Choosing the best person to install tape in hair extensions
All of this sounds good, but there are a few things you need to keep in mind so that your experience with tape in hair extensions is wonderful.
Although tape in extensions are really easy to install, we strongly urge you to have them installed by a certified hair extensions specialist.
Sometimes we get really weird questions here at Canada Hair like “is it normal that my hair extensions are slipping?“.
No, it’s absolutely not normal that your tape in hair extensions are slipping.
Our tape in extensions are made of great quality so that they can last a long time and not slip.
When we ask further questions to understand better why this is happening, we regularly hear that the extensions were installed by a friend, a boyfriend, a mother, a sister, a hairdresser with no prior knowledge on installing tape extensions, etc. You get the idea: it wasn’t someone knowledgeable in installing tape in extensions.
In order for you to have a great experience, you need to have a certified hair extensions specialist to apply your tape in extensions.
If your hairdresser is not certified in hair extensions but has tons of good reviews regarding tape in extensions installation, then that’s fine too! To sum up, choose a professional with solid experience in installing tape in extensions.
How to apply tape in hair extensions
In order to apply tape in extensions in a way that will last a long time, here are a few things to keep in mind.
Clarify your hair with a clarifying shampoo before the installation. This will remove all excess oils from the hair.
Have your hairdresser select a very thin strand of hair. If too much hair is selected, the tape wefts will not stick well and might fall.
Make a sandwich with the tape wefts
Use a hot straightener to apply pressure to the tape wefts. This is really important – don’t skip this step!
Be sure to have the tape a little bit far away from the root: 1/4th of an inch away. This way, you will avoid irritation.
How to maintain your tape in hair extensions
During the installation, avoid any chemical products such as hair color or keratin treatment. After the installation of tape in extensions, wait 72 hours (3 days) before washing your hair. When washing your hair, always use sulfate-free shampoo and sulfate-free conditioner. Don’t apply any hairspray, oil treatments, or any other hair care products directly on the tapes. This will break the adhesive and will shorten the lifespan of your tape in extensions.
After you have your #tape in #extensions installed, wait 72 hours before washing your hair. Always use sulfate-free shampoo & sulfate-free conditioner. More importantly: NEVER apply any hair care products such as hair spray or oil treatments directly on the tapes.
