Great quality hair extensions, when applied safely and properly, DO NOT damage your hair. Proper tools and application, coupled with diligent home care and maintenance, means your natural hair can grow in healthier and never break. At Extology, we have utilized hair extensions to grow out post-chemo hair as well as chemically or color-damaged hair. Everything we choose to work with is chosen with your hair health as our priority.
Hair extensions can cause damage if the extensions are not properly customized for your individual needs, or if the quality of the hair does not allow for healthy hair growth. This can occur if:
-The hair extensions are too heavy, too thick or too tight.
-There is not enough hair to support the weight of the (incorrectly-sized) attachment, which can cause the hair to rip out of the hair follicle.
-The hair is crimped too tight and strands eventually break underneath the wrong bond material.
-The attachment is not sealed tight enough or the adhesive was not fully removed when new adhesive was added for replacement, which can cause mold to grow on your hair underneath under the bond.
