Daily maintenance for Tape Extensions
Keep your hair extensions clean and untangled by taking time to care for them every day.Do not comb or brush the hair extensions while hair is wet.
Never sleep with wet hair extensions. Always make sure the hair is dry and pulled up. Preferably put into a braid to keep hair from tangling at night.Brush the hair with a hair extension or wet brush several times a day. Be sure to brush properly, holding the roots to prevent pulling. Use a wide tooth comb or wet brush remove tangles if needed.
Use high quality hair care products but don’t overdo it, too much hair care product can cause build up and tangling over time. So you want to be careful with the amount of product you use. Never use any products containing oil, alcohol or ethanol directly on tab, as this can damage the hair extensions and also wear down on the adhesive. I recommend Morrocon hydrating cream foe everyday use. This product retails for about $38. When working out with hair extensions, be sure to remove excess sweat . I highly reccommend the nike dri fit workout cap. retails for $22.
When using hot tools be sure to use a heat protectant spray. The more you use heat on your hair, the shorter the life-span of the hair extensions.Do not use a flat iron directly on the tape tabs. This will weaken the bond and they will slip out.
When using conditioner, condition from mid-shaft to ends only. Do not apply conditioner to your scalp when wearing tape in hair extensions.When using serums or oils avoid contact with the tape, use on mid length to ends only.
Every 6-10 weeks, your hair extensions will need to be reapplied to move the bonds closer to the scalp and to keep your hair healthy.Tape in extensions are not recommended for those who have lost a significant amount of hair loss due to any illnesses or for those that have extreme hair thinning. Consult with your stylist about another option. Hope this helps!
