If applied correctly and by experienced hair extensions professionals, hair extensions will not damage your natural hair. An example of improper installation is if a stylist installs sew in hair extensions and the braids are too tight, which can cause too much tension at the root of the hair, therefore causing hair loss or hair damage. Always do your research, and make sure that your hair extensions are installed at a reputable salon.

Hair extensions are an extension of your natural hair. Bonded extensions are sewn under a layer of hair. Fusion extensions, which take longer than other kinds, involves gluing individual section to your natural hair; micro rings are sometimes used to attach hair extensions using metal micro loops or hoops. Tape in extensions involves taping or securing one piece of hair extension on either side of a piece of natural hair. Weave and sew in extensions typically involve braids and cornrows, which are used as a base to secure hair extensions to.
Proper installation and at-home care will ensure that your hair extensions last as long as possible. Generally, tape in hair extensions can last 6 to 8 weeks before they need to be installed, while glue in hair extensions last about 4 to 8 weeks. Clip in extensions can last one year or more if they are handled with care, washed and not worn every single day.
Permanent hair extensions are extensions that are attached as close to your scalp as possible, and which cannot be removed without the help of a professional hairstylist. Glue in extensions is considered permanent since they cannot be easily removed on your own. Micro ring hair extensions are also considered permanent since metal loops are clamped to small sections of your hair and require professional removal.
Depending on the quality, thickness, length and type of hair extensions, prices can range from $150 to $1,600+. A partial head of hair extensions costs less than a full head of hair, and you should also take into consideration upkeep and regular maintenance costs before deciding on the type of extensions you would like.
This can be a difficult question to answer since what is best for one customer might not be a good option for another customer. Generally, bonded or fusion hair extensions are a great option and work best on medium to thick hair.,
