The Best Hair Extensions Without Damage


If you chose suitable hair extensions for your hair type, and look after them properly, they will not cause damage to your hair. Simple!

As mentioned in our previous Myths post, hair extensions may cause damage if the application is unsuitable for your hair type and/or if you have them in too long (we advise three months) without maintenance.

There are so many varieties of hair extensions. These include temporary clip-ins, semi-permanent tape-in hair extensions and more permanent solutions such as weaves. There is also a huge range of applications which includes gluing and sewing which can leave your hair unhappy. 

Luckily, at the Hair Alchemist, we’re experts in all aspects of hair extensions! This is why we use micro rings, the safest attachment method for permanent hair extensions. Micro rings don’t require any sort of adhesive or sewing, the doesn’t place any undue strain on the natural hair, they are easy to manage and feel as natural as the hair you were born with.

You can rest assured that we have got you covered from consultation to aftercare, ensuring you leave the salon comfortable and confident.
