I highly encourage that you invest fully in your hair and purchase each tool I will mention. Depending on your hair, some of these product recommendations may change, but these are my “go-to” recommendations for how to maintain tape extensions!

 

 

 

 

 

 

PRODUCT MUST HAVES

#1 Framar Wet Brush



Framar Wet Brushes are an extension wearer’s best friend. Unlike any other brush, their bristles are much more flexible and are designed to not pull as hard on your hair which prevents breakage.

When using your Framar wet brush, don’t be afraid to brush thoroughly. I’m talking right over the panels of your extensions, because the bristles are so flexible there’s no way they can tear your hair out.

 

Brushing Your Hair Extensions : Tips and Tricks:

  • Start by brushing your ends first and working your way to the top. This will ensure that no breakage occurs, and you are not rough detangling your hair.
  • When using your wet brush, don’t be afraid to brush thoroughly. I’m talking right over the panels of your extensions, because the bristles are so flexible there’s no way they can pull your hair extensions out.
  • One of the most common mistakes we see is someone not brushing enough, and we have to detangle 6-8 weeks of not brushing at your maintenance appointments. Trust me: don’t be afraid to brush!

#2. Arrojo Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner

Let’s talk shampoo and conditioner. At Bigger Better Hair we have a luxury product line called Arrojo. Any of their shampoo and conditioners are extension friendly, and they are hands down the best shampoo and conditioner for extensions.



The entire line is free of sulfates, parabens, and harsh chemicals. They also contain skincare grade ingredients and are clinically proven to improve your hair quality.


Washing Your Hair Extensions : Tips & Tricks

  • Your tape extensions should not slip out, as they are held together with medical grade tape. If they start to slip, there’s a reason. One of the biggest causes of slippage is oil or conditioner has touched the tape. To prevent this, don’t wait too long in between shampoos, as this creates build up of your natural oils which in turns causes slipping.
  • Also, make sure you don’t condition your hair near the wefts, or apply any sort of shine, conditioning, or smoothing product near your roots. You should only be applying your conditioner and leave in from mid lengths to your ends. In other words, no higher than where you can put your hair in a pony.
  • When shampooing, don’t be afraid to get in there and scrub between your extensions. Personally, I will take a dime size amount of shampoo, emulsify it in my hands, and shampoo in between each panel. If you don’t do this, you risk oil building up which can cause your extensions to slip.
  • Last but not least, make sure you are thoroughly rinsing all your shampoo/conditioner out. Think of when you are rinsing a dish in the sink, you rinse until the water runs clear. Same thing with your extensions. Rinse completely to avoid product build up, as it can make your hair feel waxy if you do not.

#3. Leave in Conditioner & Treatment Oil

It is very important to apply a leave in conditioner on damp hair after shampooing your hair. This will protect your hair and keep it moisturized between washes. There are a variety of leave in conditioners for each hair type.

 

My personal favorite leave in cocktail for frizzy hair, is the Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray paired with the Arrojo Shine Lux Oil. They both offer thermal protection and frizz-free hair for up to 72 hours.

Applying a generous amount of oil to the ends of your hair to keep the extensions soft, moisturized, frizz free. As a bonus, this also offers thermal protection up to 450 degrees.

Styling Products : Tips and Tricks:

  • Make sure you only apply leave in conditioner ponytail down. As mentioned above, if you put it any higher, it will cause slippage.
  •  For the best results I recommend applying oil and a leave in on damp hair ponytail down
  • After styling you can also apply a pea size of oil to your ends to make it shiny and keep it frizz free. Or you can use a dry oil spray which makes sure you never over do it.
  • In between shampoos, you can apply a few drops of oil to your ends to keep it fresh and break down any product build up.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Common Questions:

How should I wear my hair when sleeping?

I recommend brushing it out and securing it in a low pony or loose side braid. This will prevent it from tangling and will keep it contained.

 

How often should I be shampooing my hair?

This varies from person to person. Someone with very oily hair will need to wash more often than someone who does not get oily as fast. A good way to tell if it’s time to wash is when your hair starts to lack volume and is starting to get oily. You should at least be washing it at least 1-2 times a week.

 

Can I put my hair up with extensions?

Yes indeed. You may have to do some detailing with a brush to hide the tapes. For this I recommend using the Spornette Little Wonder Brush. Its bristles work great for smoothing the hair.

Can I workout with my extensions?

Yes, just make sure you secure it back in a low pony or braid. If you workout everyday, instead of shampooing every day, try rinsing thoroughly and applying conditioner to the ends every other shampoo.

 

Are tape extensions human hair?

100%. This means you can pretty much do anything with them that you can with your regular hair.

 

How much are Tape In Extensions?

The best way to gauge the cost, is to come in for a complimentary consultation so that a stylist can recommend which of our services will work best for you. For a general idea of our services, our price menu lists all of our services and pricing.

 

How long does the hair last?

Each new set lasts anywhere from 6 months to a year depending on how well you take care of your hair.

 

How often do I need to get them moved up?

Any salon extension needs maintenance every 6-8 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows, your stylist will recommend coming in at 6 weeks the first time and from there you can decide if 6 weeks works, or if you could go 7 or 8.

 

What if one of my tapes slips out?

In the case that this happens, feel free to reach out to the salon and ask for a quick fix. You can pretty much get in same day and it takes less than 15 minutes.

That’s It!

Now that you know exactly how to take care of your extensions, have fun with them! If you have any other questions or think I missed something, feel free to let me know. And if you’re in the DFW area, and want beautiful hair, come see me at Bigger Better Hair! I would love to make your hair dreams come true!

 


 

Something huge has happened in the last year with regards to hair color.  Olaplex is a revolutionary product that, when added to hair color, bleach, smoothing treatments, and even perms, improves the hair quality while processing.  Yep, you read that right:  it improves your hair quality when used with chemicals.  We are proud to be an Olaplex Salon in Dallas.

How It Works


This may get too technical, but we hope this makes sense so you understand.  Normally, your hair is colored, highlighted, smoothing treatment, or permed, it breaks down the Disulfide bonds inside your hair strands.  This is why we get split ends, and have to be cautious when coloring hair because the risk of damage is always there.

Olaplex is a bond multiplier containing a single active ingredient, Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate. Olaplex works by finding single sulfur hydrogen bonds and cross linking them back together to form disulfide bonds before, during and after services. This means it actually strengthens your hair while you color it, or use any chemical treatment.

Olaplex is the only product of its kind with 8 worldwide patents publishing soon. Olaplex is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, and is never tested on animals.

 

Olaplex How

 

In Salon Usage – Step 1 & 2


Olaplex is an additive that can be added to hair color, bleach, high lift color, gloss, toners, chemical relaxers, perms, keratin treatments, and smoothing treatments.  When used in conjunction with salon chemicals, it strenghtens your hair and decreases the chances of breakage significantly.

Olaplex is a 3 part system that helps rebuild bonds.  Step 1 is added to your chemical service in salon.  Step 2 is a conditioning treatment added in the shampoo bowl at the salon.  Step 3 is an at home treatment you use to maintain the health and condition of your hair.

At Home Treatment – Step 3


The No.3 Bond Perfector is designed for at-home use.  It is best to apply to clean, towel-dried hair.

  1. After you shampoo your hair, gently towel dry so it is not soaking wet.
  2. Apply a generous amount of the No.3 Bond Perfector to towel-dried hair and comb/brush for even distribution.
  3. Leave on for a minimum of 10 minutes. Keep in mind, the longer it’s on, the more effective it is.  Pro tip: We recommend sleeping with it in, and re-washing your hair the following morning.
  4. Rinse, shampoo and condition using your normal conditioning regimine.

This is NOT a conditioning treatment OR a leave-in treatment. It is meant to be shampooed out of the hair.   We recommend following this routine at least once a week.  For seriously damaged hair, 2-3 times a week may be necessary.

 

If you are looking to skip a haircut, or are trying to let your hair grow, we always recommend the Brazilian Blowout Split End Repair treatment.  It is a quick, 10 minute treatment you can add to any other service that already includes a shampoo/blowdry.

Here’s a look into why our clients love the Brazilian Blowout Split End Repair add-on treatment…

 

How it works


  • The Brazilian Blowout Split End Treatment instantly Repairs, Strengthens, Seals & Protects Ends For Up To 4 Weeks.
  • It uses a Thermo-Marine Bonding System that fills in and binds broken hair fibers together, instantly mending split ends.
  • The Brazilian Super Nutrient Complex also prevents future breakage by protecting ends against daily styling and environmental damage.

The end result is instantly repaired, stronger, healthier ends protected against future breakage.  You may wash your hair, exercise, put your hair in a clip, ponytail or bun without worry!  Add this service to your hair color, or hair cut appointment and it only takes 10 minutes.

Cost


Brazilian Blowout Split End Treatment is an add on service.  Add on services can be added on to any other service that already includes a shampoo and blowdry, which is crucial for this treatment to be successfully applied.  If you add this treatment to your service, the price is an additional $25.

Nioxin hair products in Dallas are revolutionary in their scalp balancing and restorative hair abilities.  Here is a simple look into why we love Nioxin hair products and recommend them to clients.  Even though Nioxin is a very familiar name to many people, we have found many clients who have been incorrectly using the products and/or not using the correct system for their hair and needs.

What are Nioxin hair products?


Nioxin uses advanced technologies to balance scalp issues, and/or deliver fuller, denser-looking hair. In 1987, the founder of these products was experiencing thinning hair after the birth of her first child, and began researching treating the scalp with skincare methods.

 

Why we love Nioxin Hair products


Nioxin offers a very customized line of hair products that specifically target people with overly oily, or dry scalp issues.  Also, they offer several custom products for the more than 50% of people worldwide who experience thinning hair.

1.)   They offer several “3 System Kits” – Inluding Cleanser, Scalp Treatment and Scalp Revitalizer.  Each is tailored by hair type and specific scalp trouble to deliver a healthy scalp and/or denser-looking hair.

2.)   Even if you have no scalp issues, the Nioxin cleansers are a fantastic cleansing shampoo that is color safe, and great for every hair type.

3.)   The Diaboost styling product has a “Thickening Xtrafusion Treatment,” scientifically designed and tested to increase the thickness of each of your existing hair strands which gives fuller looking hair.

4.) Nioxin believes in their products so much, they offer a 30 day guarantee when you buy them in a network salon.  If within 30 days you use the entire kit, send it back to them for a full refund.

If you are looking for a vivid or pastel hair color, our go-to color product that we use is Joico K-Pak Color Intensity tones.  The Joico K-Pak Color Intensity range offers the most potent, bright, and vivid hair colors for those who are looking for extra bold pop of color.  This is an in-depth look at why we use Joico Color Intensity vivid and pastel hair colors in our Dallas hair color salon.


Color Intensity

Why Joico?


  • The Joico K-Pak Color Intensity collection has over 20 intermixable shades, with the option of mixing and blending for custom colors.
  • These intensely concentrated pigments deliver over-the-top vibrancy that lasts through 15 shampoos. Pro Tip: We recommend a customized product cocktail for maintaining these hair colors to ensure your color stays bright and true to tone for as long as possible.  
  • Packed with award-winning K-PAK’s powerful Quadramine Complex® for guaranteed healthier hair after every color service.
  • Ultra nourishing Kukui Nut Oil leaves hair gorgeously conditioned and amps up shine.

How much is a Vivid hair color?


Usually an additional $25 color charge is added to the hair color service you need to achieve your desired result.   This is because these colors are mixed differently and we use much more product than a traditional hair color service.   A color consultation is recommended for fashion hair color services.

Working at a Dallas Wella color salon, I prefer to use Wella Color Touch for demi-permenant hair color.  Who is Wella, and why do I use their product?  Here is a simplified look at Wella hair color in Dallas.

 

Who is Wella, and what is Color Touch?

 

Wella is one of the oldest hair care companies in the world.  Beginning in the 1880’s, Wella has been groundbreaking and an industry standard in regards to hair color.  They offer several brands, from consumer to professional, that are known throughout the world.

 

There are several types of hair color, such as permanent, demi-permanent, demi-plus, and semi-permanent.  Color Touch is the professional demi-permanent hair color by Wella.  This is more than just a hair color, color touch is packed full of ingredients that leave your strands full of condition and shine.

 

What is Demi-Permanent Hair Color?

 

Demi-permanent hair color is deposit-only hair color.  It does not completely cover gray, but it will blend gray up to 50%.  This is great for someone who wants dimension when covering their gray hair color rather than a solid hair color.

 

Demi-permanent is also great for low-lighting, refreshing the color of your ends, toning blondes, or doing a color gloss service.  Demi-permanent hair color is great for these services because its light ammonia/peroxide levels offer the safest amount of processing on your strands.
