Hair Extensions Care

How to Care for Hair Extensions

Caring for hair extensions is very important and will make all the difference when it comes to the life span of your hair extensions. If you care for the hair extensions they will last for a long time (up to a year or more). Hair extensions need extra love and care because they do not have the natural oils that our hair has. With our own hair, we have natural oils from the scalp that keep our hair healthy and prevent our hair from getting dry, but this is not the case with hair extensions. Once hair extensions are produced and not attached to the scalp the natural oils are no longer there. This means that taking care of your hair extensions is apart of your new daily routine if you want them to last.

Tape In Hair Extensions Facts

Tape extensions require maintenance and touch ups every 6-10 weeks depending on how you care for the hair extensions and how fast your hair grows and MUST be applied by a professional. The faster your hair grows the faster they will need to be replaced. The average wear for tape extensions is 10 weeks and the micro strands will last 4-6 weeks as a time. The Glam Seamless extensions are able to be reused up to three applications. Because of your unique sew lines and double drawn hair our hair has minimal shedding and most are able to reuse their hair extensions up to three times with proper care. Caring for the extensions is what will allow you to have a great experience and use the hair extensions for a long time.

Caring for Tape-In Hair Extensions

  1. After application do not wash your hair for 48 hours.
  2. Use only sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.
  3. Do not put oils, alcohol, or conditioner directly on tape bonds as this may cause the bonds to slip.
  4. Never sleep on wet hair, be sure hair is dry and then gently braid or tie up the hair to prevent tangling.
  5. Brush hair 2-3 times a day to keep hair from tangling
  6. Use a hair mask once a week to restore shine and texture.
  7. We recommend using the Hair Therapy Leave In Conditioner before going in the sun, pool, or ocean to protect the hair extensions from drying.

Styling Tips

Tape extensions can be worn up or down and styled any way. When styling be sure to follow these tips.

  1. Use a detangling brush to get out any tangles.
  2. Use the Thermal Protecting Spray before using any heat tools including the blow dryer.
  3. Do not isolate heat on the tape tabs, they are not to be heated with flat irons or the blow dryer.
  4. Use the boar bristle brush to hide tape tabs when wearing high ponytails.

Caring for Clip-In Hair Extensions

  • Always store clip in hair extensions when they are not being worn.
  • Wash clip in hair extensions after every 8-10 uses.
  • Use only sulfate free shampoo and conditioners.
  • When styling always use a Thermal Spray to prevent hair from drying out, which leads to tangling.
  • Do not swim or workout with clip in hair extensions.
