There are many different types of extensions that you can get right now. One option that is very popular today is the tape in hair extension. Did you know well about the tape in hair extensions? Let’s talk more about this interesting products.

Tape-in extensions are becoming some of the most popular hair extension methods in the beauty industry today. Tape-in extensions are perfect for adding length and volume to your hair, without the damage of other methods of semi-permanent extensions. Bombay Hair is made from 100% virgin remy hair, the highest quality hair you can find on the market. The extensions are designed to hide and blend seamlessly in your hair. Bombay Hair tape-ins, when professionally installed, will last you 2 to 3 months and the hair itself will last you 1-2 years with professional removal/re-installation.


What are tape-in hair extensions? 


Hair extensions are made of real human hair and are attached to existing hair to add length and fullness.There are several ways to attach hair extensions, and Tape-In is one of the newest methods. Stylists and clients love it because it’s easy and only takes about an hour to install. The attachment points of Tape-In extensions are seamless and won't damage hair. Tape-In extensions come in 18 inch and 22 inch lengths.

Tape-Ins come in wefts, each 1.5 inches wide. There are 10 of these wefts in every pack and each weft comes pre-bonded with a special adhesive designed for use with hair. A typical full head of Tape-In extensions is about 3 to 5 packs of hair.

How long do tape-in extensions last?

Tape-ins are considered semi-permanent extensions. Depending on how they’re cared for and how fast your natural hair grows, tape-in extensions can last around 4-8 weeks before needing to be changed or re-applied.


How to appply hair extensions properly? 


The stylist will pull off the strip on the tape-in Hair extensions and pressed the adhesive area onto the hair near the scalp. Then another hair extension weft is placed underneath the first hair weft, sandwiching the client’s hair in between the two wefts. This technique keeps the hair and hair extension in place, sealed in the protective adhesive strips. The adhesive is strong and safe for use in hair.



How Do I Care for Tape Hair Extensions?


Wig and weave tape does not wash out easily with normal shampoos and conditioners, so you can wash and style your hair as usual with a tape-in weave. Just be careful not to apply scalp oils too heavily or too often, as these do loosen the tape bond, and your tape hair extensions can last for up to two months, if cared for properly. However, it is recommended that you remove the tape and oil the scalp after a month, and then wait at least another month before applying any tape hair extensions again. You will need a pack or two of high quality replacement tape for the reinstall.This will restore the scalp and prevent hair loss from repeated taping and tape removal.


Like any other application method, tape hair extensions have their strengths and weaknesses, and overusing them can lead to hair damage. But as a seamless-looking, semi-permanent weaving method, tape hair extensions can be just the solution you’re looking for.
