5 Reasons to Choose Invisible Tape Hair Extensions (Skin Wefts)
The hair extensions sector has changed beauty and fashion in all the right ways. Extensions are now available in an array of types, colours and styles, ensuring you find the perfect match.
Of the many types of hair extensions available today, tape extensions are something many women swear by. This specific type of hair extension has a distinct edge when compared to other types.
If you’re new to hair extensions and aren’t sure whether invisible tape extensions are right for you, here’s what you need to know.
Why Choose Invisible Tape Hair Extensions
1. Natural Look and Feel
Tape hair extensions made with real human hair are carefully constructed to look and feel natural. High-end hair extensions go through very specific processes to ensure that they blend in seamlessly with your natural locks, this includes getting the best colour match possible. You can also style your extensions as you would your natural hair.
2. Quick and Easy Fittings
If you will be applying a full head of hair extensions, it won’t take your stylist longer than an hour. Application is quick, easy and hassle-free. Simply arrive at your appointment with clean, straight hair – make sure you don’t apply any conditioner to your roots.
3. Safe for All Hair Types
One of the most talked-about benefits of invisible tape hair extensions is that they’re lightweight. This means even those with very fine hair will be able to wear them. The extensions can be worn for up to 8 weeks, where after, you can remove them with a gel-based remover, which is also non-damaging.
If you don’t end up changing your hair colour, you can reuse your tape hair extensions again. After 6 – 8 weeks, the extensions will have moved down slightly due to hair regrowth. This means your stylist will need to move them up and reapply them if you want to continue using your extensions. Hair extensions really are an investment.
5. Easy to Maintain
Once your tape hair extensions have been applied, they’re very easy to care for at home. You will need to be gentler when washing, drying and styling your hair. You will also need to choose your hair products more carefully but other than that, extensions are easy to maintain.
Tape Hair Extension 101
During the installation, a thin piece of hair is placed between two pieces of tape, which attaches the hair extension to your natural hair. How many extensions are required will depend on how long and thick you want your hair to be. It’s highly recommended that you have your extensions applied by a professional, this includes the reapplication. A professional salon as all the right tools and knowledge necessary to ensure your extensions look natural.
If you purchase Remy human hair extensions, you can expect them to last up to 2 years if you care for them correctly. This means using the right products and handling them correctly. Synthetic hair extensions might be more affordable but they won’t last as long or look as natural as Remy extensions.
Choosing the right colour hair extensions can be tricky, which is why it’s best to get a professional opinion. Many people make the mistake of choosing hair extensions that match their root colour – this is incorrect. You should always choose extensions that match the mid to end colour of your natural hair.
If you want light, natural-looking hair extensions that are easy to maintain and can be reused, invisible tape hair extensions are one of the better choices.
