Are hair extensions damaging for your hair?
Hair Extensions can be damaging for your hair if you use the wrong method or the extensions put in are of a low quality or applied wrongly. You should be careful to use hair extensions if your hair is dry and brittle and damaged from over colouring it or heat damage. Everyone’s hair is different so it’s best to have a consultation before to see if your hair is suitable for hair extensions. Having in extensions for a long period of time can also be damaging to your hair so it’s sometimes best to give you hair a break for a couple of months if you want to carry on having them.
How should you look after your hair extensions?
You should always use a good clarifying shampoo and a hydrating mask (instead of a conditioner). If you have blonde extensions then use a purple conditioning mask to stop the colour lifting. Blondes may lift and can go brassy if you use heated straightening irons or tongs. It’s always best to adjust the temperature to 160 degrees and apply a heat protector before you use any heated appliances. We also recommend not swimming in chlorine or salt water as this may strip the colour and use a leave in treatment to help hydrate and keep the hair extensions in good condition. For styling you should always apply serum as this will help the cuticle stay smooth and stop the hair from tangling. A definite no no is colouring your hair extensions as this will never guarantee the colour you want and may damage the hair.

“I came to Josh years ago after a previous salon had completely destroyed my hair with extensions. He rectified the damage in time for a TV appearance and I’ve been a loyal customer ever since. His hair extensions are the best I’ve ever had and the quality and strength of my hair has actually improved! I started with tape extensions, then they did a total transformation from blonde to brunette and now I have the greater lengths cold fusion extensions with Justyna. I’ve had my colour done with various colourists there and they’re all fantastic. Even though I’ve recently moved further out of London I still travel to see Josh and his team. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hair. They’ve proved themselves to be experts time and time and time again! Thank you for all your wonderful work. You have a customer for life xxx”
“I’ve been getting tape extensions here for almost 3 years now and the quality of the hair has always been amazing! Joshua is super skilled and even uses the extensions to create highlighted and balayage looks for me without having to colour damage my natural hair. Would highly recommend!!”
“I have had extensions for many years all over the world and I can honestly say that josh is in another league. My hair has never ever looked better and I have never had so many wonderful compliments. I would rate josh as simply the very best hair extension in London”
“Joshua really is the best in London at executing hair extensions – I went somewhere else once just to fix them, for convenience, as it was close to my office and the difference was stark. I urgently booked in with him to rectify the situation and he even accommodated me at an early appointment despite the fact that he was so busy, which I am most for grateful and will never go anywhere else again.Thank you Joshua!”
“I have been coming here for tape hair extensions with Josh for three years and I wouldn’t go anywhere else in London!”
“Amazing hairdressers! Did a complete transformation with my hair today… colour change from blonde to brunette, tape hair extensions, cut & blowdry! Great service and hair looks & feels amazing! Thanks Joshua! “
