WHAT ARE TAPE IN EXTENSIONS?
Tape-ins are a form of hair extensions that are made of natural hair that actually get taped into your existing hair. Sounds scary, right? Well – it’s not! Think of a clip-in extension – it’s about 1-2 inches wide with double sided keratin tape. They are applied by placing one piece on a section of you natural hair. From there, we’ll pull the strand up, exposing the sticky side, and will place the second piece, to create a sandwich with your natural hair. Typically, the average head will use about 100 grams of hair – which is approximately 20 “sandwiches” – or 40 separate pieces of tape-in. These pieces are placed roughly in the same places that clip-in hair extensions would go. After they’re placed — Ta-Da! You’ve got yourself some beautiful tape-in extensions!
The Pros of Tape-In Hair Extensions
You’ll have long and thick hair, obviously! You may also decide if having this long hair is something you’ll want to aspire to after you get them removed. Tape-in hair extensions are made with real hair, so you won’t have to worry about damaging them with heat at all. Overall, you’ll be happy for your long hair.
