How to Care for Your Hair Extensions So They Look Better, Longer

Updated: Jun 22, 2022

Hair extensions look amazing, but they can also be extremely expensive. These pro tips will help you get the most out of your new set, no matter what type you have installed.

While there are many hair care tips that apply to all of types of hair extensions—such as: avoid sulfates, apply product from the mid-shaft down, don’t over-shower, etc.—there are also some that apply specifically to one method or another. Each method is distinct, and best practices for I-Tip may differ slightly from those of Fusion or Tape-In. So let’s take a look at the special considerations for Tape-In. The two main things you should know when caring for your Tape-Ins: Be extra careful with oils. Hair oils—such as argan oil, coconut oil, and essential oils—can be wonderful for hair and hair extensions alike. They coat strands in a nourishing, protective layer that hydrates the hair over an extended period of time. However, I recommend that women with hair extensions only apply hair oils from the mid-shaft to ends of their extensions in order to nourish the hair. All hair extension clients should exercise caution when using hair oils to ensure that the oil does not touch the bonds themselves (which can compromise hold and cause slippage), and Tape-In clients should take particular care because Tape-In bonds are designed to disintegrate when coated with oil.

To avoid premature slippage, I advise to always read product labels, limit your exposure to additional oil, apply oil sparingly, and avoid wearing n your hair up after oil has been applied. You should also avoid sleeping in oil-coated hair to prevent the unintentional spread of oil to the root area. When in doubt, Tape-In clients should opt for non-oily hydrating products.
