Do Hair Extensions Have to Damage Your Hair?
Hair extensions have the reputation for damaging hair, but that is not a problem with the latest generation of hair extensions. Through revolutionary techniques and using only the finest hair, some salons have set the bar high on hair extensions while cutting out the hair damage that went with old style extensions.
Attachment to Natural Hair
Because the best quality hair extensions do not use the usual methods of attaching extensions to hair—techniques like gluing, braiding, or sewing commercial hair into natural hair—there is no damage done. The newest techniques include hand-crafted clip-ins, which are secured to natural hair by using a rubber bar across the clip, and which protects the cuticle of hair from the metal bar. This eliminates the threat of hair damage.
Weight of Extensions
There is also a wonderful advancement in extensions: the Micro Ring. Utilizing small copper rings, chosen to be just the right size for you personally, extensions can be attached with ease and are completely painlessness, as well as being undetectable to the naked eye. Because of the revolutionary way to attach the hair extension to your own natural hair, gluing and other techniques, which cause ripping in hair upon removal, are completely obsolete. Both clip-ins and Micro Rings, do not create damage to hair due to weight and furthermore are almost invisible to you get the total sensation and look of natural hair – but with added glamour!
When extensions are removed or adjusted, as in the case of Micro Rings and Micro Ringlets, natural hair comes away with them. This gives the appearance of hair damage. In reality, these loose strands are the cause of natural hair growth and shedding. The average person loses around fifty hairs a day, and across eight to twelve weeks—the duration of a common wearing of extensions—that number averages around 3,500 hairs shed. Any hair that appears to have been lost during this process is cause by the removal of the hair extensions, not the natural hair. So there is nothing to fear from these techniques. The trick is simply to avoid bad salons that use glues etc.
Suitability for Women
Hair extensions are perfect for almost all people. For just a few, extensions are not recommended however. If there is already hair damage, loss, or poor hair condition, extensions might not be an option, but a good salon will tell you honestly if your hair is suitable for extensions. For this reason alone you should get good advice from a reputable salon. These days, your own hair can be as short as three to four inches long for thickening or four to five inches for lengthening of hair. The creation of Micro Ring and Micro Ringlet technologies have allowed for this shortness of length for attachment. These revolutionary techniques can attach extensions to hair that was too short or in too difficult of a location for hair extensions before.
Quality Hair Extensions Do No Damage
Quality hair extensions do not damage hair like the lesser-quality hair extensions do. The attachment process of extensions itself is entirely painless and easy, and the hair extensions themselves do not injure the natural hair to which they are attached. In the case of clip-ins and Micro Rings, the extensions completely blend with natural hair, to the point of being undetectable, and are completely safe and beautiful.
