Hair weaves are a common method of hair extension for several ethnic groups, especially African American women. The hair weave comes with many risks with the number one problem being they cause tension to the hair follicle. This constant tensions can result in Traction Alopecia. Traction alopecia is a form of alopecia, or gradual hair loss, caused primarily by pulling force being applied to the hair.
A hair weave is sewn onto a braid directly on the scalp and this can be itchy and very unnatural looking. Fusion hair extensions are a much better alternative since they are tension free and are placed away from the scalp.
Fusion hair extensions promote healthy hair growth, the scalp can be stimulated and washed freely, they can be worn up in a ponytail and most importantly, they are tension free! There is even less maintenance required with fusion hair extensions than a hair weave and they last for up to five months. Finally, clients can still relax their hair and enjoy the benefits of hair and scalp therapeutic services while wearing fusion extensions.
