LIFESPAN OF TAPE IN HAIR EXTENSIONS
Tape in hair extensions is considered as a semi-permanent type. HHEO Tape-ins can last you up to 24 months with proper care and maintenance. However, this method will require retaping every 6 to 8 weeks, or depending on how fast your natural hair grows as the tapes will move further away from your roots.
Although some girls go for DIY installation (probably they are already pros or a hairdresser by profession), we highly recommend getting a professional hairdresser to do the installation. It requires some added steps that are best done by professionals.
The way it’s done, the back strip of the adhesive is removed (similar to how you peel off your stickers). A thin section of your hair goes in between extensions, basically sandwiching it between tape extensions. Your hair must be sectioned adequately. This is the reason why professional hairdressers are necessary for installing tape-ins.
Installing the hair extensions too close to the scalp can make removal difficult later on, which can also damage your hair if not correctly done, and the more likely it is to tangle with your hair. Professional hairdressers always leave enough room between your scalp and the adhesive part of the tape extensions.
The application process may take 45 minutes or more, depending on how thick you want your hair. Also, to ensure that your extensions blend perfectly with your hair, get professional help in colour matching when shopping for tape-ins.
TAPE-IN EXTENSIONS REMOVAL
Tape in removal requires professional help. Do not attempt to DIY this process. A special adhesive remover spray or solution is used to break down the sticky part of the tape, so it’s easier for the hairdresser to remove and ensure that there are no residues left on the hair.
