Will installing Bohyme™ hair extensions hurt my natural hair?

There are great benefit of installing Bohyme™ hair extensions. For instance, they can make thin hair look fuller and more voluminous, and they can transform your short hair instantly.  We offer both temporary solutions like clip-ins and wigs, and more permanently solutions like weaves, pro-tips, and tape-ins.

While hair extensions can transform your look almost instantly, they could cost damage to your natural hair if not properly cared for. Hair extensions equal responsibility. Depending if you are a low maintenance kind of person or a glam it up all the time type a gal, you should consider hair extension options carefully.

Hair extensions in most cases will not damage your natural hair if the hair stylist is a skilled technician and will do a proper hair installation. Additionally, depending on the type of installation method, some methods will cause more stress or less stress on your scalp depending on the length of time the hair will be worn. One thing to consider is when getting hair extensions is that you should choose extensions that are not heavier than your own hair. It is important to do your research and find the best installation method and type of hair extension that is best suited for your hair type. 

 We recently develop an ultra-thin flat weft called Bohyme3 Harmony Seamless Weft, which is 40% thinner than a regular machine-tied weft. If you have thin hair but want to do a sew-in installation, you can choose Bohyme™ Harmony Seamless Weft™ or Bohyme's™ Hand-Tied wefts. The benefits to a thinner weft is that hair installation feels more comfortable and the lighter and durable it is, the more comfort the wearer will have as there is unnecessary stress at the roots due to less weight. 

The most important consideration to understand is that hair extensions do not damage your hair. The determine factor is whether the person who is doing it and you, the person who is wearing them, knows how to maintain them. Go to a professional who knows how to do extensions, who has the proper training. Hair extensions damage often happen when the extensions are attached too tightly. For example, If you are wearing hair extensions that are heavier than your natural hair with a sew-in, it will put your hair under constant stress as it is constantly tugging at your roots. When hair is frequently pulled, either by braids, extensions, or even tight ponytails, the hair around the hairline begins to recede and permanently damage your hair. You should go back to your stylist for maintenance at least once a month. You can adjust your extensions, or even reinstall them depending on the type of extensions.

Bohyme™ Hair Extension shouldn’t hurt your natural hair if they are applied properly. Educate yourself about hair extensions, go to a reputable professional, and make sure to follow the aftercare and maintenance your stylist suggest to avoid potential damaging your locks.
