One of the best benefits of wearing extensions while transitioning is that it gives your own hair a break from daily styling. Women who are transitioning are at a higher risk of damaging their own hair simply because they are dealing with a new texture that's much different from their relaxed hair. "Anytime you are even combing your hair it can break, especially if you haven't dealt with that hair since you were four years old.
