Tape-in hair extension provides healthy and voluminous hair and allows you to change hairstyles in no time. Tape-in gives you an immediate change depending on any occasion, as you can install and remove it with no sweat. But removing your tape-ins comes with a suitable tape-in hair extension remover to avoid hair breakage.

Can you Remove Your Tape-Ins Yourself?

After installing your tape-ins for an important meeting or occasion, you might want to make your natural hair breathe, which can be removed by you or your favorite hairstylist. All you need is your hairdryer and preferred tape-in hair extension remover to be able to do it at home.

If you're concerned that you might damage your natural hair by DIY-ing your tape-in removal, you can also go to the nearest beauty salon and have them remove it for you. Tape-in hair extension removal isn't expensive if done by the professionals in a beauty salon.

How Long Does it Take to Remove Tape-In Hair Extension?

The tape-in hair extension removal is an easy and quick process. Though, of course, it depends on the state of your hair, thickness, and length. You'll be surprised to know that tape-ins are perfectly suited for individuals who don't have lengthy patience and don't want to have their natural hair waist-length.

Not to mention that tape-in hair extension is also one of the most affordable hair extensions available on the market. Want to try tape-in hair extension? Visit Michair.vn for a wide range of cheap, 100% authentic Remy high-quality tape-in hair extensions.

What are the Best Tape-In Hair Extension Removers?


You should avoid using a tape-in hair extension remover because it is not entirely safe for your natural hair. You would use it in emergency and immensely challenging situations. Alcohol can be used as a tape-in hair extension remover and do wonders.

How would you remove the tape-in hair extension if you use alcohol? The alcohol is rubbed or sprayed right above the tapes of the extension. Give enough time for the alcohol to activate as well as seep through between the tapes before gently peeling away.

When rubbing or spraying alcohol, ensure to elevate the extensions to avoid damage when re-using. Alternatively, you can make a combination by adding alcohol, water, and several drops of oil.


If you are not into commercially available tape-in hair extension remover with chemicals that can damage your natural hair, grab some oil like olive, argan, or even coconut oil. Why?

Because olive oil and natural oils can be used as a substitute. Applying oil as a replacement to chemical-based products can help you save not only money and time but also hair damage. Natural oil and olive have countless benefits to the health of your scalp and natural hair.

When using oil as a tape-in hair extension remover, be careful not to burn yourself.

Heat the oil, then put it straight to the tapes. Let it sit for the next 15 minutes to ensure that the oil has permeated through the tapes and weakened the bonds between your natural hair. You'll be able to effortlessly separate the tape-ins from your own natural hair.

If you compare the natural remover to a commercial remover, the DIY remover takes significantly longer to dissolve the adhesives from the hair. This could take quite a long time to finish the process in some cases.

Hair Conditioner

Looking for a more accessible tape-in hair extension remover alternative? I proudly present to you - a hair conditioner. How? You can use a hair conditioner just like how you do an oil remover.

Conditioners should be applied and massaged into tapes to help remove the adhesive. We all know that hair conditioners do wonders, such as moisturizing and keeping your hair soft, which you'll benefit from once you use it as a remover.

Be prepared since this alternative takes a longer process than using oils. Simply put an ample size of conditioner on the adhesive tapes with your fingers. Allow it to sit for the next 20 to 30 minutes before rinsing the hair and gently removing the extension. Repeat the process until the desired result is achieved.


How to remove tape-in hair extension with the help of acetone?

Along with its advantages, acetone is frequently used as a tape-in hair extension remover by individuals who don't have enough time to set an appointment at the beauty salon. Because acetone can be drying to the skin, it is recommended that you wear gloves when handling it.

Start applying acetone straight to the tapes and allow them to dry for a few minutes. The remover would penetrate into the sticky portions of your hair extension and natural hair and start breaking the bond between it and the rest of your hair.

After that, you will be able to remove the tape-ins from your natural hair. Wash your hair once more to ensure that all acetone and the adhesion residues have been removed. Given that acetone contains a high amount of chemicals, you must only use it on the afflicted sections in order to prevent hair damage.

Heat Pliers

Many other tape-in hair extension removers are available to help dissolve the glue, but most are not very effective. The quickest and most straightforward method of removing tapes from hair extensions is to use heat pliers instead of a remover. Allow me to walk you through the process of removing your tape-ins:

Determine the area of your tape-ins. Defining the bonds between the tape-ins and your natural hair is essential. Carefully take heat pliers, and set them on the tape bonds to soften them up. The heat should aid in the progressive melting of the glue.

Continue doing it as much as you can until you can pull the tape apart from your natural hair without too much pressure. When using heat pliers, observe caution as they may cause burns to the scalp. It is vital to seek assistance from others.
