We get asked this all the time - and the answer is no!
What is a surprise to many is that hair extensions, when properly applied, can actually help your own hair to grow and become healthier.
This is because, when you wear hair extensions, you start to put the heat pressure and styling pressure onto the hair extensions themselves (which are generally longer than your hair).. over time your own hair (at the ends in particular) stops suffering from all the over styling and it stops eroding at the ends..
After a year or so of wearing hair extensions many clients are amazed at how healthy their own hair looks.
It happens over and over again in our salon!
So, no - you don't need to take breaks from wearing hair extensions... However, if you just feel like not wearing them for a while, you can keep your hair aside and have it refitted at a later date (no extra costs are involved).
