How do tape extensions work? 

Tape extensions are the most natural-looking hair extension method and are the most popular Hair Extensions London technique because they take a lot less time to fit than individual micro-rings or bonds.

Clean sections of natural hair are sandwiched between two pieces of tape hair, spaced out in a special section pattern around the head – no heat, glue or rings required.

With Louise’s expert hair extension application and positioning, the client is still able to tie her hair up without showing the tapes. Tape hair extensions lay very flat and virtually disappear into the natural hair hence the reason they’re known as the ‘invisible’ hair extension method.

Do tape hair extensions damage your hair?

The tape hair extension method is a very skilled process and requires an expert to apply them. Tape-in extensions are the safest extensions you can get and won’t cause any damage to your own hair as long as you take care of them and brush gently at your root. Tape hair extensions can even help with hair growth.

However, when applied incorrectly, tapes can be very damaging to the natural hair. Without a specialist applying tape hair extensions, the tapes can be visible and not allow your hair to be flexible with other styles or your natural hair to grow. If tape-in hair extensions are not attached to the correct amount of hair, they can cause traction alopecia.

A good set of tape extensions do not damage your natural hair but this depends on who is applying them, the hair extensions brand, and the type of tape used.

There are many cheap hair extensions on the market that initially damaged the reputation of tapes when they first came out. If you choose a reputable salon, brand and specialist, tape hair extensions will not cause any damage to your natural hair. 

It is a myth that you lose length on a re-tape – this only occurs when an inexperienced technician reapplies them.
