Tips On Looking After Tape Hair Extensions at Home

Hair Extensions at Top Hampshire SalonIf your tape hair extensions are becoming loose, or you feel they are becoming unmanageable, there are a few simple home remedies that can help gently and efficiently remove and loosen the tape attachments. As the hair extension experts in Lee-On-The-Solent, we highly recommend using rubbing alcohol to remove tape hair extensions as it quickly breaks down the glue.

Start by sectioning the hair as it allows easy access to the tape extensions for efficient removal. Then, gently tease the tapes apart at one end until you have a small opening. Using a spray bottle or a cotton pad, apply the rubbing alcohol to this opening. Leave this to set for 5-10 seconds, and when the glue has softened start carefully teasing the tape hair extensions apart.

Use a clean pad and a fine-tooth comb to remove any tape residue in the hair. Finally, you will have removed your tape hair extensions from the comfort of your own home, with the help of Nikki Froud Hair Salon techniques!

Micro Weft Hair Extensions At-Home Care

Do not attempt to remove micro weft hair extensions at home as you could seriously damage your hair and other complications may occur. Instead, you should focus on looking after your micro weft hair extensions at home until you can come into our Lee-On-The-Solent salon.

Our hair extension specialists recommend holding the micro weft hair attachments firmly to the scalp and use a hairbrush to brush them completely through. Then, apply a serum to the mid-lengths down to the ends of your hair. Depending on the length of regrowth, wear your weft hair extensions in loose plaits, worn at either side of the head to avoid any stress points. It is highly important that you brush your hair and repeat these steps before bed and first thing in the morning for the best results. Always remember to dry your hair 100% after washing as hair should be dry at all times when you have micro weft hair extensions!

Hair Extensions Consultations

Once our Lee-On-The-Solent salon re-opens be sure to book in for a hair extension consultation, especially if you have removed your hair extensions at home yourself! At the consultation, we can assess your hair for damage and discuss what you want to do next with your hair – whether it’s a new set of hair extensions, a haircut & style, or a hair colouring service.

If you’re new to hair extensions then it is also important you book in for a hair extension consultation so that we can discuss the process with you and how to look after your hair extensions. For those of you that were unable to remove your hair extensions at home because you had micro weft hair extensions, or just wanted to wait until the professionals at Nikki Froud Hairdressing Salon could remove your hair extensions, you must still book a hair extensions consultation so we can create a plan with you about how our hair extensions experts are going to remove your extensions.

If you have any concerns or queries about hair extensions, please email where we will be happy to help answer any questions that you may have.
