Tape Hair Extensions method, also called seamless or skin weft extensions, is the newest most innovative extension method on the market. It is also extremely popular. Tape hair extensions are attached quickly and easily. This is done by pressing two adhesive, invisible gel strips towards each other with a part of your own hair in between the strips. Then applying low heat to ensure adherence. The extensions are completely invisible since they are lying flat down towards your head. Tape hair extensions normally lasts 6 to 8 weeks. They are also very easy to remove and can be reused when adhesive is reapplied to strips.
All of our hair is 100% Remy, meaning that all of the cuticles are unidirectional. This is a critical feature of quality hair extensions because it ensures no matting or tangling. All of our tape extensions start off as off as 100% virgin hair and can be sold as such or colored based on your selection for customer convenience. All of our hair has a natural soft texture because each piece or sandwich( 2 pieces) is collected from only healthy donors. Because all of our hair is exclusive virgin quality it can be dyed and worn curly or straight.
Do not use products with high silicone content as this may affect the attachments. Do not use products that contain sulphur, such as dandruff shampoo.
Washing hair: Cleanse from top of the head downwards. Gently massage shampoo into the scalp and hair being sure not to pull on the extensions. Apply conditioner only to the length of your hair, avoid the root area. Apply only to the mid-lengths and ends, comb through with your fingers until hair feels tangle free. Leave your conditioner on for 5 minutes or longer if instructions on conditioner recommends longer. We recommend using a conditioning treatment on the mid-lengths to ends of your hair extensions once a week. Do not comb or brush hair while it is wet.
Drying your Tape Hair Extensions : Do not dry with a scrubbing motion, but instead wrap hair with a towel to remove moisture. Always dry the base area (scalp area where your hair extensions are attached) thoroughly. When using a blow dryer use low to medium heat, aim the heat/air down the hair shaft starting at the root area moving towards the ends, gently moving the hair with your fingers until at least 50% dry then brushing may be introduced for styling.
Sleeping with Tape Hair Extensions: Loosely plait you hair at night. Make sure the hair is completely dry before you go to sleep. If you toss and turn a lot in your sleep we would recommend getting a silk or satin pillowslip.
Physical Activities: Tie your hair up before swimming or engaging in sports. Chlorine or sea water will affect the hair as it does your natural hair so it is important to shampoo and condition as directed immediately after such activities. Products containing Sulphurous substances (thermal baths) will affect the tape attachment and therefore must be avoided. Do not use products containing any alcohol. When using waxes, gels, serums, or oils avoid contact with the tape, use on mid lengths to ends.
Coloring Tape Hair Extensions: Should only be done by qualified hair dresser who is trained in dealing with human hair extensions. A test strand MUST be completed first. We recommend only coloring your hair extensions up to 2 shades darker. Keep the color away from the tape attachment. DO NOT bleach your hair extensions!
Brushing your Tape Hair Extensions: Brush with a loop or soft bristle hair extension brush 2-3 times a day, starting at the ends of your hair to remove any tangles working your way up. We recommend that you use a loop hair extension brush, this is a brush designed for use on hair extensions with special loops to stop any damage or breakage to your hair and your hair extensions. Use a wide tooth comb to remove tangles from the ends. Do not brush or comb in the area between the scalp and the tap hair extensions. Do not backcomb roots. Do not use uncovered plastic bands.
Curling Irons/Hot Rollers/Straighteners: Curling irons and hot rollers may be used, but they must be kept at an adequate distance from the tape attachment. Although the hair extensions are real human hair they are not root-based and therefore do not receive the same nutrients and oils as your natural hair. Please be aware, the more you use heat on your hair the shorter the life-span of the hair extensions. If you use heat on your hair, use a low setting and apply a Thermal Protector and Shine Serum on it.
Maintenance: is recommended that approximately every 6-10 weeks you hair extensions will be due for maintenance, to move them back closer to your scalp and to keep your extensions looking fresh.
