hair was not nearly as common. In fact, due to the thickness of most African-American women's hair there wasn't a need for extremely flat hair extensions (weaves, sew-ins - all are considered forms of hair extensions). As our culture evolves genetically (inter-racial relationships etc) traits that existed primarily in one ethnic group are now coming up in others. When it comes to hair some women are grateful for this others are not - luck of the draw you could say!
Today, hair extensions are as popular as any form of self enhancement. I like to think of hair extensions as a fashion accessory no different than putting on make-up or working out to improve your outer appearance!
