Do and don’ts for tape in extensions?
Starting with dos:
– Do use good hair products: After your client has got her tape-in hair extensions, it is essential to take the correct steps or procedures to maintain them. Make sure your client listens to the hairstylist as to what hair products to use for the best care of her hair extension.
– Make sure your client has a hair expert or a stylist work on her hair extensions: this cannot be overlooked. Don’t take any hairdresser or stylist for granted. She does need a licensed professional to work on her hair extensions. Never be stingy when it comes to hair extensions. They require a lot of skills and expertise from a stylist who works on them.
– Make sure to get your client loosely braid her hair before bed: Try not to go to bed with the hair dripping and tangled. That will create knots during sleep. It’s worth keeping a good habit of drying, combing, and untangling the hair before bed. Using a silk pillowcase will prevent the hair from getting knots.
– Do get a dry shampoo for hair wash.
– Do press the panels tightly together daily: this ensures that the tape in extensions is tightly attached to the hair, so its weight doesn’t pull on the natural hair.
Now comes the don’ts:
– Make sure your client doesn’t dye her own hair: Yes, the hair on the hair extensions is human hair indeed. But they are different from natural human hair growing on our scalp. When our natural hair is dyed, the dye is expected to have a chemical reaction with the pigments in our natural hair to alter our natural hair color. But most hair extensions are already dyed before they are purchased. The standard way of dyeing the hair may not achieve the color the wearer wants. Let a certified stylist dye it for your client. At least they know what products are the most suitable and cause minor damage to your client’s natural hair.
– Don’t let your client shower or have her hair sweat excessively within 48 hours of applying for the hair extension. The hair extension takes around 48 hours to adhere to her natural hair.
– Make sure your client doesn’t let her hair extensions slip or fall out. This, however, depends on the brand. In general, the first application will last 6-8 weeks before the next. If her hair extensions are slipping, make sure she lets her stylist know, ensuring she’s been wearing them correctly.
– Don’t let the panels show. If the hair extension has been installed correctly, your client should then be able to rock the bunch of hair (be it a ponytail or braid freely). The panels showing may imply that the extension hasn’t been installed in a solid state.
– Don’t let your client play with her hair extensions: Our hands are not plastic. They sweat and produce oil that can potentially build up around the hair, causing them to slit sooner than it should. Also, as our fingers fiddle with the hair extension, our hands will pull on the hair; this could also cut its life short.
Can you wear a ponytail with tape in extensions?
Yes, tape in hair extensions can go well with ponytail hairstyles. To ensure the tape is invisible, we suggest you opt for a low to medium ponytail so the tape tab will lay flat against your head and be undetectable.
