Our hairstyle can give quite a few pointers to our lifestyle and state of health. In order to show style and good health, people – both in and out of public life – take the help of Brazilian extensions to accessorize and augment their natural hair. Brazilian extensions are temporary but a simple method of boosting the length, luster and color of the hair. But ignorance of proper installation and maintenance of Brazilian extensions can either cause people to avoid them, or, worse, damage their natural hair and scalp while applying the Brazilian extensions. This damage is sometimes irreversible and the Brazilian extensions get blamed for it. In actual fact, it is not the extensions per se, but the application method and/or the upkeep of the Brazilian extensions which results in this damage. To get the best out of your Brazilian extensions, it is important that you take the pains of updating yourself on the correct installation procedure and upkeep. Temporarily applied Brazilian extensions such as machine weft extensions, hand-tie wefts, clip in extensions, etc., may not cause long-term damage to natural hair. It is the more detailed fusion extensions and Brazilian weaves, which require more care.
