However, it does depend on how it's installed. When installed correctly and maintained properly, your natural hair should actually be healthier than before you put in hair extensions. As long as the correct amount of tension is applied to your hair and the extensions are moved up every 6-8 weeks your natural hair will be healthy and grow faster! Incorrect application can result in traction alopecia. This is when there is too much tension applied to the scalp and this causes the follicles to be damaged or ripped out completely. The condition is reversible but it also can leave permanent scarring on the scalp that prevents new growth from occurring. This is why it is so important to research your artist and make sure they are properly trained. Ask your stylist if they are certified with NBR and The DKW Styling Academy.
