It depends on the type of extensions and how they are applied, but the short answer for most of them is yes. Kia Styles (creator of KiaKnots) was fed up with ruining her client’s hair with other hair extension methods. During the first 12 years or her career, she had seen her fair share of hair thinning, matting, snapping and even some serious cases of traction alopecia. She set out to develop a healthy technique that is not only harmless to the natural hair, but can also help stimulating hair growth! That’s how Kia Knots was created. Kia Knots is the healthier hair extension using Kia’s very own Brazilian knot technique and the finest Remy hair.
