Whether you're new to tape in hair extensions, or have had tape in hair extensions
in the past, it's always a good idea to refresh your memory on how to take care
of your hair. The better care your hair extensions receive, the longer they
will last you.
With maximum care, your hair extensions can last up to a year
or even longer. The more you wash and style your extensions, the shorter their
lifespan will be, so keep washing and using additional products to a minimum.
The important thing to remember is that your hair extensions don’t have a
natural hydration source like your own hair does, so keeping them moisturized
and reducing dryness is crucial.
Blowbunny's tape in hair extensions are made of
100% remy human hair.
hair extensions, can and may tangle - it's normal and to be expected. The
reason being is because the friction of your natural hair rubbing against your
hair extensions causes tangles.
The best way to keep your extensions tangle-free is to keep
on top of regular brushing. Always have a paddle brush on hand so that even
when you’re out and about you can still give your hair a quick run through. Not sure which brush to use? We love Wet brushes!
On average, your natural hair will shed approximately 100
strands a day, and because our hair extensions are made of natural hair, you
can expect some shedding throughout its lifespan. Every time you brush or style
your extensions there will be light shedding, so don’t be surprised or worried
when this happens. This, however, does not mean to reduce the amount you brush
your extensions. You can minimize shedding in other ways.
Washing your extensions too much will dry out the hair, which
may cause them to shed. The more products you use, the more you will need to
wash your extensions, so the best way to reduce shedding is to use a minimal
amount of products when styling your hair.
Coloring Your Extensions
hair extensions can be dyed
a darker color. If you do decide that you want to color your
extensions, it’s always best to head straight to the salon and find a
professional who is experienced in working with extensions as you’re unlikely
to run into problems this way.
We do not, however,
recommend bleaching your hair extensions as they have likely already been dyed
at the manufacturing level. Forcing bleach on hair that has already been dyed
can be difficult, and finding alternatives like increasing the concentration of
bleach or leaving it in longer to soak will only lead to damaged hair. Also,
keep in mind that the color may not come out as intended because of the
existing hair dye.
