Tape-in adhesive strips are extremely sensitive to moisture. So, oiling your scalp is a big no!
It is recommended to wash your hair with tape-in extensions installed since it is a semi-permanent hairstyle. It is vital to keep the adhesive strip clear of moisture and dirt. Once your hair starts to become oily or dirty, wash it immediately to ensure the lasting of the extension.
Do not comb or brush the hair extensions while hair is wet.
Brush the hair with a wide tooth comb or detangling brush very gently. Be sure to brush properly, holding the roots to prevent pulling on the bonds.
When working out with tape-ins or swimming with hair extensions, be sure to remove excess sweat and chlorine after working out.
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. We use natural products such as BELLA BRAND The Serum on the ends of the extensions to keep the hair healthy and shiny over time.
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.
Since a person’s average natural hair loss is between 50-100 strands per day you will see a small amount of naturally released hairs in between the tape bonds at time of removal. This is normal and should not be interpreted as hair loss due to wearing hair extensions.
