More so, the tape in hair extensions don’t damage so you don’t have to worry about losing your natural hair. While using this extension, it gives room for your natural hair to grow to its full volume. Another reason to use tape in hair extension is, you can use the extension repeatedly. I am one person who loves to wear hair extension because it not only boosts my confidence but also gives me numerous options in terms of hairstyling.

Eat healthy, use treatments, get the right type of hair extension for your hair, all of these are a necessity. In my opinion, no other type of hair extension should be used asides tape in hair extension else you end up losing your hair. Hottie hair tape in hair extensions are of medical grade and can be taken off easily using our organic coconut remover. (This shouldn’t bother you because it is strong enough to hold for up to 12 weeks and will never just slip out. The extension can only happen slip out maybe when you are taking a shower but that can only happen after about 3 months of usage). With Hottie hair tape in hair extension you will never find us using any harsh chemicals and will never advice you to do that either. We strongly suggest you follow eco-friendly practices. You find out that a lot of other tape in hair extension brands make use of gel or glue base that is really strong and sticky such that you will require chemicals to take them off. This can cause loss of hair, there have been stories of women losing their due to the use of these chemicals.

As weird as this sounds, it actually is the best description to give it, because as you back comb the hair, it creates a little hair nest. However, once that is done, you will need to back up the hair up so you have space to clip the clips to your tightly to your head. Women with thin fine hair should never use fusion and weft hair extensions, these are the type of extensions that damage your kind of hair. The weight of the hair extension stresses out your natural hair and can further cause you to lose your hair, and that’s not something you’d want. Now, if you have ever suffered aby damage to your thin hair, I recommend the use of one tape weft and a single sided piece of tape. This way there isn’t so much stress or strain being put on your hair. In addition, you can add micro strands to fill in the crown of your head or alternatively apply a chemical free color.


Tips to help improve the volume of your hair daily

  • When styling, use a curling wand to create big curls and then use your fingers to run through till the end. Once that is done, spray it and the end result would be a full looking natural hair.
  • To get the perfect volume while styling your hair, make use of a flexible hair spray.
  • Apply dry shampoo intermittently when washing to remove grease and dirt that dulls up the look of the hair.
  • Be cautious of keratin treatments, their effect on the hair is dull and gives the hair a flat look which is bad for people with thin hair.
  • Once in a while make use of thickening treatments.
  • A hair that is free of chemicals is best, rather use 2 tape colors, ombre or micro-strands. With ombre you will need a light color which you would later color at the top. Less hair processing, preserves the hair.
  • Eat healthy foods that help with hair growth like, leafy greens, omega 3s, nuts etc.
