Download Weft and Tape Hair Extension Hair Care Instructions PDF 1.04mb
Please ensure your hair is washed thoroughly with a deep cleansing shampoo PRIOR to Skin Weft/Tape being fitted and that all hair is 100% dried before placement.
DO NOT APPLY ANY COLOUR to the hair three days prior to placement as there may be colour residue left on the hair and swelling of the cuticle may occur. This can affect the adhesion of the Tape/ Skin Weft hair extensions.
DO NOT APPLY ANY KERATIN TREATMENTS or oil based products to the hair while the hair extensions are in as this will cause slipping.
DO NOT TO SHAMPOO OR CONDITION hair 72 hours after having their Showpony Skin Weft or
Tape Hair Extensions applied, as this may cause loosening.
DO NOT EXERCISE: It is not recommended to participate in any form of exercise within the initial 72 hours of hair placement as moisture from the scalp may affect the adhesion of the Tape/Skin Wefts.
We recommend using a Showpony Detangler to Brush Skin Weft/Tape Hair Extensions and to always brush hair gently prior to washing.
While Skin Wefts/Tapes are in the hair, emulsify Shampoo in hands, gently wipe over the top of the tapes. Do not massage into hair.
DO NOT APPLY CONDITIONER to the Roots of Skin Weft/Tape area, only to lengths and ends. Towel dry (Do not Rub or twist).
DO NOT USE hairspray, conditioner, Argan or Moroccan oils or products containing citrus near the root area while Skin Weft or Tape Hair Extensions are in the hair, as this can increase the chance of slipping or movement of the hair extensions.
SULPHATE FREE shampoo is to be the only product to be applied to the roots.
DO NOT USE shampoo or products containing Argan or Moroccan Oil, Protein, Citrus, High alcohol content, Keratin Treatments, or Lauryl Sulphate as this increases the chances of slippage or movement of your hair extensions. This also includes any medicated or toning shampoos, as these may affect the adhesives of the tapes causing them to slip and
Showpony advise NOT TO COLOUR any Tape/Skin Weft or Clip in Hair Extensions. If you choose to do this, then you will be doing so at your own risk. No more than a 3% developer should be used. Furthermore extreme care should be taken not get colour or water near the tapes when rinsing, as this can affect tape adhesion. You may need to retape before application.
When blow drying the hair never use high heat as this will make the hair dry and dull and may affect the adhesive of the tapes causing them to go gluggy. While using hair straighteners, curling irons or blow dryers, avoid the tape strip areas.
DO NOT SLEEP on wet or damp hair, and to loosely plait the hair when sleeping.
Refit & Move up is recommended every 6 weeks to ensure the safest Hair Extension wear.
