What are tape in hair extensions? Do they look natural once applied? We answer all your questions on tape hair extensions from quality, application, lifespan and care. Read on for everything you need to know on the latest technology in semi-permanent hair extensions.
TAPE IN HAIR EXTENSIONS: WHAT ARE THEY?
Tape in hair extensions are a method of semi-permanent hair extensions. Like the name suggests, the base of each piece is bonded with a clear adhesive strip. The tape tab is streamline, lightweight and undetectable once applied, which ensure seamless results. They lay completely flat against the hair and last up to 8-10 weeks in the hair once applied. It has fast become the hair extension product of choice for both consumer and hair stylists worldwide.
HOW ARE THEY APPLIED?
Tape in hair extensions are a significant leap forward in hair extensions application. Unlike other methods of semi-permanent hair extensions, tape hair extensions require no messy glue or heat and are super easy to apply. This means quick, efficient application with no damage to your natural hair! Two pieces are simply sandwiched on top of your natural hair and there is no heat required.
HOW DO YOU CARE FOR TAPE HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Like all semi-permanent methods of hair extensions, tape hair extensions will require extra care as they are worn and styled much more frequently than temporary methods. As always, opt for sulphate & paraben free products, use low heat settings when styling, detangle using a hair extension safe brush and apply deep conditioning treatments 1-2 times a week. The only extra care tips for tape hair extensions would be to avoid using too much shampoo and all oil-based products at your roots to avoid loosening the bonds. It’s super simple!
