Tape In Extensions
Tape In Hair Extensions FAQs
Bombay Hair tape in extensions, when professionally installed, will last you 2 to 3 months. The hair itself can last up to 1 year with extra care, professional removal, and re-installation. The best way to make our natural hair extensions last longer is to not dye, purple shampoo, or alter them in any way (just like your own hair).
Care is key when it comes to the life of your tape in hair extensions! Since each of our tape ins is 100% human hair the best advice is to treat it like your own hair. Always gently brush your hair during wear and before you store them away. Always store your hair properly in the zip bag provided, or on a hang-your-hair hanger inside of a carrier. The more products and heat you apply to your hair, the more love it will need. Shop Our Extension Accessories and Hair Care Products Here
Overall, the better you take care of your tape in hair extensions the longer they will last. An important factor in expanding the lifespan of your extensions is by deep conditioning. It is great to deep condition them once a week (if you wear them often). Also, overnight deep conditioning with a small amount of Argan or Almond Oil is an extra step you can take in caring for your extensions. We recommend laying your extensions flat to dry on satin or silk.
Avoid dying, toning, or altering the hair in any way.
No. Tape in extensions use an adhesive to bond with your natural hair that can easily be removed by a salon professional. We also sell a great gentle bond remover.
We do recommend that you always treat your Bombay Hair like your own natural, human hair. Heat protectant sprays and hair oils are a great way to maintain the integrity of your hair when using our hair tools.
You can use tape in hair extensions as many times as you want! Wearing extensions will not cause any damage to your hair.
Yes, while you can wash your hair with your tape ins, washing your hair daily is not recommended. Specifically, we recommend washing your extensions up to 3 times per week, as any amount of washing beyond that will cause the tape’s adhesive to weaken. Important, do you not apply conditioner to the root of the tape bonds, as that can cause them to loosen.
Yes, but you should wait 48 hours from when your tape in hair extensions are applied before showering. If you do need to shower with your tape in hair extensions, we recommend wearing a shower cap. This will ensure the adhesive has enough time to dry. We also recommend using a deep conditioning treatment once per week on your tape in hair extensions.
You can either let your hair air dry completely with tape in hair extensions or let your hair air dry for a few minutes and then gently use a blow dryer. Important, do not apply heat directly onto the bond.
