after awhile of wearing my new tape in's, they started to dread up a lot, because I have mixed girl hair. African/ pacific islander. When I went to try and comb my dreads apart and get to my tape in's I had no luck, but as soon as I used the adhesive remover.. bam.. dreads just slid on down and were automatically combed through, tape in's slide out and had none of my real hair attached so no breakage. just an easy removal. spray a little more on the tape and bam! your tape slides right off, apply new tape and create your two wefts of hair. I keep my tape in's kinky curly by using lots of oil, helps them not dread or fall apart. would deff recommend the remover for your new tape in's.
