Can you swim with tape in extensions?
It’s OK to go swimming, of course, but don’t allow extensions to soak in water for too long, and dry them as soon as you get out of the pool or ocean. When it comes to tape-in extensions, it’s actually your sun- and skin-care products that pose the biggest threat.

Do tape in extensions ruin your hair?
Least Damaging: Tape in extensions are the least damaging on the market. They are very lightweight and do not pull on your own hair like other extensions do – they grow out with your own hair and do not tug or pull. With tape in hair extensions you will not lose hair or experience any discomfort.
How do you sleep with tape in extensions?

- Apply an overnight conditioner once a week.

Can you put your hair in a ponytail with extensions?
To create your ponytail, simply take the loose bottom half of your hair and gather it up into a ponytail around your hair extensions and secure with an elastic band. Next, unpin and smooth back your top section of hair.
Can you swim in salt water with tape in extensions?
If you like wearing hair extensions and you’re planning to swim in the ocean, you are probably wondering if it’s safe to wear your clip-ins while you’re swimming. The short answer is ‘no’. Swimming in saltwater may benefit the skin and health in general, but that can’t be said for the hair (extensions or not).
Can you sweat after getting tape in extensions?
For starters, the first 48 hours after getting your tape ins fitted are a no-no for sweating. You want the tapes to bond properly and they need this extra time to settle in. Give yourself a break and stay away from that spin class for a couple of days. Your tape in extensions will thank you for it.
