How to Care for your Tape-In Extensions

Level SalonSpa Cutting Specialist and Expert extensionist shares with us these tips to care for your tape in extensions. 

1. To sleep, wear your hair low and loose. Do not wear your hair up or in a tight bun for sleeping. 

2. For longevity, keep conditioner and deep conditioning masques off the bonds. Use only on the ends of the hair.




3. Always blow dry the bonds after getting your hair wet to avoid any slipping. 




4. To avoid any dreading or twisting, do not over extend time between appointments.

5. Blow dry gently as to not pull too hard on the bonds. 


Losing more than sleep with your new baby?


How I lost one third of my hair...

and didn't freak out.

Losing one third of your hair sounds alarming, right?

Aveda Master Artist, Callie, shares her truth as a mom and hairstylist. 
Well, if you’re a new mommy, then losing excessive amounts of hair is actually quite normal after giving birth.  Many women suffer from postpartum hair loss, known as telogen effluvium. 

Telogen Effluvium is caused by a sudden drop in estrogen, which causes hormonal distress. This leads to a high amount of hair loss. The hair loss is typically concentrated around the hairline & will tend to start growing back within 6 months of initial loss. 

So, new Mommas, there’s no need to worry all of your luscious locks will be back shortly. In the mean time, cute headbands, hats & a little side bang are great ways to blend all the new growth that you’ll begin to see. 

To help the growth process even more, ask your hairstylist for a personalized recommendation to promote hair growth. We love Aveda Invati Advanced Shampoo, Conditioner and Revitalizer. 


Don't stress, momma!

The most common hairloss is around the hairline. 

10 Minute Style

Advanced Cutting Specialist, Rachel at Level SalonSpa gives her tips on how to create a quick fun everyday look for your hair. "I get a lot of questions behind the chair on how to style or wear your natural wave pattern. I myself used to be someone who would blow dry and straighten my hair daily but ever since moving to Florida in 2009 I have learned that the humidity does not get along with my wavy hair being straight." If you are someone too that has some wave or curl to your hair but when air dried it looks frizzy or untamed, you can learn a way to quickly style it and maybe grow to love it!

  1. you need to find products that are right for your hair. Rachel recommends talking to your stylist to find the right products needed that help with frizz and that won’t weigh your hair down.
    1. gentle with your hair when wet and try not touching it while it dries.
    2. after it is dry section your hair horizontally like a top knot. Get an iron or curler that is the right size for your length of hair and set it to a lower temperature.
    3. pick up random pieces that just don’t curl right or that are to frizzy and twist them away from your face with the iron. Take little pieces, nothing to big and work slow. Now you are not going to twist every piece of hair only just a few.
    4. Drop the top section down when finished and repeat. Rachel says she tends to find the most frizz on the top of the head so remember to work slow. As you twist it smooths out your hair.
    5. Finally, just finish with lightly brushing hair with a natural boars bristle brush and set with moisture spray like Aveda dry thermal conditioner or a light hold hair spray and TAH-DAH a more structured messy wave!! This usually takes no longer then five to ten minutes which is a life saver in the mornings!
