Here we have brought together some of the most frequently asked questions and answers. If you have a question that isn’t answered, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Tape-in extensions are the most popular hair extension trend on the market. Tape-in hair extensions are thin tape wefts, 4cm wide weft of hair secured at the top with a sticky tab, that get “taped-in” in between your own hair in “sandwich” like bonds. It is the most requested hair extension method in salons worldwide. This method is 100% natural, requires no tools or chemicals, lasts up from 4 to six months and the hair is reusable! It takes less than an hour to apply an entire head with zero damage.

This hair has to be healthy human hair and it can’t be damaged. We have only one hair source: local human hair, which is collected from healthy women, especially mountainous women. Due to the healthy lifestyles of Vietnamese women, the hair is highly strong, silky, with no tangles or shedding, and extremely durable. After it has been collected, by bunching the hair, the cuticles of the hair are kept in line during the cutting process, reducing the chances of matting and tangling. Then, it will transfer to a modern production process to create the perfect hair and have to pass the strict test in an impeccable quality control system before shipment. This is the unrivaled strength of Vietnamese hair, which no other supplier can match.

If you have thin hair, tape-in extensions are one of the best hair extension choices for you besides weave hair, and nano hair extensions. Clips will be too bulky and may cause balding long-term on those who have super fine hair. With tape-ins your hair is protected from damage and breakage. If you have thin/fine hair, your hairstylist should use the single-sided tape method for your tape in the application. The single-sided method is applying one tape bond and one piece of single-sided tape, forming one bond, instead of applying two tape wefts together. This places less weight on your hair and allows you to enjoy extensions without the risk of damage.
In AZ, tape-in hair extensions can typically be left in your hair for four to six months. Using your extensions for an extended period of time may cause them to break and frizz, making them appear unnatural next to your hair, so after 4 to 6 months, you should replace them with a new set.
The longevity of your hair extensions is determined by your lifestyle and maintenance techniques. While paying close attention to your extensions can help them last longer, failing to properly wash and handle them can result in the need for a new set sooner.
If properly installed and maintained, this method will not damage your hair. It is 100% natural and there are no chemicals or tools used. Please work with a trained professional experienced in tape-in application to ensure that the product will work properly with zero damage.
Yes, you can wash your hair and get blowouts without ruining your seamless extensions. Our strong tape is extremely durable and lasts, as long as the scalp does not become excessively oily the bonds will stay. However, always wash your hair properly by dampening small sections of hair rather than wetting your entire head at once, which can cause tangles, and work through any tangles that do appear slowly to avoid pulling out your extensions. While most extensions can withstand heat styling, keep the tape bond strong by using low heat and avoiding tugging on your hair. Our tape-in allows you to wear your hair up or down without showing the tape and, due to the strength of the bond, can even be worn while exercising or swimming, and not have to worry about your extensions coming out.

Tape-in hair extensions are among the most affordable types of hair extensions, in addition to their ease of installation and removal. Tape-ins brought the average time for getting extensions down from several hours to as little as 30 to 90 minutes.
Tape-in hair extensions can be removed and reinstalled several times before the set needs to be replaced. Clients usually reinstall their extensions if they want to keep their hair at a certain length or if they notice the extensions coming loose, which can happen after extended use or daily wear and tear. Tape-in hair extensions have a stronger bond if they are placed close to the scalp, which gives them extra support. Never attempt to remove your hair extensions on your own. This could cause your extensions to be damaged and cause you to rip out pieces of your natural hair.
When removing and reinstalling tape in hair extensions, your stylist will wet the adhesive with a few drops of a liquid remover. The extensions can then be gently removed from the hair, which should then be washed, conditioned, and dried to remove any adhesive removing liquid that may have remained. Your stylist will simply place new tape on either side of your natural hair and attach the extensions to reinstall the extensions.
For semi-permanent methods (tape-ins and wefts) you can sleep with your extensions in. For ready-to-wear extension methods (clips, halos, etc) we absolutely do not recommend you sleep with your extensions in. Sleeping with ready-to-wear hair extensions can damage your own hair, and it can cause the hair extensions to not last as long.
Regardless of the method, we recommend brushing your hair daily and proper storage to ensure they keep their original quality. See our hair extension after-care guide for more information.
Remy human hair tape-in extensions offer the same styling versatility as other extensions, allowing you to curl, straighten, and even darken the extensions. While hot styling tools can be used with tape-ins, it’s best to avoid applying heat near the roots or bonds because it will melt or break down the adhesive.
It’s also advised to keep the roots and bonds as dry as possible, which means avoiding washing these areas and investing in a good dry shampoo for no-wash days.
- Conditioners and oil-based products are also bad for tape-ins because they interfere with the stickiness of the adhesive, especially if the tape-ins have been worn for a few weeks. When using these products, the extensions may slip or come loose, so look for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners when washing your hair with tape-ins.
- Avoiding friction with the bonds is also important for keeping the tape-ins in place. Because tape-in extensions, unlike clip-in extensions, cannot be removed and stored at the end of the day, professionals recommend loosely clipping up the hair or putting it in a loose braid before bed.
- Brushing the tape-in extensions on a regular basis is also advised. Use a Loop Hair Extensions Brush or another hairbrush designed for hair extensions to ensure that it glides through the natural hair and extensions smoothly and without tugging. Avoid brushing from the root or bond, and avoid brushing wet hair because it is more vulnerable and prone to breakage.
