Easy to apply, easy to maintain, you don't feel them and they are the best out there. If you are new to extensions or wanting to switch from clips or individual extensions, tape in extensions will be the best choice for you. You will not regret getting the tape in hair extensions. Just get high quality tape extensions and have them applied by a trained professional - this will make your experience that much better with tape extensions.
5 reasons why tape in hair extensions are the best hair extension method:
Cost: Tape in hair extensions are the least expensive semi-permanent hair extension method available for both the cost of hair and the application. Why? Tape ins only take less than an hour to apply so that makes the application costs much lower. Also, due to the structure of the tape wefts and how the wefts are applied in the hair, the maintenance costs associated with tape in hair extensions are MUCH lower than any other semi permanent method. The cost of hair for tape in hair extensions are the exact same for a good set of clip in hair extensions and the hair for tape ins are much cheaper than the cost for fusion/micro bead/ i link hair extensions. The construction of tape extensions are 1 inch panels of hair, they are easier to make than the individual extensions. Overall, the cost of tape extensions for hair and a application are MUCH lower overall compared to any other hair extension method.
Low Maintenance: Tape in extensions are the easiest hair extension method to maintain due to their thin construction and 1.5 inch width. It is the easiest hair extension to maintain. Most actually forget that they are wearing tape in extensions because they are just that easy to maintain. You tape it and forget it, until about 10-12 weeks when its time to move them up. Note - if you get cheaper non remy tape extensions, you will regret this! They will not last long because tape extensions are worn daily and with low quality hair, they will not last. When it comes to tape extensions, you want to invest into a higher quality tape extension brand. Why? You will save more by spending more in the beginning on high quality tape extensions. How? The higher quality tape extensions will not shed, mat or tangle and they will be reusable. As long as you have a good quality tape in hair extension brand, the maintenance will be super easy and hassle free.
Least Damaging: Tape in extensions are the least damaging on the market. They are very lightweight and do not pull on your own hair like other extensions do - they grow out with your own hair and do not tug or pull. Clip in extensions are actually VERY heavy and will cause bald spots if you wear them every day. Note: if you have fine hair, traditional clip ins are not best for you! Individual extensions (fusion, micro, i-tip etc) can be more damaging and tend to tangle more, causing you to lose hair. Tape in hair extensions are non-damaging and very easy to remove. When it comes to hair loss you do NOT want to lose hair from wearing extensions. With tape in hair extensions you will not lose hair or experience any discomfort. This is the goal of hair extensions - damage free and comfortable!
Invisible and Flexible: There are so many things you can do with tape extensions that you cannot with clips: wear them in any type of hairstyle: braids, super high ponytails etc.
They are really thin and invisible! They are so flexible in your hair too - you cannot feel them when you brush over them or wash them. The best thing about tape in hair extensions compared to individual hair extensions is that when you wash and blow dry your hair they are MUCH more flexible and easier to dry and take care of. The individual extensions are stringy, tend to tangle, and the actual bonds are not as flexible and soft as tape extensions when it comes to washing and blow drying. If you want truly invisible and flexible extensions, tape in hair extensions are the best.
Reusable: Tape in extensions are reusable for up to a year, they are good for 3-4 applications. Being able to reuse your hair extensions is such a benefit, especially if you have had your extensions customized with a cut or color. Once you remove the tape
extensions you clean them, add new tape. and then re-apply them. That is why getting high quality tape extensions is most important. You want good hair and tape to last through the year, or else you will be removing your new tape extensions within a matter of 4 weeks. However, good quality tape extensions are reusable and this makes it worth trying. Individual extensions are not reusable and clip extensions tend to get worn out within a matter of 6 months (depending on your wear and use). Reusing extensions is worth it especially when you pay to have them cut colored etc. The removal of tape extensions takes only 15 minutes. Whereas the removal of individual extensions can be hours (with hair loss and hair pulling involved)!
As a beauty advisor & a makeup artist who specializes in reviewing makeup, I think I have probably tested hundreds of products over my 7+ years of working in beauty industry. Not to mention all of the years of simply wearing makeup and trial and error of finding what product works and what doesn't.
