Tape-In Hair 101
The Ultimate Guide
We've answered all your questions and concerns about the tape in hair extensions.
Tape-ins are known for being one of the least damaging techniques. This is due to their lightweight design, which does not put stress on the natural hair like some other types of extensions do. They are applied using a special tape adhesive that is gentle on the hair and scalp, and they grow out with your own hair, so there is no tugging or pulling. This makes them a great option for those who want to add length or volume to their hair without causing damage. Unlike other types of extensions, such as clip-ins, which can be heavy and cause bald spots if worn daily, tape-ins are designed to be worn comfortably and safely on a daily basis.
Quick Tip: Remember to consult with a professional stylist regarding the use of any professional hair extensions that require sewing or bonding.
Each installation can last from 6 to 8 weeks to accommodate before you'll need to get them adjusted to accomodate for new hair growth. You'll just need to visit your hairdresser to get them removed and reinstalled using an adhesive remover and replacement tape. You'll need to use a proper clarifying shampoo to prep your hair, and other sulfate-free products to promote longevity and good hair health. The total lifespan of Perfect Locks' Tape-Ins can be anywhere from 9 to 12 months with proper installation, care, and maintanance. The ultimate longevity is dependent on the quality of hair used, which is why we only use the best quality 100% Remy human hair for our tape-ins at Perfect Locks.
Tape-in hair extensions are a quick and easy way to achieve your desired look in no time! These extensions are applied by sandwiching pre-taped wefts that are placed close to the scalp. The wefts are applied by layering your natural hair over the weft and pressing the tape firmly to secure it in place. This process is repeated until you have the desired amount of extensions applied, seamlessly blending with your natural hair for an undetectable look. It's a quick process, taking around one to two hours and you'll be ready to rock your new look! Consult with your professional stylist for more information.
If you have healthy, non-damaged hair, tape-in hair extensions will work well. Tape-ins can add volume and thickness to thin or fine hair and length without making your hair heavy if you have thick hair. They work well on all hair textures--straight, wavy, or curly--but it is important to choose high-quality Remy tape-ins to avoid tangles and keep them looking good for a long time!
If you have thicker hair, it's recommended to use the traditional method of sandwiching two tape-in wefts around natural hair, to create a durable, yet undetectable bond.
Guests with thinner hair can use a single weft, which will create natural density without putting unecessary stress on your existing hair.
We include 10 individual weft pieces in each pack, a total of 5 sandwiches. How many packs you need to purchase depends on your hair type and the look you want to achieve.
If you have short hair and want a full head of extensions, a minimum of four to six packs are recommended.
For medium-length hair, 3 to 4 packs should be enough for a subtle yet voluminous look.
For long hair, four to 6 packs or more may be needed to achieve maximum coverage.
Whether you are searching for extra length or thickness, purchasing just the right number of tape-in hair extensions can make all the difference!
If you're still unsure, we always recommend to purchase more hair than you anticipate... You want to make sure you have enough hair for your installation. Whatever you don't use you can return to us or save for next time.
