Hair extensions are a popular way to add length and volume to your hair. They can be made from human hair, synthetic hair, or a combination of both.
It's important to understand that hair extensions "can be" damaging to your natural hair if not applied properly by a professional.
Let's discuss the potential risks associated with hair extensions and how to use them safely.
When hair extensions are applied incorrectly, they can cause damage to your natural hair.
This can include breakage, thinning, and even balding.
To avoid these issues, it is important to use quality extensions and to have them applied by a professional stylist.
Hair extensions can actually help your hair grow, because they do the work for you. Simple volume and length is easier to care for than trying to make your hair hold a style or look a certain way.
Damage can also be done by the person wearing the hair extensions! This generally happens if you don't follow the simple after care protocol.
Note from Christina: it's been a hot minute since I've been asked if my work damages the natural hair! I accredit this to my two decades of experience. What I have noticed is a surge of damage being done by stylists who use "fantasy marketing".
Do yourself a favour and go to a stylist who has the credentials to back up the promise of thicker, fuller hair.
