How to care for tape in hair extensions
A very common practise nowadays is to have tape in hair extensions, but lots of people don't actually know how to care for them, and some won't even try it because they are scared of the maintenance.
I was happily contacted by Hair Plus Base to write a post on tape in hair extensions, and that just fit so beautifully with my plans.
So I hope this post can help you care for them better, and if you are afraid maybe not be afraid anymore. It is quite simple, you just need to know what it is about.
If you don't have tape in hair extensions yet, you can have a look on the Hair Plus Base Tape In Extensions, they have beautiful extensions at an affordable price.
Now that you have the extensions sorted, let's see this great and simple infographic I found to understand some essential do's and don'ts:

- Before applying your extensions, make sure to wash thoroughly your hair, any oil will prevent the adhesive from working properly, and so it will slide off.
- Try to wash your hair the least possible, ideally only twice a week, and in between use a dry shampoo to absorb any extra oils you may have.
- Try to use sulfate free products, that will increase the longevity of your tape in extensions and it will help keep your hair healthy.
- When you wash your hair focus on the scalp and the lengths of the hair, try not to rub the wefts much, this will help keep them in place for longer.

- If you apply conditioner, do it from the mid strand to the ends of your hair, this way it will not weigh your hair down and damage the wefts.
- Avoid squeezing your hair or putting it in a towel wrap, slowly pat dry avoiding tangles this way. And blow dry your hair from bottom to the top. Do not brush your hair while it is wet.
- When applying your extensions make sure to have the panels lined up perfectly, this way they won't slide around.
- If you have thin hair, try to have enough hair between the panels for a firm grip, and if you have thick hair try to avoid packing too much hair so the panels can adhere to each other.
I hope these tips have helped you, if you know of anymore I didn't mention please write them down below.
