Tape In Extensions are legit!
Instant gratification Ladies! Each application last for 4-6 weeks and hair wefts can be reused 3 or more times. This tape-in technique, is unlike any other method of extensions out there, adding length and thickness to almost any hair type without the damage!
There are 4 natural colors, ranging from Dark Brown to Blonde for easy matching or contrasting. Fashion colors are also available at an additional charge. The installation is astonishingly quick, painless and the results are seamless, and so natural looking. The medical grade adhesive is designed for hair, so with proper care, tape won’t weaken until you're ready to have them removed by your Stylist.
This method does not allow for individual strand breakage as many other methods of extensions typically do. No messy glue or clumsy, uncomfortable clips necessary.
At home care is easy too. A sulfate-free shampoo is necessary to gently cleanse the scalp without scrubbing, followed up by a sulfate-free conditioner on the mid-shaft to ends. Wash your hair in one direction. Avoid washing your hair upside down. Scrunching up your hair or rubbing it harshly will cause tangling!
After rinsing, gently wring out the excess water. For extra smooth result, add a leave-in conditioner or serum mid-shaft to tips. Gently comb through any tangles or use a loop brush specifically for extensions, If possible let them air dry, or if you need a blow dry, apply a heat protectant first and be careful not to heat up the bond/tape strip as it can weaken it and cause sliding.
I recommend sleeping with your hair in one or two braids to prevent excessive tangling.

What is OLAPLEX?
Olaplex is an incredible product that is added to color/bleach formula and allows you to process your hair to its maximum potential without jeopardizing the integrity of your hair. This single ingredient is free of silicone and oils, and essential rebuilds broken bonds in the hair during and after chemical services making them stronger than they were before. Olaplex works on virtually every hair types. Asian, Caucasian, African American, previously chemically processed and virgin, doesn’t matter…it works!
The Hair Perfector No.3 Take Home treatment has amazing additional benefits and is recommended for between salon visits to maximize the bond rebuilding process.
MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE with OLAPLEX
I’ve been coloring my hair dark (some would describe as “black”) for 10+ years. Over the years I have tried to remove some of that dark pigment out, but the lightening process left my hair a hideous orangey/red color. The only way to decolorize my hair completely would have meant over-processing the heck out of it, risking a major breakage, a.k.a. “chemical haircut”. Boooooo…thumbs down.
With pastels and silvers being all the rage, I thought why not give Olaplex a whirl and pre-lighten my hair for a much lighter fashion color…pastel purple. To achieve these pastel colors the hair must be decolorized to a yellow- or platinum- blonde. I posted a kind of play by play of my process. Obviously, this was not all done in one sitting, but after a few processes, mission accomplished! I am positive that the ONLY way I could have pulled this of is with Olaplex. I’ve been using the Hair Perfector No.3 once a week and the condition of my hair is unexpectedly pretty good considering everything it’s been through. Highly recommended!!
This service is available to all my color clients starting at $15, plus the at home treatment is $18. Small price to pay for healthy, strong beautiful hair in my humble opinion:)
