Are professional hair extensions damaging to natural hair?

With proper application, at-home maintenance, and timely removal, extensions should not cause damage to your natural hair.

How many packs/rows do I need?

The amount of hair needed for an application depends on your natural hair and the overall desired look. On average, a partial application of fusion or tape extensions requires 1-3 packs, and a full application will require 4-7+. Typically, a partial application of weft extensions is 1-2 rows, and a full is 3-4. 

How long will the application process take?

The application takes 30-40 minutes per pack of fusion and 10-15 minutes for tape. Weft extensions take roughly 30-45 minutes per row. 

Can extensions be colored and styled with heat?

Extensions can be toned at the same level or darker. Because the extensions go through a chemical treatment prior to installation, it is not recommended to lighten them. All color enhancements and changes should be completed by a professional.

 All Tony Odisho extensions are made of 100% human hair and can be heat-styled like your natural hair. Lower heats are encouraged to prolong the integrity of your extensions.

Will the extensions look and feel natural?

Choosing the right color and installing the proper amount of hair are both key to ensuring that your extensions blend properly with your natural hair. It is important to keep in mind that hair extensions are an organic product and textures may vary.

How long do they last?

With proper care and maintenance, fusion extensions typically last about 3-4 months. Tape and weft extensions last about 6-8 weeks and can be reapplied up to two more times after removal. Longevity may vary based on the rate of your natural hair growth.

How can I remove them?

Fusion, tape, and weft extensions should always be removed by a professional within the recommended time frame. Leaving them in beyond the suggested window often results in matting and breakage.

Will my hair feel thinner after removal?

Yes! Having professional hair extensions does not result in hair loss, but it is normal to feel that you have “less hair” than you did before your extensions were installed.  People naturally shed 50-100 strands of hair per day. During your extensions wear, some of that shedding stays in the bonds until your extensions are removed. Additionally, extensions "become" a part of your hair while they are installed. You will naturally get used to having more hair than you typically have, and this feeling will consequently leave along with your extensions upon removal.

Am I a good candidate for extensions?

The best way to determine if extensions are right for you is to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, you and your stylist will discuss your lifestyle, hair maintenance routine, and expectations. You will also decide which type of extensions will best complement your needs.
