Tape-in hair extensions are a type of hair extension that use double-sided tape to attach the extensions to the natural hair. The extensions come in small, tapered wefts, which are applied to the natural hair by sandwiching a small section of hair between two wefts. The tape is then pressed down to secure the extension in place, creating a strong and seamless bond that can last up to 8 weeks with proper maintenance.
Tape-in hair extensions are a popular choice for their ease of application and removal, as well as their ability to blend seamlessly with the natural hair. They can be styled and cared for just like natural hair, and are a versatile option for those looking to add length, volume, or colour to their hair. The tape used in tape-in extensions is usually made of a medical-grade, heat-resistant adhesive that is gentle on the natural hair and scalp.
Tape-in extensions are also considered to be one of the least damaging types of hair extensions, as they do not require heat, glue, or sewing to be applied. They can be easily removed and re-applied, making them a convenient option for those looking for a temporary change to their hair.
The recommended weight of hair for tape hair extensions can vary based on the desired look and the thickness of the natural hair. Here is a general guide:
For a full head: (12 Inch)
- Fine hair: 30-60 grams
- Medium hair: 50-60 grams
- Thick hair: 70-100 grams
If you are only looking to add volume or length to specific areas, such as the crown or ends, you can use less hair. The length of the tape extensions and the desired end result will also play a role in determining the amount of hair needed.
To add volume to fine hair using 12" tape-in hair extensions, most stylists recommend using 20-50 grams of hair. This weight of hair is usually sufficient to create fullness and volume in fine hair without appearing too heavy or unnatural.
It's important to remember that the exact amount of hair needed will depend on the individual's natural hair length, thickness, and the desired end result. A professional stylist will be able to determine the right amount of hair for your specific needs. Additionally, using multiple wefts of tape-in extensions, rather than one large weft, can help to create a more natural and seamless look when adding volume to fine hair.
Dying Hair Extensions Disclaimer.
Results may vary with different brands and types of hair extensions and dyes. We cannot be held responsible for any issues that may occur during or after the dying/toning process as the reaction and application methods may vary. To ensure desired results, it is recommended to test the dye/toner on a small piece of hair before fully committing to the process.
Dying/toning can be a drastic change as the chemicals involved can negatively affect the texture, quality, and longevity of the extensions. The product may experience increased dryness, shedding, tangling, and breakage. Our hair extensions undergo a rigorous dying and bleaching process to achieve their stunning shades.
