Will Hair Extensions Ruin My Natural Hair?

So, you want to rock the long, luscious hair of your dreams and you’ve figured out a way to do just that – hair extensions. The only problem? You don’t want them to damage your natural locks.


We’re not going to lie – many installation techniques have a bad reputation for ruining your real hair. But the LDL method is different. We know that you don’t want to choose between keeping your hair healthy and getting the flawless look that only extensions can give you. That’s why we created a weft installation method that not only protects but helps your locks grow simultaneously – a method that we’ve been using on clients for 12 years.

How do we do it?

LDL doesn’t use any glues, tapes or bonds throughout our installation process. This is important as these are the components that often cause the most damage to your hair in more traditional techniques. Instead, we use a beaded tracking method to create multiple thick anchor points that we then attach your weft to. These anchor points ensure that your extensions stay firmly attached to your natural hair over time, reducing the likelihood of your weft becoming detached or loose. With us, it’s all about giving you the confidence to wear your hair every day without ever having to worry that it looks anything less than flawless.

Protecting your natural hair

We don’t use any chemicals throughout our installation process. This is one of the main reasons why we are able to confidently say that our method protects your hair, as the glues and bonds used in more common processes play a large role in causing damage. Without them, your hair is in heaven!


Okay, so now you know that our extensions don’t hurt your hair… but you know us; we always like to take things one step further.

Our unique method doesn’t just preserve the quality of your locks, but protects it and gives it the ability to gain back its health and strength. The way we install your wefts creates a curtain-like effect on your hair. Because your natural locks sit beneath the extensions, they are better protected from the day-to-day breakage many people experience from brushing, styling and other techniques.


We know it sounds too good to be true – but our long list of happy, gorgeous clients prove that we can back up every promise we make.

Possible for all hair types

Now, we know what you’re thinking; you must have to have naturally thick, healthy hair for this to work. Well, we’re happy to report that this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, many of our clients have come to us with tired, lifeless hair only to take their extensions out a couple of years later to find that their natural locks look absolutely gorgeous!


We can even help people who suffer from hair loss. Many of our clients have conditions like Alopecia or Trichotillomania, which cause severe thinning or loss of the hair. Even when you have barely any natural locks to work with, we can ALWAYS sort something out for you! Our passion is making each and every client look and feel stunning – because you are worth all that and more!

So now that you know there is absolutely no risk to your natural hair, why not book in for a complimentary consultation with LDL? With us, you can get the hair you’ve always dreamed of! Call us today on 03 9857 4689 to book yours today!
