HOW TO REMOVE TAPE IN HAIR EXTENSIONS

 

After around 6-8 weeks of wear, you’ll notice the tapes will have moved down a few centimetres due to the growth of your natural hair 🙂 It’s important to remove and re-apply your tapes so that you prolong their lifespan and get the best results. You will need:

  • Tape adhesive solvent – ZALA solvent is the only solvent we recommend to remove tape hair extensions.
  • Sectioning clips
  • Tail comb – this is optional, but can come in handy for separating pieces.
The BEST solvent for removing your tape hair extensions!

The BEST solvent for removing your tape hair extensions!

  1. Start by sectioning off your hair to locate the tape pieces.
  2. Spray a generous amount of ZALA solvent directly onto the tape tabs and let this sit for at least 1-2 minutes.
  3. Then, use your fingers to carefully separate the tape pieces. Keep applying solvent until the tapes come apart easily and slide right out of your hair. This is super important to ensure all pieces are safely removed without any damage 🙂
  4. Sandwich both pieces together and set aside before repeating this method on the rest of your extensions.
  5. Once all pieces have been removed, give your natural hair and the extensions a good shampoo & condition to remove any leftover adhesive and rinse out all solvent. Please note: as ZALA solvent is oil based, it may take 2-3 shampoo’s before all solvent is removed. 

And you’re done! You’re hair extensions are now ready to be re-applied. Did you know, you can re-use your ZALA tape hair extensions 3-4 times? Yep! We have a full guide on exactly how:

Must Have Products for Hair Extensions

SOFT BRISTLED BRUSH

First things first, detangling with the correct brush is vital! For clip ins, you’re going to want to opt for a soft-bristled brush with plenty of flexibility. Our holy-grail hair brush is the ZALA Tangle Tamer which is gentle on your locks and prevents shedding & snagging.

 

LOOP BRUSH

If you’ve got tape hair extensions, a loop brush is for you! As the name suggests, this brush has looped bristles which are super gentle when detangling. A loop brush is a game changer for tape hair extensions to ensure no pulling or tugging on the bonds.

HAIR EXTENSION CASE & HANGER

It’s super important to protect your hair extensions when they’re not being worn! This is our top tip for maintaining their condition and keeping them soft & silky for as long as possible. The ZALA Protect Me Bag is on our absolute vital list for must have products for hair extensions. Not only does the protective case guard your extensions from humidity and dust, the hanger secure all pieces in place and acts as an extra pair of hands when curling and styling your extensions.

 

SILK PILLOW CASE

For tape hair extensions users, it might be worth switching up your pillow case! Although braiding your locks before bed helps to avoid knots and tangles, a silk pillow case will be sure say goodbye to bed hair. Silk pillow cases do wonders for tape hair extensions, elimanating any pulling and tugging throughout the night which prevents damage over time. This mean’s they’re perfect to maintain the condition of your luxury locks!

SULFATE & PARABEN FREE PRODUCTS

Last but certainly not least, sulfate & paraben free products are a must! We always recommend high quality shampoo and conditioner, free of ingredients such as sulfate and parabens which can be extremely drying on your extensions over time.

How to Cut Hair Extensions

Having a little trouble blending your hair extensions? Or do you prefer a more tapered, layered look when it comes to your locks? We’ve got you girl! Check out our full guide on how to cut hair extensions so that you have the most blended, natural looking tresses.

how to cut hair extensions

HOW TO CUT HAIR EXTENSIONS

 

Although ZALA hair extensions come ready to be worn straight out of the pack, a little trimming and layering can really help you achieve the most natural look once applied! You may also want to cut your hair extensions if you prefer a more tapered, layered look, as ZALA hair is super thick to the very ends. So, let’s get right into the essential cutting techniques to blend your hair extensions!

TECHNIQUE #1 – SLICING

how to cut hair extensions 3

First up, slicing! This technique is perfect for adding shape around the face. To layer the front pieces, start by locating where your natural hair ends which will indicate where to start cutting. Then, hold a section of your hair extensions between your fingers and gently start cutting downwards in a slow diagonal motion. When cutting, it’s super important to always keep your scissors moving with the blades open!

TECHNIQUE #2 – POINT CUTTING

how to cut hair extensions

Next up, point cutting! This is used to feather out the ends of the hair and is ideal for getting rid of any blunt lines. To point cut, take the ends of your extensions and cut straight up into the hair. When using this cutting technique, it’s essential you’re cutting straight up and in line with the hair to ensure you’re only taking out thickness and not length.

TECHNIQUE #3 – SLITHERING

how to cut hair extensions 2

Very similar to slicing, the slithering technique removes bulk to create more feathered locks. It’s also great to create really subtle layers throughout the hair. When ‘slithering’, take a section of hair and cut down the middle, using the same motion as the sliding technique. Again, always keep the blades open and moving! Where the sliding technique is perfect for your front layers, slithering is more ideal for layering the rest of your extensions to create a more tapered look.

TECHNIQUE #4 – BLUNT CUTTING

how to cut hair extensions 5

Lastly, blunt cutting! After layering and shaping your extensions to taste, you may end up with slightly wispy or uneven ends. This is where blunt cutting comes in handy! Simply pull all your hair to the front and hold your hair using your fingers as a guide. For a more blunt look, cut straight across or if you prefer a slightly softer look, use your point cutting technique.

And there you have it – everything you need to know on how to cut hair extensions! Remember, if you are unsure or not confident cutting, always take your extensions to a professional to ensure you achieve the results you desire 🙂 Please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly support team at [email protected] if you have any questions regarding blending your ZALA’s.

How to Reapply Tape Hair Extensions

At ZALA, we love tape in hair extensions for so many reasons! Not only do they achieve your hair goals instantly and let you wake up with your dream hair everyday, they are super easy to reapply! Want to know how? We’ve got you sorted. Read on for our full guide on how to reapply tape hair extensions.

how to reapply tape hair extensions

How to Reapply Tape Hair Extensions

First things first, let’s cover the essentials you’ll need when reapplying your tapes:how to reapply tape hair extensions

  • Solvent – ZALA solvent is fast acting on soft bonds and oil based to be gentle on your locks
  • Tape adhesive – pre-cut adhesive tabs are our most recommendation when reapplying tape hair extensions! They make the whole process neat, quick and easy.
  • Tail Comb – a must have for reapplying tapes
  • Sectioning clips – essential for even application

HOW TO REAPPLY TAPE HAIR EXTENSIONS:

  1. Start by locating the tape pieces and using your sectioning clips to get your hair out of the way.
  2. Then, spray your solvent directly on the tape tabs making sure to use a generous amount. ZALA solvent is designed specifically for our tape range to quickly dissolve the adhesive.
  3. Use your tail comb to carefully seperate the tape pieces and loosen the bond. If there is any pull or tension, keep spraying your solvent until the extensions easily slide out!
  4. Once all pieces have been removed, use your fingers to take off any leftover adhesive and then give the extensions a good shampoo & condition. This ensures any residue from the solvent is removed before application.
  5. Next, it’s time to retape the extensions! As this step can be a little time consuming, luckily ZALA tape tabs are pre-cut to speed up the process. Simply take one tape tab, place on top of the sticky side of the piece and then remove the paper backing when applying.
  6. Now that all pieces are ready to be reapplied, follow our appliction guide and install them as normal! Yep – it’s that easy 🙂

We are seriously lusting over this look at ZALA! And although it may look intricate, it’s actually super easy! So, let’s get into exactly how to achieve this romantic updo:

  1. First things first, apply hair extensions! This step is optional, but we LOVE to apply a set of ZALA hair extensions before styling as these add tonnes of volume and make all the difference for end result. Our gorgeous model Eliza is wearing her ZALA 20″ tape hair extensions in Chestnut Brown #6 and Snickers #4/12.
  2. Start by curling your hair. Although you won’t see the curls, they make styling updos SO much easier! For this look, we used the ZALA Cosmo Wand which is our recommended styling tool for Valentines day.
  3. Next, section off your hair into 3 parts: two medium sections either side and one large section at the back.
  4. Then, take a piece from the back section and tie into low side ponytail. This forms the base of the look and will act as the foundation to work around.
  5. Time to start layering! Taking small pieces at a time, twist, braid, wrap and pin around your ponytail. The key to this look is texture, so keep alternating techniques and the direction of the hair each time.
  6. Continue layering and pinning until all your hair is secured in the updo. This may take some time, but the end result is stunning!
  7. Gently pull out a few pieces around your face and finish with a light spritz of hairspray.

How to Blend Hair Extensions with Thick Hair

Wanting to add length to your naturally thick hair, but struggling blending your hair extensions? Never fear! Our guide on how to blend hair extensions with thick hair will have everyone thinking those long locks are all your own.

How to Blend Hair Extensions with Thick Hair

CHOOSING THE RIGHT HAIR EXTENSIONS

HAIR QUALITY

First things first, it’s important to consider the type of hair extensions you are using. The best hair extensions to blend with thick hair are no doubt 100% Human Remy Hair Extensions! Not only are these completely safe to style, they provide a super natural finish as the cuticles are intact and aligned in the same direction. This mimics the look of your natural hair, making the extensions undetectable once applied.

THICKNESS

Ever noticed that obvious line between your natural hair and the extensions? Yep, this is one of the most telltale signs! Our top tip on how to blend hair extensions with thick hair is to ensure they match the thickness of your natural hair. We recommend ZALA clip in hair extensions triple or quad weft 9 piece sets. These have not one, but three or four wefts sewn into each piece to create an extra thick set, perfect for thick hair types!

If you’re looking to lengthen your locks, then you’ll also need to make sure the extensions are thick to the very ends. A sign of poor quality hair extensions are thin, ratty ends which make it extremely difficult to blend with thick hair. At ZALA, all our hair extensions are double drawn for equal thickness from top to tip. This ensures plenty of hair to work with for seamless natural blending

BLENDING & STYLING FOR SEAMLESS BLENDING

Once you’ve chosen the perfect set for your hair, it’s all down to blending & styling. Styling is super important to ensure the extensions are completely undetectable once applied. For a sleek look, go over your locks and the extensions with a straightener to blend any kinks. Otherwise, our go-to look for a super natural finish are definitely curls! Curls are amazing at concealing any harsh lines and make it so easy to achieve seamless blending with thick hair. When styling hair extensions with thick hair types, the ZALA Cosmo Wand is our most recommend curling wand.

The most gentle way to detangle your extensions is working from tip to top using a brush that’s hair extension safe. Our favourite brush to quickly and easily get rid of knots is the ZALA Tangle Tamer which is super gentle on your locks.

HYDRATION BOOST

Next, if your hair extensions have lost their shine and are feeling a bit dry, give them good wash with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. We often recommend washing your hair extensions if you notice a change in their appearance or feel. Once fresh and clean, up the hydration and apply a deep conditioning treatment to bring them back to their original soft & silky condition.

SMOOTH STYLING

Once you’ve washed and treated the set, it’s time to style them. To get them feeling super silky, smooth over with a straightener whilst brushing through the hair. This is our top tip to reduce frizz and bring back their shine! Check out exactly how to revive your hair extensions using this technique below.

 

SAFE STORAGE

Last but certainly not least, correct storage is key! To avoid this whole process and prolong the life of your hair extensions, it’s super important to store them correctly. And no, a shoebox doesn’t cut it! The best way to store your hair extensions is in a protective case like our Protect Me Bag. This handy little bag is a case and carrier in one. It zips up neatly and can be hung in your cupboard, out of sight and protected from humidity and other nasties. This is seriously vital for all hair extension lovers!

WATERFALL BRAID

We are in LOVE with this stunning waterfall braid created by @hairbyshauna.elizabeth using her ZALA hair!

This waterfall braid is serious #hairgoals! It’s the perfect way to add a little interest to your locks during the festive season. Despite how intricate it looks, it’s actually pretty easy to achieve with a little practice! Before styling, we like to apply a set of ZALA clip in hair extensions to make braiding a whole lot easier and transform the style. For this look, start with a regular french braid on one side of your hair. Then as you work your way to the back of your locks, swap the outer section with a piece from the other side of your hair. Continue this technique all the way down to create that stunning waterfall effect.

LUSCIOUS CURLS

Denim Hair: Colour Trend

2016 has already brought us so many colour trends to obsess over. The latest being denim hair! Yep, that’s right! The new hue is reminiscent of all shades of denim. Read on for some serious colour inspiration and everything you need to know about demin hair <3

Denim Hair: Colour Trend

denim hair Just like denim, the trend comes in all different hues and styles. Some dark, some light, we’ve even seen denim ombre! The denim hair trend basically encompasses stonewash greys, indigo’s and faded blues. We are lusting over the denim hair trend as the possibilities are endless!

 This new colour trend is gracing the locks of girls all over social media. Denim hair is perfect for those who want to have coloured locks, without going too vibrant and bold. We love the dulled down hues of denim to create a super edgy look.

Whether you love deep blues or pastel greys, denim locks are seriously eye-catching! At ZALA we are obsessed with this statement making hue. Of course, this shade is most easily achieved for you blondies out there! However brunettes shouldn’t shy away completely! Darker locks will create the perfect base for deep denim hues <3

If you love the look but don’t want to commit to the colour. Hair Extensions are the perfect solution! ZALA Hair Extensions are 100% Human Remy Hair which means you can safely dye them your perfect denim hue! Our Ice Queen Platinum Blonde #60 is perfect for colouring as it has the brilliant ashy tones you need to get the look. Not only will a set of ZALA’s add colour, they’ll lengthen & volumize your tresses too! To blend your natural hair with the extensions, simply use a hair chalk in your desired hue and the look is complete!
