Like any method if the aftercare isn’t right there will be damage to your own natural hair. Brush your hair often with a large loop or bristle brush so the roots don’t tangle. When brushing down try to hold the roots so you don’t pull on the extensions. Don’t let the extensions grow out more than 1-2 inch from your hair line.

Do not leave Tape Hair Extensions on for more than 3-4 months (depending on your hair growth)
