But poor quality replacement tapes can make you look and feel equally terrible and turn your investment in hair extension to a total wastage. It can damage your own hair, the hair extensions, and can make slippage, shedding of the hair extensions or make it difficult to remove. So, it is important to shop the replacement tapes wisely to get the most of your pricey hair extensions. Here, in this list, we have discussed in detail how to shop for replacement tapes, how to apply and remove the tapes and how to take care of hair extensions. Read ahead and you will get the idea about what to look for while choosing a replacement tape. One installment of tape-in extensions using Babe tape lasts up to 3 to 4 months. You will never experience slippage unless you put some oily products like hair oil or oil containing hair conditioner.

Some years old user of this tape has suggested using coconut oil to remove these. Coconut oil works better than any remover as the tapes are super strong! This pack is the most affordable one I have ever used. It contains 10 sheets of tapes and each sheet contains 12 tabs. All the tapes are 4 x .8 cm size, so you wo not have any problem with the size no matter which brand extension you are wearing. Usually, we reapply our tape in extension every 4 to 6 weeks. These tapes have an expiration time of that duration. As the pack includes 120 tapes, they are cost-effective as well. Because no one requires extensions of more than 60 pieces. So, you can use one pack for two sessions at least. The problem with some affordable yet strong tapes is, they are gooey and too sticky to make them secure. Some tapes from cheap brands also mess the extensions with the gooeyness and seepage. This extensions tape from perfect locks are strong, but not gooey. So, you wo not have to deal with unwanted mess and seepage from sticky glue. The tapes are a bit shiny. To achieve a natural look, matt tapes are the best. But good quality matt tapes are good at emptying your wallet. To avoid that, this extension is a better choice. Laavoo is a popular brand especially for their amazing quality of the different type of extensions. Their tapes are less popular but as good as the extensions. After trying once, you may never want to return to your previous tape brand anymore. This pack is the smallest in the market and contains only 10 pieces of tapes per pack. The advantage of this pack is, you can try and test the quality of these extensions. If it seems satisfactory, you can always order these inexpensive tapes in big bundles. Pro Flex makes the most durable kind of tape tabs for tape in hair extensions. Though the maker warns not to touch the tape with oil or excessive heat, the tapes can resist both very well. Ladies who style their hair on a daily basis can relate that, no matter how much you remain careful, hair products accidentally falls on the roots that are not supposed to use on the roots. These extension tabs will easily hold up to 6 weeks even after such incidents. This pack is cost-effective because one pack has 120 tabs. The size of the tabs is the most used size in the market. These are easy to peel from the pack, easy to apply and with proper remover, easy to remove as well. Tape in extension is the most long lasting and best at looking seamless and natural. But everyone is not a big fan of tape in extensions for the hassle of their maintenance. For those women, who wear these extensions for a short time, this brand has brought 2 types of tapes. One is regular and another one is extra strong. Needless to say, the extra strong tapes will give you longer and stronger hold. Whereas the regular one stays put up to 5 weeks in general. I liked the idea of launching different types of tapes for different target groups. While most brands claim to make the best and strongest tapes for hair extensions. Things to Consider During Replacement Tape Shopping Replacement tapes have various types and each type serves different purposes. Here, I would like to enlighten you about all of the types of replacement tapes available in the market and let you know which one is yours. Basically, the single-sided tapes are used during the first installation of tape-in extensions. It makes the bond more secure and long-lasting. The double-sided tapes are used to reapply the wefts when the wefts lose its adhesive after washing. Try not to use a single sided tape as a replacement tape. That may result in an insecure and poor bond, which may shed quickly. Some manufacturers market replacement tape in two varieties namely regular and stronghold. Simply, the strong one is for someone who wants the bond to be more secure and lasts for months. However, women with faster hair growth need to understand that, no matter how strong the replacement tape is, you need to reapply the wefts within 4 to 6 weeks. Your hair will overgrow at that time and the wefts will hang 2 to 3 centimeters beneath the hair roots. Besides, for beginners, it is better to go for the regular hold for the first time. These are easier to remove. You can take the wefts off easily if you realize that, tape in extensions are not just your thing. Though, after applying a flat iron on the tape in bonds, the tapes become seamless, it is best to choose the matt finished tapes. The makers will never disclose that their tapes are shiny or not, you have to look for the reviews to know about it. Shiny tapes are as good as matt tapes to hold wefts in place, but come cheaper. If you are already comfortable with your hair extensions, and you know which tapes are best for you, then it is wiser to buy tapes in bulk. For first time tape in extension users should purchase tapes with 60 to 120 tabs. This way, you can try for different brands every time you reapply the wefts. Later, you can stick to the 'one' tape which suits you. Coconut oil is a universal replacement tape remover. But if the tape you age buying is a stronghold tape, and is recommended to remove with a particular remover, then it is best to use that instead of oil. In that case, purchase the tape and remover in the same batch so that the remover stays at your reach. This way, you can remove the wefts by yourself whenever you need to. Things to Take Care of while Applying Replacement Tapes The best place to get the tape in extension installed is the saloon, by a professional. But visiting saloon once a month can make you bankrupt. To avoid that situation, a lot of tape in extension users get their extension set up with the help of their friends. Removing the wefts is the easy part, everyone does that by themselves. Here are some tips if you choose to get the installation done at home, by an unprofessional. Apply on the Right Places There are tutorials on YouTube about how to install tape in extensions. I find those quite helpful to DIY tape in extensions. If the tutorial misses the important tip, let me inform you that, at least 1 cm gap must be maintained between the hair root and the extensions. Otherwise, if it is placed too close to the roots, it will feel tight and uncomfortable. In contrary, if the extensions are too far from the roots, it will need to be replaced sooner than expected. Make the application even. Apply the same amount of extensions at the back, front and sides of the head. The result will be more natural. Avoid applying extension on the outer layer of the hair locks. Rather, apply these underneath the top layer of your locks. The tapes should be hidden under the top layer. Same goes to the hairline closer to the neck and forehead. Otherwise, the attachments will be seen when you make a updo like top messy bun or ponytail. Tape in extension does not cope well with hair well. The oil works as a remover. On the other hand, the real human hair extensions require more nourishment as the hair do not get its nourishment from the roots. So, nourishing shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, etc made for extensions need to be applied on a regular basis. To protect the extensions and your own hair from over heating and over styling, heat protecting serum, and leave in conditioner should also be used. Otherwise, the hair will expire early. It depends on the rate of your hair growth. Generally, it takes 4 to 6 weeks to grow hair 3 to 4 centimeters. If the tape lasts that long, then it is time to reapply the tape. Before reapplying the same extensions, it needs to be removed and cleaned to wash off any residue from the remover or the previous adhesive. If possible, give your own hair some rest for a couple of days or more during that period. Apply nutritious oil and masks on your hair that you can not apply when the extension is on. Things Not to put on Replacement Tapes In a word, the hair care products that are not for tape in extensions, can not be applied on tape in extensions. Like any hair oil, or oil containing conditioners, leave in conditioners and so on. The problem is, oily substances may cause slippage the tape ins. Tape in extension is the most expensive kind of hair extensions. The replacement tapes are comparatively cheap. Good quality tapes can make your hair extensions last longer on your head and make the extensions have a longer life. Only a wise and cheap investment in tapes can save you from purchasing expensive tape in extensions more frequently.2.
