How to care for your tape hair extensions
Thanks to the premium level quality of our extensions, you will be able to heat style, sleep in, swim with, and colour treat your hair while wearing tape extensions.
Washing your hair
To keep your hair looking and feeling its best, you will need to wash your hair with quality products, avoiding products that contain protein, keratin or sulphates. If you’re not sure where to find ideal products, check out our range of hair care here. We also recommend using a deep treatment mask once a week to keep the hair nourished, healthy and soft. After washing your hair, we recommend blow drying as opposed to letting it dry naturally, to keep your hair looking its silkiest and feeling its softest.
Wearing your hair in a loose plait while you sleep can prevent tangling. Speaking of tangling, you should make sure to regularly brush your hair with a non-damaging hairbrush that won’t pull on your hair.
Styling your hair
When heat styling your hair, make sure to use a heat protectant spray first. If you regularly heat style your hair, you should definitely be applying that weekly treatment mask! To avoid causing any damage to your hair, avoid wearing styles that are too tight and will pull on your hair too much.
Swimming with extensions
While you can swim with tape in hair extensions, we recommend to avoid letting your hair into ocean or chlorinated water too frequently, as it can shorten the lifespan of the extensions. Before you swim, wet your hair so that it will absorb less of the water. Put your hair in a loose plait before swimming and rinse your hair with cold water when you’re finished. Be sure to wash your hair with a quality shampoo and conditioner that same night.
Maintenance salon appointments
Last, but not least, caring for tape hair extensions will involve maintenance visits to the salon to have them moved up in place. Depending on how fast your hair grows, you will need to have your extensions moved up every four to six weeks. Thankfully, at EH Hair, we make this process as fast, fuss-free and enjoyable as we can!
