Reasons To Choose Tape-in Hair Extensions

Tape in hair extensions is very easy for hair care professionals and cosmetologist to apply into their clients’ hair. Once you have been certified, you will easily be able to apply it to your clients’ hair and they will look completely natural.

2. Cost Effective

Tape-In hair extensions are the most cost-efficient way to get hair extensions. This gives people who can’t or doesn’t want to spend thousands of dollars on hair extensions a chance to have high-quality hair for less of the cost. Because the application is done in less than an hour, this allows the extensions to be much more affordable than any other method out there.

3. Less Damage

4. Have Long And Healthy Hair

This has long been an issue with many women—how to keep your hair looking healthy the longer that you grow it. For instance, with naturally long hair, the most common problems that you’ll possibly be getting are split ends and dryness. With tape-in extensions made from high-quality virgin remy hair, long and healthy hair is finally a reality.

5. Not Bulky

The biggest problem with most extensions is their bulkiness. Microbeads, clip-ins, sew-ins, and other options tend to have bulky hardware or attachments to keep the hair secure. The bulkiness can make it difficult to style the hair as well as it can stress the hair follicles and damaged hair shafts. When you apply tape in hair extensions, you don’t need to deal with the bulkiness that other extensions have.

6. Low Maintenance

Tape in extensions is 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. 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.

A huge benefit to using tape in extensions (particularly if you’ve had your extensions colored or cut to blend in with your natural hair) is the fact that you can reuse them. You want premium hair and tape to last throughout the year, or you may have to remove your new tape extensions in just four weeks. If you take care of your tape in extensions, they can be reusable for typically up to 10-12 months depending on the hair type chosen.

8. Flexible and Invisible

One of the best things about the tape in extensions compared to other types of extensions is that when you wash and dry them, they are easier to dry and much more flexible. Your hair immediately becomes more versatile with tape in hair extensions because there are so many new hairstyles you can now achieve, such as sleek ponytails, long braids, long beachy wavy hair and much more.
