10 Celebrities That Have Gone Public About Wearing Hair Extensions

Wonder why most celebrities have hair that looks so glamorous?  Ninety-seven percent  of them know the ultimate hair secret: hair extensions. Writing for Condé Nast-owned, Bella Cacciatore  argues  that “Hair extensions are so ubiquitous in Hollywood these days, it’s almost more shocking when somebody doesn’t wear them.” If so many celebrities are wearing hair extensions, why do many of them never admit it?

In November 2020, he’d suffered a “very mild and brief bout of COVID-19.”  He also recounts an anecdotal story of a friend who developed suspicious respiratory symptoms. His friend had been taking a number of supplements said to offer protection, but was still feeling awful. As it turns out, the one thing he’d not taken was quercetin, and as soon as he did, that same day, his symptoms started to dissipate. This experience, Murray says, “is consistent with the results from two clinical trials” that were recently published. Quercetin seems to be a safe, far less expensive, and easier-to-obtain and it works by a similar mechanism, driving zinc into the cells to stop viral replication.
