HAIR EXTENSION TAPE INS: HOW LONG WILL IT LAST FOR? 150 150 Crystal

HAIR EXTENSION TAPE INS: HOW LONG WILL IT LAST FOR?

Hair extensions with tape are all the rage these days as their popularity grows among people. However, various client’s question about the longevity of tape in the hair extensions. The hair extension itself should last for about four to six months, normally.

First, the life of your hair extension completely depends upon your lifestyle and how you maintain them. The client needs to visit the hair salon that installed their hair extension every six to eight weeks in order to re-tape them. This service is done for about three times before installing a new set. The tape of Hottie Hair Extensions is U.S. made, and it guarantees the durability and lifespan of the hair extension tape. Several companies that produce hair extensions use other kinds of tape that is not supposed to be applied on hair; hence it won’t last for a long time.

Since this tape is produced locally, it guarantees reliability and greater quality control. The Tape-in Hair Extensions by Hottie Hair do not need additional heat, waxes, or glues. Furthermore, make sure to visit the hair salons that provide the service of installing hair extensions. A hair salon that is certified will definitely make sure to use great quality of hair extensions and related products.

SLIPPAGE

We use our prep-shampoo for the hair that wasn’t ready properly for hair extension service. Unwashed hair tends to have built up oils and dirt that result in the slippage of the extensions. This also applies to clients who have oily hair, naturally. Hence, they are advised to thoroughly wash their hair and roots with our given shampoo. It is crucial that the client waits for 48 hours after getting hair extension when it comes to washing their hair for the first time. This will ensure that the tape has been properly fixed inside the hair.

At times, certain issues can arise when it comes to the installation of the hair extensions. For example, the amount of hair between two pieces of the tape could be a lot. Hence, this results in the tape not being able to hold that much hair. Moreover, even touching the tape a lot prior to installation or perhaps using hairspray that has alcohol in it can also result in premature slippage.

The hair stylist should be properly educated when it comes to the process of application of the hair extensions and also the aftercare. It is vital that the hair stylist informs their client about the importance of noting down the products they are using and the maintenance of their hair extensions.

Let your clients know that their hair needs to be conditioned and taken care of just like their real hair. you should also warn them to take care when yanking and blowing out because it really isn’t good for their new hair extensions, and can result in breakage on their natural hair.

HAIR EXTENSIONS DESIGNED FOR HAIR THAT’S THIN 150 150 Crystal

HAIR EXTENSIONS DESIGNED FOR HAIR THAT’S THIN

Regarding hair extensions for people whose hair is thin, discover if taped in type extensions or the micro bead kind perform the best. While determining which type of extensions to use, it’s vital to know the amount of stress, tension and weight gets put onto the real part of the hair. If someone has very thin or fine hair, it’s necessary to choose extensions that have the lowest density.

You may contemplate that the best way to apply them would be to do it one strand at a time. However, you should additionally think about any possible way the hair could get damaged via gluing single hair pieces to a head of hair that’s very thin by nature. Prior to attaching the extensions to someone’s hair that’s thin, you need to know if the taped in variety or the micro bead kind are the best.

MICRO BEADED TYPE of HAIR EXTENSIONS (CYLINDER) VERSUS TAPED-IN TYPE

Micro Beaded Hair Extensions (Cylinder): The method hat micro beaded hair extensions perform is via each of the extensions being put on one strand at a time via a distinct instrument that attaches a single extension to the real hair via a bead made of silicone or copper. Regrettably, if someone’s hair is very thin, connections similar to screws will weigh the hair down after being put on. That will then pull and yank the hair downward, which could damage it over time.

Taped-In Hair Extensions: The method requires sticking the extensions to hair via tape, with no need for glue. The tape is very lightweight. It is attached to a large section of the hair, and that causes less tension on the real hair, so it doesn’t hurt it. And best of all, you use a single sided type of application method. That involves using a single tape weft hair extension and not two whole ones, and the other side of the section of hair is sealed off using only one section of tape, thereby the weight put onto the hair is only half as much.

To sum up, taped-In hair extensions are the best ones for people with thin hair as they deliver long lasting applications, as they don’t hurt thin hair and there’s no need for using either chemicals or tools to apply them.

However, in case your client has thicker hair, it is recommended that you go for the more conventional tape-in extension technique. Thicker hair also has a higher density. This density can be matched while adding extensions. However, when you add crazy colors or highlights, single sided hair tape may be utilized for creating a softer and smoother blend.

ARE YOUR PRECIOUS HAIR EXTENSIONS AT RISK OF SLIPPING? 150 150 Crystal

ARE YOUR PRECIOUS HAIR EXTENSIONS AT RISK OF SLIPPING?

There’s nothing in the world that can set you on the backfoot like a hair extension that’s falling out. While it’s not something that happens regularly, here are some reasons why they happen and how they can be prevented.

PLEASE HELP ME! MY HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE!

Keratin Fusion & Tape-Ins – Always make sure you wash your hair one to three times using the Prep Shampoo. Proceed to dry your hair thoroughly before you start applying the extensions. As you apply them, ensure that you’ve got an appropriate quantity of hair in the tapes. Having way too much may cause slippage whereas having too little hair may cause breakage issues. We suggest that you use our method and place the top hair tab first. This way, you will always have a perfect head of hair.

Ensure your customer waits for at least 2 days after application of the hair extensions before they wash their hair. Don’t condition near the bonds since they are prone to slippage at times. Don’t ever utilize products that contain alcohol (such as hairspray) near the roots either. And finally, always ensure you brush these extensions starting right from its ends.

I-Tip – When you use little hair & thread the I-Tip inside a shrink tube, you’ll cause unnecessary strain, which will cause the hair strands to break due to the excess weight. But if you use excess hair, the scalp region might experience discomfort.

Clip-In – Clips usually fail because they weren’t properly attached to begin with. When you attach excess hair, this causes the hair clip to get overfilled and pop open. However, if you have thin hair, it’s best to tease your hair near its roots before you apply the hair clip-ins.

HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS

At the advent of any physical activity (pool, beach, gym, biking, etc.), secure your hair in a braid or under a cap. Be sure to wash hair very well soon after to remove any chemicals, sweat, or residue. It is the best practice to never leave your hair wet after a workout for any prolonged length of time. Moisture left over time sips into the extension, which isn’t too good.

Brushing your hair extensions from bottom to mid-shaft and untangling it with our Boar bristle brush guarantees longevity for the hair. The heat-resistant quality of the hair makes it possible for you to brush, detangle, style, or even blow-dry the hair. Secure your hair with one hand when broaching to avoid excessive pressure on the roots.

Brush well before wetting your hair (always begin from the ends). After washing the hair, with your fingers, gently apply the shampoo to the root area, lightly massage between the tape in/bonds, parting them well to do away with any residue and oils. Rinse out. Do not scrub your hair vigorously as tangling may occur. This shampooing should be done using Milbon Sulfate and Protein-Free Shampoo and Conditioner. Shampoo at most, three times a week. After shampooing, you can then apply the conditioner from mid-length to ends. Never condition at the root area. For deeper conditioning, condition the hair for a little longer or use a hydrating treatment once a week. Do not go to bed with wet hair, as it results in tangling and knotting. It is also advisable to braid your hair loosely before going to sleep.

The hair should be allowed to hair dry for about 10 minutes after getting out of the shower. Afterward, apply a heat protecting spray before blow-drying. If possible, you can air-dry altogether (it is better to use less heat as possible on your extensions). For better results, run some serum throughout your hair and avoid the bonds while at it. To avoid tangles and matting, Always put your hair in a ponytail or loose braid before going to sleep.

WHAT NOT TO DO

  • Going to bed with damp or wet hair. Moisture will result in slippage over time.
  • Applying heat directly to the adhesive or bonds.
  • Use only professional products that are sulfates and sodium-free. Don’t overdo it with products.
  • Washing your hair more than three times a week.
  • Putting the product directly on the application area (especially hairspray).
  • Using products with alcohol.
  • Towel drying your hair.
  • Shampooing your hair less than 48 hours after fixing of the extension.
