    Can you do latch hook extensions w Caucasian hair or will it cause too much breakage?

      Yes, you can do latch hook extensions with Caucasian hair. You do need to watch your tension, because it won't have the spring of tightly coiled hair. If the tension is too tight (no matter what ethnicity you are) you will see clusters of root bulbs being pulled from the scalp after a few days. As long as your tension isn't too heavy handed, latch hooks can be used for everyone. :)
