Who doesn’t desire longer, fuller, more beautiful hair? It’s not so easy trying to attain healthy growth and length, and it can be frustrating dealing with unmanageable, thin hair. That’s why hair extensions have revolutionized the beauty industry and are more popular than ever. Tape-in hair extensions offer the most advantages and look amazingly natural. You’ll wonder why you waited so long to try them!
What Are Tape-In Hair Extensions?
There are several kinds of hair extensions, but nothing can beat a luxurious remy tape in. This type of hair extension is simple to install and remove and does not damage your hair, and Remy means that it is made of 100% real human hair. There is nothing synthetic about it.
This hair extension form is applied like a sandwich. In other words, your own hair is taped between two strips of hair extensions. They adhere to the hair’s root using medical-grade tape. Salon experts say that the hair isn’t going anywhere and will safely stay adhered to when applied.
What’s important is who you choose to install these gorgeous hair extensions. You cannot do it solo and should not have a friend install them. A salon professional is the only one with the skill and experience to properly place these hair extensions so that they are not visible to others, feel comfortable on your head and have the exact amount of hair between each tape-in, etc.
A salon pro can also give you the best haircut for blending the extensions and can choose the closest shade to match your natural hair color.
Advantages Of Tape-In Hair Extensions
There are multiple reasons that tape-ins are a favorite of many. For one thing, getting them installed or applied takes only about 30 to 45 minutes compared to other hair extension types that can take up to several hours to have put in.
Here’s another benefit of the tape-in style. The look is natural, and that’s a major plus. With this method and type, the hair extensions are extremely flat and lie almost completely flush against the head. The hair weft base is very thin. With other kinds of hair extensions, unfortunately, you can notice the thicker bases that stick out.
Also, if your hair is fine, these hair extensions are safe, damage-free and can create awesome volume. Even better, you don’t have to have an entire head full of hair extensions. Salon experts can customize the look for every individual, and you can still achieve lush fullness without an entire set.
Tape-ins are more economical because the installation time is quick, the hair extensions are reusable if you care properly for them, and you don’t have to be in a long-term commitment with them.
Tape-In Hair Care Maintenance
Many women today wonder how they could have survived without their favorite hair extensions before the 1990s when these beautiful hair “accessories” came into their power.
However, hair extensions go way back in time with humble beginnings. Cleopatra was believed to have worn a form of hair extensions around 3400 B.C.
Today, maintenance for this hair has just a few rules for best results. With tape-ins, you need to schedule a salon visit in about six to eight weeks so that your technician can remove, adjust or reinstall where needed as your natural hair grows.
Always use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners to nourish and protect your hair extensions. Learn to rely more on dry shampoo when wearing tape-ins. The less friction and water to hit your hair the better, recommend salon pros.
These hair extensions also need loving care from brushing, so invest in a good hairbrush that won’t tug at them.
When using hot hair tools, always spray a heat protectant formula on your mane, and be careful where you place a flat iron, for example. If you’re touching the tape with the hot tool, you could be weakening the glue bond holding them on.
If you’re ready for a change, go to your salon stylist for correct, tape-in removal. Don’t risk damaging your natural hair.
