Help with removal

Post by PaigeElizabeth on Thu 21 Apr 2011, 9:08 pm

Okay so first of all I LOVE the tape, it's wonderful. I never would have imagined a tape could stay in for weeks but this tape is SO strong. Actually, that's kinda what I'm having a problem with. I'm having an issue with removal. How do most of you remove? I have used both c-22 and acetone, soaking the tape and trying to gently pull apart but the wefts that I "sandwiched" are giving me so much trouble. They are so tight, even after 4+ weeks of wear. The weft (I used pre made wefts) will come right off the hair pretty easily, but BOTH pieces of the sandwiched tape will stay in the hair.

I have a client coming in tomorrow for removal and she is really concerned about hair loss- she can't afford to lose any hair- so if you have any advice for me, anything I can do differently PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you!

Hi Paige
so first I am not sue if I read this right but are you saying you cant get it out of her hair ? because they are sandwiched together or the wefts are sandwiched together ?

I used the sandwich method, so her hair is in between two wefts. I can easily get the wefts off the tape/hair, but the tapes remain in the hair. It's mind boggling- these suckers just don't want to let go! Am I doing something wrong?

Also did you use glue and sandwich them together ?
Also I use super sol it a great remover I like it better than C-22 but C-22 is fine and should work ,, but I will answer this as if I was going to do it.
First I would warm up the C-22 or super solv nice a WARM -not hot but really warm and also if you can spray warm water or as hot as you can get it wit h out hurting anyone on the weft itself then -rub your fingers in between the wefts as you spray in the remover then dab a q-tip with pure acetone and dab that in between the wefts that are stuck. keep doing this until they come apart ..I have had some that were like that and my client also used glue so this was even a bigger job to get them apart but by going slow and keep spraying and dabbing you should have no problem getting them apart with out any hair loss at all..

No, I didn't even use glue, haha! That would explain it more if I had! I will try warming up the c-22, hopefully that will work. I was also thinking of sitting her under a hood dryer before I started -to maybe heat up the tape? Do you think that would be a good idea?

Just to be sure- you're saying I should do the removal on wet hair? With warm water?

Also, this is only the 3rd person that I've removed and with the other two I have had this issue of them being REALLY stuck. So I am feeling frustrated!

I also thought of maybe using the flat iron to warm up the tapes first? Or would you not suggest that?

Nope I think that's a good Idea if all the other removal tricks are not working for you then give it a try WHY NOT ..

Also I am always rubbing between the wefts the WHOLE removal
I just do it now because I think it works so great instead of just spaying and waiting ..you might give that a try .. its more work but if these tapes are staying put that great then maybe you should give that a try..


Also I forgot to answer you but YES WARM WET HAIR - should be better.. its been working better for me so far!

Your so welcome always happy to help and if you have any problems while your doing it feel free to call and if I am here I will be happy to walk you through it.
Also sounds like these girls should be washing there hair with a good conditioner before coming in that may also help..
I wash my hair and condition it every other day, sounds like they could do this and not loose any extensions :o) just a thought.. MORE conditioning :o) :lipstick:

Hi Singer! I just wanted to let you know that I used the iron to heat up the "sandwiched" wefts and it worked beautifully! I was able to get them apart so easily, and then used to c-22 (warmed up, like you said!) and acetone to get the hair unstuck from the second tape. It was SO much easier, and I was able to do this take down in 45 mins but best of all with no stress! The regular ones (not sandwiched) just slid right out!

Only problem I'm having now is a little bit of tape residue on the hair. Do you have any suggestions for this? She's coming in today for a color and blow dry, and then a re install later this week, so I really want to make sure I get all that adhesive residue off for her. Thanks again!

That's Great news and I am so happy that everything was better for you this time
really all these little tips and tricks are shown in our Dvd we show you how to install and take down,
and when it comes to the any glue or oils from the removers all you need to do is take 1/2 baking soda 1/2 clarifying shampoo and mix them together in a bowl is what I do then I just brush it on or just pull it through with my hands where the residue may be left and do this 2 -3 then wash and condition as you would and that should do the trick - you should have very squeaky clean hair for your new install..

Also I am not sure how long your waiting between take down and installs, but you can go 6 weeks easy -depending on how fast or slow your clients hair grows.
Because for some girls I do take downs for -4 weeks is to soon for most of them and they can get away with 6-7-8 weeks in some cases.
Tha'ts just depending on there hair growth. Cause as we all no we do not want it hanging or pulling there own hair..

Well again I am very happy that the flat iron worked for you and this is how a lot of stylist do it -just know when you do it try not to do it to long because this is how the glue from the tape really gets worked in to there hair, its kinda melting it in if you know what I mean... also I would try and buy our Supersolv
http://hairweftingtape.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10_12&products_id=16 this removers is a lot less oily and it smells wonderful.. works great..
ok let me know how it all worked out for you thanks for getting back to me today I was just going to ask you how it all went.. :lipstick:

Hi there!

I know this posting was from awhile ago, but I wanted to respond to what you said about leaving the extensions in longer. I do not use LG on this client, and I wanted to see if you though I should.

She has an oily scalp, and sweats a lot (from working) and she only washes her hair once a week (which I know you don't recommend, but it won't change). I am only getting about 4 weeks on an install with her before the wefts start slipping a little. She does not like the sandwich method because she found it uncomfortable. So- do you think if I put LG on her wefts before the tapes that I would get a longer install? Or is it just the oil that is causing them to slip? A longer install would certainly be good for me, but her biggest concern is hair loss- she would freak out if she ever thought she was losing hair with the extensions, so that's why I haven't tried glue on her up until this point.

Let me know what you think! Thanks!

PaigeElizabeth

Hi PaigeElizabeth

Wow sounds like she has a lot of demands, but wont wash her hair ?
I will keep my thought's to my self lol- Shocked but if she does not like it sandwiched
I would give the glue a try and just go VERY slow on your take down,really let
your remover work for you and if you donít try the warm-hot water in a bottle
spray it on then remover or if you can heat your remover in a hot hot cup of
water then apply it the the tape while warm that really helps brake down the
glue and tape.
But the truth is you should not lose any more hair using the glue as you would
doing the sandwich method, I have done both and felt I didnít lose any more or
less doing either method, Also you need to remind her that she is not shedding
at all with the whole install so with that said your going to have some shedding
on take down and with that said some girls shed a lot - some not at all,


What I like to do with girls like these is I tell them after the install to please
go home clean your brush and donít clean it out until you do a take down,
Now pull all of that hair out of your brush and see how much you really do shed
everyday with out thought, so of course you will have some while doing a take down.
Also I would let her know that if you thought she had damage or a lot of hair loss that
you would not keep doing this type of extension with her.

I would rather see her walk out the door with hair knowing you did the right thing for her.
This is all about saving your own hair and growing it out, not the other way around..
ok hope this helps. good luck.
Colette

I second using Super Solv

Post by autm88 on Sun 30 Oct 2011, 11:45 am

Super Solv is the best weft remover I've ever used. Other solvents are so greasy it takes forever to wash out and I've had no slippage with reinstalling it the same day using S.S. Even if I think I got all the oil out from other solvents, my reinstalls wont stay in place. They either slide down or seperate on the ends within a few days. Thanks for suggesting heating it up a bit. I didn't have to spray a second time to remove the wefts!!!! http://i145.photobuc

Hi, another thing to try is first use whatever remover you are already using, soak the tape, let client sit for 10 minutes then put client under very warm dryer for 10 minutes, they should come right out easily, without ruining your expensive flat iron. Smile

Hello Audrey and I am happy it all worked out for you YAY !
and Seela I wouldn't use anything but a junky flat iron lol ..
also I would be very careful with any remover as most have the have Solvents and Petroleum's in them
and that when heated it should not be breathed in like that ĖI am very sensitive and if you placed me in that
warm dryer I would not be in good shape after words..... I myself have to be very careful
breathing any kind of removers just sprayed on in a room..just a thought for us sensitive folk...
