Tips on caring for your Hairdreams tape-in hair extensions at home
If you’re wearing Hairdreams Quikkies or SECRETS tapes, we have the know-how to help you maintain them at home! Read on to keep your dream hair in tip top shape.
Be gentle on your hair! That means, avoid excessive tension or pulling on your hair and tape-ins. No tight braids or tight ponytails that put stress on the tapes.
Tapes hair brushing technique: use one hand to firmly hold the attachments near the roots, while you use the other hand to brush through your strands.
Limit shampooing. Once or 2x a week is recommended. Keep hair tied in a bun or tucked in a shower cap when bathing. All Hairdreams shampoos are gentle on your tapes, thoroughly cleanse and help increase shine. When shampooing, try not to rub hair in a circular motion. Instead, press onto scalp and work the shampoo through with soft strokes to evenly distribute on the scalp. Rinse thoroughly to remove all product from hair and scalp. Dry tapes as soon as you finish shampooing. Tapes should not be left damp for a long period of time.
Your stylist will recommend the ideal Hairdreams shampoo for your hair type. The following Hairdreams formulas are available depending on your hair condition: Beauty Shampoo, Protein Shampoo or Volume Shampoo.
Condition, condition, condition for the best tape extensions results.
Hairdreams’ Regeneration Care is best to follow shampoo. This intensive, nourishing conditioner leaves hair supple and more manageable. Apply on strands focusing on ends of hair. Leave on hair for a few minutes before rinsing completely.
For added care at home, use a few drops of the Hairdreams HairFluid daily on dry hair concentrating on lengths and tips of hair. This helps maintain hair’s shine, moisture and suppleness.
Blow-drying tips: Try not to set the blow dryer temperature on the hottest level. Opt for medium to low heat for ideal tapes care.
To best maintain the condition of your tapes between salon visits, regularly tie hair gently together. Braid hair loosely or wear up in a bun while sleeping. All types of hair accessories can be used on your hair including hair bands, scarves, and hair clips. Be creative!
