Step 1: Locate

First of all, locate all the starting points between the tape hair extensions and your own hair. This may be easier if you tie up all your remaining hair with sectioning clips or elastic bands.

 

How to remove tape hair extensions

Locate the tape hair extensions

Step 2: Spray

After locating the tapes, spray on our ZALA tape hair extensions solvent/glue remover. (This is a great cleaner/remover without the harsh chemicals; this solvent is fast acting on most soft bonds adhesives and tapes while still being gentle on the skin). Do not use a sparse amount of solvent, you must be generous while spraying to ensure you have enough solvent to remove the adhesive on the tape. A limited amount of solvent will work poorly.

How to remove tape hair extensions

Spray on solvent/glue remover

Step 3: Apply

If while removing the tape hair extensions you feel that your own hair is pulling therefore causing damaging friction, keep applying the solvent until the tapes are removed easily without anymore pull on your own natural hair.

How to remove tape hair extensions

Step 4: Wash

There is a slight possibility that all the tapes may still not be 100% removed. We would highly recommend for you to wash your hair with cold water, while also scrubbing quite forcefully. But be sure that you are also gentle enough not to damage your own roots. Use an adequate amount of shampoo on your hair until your hair is completely clean. Be sure to never use hot water for the wash as there is a slight chance it will melt the adhesive on the tape. The reason for cold water is because it solidifies the glue, and as a result it will remove the adhesive.

Step 5: Dry

Even while drying your hair after you have washed it use a cold setting as hot air will have the same effect that hot water has on the adhesive.

Step 6: Comb

After you have dried your hair, comb through efficiently to remove any remaining pieces of tape. The key on how to remove tape hair extensions is to be patient and coherent, and you will achieve great results with little to no great deal of effort.

Clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions

The battle begins!

The battle is on! Clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions. Which hair extension method is best? Which is more popular? Step by step, we break down the positives and negatives between clip in hair extensions and tape hair extensions. Read below to find out the results for clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions.

clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions

clip vs tape

 Clip in hair extensions

clip in hair extensions

Clip in hair extensions

Clip in hair extensions are the least permanent technique of all the hair extension methods available today. The hair weft has small clips sewn into them. A set of clip in hair extensions will usually have about eight or nine strips that are all placed at different sections of the head. This creates the right amount of body and volume for the person using them.

 

Positives:

1) Comfort + speed + easiness for how they can be applied/removed.
2) Here at ZALA, you will be guaranteed value for the weight/thickness.
3) You can adjust the thickness/volume to your needs.
4) Clip in hair extensions are very hair safe meaning no damage can be made to the natural hair follicle once applied.

Negatives:

1) They cannot be worn during sleep.This may cause excessive friction against the already sensitive scalp.
2) Depending on the brand and quality, the clips may move around in the weft causing them to separate from the weft. At ZALA, we use only the best quality professional salon silicon clips to ensure no movement occurs.
3) Clip in hair extensions can be harder to layer to match your hair as each application might be slightly different.

 

Tape hair extensions

tape hair extensions

Tape hair extensions

Tape hair extensions are a widely known hair extension technique. They are designed for people who are seeking those extra inches of hair but would like a more permanent method of extension. They come attached with strips of clear double sided tape which is then attached to the base of the weft. These wefts are then taped to the start of the hair at the scalp. This results in a longer lasting method of hair extension.

Positives:

1) Tape hair extensions can last 7-9 weeks, and can be re-applied 4 times when using high quality hair like ZALA.
2) They look very natural and can be styled into your hair easily with no extensive effort involved.
3) If they are applied correctly they should be a safe form of hair extension for your hair. This is ensuring that you follow the correct care routine for your particular set of tape hair extensions.

Negatives:

1) If they are not applied correctly they can be messy and not sit secure or flat against the head.
2) Application experience is needed to apply the tape hair extensions.
3) Tape hair extension solvent is needed to remove them. You will normally need two people to complete this process.

 

Clip in hair extensions vs tape hair extensions….so who has won? The results are a tie!

Clip in hair extensions and tape hair extensions are extremely difficult to compare against each other as they both offer completely different benefits and limitations. We are just happy that there are two very suitable existing techniques available to cater to everyone’s personal lifestyle and needs.

In this day and age, hair extensions have become a breakthrough to the beauty industry – rising in popularity by the second! Hair extensions are great for adding extra length and thickness to all hair types, creating that ultimate glam look that all the hollywood stars have. We show you five benefits of tape hair extensions.

Whether you need hair extensions for special events, or just for a casual day at the office, they are ideal if you are looking for a small to drastic change without cutting or altering your own hair.

In 2014, the most popular hair extension method would have to be tape hair extensions. Giving you that luscious and natural look, they are easy to maintain and style, and best of all – they can last from 6 to 12 weeks.

If you have been looking for an alternative and more comfortable option in comparison to clip in, bead or weave in hair extensions, tape hair extensions are the right method for you.

Five benefits of tape hair extensions

 Long lasting

1) Tape hair extensions are great for anyone looking for a more permanent hair extension method. They can last anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks.

Tape in extensions are comfortable

2) Tape hair possess a more comfortable feeling in your hair. They lay flat against the head, all while achieving a more natural look.

Tape extensions are re-usable

3) Depending on the hair quality, they are usually re-usable. Meaning you are able to remove the tape using a solvent and re-tape them up to three times.

Easier to style

4) Tape hair extensions are generally much easier to style, including straightening and curling. This is because they sit and are applied on the head so naturally.

Great Quality

5) Tape hair extensions are ideal because they will not damage to your hair like other hair low quality hair extensions can. This is due to excessive pulling and weight on the hair. This is a huge benefit as long as your care and grooming routine is being performed properly.

How to apply tape hair extensions

Tape hair extensions have become extremely popular over the last few years due to their easy application method. We show you how to apply tape hair extensions and explain why these possess longer lasting qualities over other hair extensions on the market. Whether you’re after subtle blonde beach waves, or long and sleek dark locks – tape hair extensions are the ideal option for you.

The hair is held in place by double-sided tape that is applied by placing two pieces of the adhesive tape together, with your hair sitting in between. The process can take minutes within your own home, and does not need styling assistance unless you feel more comfortable applying it professionally.

How to apply tape hair extensions

Step one:

Section your hair horizontally in line with the tips of your ears, making sure you start from the bottom of the neck. This will make it easier for you with how to apply tape hair extensions.

How  to apply tape hair extensions

 

Step two:

Start by placing the first tape hair extension into your hair gently. Be careful not to apply the extension too close to the root of the hair. This should allow the tape extension to move and sit comfortably without pulling and causing too much friction between your scalp and the roots of your hair. With this method, you are allowing for the tape hair extensions to also be styled (ponytail or bun updo, tight curls or braids) without forcefully pulling on your roots too much. Otherwise, the tape hair extensions could potentially be uncomfortable and unable to style. This could also cause damage or inflammation to the scalp.

Step three:

Raise the first applied extension up, clipping it to your hair bundled on top. Some people are very concerned with how to apply tape hair extensions by this point! But do not stress too much, it is completely normal for your own hair to attach itself up to the tape hair extension.

installing-tape-in-hair-extensions

Step four:

Take your second tape hair extension and apply it by pressing it tightly against your hair with the first tape extension that you have already clipped up. Your tape extensions are now neatly stuck together with your own hair sitting comfortably in between.

8129_51b12b72

 

Step five:

Repeat steps from 1-4, ensuring that the tape hair extensions are sitting side by side with a 1cm distance in between each extension, to also allow for some movement over time.

Complete your first row of tape, and then move on to your second row (usually 1 inch up from first row) and work your way up on your head. Keep in mind that if you are placing your extensions too far onto the left and right sides of your head, your tape hair extensions may become visible. Ensure that your tape hair extensions stay covered by your own hair.

hair-extensions

You have now learnt how to apply tape hair extensions! Your new tape hair extensions will usually last from around 6-12 weeks, depending on your care routine and how often you choose to groom them. It is important to brush through your tape extensions twice daily to ensure any shedding that may occur (we lose an average of 100 hair strands a day anyway) so all in all you should not be loosing too much hair more than you would normally.

It is also essential that you are sleeping with your tape hair extensions in a ponytail or a loose braid to keep them from matting in your sleep. Depending on the quality of your tape extensions after your initial application (and as well as you have groomed them properly in the duration that you had them in), your tape extensions can be removed and re-taped for a second and maybe even a third application. Long luscious hair for everyone all year round!

Hollywood Hair extensions

You can guarantee that even our most adored hollywood celebrities are lusting for those voluminous sweeps of hair just as much as we are!

Common beauty mistakes

Every day we are told what we should be doing to make sure we keep our skin healthy and our beauty routine looking perfect, but what are the most common beauty mistakes so many of us make?

Removing makeup

Removing our days make up before bed is so important. We need to let our skin breath and we need to ensure we have unblocked any pores to ensure we don’t break out!
How to remove make up properly:
Begin by using a gentle face pad and remove any visible makeup. This never completely removes all make up and certainly doesn’t cleanse the face so secondly wash your face with a face scrub and remove all the excess makeup.
remove-makeup-properly

Shaping your eyebrows

Every beauty blogger and meme can tell you, “don’t let someone with bad eyebrows tell you what to do!” Eyebrows are not only the first thing we can see when looking at someone, but they can do so much to change your look! They have the power to make you seem slimmer in the face or like you have lived in a cave for the last year. They have full control over our appearance whether we like it or not.

Common beauty mistakes

how to shape eyebrows

How to shape eyebrows

It’s best to seek out a professional for the initial brow shaping. After all, no one wants wonky brows
Remember the golden rules: only ever pluck 1-2 hairs at a time before stepping back and surveying your work. And always follow the natural curve of the brow – don’t force a shape. Finally, thin brows are unflattering so aim to keep them as full as possible.

Beauty products and expiry dates , they do go bad!

Found that old blush that Grandma Betty gave you in 1999? No. It is not “still good”.
Not only does the consistency of products like foundation become a little less than perfect, they can also create serious infections due to build-up of bacteria’s!
This is one of our huge and common beauty mistakes we think we can get away with.

CAUTION

CAUTION

When is it time to bin particular products?

Mascara- when we pump our mascara wand into the product, we are oxidising it and therefore letting bacteria grow in the tube. Having the same tube of mascara for a long time allows that bacteria to grow and therefore become harmful. It can lead to eye infections which are NOT pretty!
Eyeliner and lip liner pencils- Pencils are great, as sharpening them really does remove any unhygienic bacteria that is sitting on them. Sharpen them a little just before most uses and this should prolong their life!
Foundations- Foundations are resilient and last around 12-18 months. Just watch out for changes in colour or texture or if it no longer gives the coverage it once did.

Treat your mane

Our hair goes through A LOT! Dying, bleaching, being tied back being teased, getting caught on handbag straps! We should take the time to say sorry at least once a fortnight with a really nourishing mask or oil based treatment. Spend the day at home, catch up on some emails and put a facemask and hair mask on all day. Just let it soak in and do all the hard work! Don’t let this be one of our common beauty mistakes, this is a luxury ladies!

Hair treatments

Moisturise moisturise moisturise!

One of the most seen common beauty mistakes! Give your thirsty skin some moisture! Our skin is out in the open a lot in Summer and we find ourselves putting more lotions on than in Winter. We barely look out our legs let alone remember to lather them up with a rich moisturising lotion. Moisturising skin will help prevent stretch marks and keep it looking youthful so get to it!
