lots of talk about tape hair extensions with lots of girls wondering
about this option for their own hair, so we thought we’d give you all a
little heads up of what they’re about and why clip in hair extensions
are SO much better for your hair.
to begin with, you might be thinking tape? TAPE!? What kind of tape?
….Well, apparently, it’s a ‘special’ kind of type that keeps your hair
intact for up to 10 weeks. With its super strong hold that the tape is
known for we are probably quite right in thinking that most people are a
little apprehensive when first hearing about the method. And we can
totally see why!!
your hair to tape that mimics sellotape seems pretty ludicrous when you
first hear it, but women across the world are already pursuing the
method and putting their hair through hell in the process. So, before
the whole world goes tape hair extension crazy, we thought we’d give you
some vital information so you can decide for yourselves.
application of tape hair extensions is pretty simple; you section your
hair into a thin straight line, remove the backing tape seal and place
it under a small section of your natural hair, as close to the scalp as
possible. It is advised to use as little hair as possible as the
sticking strength of the tape will be much higher, the more hair you
stick it to, the less likely it is to hold. You then need to smooth your
hair onto the tape using the end of a tail comb; then you will need to
take another piece of tape hair, remove the seal and press it directly
on top of the previous piece. So the thin section of your natural hair
is pretty much ‘sandwiched’ between the two pieces of tape hair
extensions. It is then recommended to leave your hair unwashed for at
least 3 days so the taped hair has enough time to set.
I don’t know about you guys, but we’re certainly not seeing how tape
hair extensions can be kind to your natural hair? Even though most of
your natural hair is being covered by hair extensions you still need to
think about and treat your natural hair as best as you possibly can.
the whole thought of sticking fine pieces of hair to the tape and then
having to remove them that we aren't fans of; just imagine the breakage
of your hair ladies! Even when sticking them onto the tape at first, the
hair could easily break if you had to re-position or start with a new
tape. We just don’t see the logic! When removing the tape hair
extensions it is advised to use solution and to ensure that your aren't
pulling too hard at the tape. Removing the hair extensions with solution
may take a little effort and time, however, it is the safest way
possible to remove them so if you are using tape hair extensions be sure
to remove them with plenty of solution to increase the chances of your
hair coming away less damaged.
also need to think of when the extensions are fitted, you aren’t able
to take them out willy nilly. Once they are in, they’re in for a couple
of weeks. This means washing your normal hair as well as your hair
extensions, which is time consuming in itself and also decreases the
lifespan of hair extensions when you have to wash them as frequently as
your natural hair. All the hassle just isn’t worth the end results, and
potentially ruining your natural hair is not worth it at all.
is why we think clip in hair extensions are definitely the ones to go
for. They are easily fitted, easily taken out, you can pick and choose
when you want to wear them, you can wear them up or down with ease,
style them to your heart’s content, and wash your own hair freely: all
whilst keeping your hair extensions in tip top condition! Whoop!
in hair extensions are no more damaging to your natural hair than tying
it into a tight ponytail so if you’re a little uneasy at the thought of
clipping extensions onto your natural hair then fear not, if you
backcomb and add a little hairspray to where you’re about to clip this
will give your hair a little extra support so all should be well my
you are able to have long, luscious, thick hair which isn't really damaging
your own natural hair in the mean time...Need I say anymore?!
Pop over to HeadKandy for all the different shades available and to get yourself some super thick clip in hair extensions.
[ Posted byKathy, April 07, 2013 15:26 ] I actually know of someone who has tape hair extensions and she loves them! She has extremely thin, fine hair, and it's brittle from bleaching. She's growing her hair after fusion extensions left her with bald patches. She said her tape extensions don't damage her hair, and moving them up after they've grown out a bit is easily done and it doesn't pull her hair out. And she's had them for months so far and her extensions are still gorgeous. The extensions are supposed to last 2 years, and they're so shiny and healthy still. That being said, her application at the salon was $700.
I'll stick to Headkandy for now! Well...when I can afford some :)
[ Posted byadmin, April 16, 2013 2:26 ] Wow $700 is expensive, plus the upkeep. Of course we agree.. stay with HeadKandys for now ;)
[ Posted byStacy, May 07, 2013 11:09 ] I wish you guys offered a tape in version. As a person who has used many different types of extensions, it is good to have options other than clips. I would definitely buy from headkandy again if tape in were an option. :)
