Tape extensions are also called skin weft and simply tape. They are popular for their ease of application and seamless blending with your hair.
A single or double sided polyurethane tape is used to apply them. You need to remove the backing of the double sided tape to apply the weft to your hair. You need to sandwich another strand of hair with the other side of the tape after pulling your hair upwards.
Owing to the clarity of the tape adhesive the chances of somebody discovering your tape attachments is almost minimal. The tape holds strongly till you remove it with the Tape-In Bond Remover.
You can apply the tape hair extension much more quickly (just about 30 minutes) as the wefts come “pre-taped” (thus requiring no tools or heat). Owing to minimum physical labor and reduced time for application, they are cheaper as compared to some other types of hair extensions and perfect for “on the go women”.
You would need around 20 sandwiches or 40 individual pieces of tape in hair extensions for an average sized head.
