Hair straightening is far from an innocuous operation. This alters the nature and quality of the hair. First of all let me do some chemistry . The technique of straightening consists in giving the hair a new structure by making it more malleable. To achieve this result, an alkaline product is first used which breaks the original chain of keratin molecules. Then an oxidizing product is added in order to neutralize the alkaline product. The immediate consequence is that the straightened hair is much more fragile and dry. Indeed, to make the hair more malleable, the straightener has for action to break the chains of proteins which are the essence of hair keratin. The chain reaction which follows is the drying of the lengths and the scalp because the water molecules which have the characteristic of clinging to the proteins normally have no support to.
Prefer the extensions to the weaves and additions of hair!
Women go more often to weaving and hair additions because their price is on average 4 to 10 times lower than the cost of a quality extension. This difference is quite justified, as the extensions do not alter the health of your hair in any way, unlike weaving and additions. With weaving, your hair does not breathe. The weaving is sewn to the root of the hair. Very bad because your scalp no longer breathes and is badly irrigated; Consequence: dried scalp, damaged hair etc … The additions are strongly discouraged because in most cases the tie destroys the hair.
Why you should use African natural hair extensions?
First of all we are the best pro when it comes to Afro hair for so long time now, and we regularly pose extensions on straightened hair without any problem, simply because:
– Our hairdressers are seasoned with the technique of laying extension for years, on any hair.
– Our commercial policy is clear: the customer must be satisfied and is not considered a cash dispenser (yes, it should be specified because many hairdressers are thinking only of turnover. ). Concretely, they refuse customers whose hair is too damaged or if for other reasons, hair extension is not desirable.
