I can only speak to the bead ones. yes it will damage your hair. A little. you will lose some as the hair grows. It will look great until your hair grows an inch or so and then you’ll have to get them re done. You can wash and style pretty normally, except you have to be careful with brushing and combing. 

Done well, it’s a great (but expensive) option. for wedding hair it’s a great idea. It gets expensive bc you do have to buy new hair every other time, plus the time it takes to apply. I hope that helps.

I have really thin, fine hair and I can not do tape or glue without a huge amount of damage done. I can’t really speak for the microbeads without heat, because I had them applied with heat. They started falling out after a week, because apparently my showers were too hot and my hair was too silky. The only success with extensions I’ve found are with sew-ins. But the big hurdle there is finding someone with experience installing sew ins on white hair. Maybe the microbeads without heat work better though, I would just really look into them.

sunflowers121 :  my hair is thin and fine and straight. I think I paid like $300 for the hair each time (every other application), and to apply them it was like $4-500. I live in Orange County, CA and that is on the lower end from what I understand.
