Tape Extensions: Everything you need to know

tape hair extensions near me hair rehab london lauren pope

Tape extensions are a popular choice for those looking to enhance their hair with added length, volume, and even colour. If you’re considering tape extensions, this guide will cover everything you need to know, from application to maintenance, and answer common questions to help you make an informed decision. 

hair rehab london regular normal tape hair extensions

What Are Tape Extensions?

Tape hair extensions, also known as tape in hair extensions, are a type of semi-permanent hair extension that uses medical-grade adhesive tape to attach to your natural hair. They are available in various lengths, colours, and textures, including real human hair extensions, which blend seamlessly with your natural hair.

 

hair rehab london invisible tape hair extensions

What is the difference between normal tapes and invisible tape extensions?

Hair Rehab London offers two types of Tape extensions: Regular and Invisible.

Hair Rehab Regular Tape Hair Extensions have a scallop shaped PU strip (see image above) to ensure tapes can be contoured to your head for a comfortable fit.

Hair Rehab Invisible Tape Hair Extensions are a newer innovation in the world of hair extensions and feature a thinner depth of weft that mimics hair growing from the scalp, making them virtually undetectable, even when your hair is pulled back or styled up. The invisible tape allows for a more seamless blend with your natural hair, making the extensions look and feel even more natural. They are an excellent choice for those looking to achieve a flawless, discreet look.

Why Choose Tape Extensions?

  1. Natural Look: Tape extensions provide a natural look and feel, especially when using human hair extensions. They lie flat against your head and are virtually undetectable.
  2. Easy to Apply: The application process is straightforward and less time-consuming compared to other methods.
  3. Reusable: With proper care, tape in extensions can be reused multiple times, making them a cost-effective option.

How Do Tape Hair Extensions Work?

Tape extensions consist of small wefts of hair that are pre-taped with adhesive on one side. During the application process, a hairstylist sandwiches small sections of your natural hair between two wefts of tape extensions, creating a secure bond. This method ensures that the extensions stay in place and look natural.

Adhesive Tape for Tape Hair Extensions

The adhesive tape used for tape hair extensions is a crucial component. It's designed to be strong enough to hold the extensions securely, yet gentle enough not to damage your natural hair. High-quality adhesive tapes can last up to 8-12 weeks before needing to be replaced. Our favourite Adhesive Tape for retaping extensions is Beautify by Walker Tape. When deciding on the best hair extension tape to stock, Beautify ticked all the boxes for us; long-lasting, secure, easy to remove and minimal residue left after removal. Combined with our delicious smelling tape remover spray, refits are an absolute breeze.

Hair Washing Tape Hair Extensions

hair rehab london shampoo and conditioner treatment for hair extensions sulphate free

Washing your tape hair extensions requires some special care to ensure their longevity and maintain their appearance:

  • Use Sulfate-Free Shampoo: Opt for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners to prevent the adhesive from breaking down.
  • Gentle Washing: Wash your hair gently, avoiding vigorous scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly to remove all product residue.
  • Avoid Heat: When drying, use a low heat setting or let your hair air dry to protect the adhesive tape.

Tape Hair Extensions Frequently asked Questions

Are Tape Hair Extensions Bad for You?

Tape hair extensions are generally safe when applied and cared for correctly. However, improper application or removal can lead to damage. It’s essential to have them applied by a professional to avoid potential issues such as hair breakage or traction alopecia. Take a look at our ‘Salon Finder’ to find the nearest salon to you that stock Hair Rehab London extensions.

Are Tape Hair Extensions Damaging?

When applied and maintained properly, tape extensions should not cause damage to your natural hair. Always follow your stylist’s advice on caring for your extensions to minimise any risk of damage. Tape in hair extensions work well for all hair types but do have their limitations. They are ideal for thin hair as they lie flat, giving you a seamless, natural appearance. But if you have naturally oily hair, the oils from your scalp may cause the tapes to slip. They are also not recommended for people that swim regularly.  Talk to an expert before you decide what to go for, they’ll be able to advise you properly and you’ll get the best results.

Can Tape In Extensions Cause Hair Loss?

Tape in extensions, if too heavy or incorrectly applied, can cause tension on your natural hair, leading to hair loss. Ensure that your extensions are not too heavy for your natural hair and that they are applied correctly to avoid this issue. Don't be afraid to ask to see your extensionists qualifications or credentials or reviews from other customers, a good extensionist will be more than happy to oblige!

How Many Tape Hair Extensions for a Full Head?

The number of tape hair extensions needed for a full head varies depending on the desired volume and length. On average, 40-60 pieces / 20-30 sandwiches / 4 to 6 packs of Hair Rehab Tape Extensions are required for a full head (many of our customers use 1-2 packs if applying tape extensions as side fillers). We advise that you talk to your hair extensions specialist before choosing your extensions - they’ll be able to tell you how much hair you need to achieve the results you’re looking for, taking into account your own natural hair type. 

What Tape Extensions Are Best?

The best tape extensions are made from 100% Remy human hair. Remy hair extensions align the cuticles in the same direction, reducing tangling and ensuring a natural look. Consider options like blonde hair extensions or balayage shades that match your natural hair.

Where to Place Hair Extensions?

Placement is key to achieving a natural look with tape extensions. Extensions should be placed in a brick-lay pattern, starting from the nape of your neck and working upwards, ensuring even distribution and blending with your natural hair.

TOP TIP: One of our favourite tips is to apply side fillers at a slight angle to enable the hair to be pulled into a ponytail without creasing the tape extensions.

Hair Extensions Near Me

Finding a reputable salon that offers tape hair extensions is crucial. Look for salons with experienced stylists who specialise in tape in extensions. A simple search for “hair extensions near me” can help you locate nearby professionals, alternatively take a look at our ‘Salon Finder’ to find the nearest salon to you that stock Hair Rehab London extensions.
