Do Hair Extensions Damage Your Hair?

I repeat!

Do Hair Extensions Damage Your Hair?

One of the most frequently asked questions about hair extensions is “will hair extensions damage your hair?” The short answer is: they can, but they shouldn’t.


Taking Care of Your Extensions

Here are the 3 reasons why at Empress Hair Extensions, we are confident that we will not damage your hair! 


Home Care

First of all, having extensions means more effort on taking care of your hair and your scalp! Always work with approved products and brushes. Most extension brands manufacture hair care products and brushes that are specifically designed to protect your hair extension application and your natural hair. Purchasing these products and following all at-home hair-care recommendations is a way to make sure you are doing your part to protect your investment, and protect the health of your own hair.


Your Stylist is your Savior!

We have been saying this since the last time we post the blog "Being Choosy About Who Applies Your Hair Extensions" If you are choosing carefully on which style or what type of extensions, you should also be sure you are choosing a hair extension attachment method that is right for your hair type and lifestyle. For you to determine the method and the ways on how to do this, GO TO YOUR STYLIST. An experienced stylist should show you several different attachment methods and explain why a particular method would work for you. Hair extensions are not a one size fits all kind of service and if your stylist is only familiar with one type of attachment, this may not be a stylist who is experienced enough to perform a hair extension application safely.


Lastly! When wearing hair extensions, it’s very important to keep up with your scheduled routine maintenance. If you are told your hair extensions need to be reapplied every 6 weeks but you think you can stretch it to 8 weeks because of scheduling or budget, you are doing yourself a giant disservice. Most hair extension professionals will tell you that the majority of damage they see is from hair extensions that are left in beyond the recommended time. Leaving extensions in for longer than they are intended to last can result in your natural hair breaking or shedding during the removal process.

At Empress Hair Extensions, we are very proud to say that our customer service team will be able to help you with all the questions you have. And as the owner of the store and a lover of Extensions, I will personally answer all your questions!



Now! If you have your Empress Hair Extensions applied by a highly trained extension professional while you follow home-care instructions you will enjoy the thicker, fuller, longer hair that our extensions promise! And the least you will do is maintain it so you won't need to worry about damaging your own hair.
