Steps to wash tape in hair extensions

The first important step in washing tape in hair extensions is removing tangles and knots.

To avoid this mess, a comb can be used to gently separate the hair starting from the bottom and gradually moving to the top of the extension.
Make sure that you shampoo correctly
Apply a quality shampoo and you need to rub the shampoo at various points of your hair. Massage your hair gently or bunch your hair together if your tape hair is curly.

Wash the shampoo completely out of your hair with water. Apply a suitable conditioner to your hair. Same as when shampooing, you rub the conditioner in several places all over your hair and gently massage.
Wash off conditioner
Comb the conditioner throughout your whole hair by using the wide-toothed comb and stay at least 3 minutes before you go to wash it. Wash off all conditioner in your hair with clean water.
Dry Your Hair
Pat your dry hair with a soft towel and if possible, let your air-dry hair. If you must blow dry it, use a dryer with a diffuser attachment, and avoid holding the dryer directly on top of the hair. Dry the extensions part of the hair first and then dry the rest of your hair from the ends up.
