Installation

Before Installation: Make sure client's hair is dry and clean and free from any products or oils. Clarify hair if necessary.

1. Part the client's hair in a t-shape with the Quick Pick Hair Parter.
2. Start installing the Tape-In-Wefts at the nape of the neck. Clip the top layers of hair out of the way with Duck Bill Clips.

3. Remove the adhesive backing from one Tape-In Extension weft. Place the weft underneath a ¼ inch thick section of hair. Gently rub the hair onto the adhesive to secure hair.

4. Remove the adhesive backing for the corresponding Tape-In Extension weft. Place it directly on top of the bottom extension. This will sandwich the natural hair between the wefts.
5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 as you move up the back of the head. Work on a layer at a time, moving up the head. Do not install above the horseshoe section of the head.

6. Work on the sides of the head next. Do a thick hair application on the sides of the head. Remember to leave a perimeter of hair free near the hairline to hide the connection points.

Removal

1. Start at the nape of the neck, and section out the bottom row of Tape-Ins.

2. Apply the Tape-In Bond Remover to the adhesive bonds and wait for a few seconds.
3. Gently pull the adhesive strips apart and slide them out of the hair.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 working up the back of the head and on the sides, until every weft is removed.

Maintenance

Hair extensions need to be touched up every 3 to 6 weeks.

Tape-Ins may be reused 1 to 2 times. To reuse, use the Tape-In Bond Remover to clean off adhesive residue. Clarify the extension and the clien'ts hair, then apply Replacement Tape on the wefts and apply as normal. Organize each extension weft upon removal so that you can reattach each weft in the same position as before. This will ensure that you will not have to reblend the extensions.

Organize each extension strand upon removal so that you can reattach each strand in the same position as before.

Brush with the Hair Extension Brush and avoid hair care products with sulfates.
