How Do Tape Hair Extensions Work?
Tape hair extensions are a quick and smooth way of adding layers of volume and length to your natural hair. Stylists love the way they can be easily installed and customers prefer them for their easy maintenance. Tape hair extensions are fused to your natural hair using adhesive bond tapes. Strips of double-sided transparent tape are attached to a weft of Remy hair and these wefts are then taped to your hair.
Tape in hair extensions have an added advantage of zero risk to a woman’s real hair. Some women prefer to just add a narrow weft of highlights put in to their natural hair to experiment with colour styles instead of colouring their real hair. This also saves time and money that would otherwise be required for other time consuming permanent hair extensions or a hair colour treatment.
A good stylist can help apply the tape-in the hair extensions in such a way that the tape bond is strong and perfectly hidden amidst natural hair. Adding a few weft sandwiches is a nice and simple way of adding volume to your hair.
Unlike the other types, tape-in hair extensions take only 30 – 60 minutes for application. They are perfect for those who want to experiment with different styles but need permanent hair extensions for the length and volume to do so. For normal to dry hair, tape-in hair extensions last longer, whereas really oily hair will need to be regularly washed with a sulphate free shampoo. Our tapes are even great for clients with short hair, it’s best to ask your hair dresser if your hair is suitable as they will be the one positioning and blending for a natural finish.
