GUIDE TO TAPE-IN EXTENSION CARE

AFTER APPLICATION

  • Wait 24-48 hours before washing or chemically processing your hair.

EVERY DAY

  • 2-3 times per day gently brush hair from ends to roots using Hotheads Boar Bristle Brush.

WASHING & STYLING

  • Always brush hair prior to washing to detangle.
  • Use Hotheads Clean Shampoo and Smooth Conditioner which are specially formulated for our extensions.
  • Using color depositing products such as purple shampoo voids the warranty and should be done with care to avoid tape tabs.
  • Using Hotheads® Hydrate Conditioning Masque 1-2 times per week will moisturize extensions & help maintain longevity.
  • Avoid styling products that contain oil, alcohol, or ethanol, especially near tape tabs.
  • Heat should not exceed 350°F for human hair extensions and 250°F for Fantasy & Pastels. Avoid heat around tape tabs.
  • When using heat tools to style your hair, make sure to protect your extensions with a thermal styling product from the mid-shaft to the ends.

SLEEPING

  • Never go to sleep with wet or loose hair. Before bed, brush hair to detangle and gently tie into a loose ponytail or braid.

SWIMMING & VACATION TIPS

  • Rinse hair immediately after swimming or exercising.
  • Spray tans, sunscreens, hard/ well water, and bronzing products may contain minerals that can cause discoloration. In a Spray bottle, mix water with Hydrate Conditioning Masque and use as a leave in conditioner if you will be swimming or around products containing minerals. This will provide a protective barrier on the hair.
  • If discoloration has occurred, ask your stylist about our Recover Demineralizing Treatment.
