When you are taking a shower with tape in hair extensions it requires extra attention. When you first have your extensions installed you should not wash your hair for at least two days. This will allow the tapes to make the necessary bonding to your own hair. It also prevents slippage from occurring.
How do I shower with Tape In Hair Extensions?
Here is a basic guide for washing your hair with tape in extensions:
1. Before Showering Brush Your Hair
Use a Wet Dry Detangling brush anywhere from two to three times per day. Always start from the bottom and work your way to the top. To prevent tangling you should always brush your hair before you shower.
2. How You Shampoo Your Hair Is Important
A shampoo that has been specifically formulated for hair extensions should be used. This will keep the hair looking as healthy as possible. If you are unsure if your shampoo is safe to put on your tapes start below the tabs and wash down. If it is made for extensions you can start at the root and work your way down. When washing there is no need to do a circle motion or scrubbing as this can cause your hair to tangle.
3. When Conditioning Start From The Middle and Work Down
Avoid using a "hydrating" conditioner on or around the tabs of your tape in hair extensions. Conditioning only really need to be from the middle of your hair down. A spray in leave in conditioner is perfect for any type of hair extensions.
4. Use a Towel To Dry The Hair and Carefully Brush It
After you are finished showering, brush your hair carefully. After that dry your hair with a towel. Work your way from the top moving down slow to the ends. Rubbing the hair in the towel is not advised as this can cause the hair to tangle and possibly damage the extension hair.
5. Using a Blow Dryer
When ever using heat on your hair it is good to use a heat protecting spray. Heat causes the cuticles to open up so a low heat is recommend. Open cuticles tend to cause frizz and drys out the hair. Air dry your hair when possible.
