TAPE HAIR EXTENSIONS
Our tape hair extensions are made from the highest grade 100% AAAAA+ Remy human hair. They are double drawn and thick from to top to bottom. The tape is made in the USA and is extremely durable for long lasting extensions and the weft is seamless for an invisible finish.
Tape-in hair extensions
Tape in hair extensions are the most popular semi-permanent hair extensions. Tape hair extensions are lightweight, gentle on your natural hair and scalp and last 4-6 weeks before you need to re-tape them. You can re-tape your hair extensions several times using our tape hair extension remover to remove the tapes and then you can reapply them using our tape for hair extensions.
Each packet of tape hair extensions contains 20 pieces and weighs 50 grams. We recommend 3-4 packets of tape extensions for a full head, which is 150 to 200 gramsof hair.
Ombre and balayage tape hair extensions.
We have a large selection of ombre tape hair extensions and balayage tape hair extensions available in 20 inch and 24 inch lengths and in a range of colours including blonde and brown mixes.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Tape hair extensions have pre-taped wefts, we offer 2 lengths 20 inch and 24 inch. The wefts are composed of the highest-grade adhesive for secure and long-lasting results. As with all kinds of hair extensions, there are 3 types of hair to choose from. Synthetic hair and human hair are the more common options. However, the gold standard of hair extensions is still 100% Remy human hair. The cuticle, or outer cellular layer, remains intact and is indistinguishable from your natural hair, both in feeling and looks. Good-quality Remy human hair is comprised of the hair of a single person, further boosting its natural appearance. At Pure Hair Extensions all our extensions are made from Remy human hair.
In general, tape hair extensions ought to be re-applied every 4 to 8 weeks. There are several factors that can greatly reduce or extend the period you can wear your tape hair extensions before you should return to your hairstylist. If you have the right care regime in place for your hair extensions, you can enjoy your tape-ins longer before re-application is needed. Well-made 100% Remy human hair lasts longer than poorly created tape hair extensions or simply said, "quality lasts". Finally, if your natural hair grows fast, it goes without saying that you have to re-apply your tape-ins faster, otherwise a breach between your natural hair and the tape hair extensions become visible at some point. Bear in mind that well-maintained tape hair extensions could be re-applied professionally 2 more times to get the most out of it.
Before the tape-in hair extensions are applied, it is essential to thoroughly wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo for better adhesion. Dry your hair completely with a towel or hair blower before making your way to the hair salon. Despite a surplus of do-it-yourself guides online, we highly recommend you seek the assistance of an experienced hairstylist. The application process must be done with precision for a beautiful, natural look. The hair has to be evenly sectioned first for maximum coverage, volume, and invisible results. Your stylist will "sandwich" a section of your hair between two hair extensions. The clinical-grade adhesive is super strong and has to be applied immediately in the right position. Far enough from the scalp and exactly aligned with your natural hair is vital. An experienced professional will make sure that nobody will know that you are wearing hair extensions. Furthermore, you will not be able to feel tape-in hair extensions if applied correctly.
It's even more crucial to see a professional when removing and re-applying tape-in hair extensions. The adhesive substance must be dissolved fully with the right dissolving agent before commencing the removal process. Only then is it possible to gently remove the tape-ins without causing any damage to the hair. We have the Walker Tape C-22 Solvent available on the accessories page which is specifically designed for the remove of tape adhesive.
In contrast to permanent extensions where some hair damage is inevitable, tape-ins are close to harmless IF attached and removed in the appropriate way. Most of the stories about hair damage from tape hair extensions are do-it-yourself (or a friend) stories. Hence, once more we strongly advise you to seek the help of a professional. Your hair is simply too precious to experiment with. The goal is to look fabulous without taking the risk of damaging or breaking your hair.
If the tape does not slip out when solvent is in add a little more, don’t tug at the extensions! Pulling on the extensions will only strain your natural hair follicles.
Caring for tape-in hair extensions is just as fundamental as caring for your natural hair. Make sure to practice the most important pointers to keep the tape-ins in top condition. You can still use styling tools, including the hot ones, to create the style you prefer, just keep some distance between the heat and the bonds. At extreme heat, the adhesive of the bond can melt.
Its essential that you use a sulphate free shampoo and conditioner when washing your hair. We also recommend using a leave in conditioner which stops hair from getting dry and tangled.
Having a dry shampoo and shower cap can really help protect your hair from a water overload. Reducing the frequency of washing your hair as well as the temperature of your shower can help the longevity of the bonds.
Avoid normal hairbrushes, regular hairbrushes may tug on the bonds and pull through the knots rather than detangling. Using our looped hairbrush will reduce the pressure placed on the extensions when brushing your hair and won’t get caught in the bonds.
To reduce tangles from a night’s sleep, plaiting your hair is the best option this allows the hair and bonds to sit naturally.
Expect to pay $200 on the low-end up to $800 on the high-end. Why this huge difference you might ask? Remy human hair is the best and most beautiful option but is considerably more expensive than synthetic tape-in hair extensions. The other major factor is how many packets (20 pieces per packet) you need. You might need 4 packets of tape-in hair extensions for a full-head treatment, although you can also choose for partial solutions with fewer packets. With the proper care, applying, and removal techniques, you can re-apply high-quality tape-in hair extensions 2 more times for a maximum of 6 months in total. Oh, and don't forget to take the cost of your hairstylist into account.
Anyone who is looking for a semi-permanent hair extension solution. You must be willing to visit a professional hairstylist every 4 to 8 weeks, as tape-ins require maintenance to stay comfortable and flawless. To minimise the risk of any hair damage this is a commitment you have to make.
Of course, there is an advantage too. In-between the visits to the salon, you only need to take care of your tape-in hair extensions and enjoy your long, full, and natural-looking hair without losing any more time.
If the above doesn't seem work for you, we have other semi-permanent solutions such as mirco-loops and nail tips. Otherwise, our clip-in extensions are perfect for a different look every day, easily applied and removed by yourself daily.
