    Default Does hair systems damage natural existing hair on the scalp?

    Im thinking about getting a tape hair system.

    Im a norwood 3, so I still have hair on my scalp. I would have to shave it and apply tape onto my scalp to hold the hair system.

    My question for those who have been using a hair systems for a while is does the tape affect the natural underlying hair?

    Does it damage or kill the underlying hair under the tape over time?

    I do think that continued use of tape or bonding material will cause damage to the underlying hair if used for long periods of time. I also have seen thinning/ hair loss form clips that were used to apply the hair system.
