What are tape-in hair extensions: Tape-in hair extensions come in wefts each about 1.5inch wide. They are pre bonded with special tape adhesive made to adhere to your hair. The protective strip is pulled off and placed on a thin strip of your natural hair then another weft is placed on top to make a sandwich. The tape-in's last around 3-6 weeks depending on how well the extensions were applied. Your hair will grow normally with the tape-in's, as the hair grows out you will need to have your tape-in's adjusted. To remove the tape-in's you will need tape in bond remover and then new tape-in bonds can be reapplied to the weft and placed back into your hair.
I ordered my extensions from a shop on etsy HairCouturebyHamo. Shop owner Melissa, helped me pick out the color that was the closest match to my hair. I will say that it is hard to order your extensions online, I sent her a picture of my hair to try to match up the extensions. The extensions are a little lighter then I had expected but I wasn't to worried about it. I just lightened my natural hair a little bit. These extensions are 5 star Remy Human Hair Extensions..if you would like to know more about them click on this link to Melissa's shop..https://www.etsy.com/shop/HairCouturebyHamo.
