Do Micro pin hair extensions damage your hair?


I have had hair extensions in my hair for 2 years, they were singly bonded in with glue. I changed them every 3 months. They ruined by hair, i had to cut it short. My friend recently got extensions put in using the mirco pins/clips, do these damage your hair?


Hi Michelle

I would recommend you give your hair a rest and try and keep it natural for a bit. Get your hair back into good condition. I guarantee you will find a style you like, there is so much out there for you to embrace, do your research, get a good stylist and go for something short. Failing that, go for a clip in extension, they’re really easy to manage at home and wont damage your hair. Micro pins are a gentle attachment method which does not involve glues, heat, or chemicals. Tiny tubes (micro-cylinders) are used to attach the strands with a special technique to your own hair. Easy to install and easy to remove by an expert. Applied in the correct way it’s a strong and safe method that will not damage your own hair.
