What are Tape In Hair Extensions?
Tape In extensions are the newest hair extension method on the market. Tape In Hair extensions are thin tape wefts, generally 1.5 inch wide pre-taped hair wefts, that get “taped-in” in between your own hair in “sandwich” like bonds. It is the most requested professional hair extension method in salons worldwide. This method is 100% natural, requires no tools or chemicals, and lasts up to three months-and the hair is reusable! It takes less than an hour to apply an entire head with zero damage.
Let’s jump into some of the amazing benefits of wearing them. They are by far the most comfortable hair extensions ever. No, seriously. They look incredibly natural and lay perfectly slim and flat against your head. That is saying a lot if you have any experience with other methods like Clip Ins or traditional individual permanent hair extensions. This really matters when you are wearing them all day every day for months at a time.
Not only that, say goodbye to hours and hours of installation time. If you have any experience at all with traditional extensions this is life changing. This will be the most pain free, hassle free, time saving install you have ever done. Installs as fast as 30 minutes and many times no longer than an hour. Tape Ins have changed the game with super easy removals too. Traditional extensions were often glued in with hundreds of rock hard individual strands. You can imagine the process for taking them out was just as crazy or worse than putting them in. Unlike traditional glue ins you can actually reuse the hair. Placement options are super versatile and your hair can even be worn in a high ponytail all while looking incredibly natural. Thin or fine hair? No problem. Single sided tapes give you the option to install less hair than the standard double sided Tape Ins.
So let’s see: fast install, crazy comfortable, easy to remove, reusable, pain free, super versatile for all hair types. It’s clear why Tape Ins have risen straight to the top of the hair extension world. Did we miss anything?!
Yes! Easy to care for at home too! They are installed typically in 1.5 inch wide wefts throughout your hair. A typical install has about 20ish complete bonds instead of the traditional hundreds. This means less tiny points of contact, better anchoring to your natural hair. What does that all mean. Your far less likely to do any damage to your hair while wearing Tape Ins and makes them far easier to take care of at home.
I personally have thin fine textured hair and they hide well, while still giving me extra volume. I have been wearing them for many years now and couldn’t imagine my life without them. With my hair type/texture I really struggle to grow the kind of hair that only extensions can easily and safely give me. I love it, the few times I take them out it is like I lost my disney magical hair. The struggle is very real!
