Tape-in hair extensions are a great way to add length, volume, and dimension to your hair without spending hours in the salon. Tape-ins are also relatively affordable, easy to apply, and require less maintenance than traditional methods of hair extensions.
To apply tape-in extensions, you’ll need tape-in extensions, an applicator, a comb, and scissors. You’ll also need to section your hair into two parts so you can apply the extensions. After separating the hair, a small piece of adhesive-backed tape is placed on both sides of the extension with the help of an applicator. The extension is then carefully slid onto one side of the hair and pressed firmly so that the adhesive on the tape sticks to the hair. After it’s applied, you can use a comb to blend your natural hair with the extension and cut off any excess strands.
Once applied, tape-in extensions usually last between six weeks and two months before needing to be removed or replaced. To remove the extensions, you’ll need to use a special removal solution that can be purchased at any beauty supply store. The solution helps break down and dissolve the adhesive on the tape so it can easily be removed from the hair. After removing them, you can reapply fresh new extensions or go without.
