Hello beautiful souls!

With the ever-evolving world of hair extensions, it's easy to get lost in the myriad of options available. Today, we're diving deep into the LA Weave method, a favorite among many for its natural look and ease of installation. 

But the burning questions remain: Does the LA Weave damage hair? And how long can you safely rock this style? Let's unravel these mysteries together!

Does the LA Weave Damage Hair?


The good news is, when done correctly, the LA Weave method is one of the least damaging hair extension techniques. Unlike some methods that involve glue or heat, the LA Weave relies on anchor points placed throughout your hair and wefts, ensuring minimal tension on your natural hair. However, like all extensions, it's crucial to have them installed by a professional. This brings us to our next point...

How Long Can You Safely Keep Them In?

For optimal hair health and to keep that fresh, just-left-the-salon look, we recommend keeping your LA Weave extensions in for no longer than 8-10 weeks. Regular maintenance and check-ins with your stylist will ensure your natural hair remains healthy and vibrant.
