If you want to try extensions on damaged hair, I Love Slavic Hair is here to help you! Often, stylists do not recommend such a procedure for weakened and thinned hair. And it does make sense, because it increases the risk of traumatizing your locks.
The leading Canadian company, which supplies tools and consumables for extensions, gives you some advice on how to do this beauty treatment so as not to damage the hairstyle.
How Do I Know if My Damaged Hair Is Suitable for Hair Extensions?
All of us have more or less damaged hair. We regularly dry them with hairdryers, use irons and curls. It all affects the quality of our hair.
In some cases, thin hair is not an obstacle for extensions. However, you should definitely refrain from it if:
- Your hair is aggressively falling out. This can happen because of, for example, hormonal imbalance;
- The locks are so thin that they can’t handle any extra weight;
- You do not have time to properly care for the extended strands, which can lead to even more trauma to the natural hairstyle.
Can Hair Extensions Be Done on Damaged Hair?
If you have decided to make hair extensions I Love Slavic Hair advises 2 techniques, which are considered the most delicate:
- Hand- tied weft extensions
In this case, the stylist makes a thin braid around the head, and then pre-made wefts are attached to it.
Wefts are made by hand, so they can be of any weight and length convenient for you. You can choose the option that will not overload the hairstyle.
The perfect option is the use of micro bonds. This treatment is great for weakened soft curls.
It is also important to choose a light weight that will not weaken the roots, and to find an experienced stylist who knows all the nuances of this extension technique.
In addition to the extension technique, the brand recommends paying attention to the material used. Opt for virgin Slavic hair. This is soft and manageable fine texture hair that is suitable for owners of damaged curls. Due to their weightless structure, they will not overload the roots and are almost not felt in wearing.
In some cases, this beauty treatment can even help repair your hair. The extended strands serve as a kind of barrier that will protect the natural hair from damage.
