Question: Can you tell me which method is less stressful on the hair. I have very fine thin hair and am currently wearing hair extensions. I have noticed that as the hairdresser takes the extensions out to replace them, I have been losing a lot of my own hair. I am starting to feel very down about this as my hair is thin enough as it is. Also the extensions I have always look piecy, not look natural and separated enough. Can you please offer me some good advice. I have been stuffed around a lot. I have the bond method. Not pre bond. Which method is the safest way for me to go for?
