Buying tape in extensions is an excellent investment. To make sure that your investment looks and feels soft and healthy longer, it is important for tape extensions users to learn a few things about caring for tape in hair extensions. With proper knowledge about tape in extensions, it becomes rather easy to follow maintenance tips.
Why should you take care of those Remy hair extensions?
You would never have purchased those tape in extensions if you knew they were only going to last from a few weeks to a few months. Quality tape in hair extensions does not mean that they are indestructible when in fact they are more fragile than cheaper hair extensions or wigs. It is therefore crucial for you to learn how to keep your tape in extensions in top shape.
What is the secret to shiny, long-lasting tape in hair extensions?
The key to making your favorite tape in hair extensions last longer is using oils. Natural hair maintains its beauty and shine as our scalp produces sebum, a fluid secreted by the sebaceous gland. Its main function is to nourish hair follicles. Sebum primarily coats hair strands so it can lock in moisture and nutrients within hair strands.
Even the most expensive Remy tape in hair extensions will lose its lustre and shine without proper care and maintenance. Here are things that you can do to make your tape ins smooth, beautiful, and soft.
There are many ways by which you can coat your tape ins with products that will prolong use.
- You should not wash your hair extensions frequently. Getting them wet regularly will leave them dry and brittle.
- Use hair care products which are formulated for washing hair extensions. Ideally, use oils that function similar to the natural oils that we have in our actual hair. Argan oil is an all-natural product that mimics sebum, thus is ideal for hair extensions care.
- Do not blow dry tape-ins but rather air dry them. The heat from blow dryers will cause the hair strands to dry easily and the adhesive on tape-ins wear out faster, too.
