1. How to remove tape extensions?
Just like when applying hair extensions, you should have a professional remove tape-in extensions. The hairdresser gently removes the tape-ins from your hair using a special tape remover and can also remove the tape extension adhesive. Afterwards, you have the option to have your tape-ins reattached and repositioned by the hairdresser. Since removing tape-in extensions is less complicated, you can also remove them yourself with the right tools and accessories.
2. When should tape-in extensions be removed?
In general, you should remove your tape extensions after 6-8 weeks. Usually, by that time, the root area becomes visible due to hair growth. If it becomes difficult to style your hair or brush it properly, it's time to remove your tape extensions. The exact timing depends on individual hair growth as well.
3. Can I remove my tape-in extensions myself?
Couldn't get an appointment with your favorite hairdresser to remove your tape extensions? If you want to remove your tape extensions yourself, it is generally possible. To ensure smooth removal of the hair extensions, you should know that tape-ins are attached to the hair using adhesive strips (tapes) using a method called the sandwich method. To remove your tape extensions, you need to detach these adhesive connections using a special tape remover. How to do it? Here are our hair2heart professional tips:
- Part your hair with the styling comb to make the adhesive connections visible.
- Apply some extension remover to each adhesive connection.
- Massage the remover in and let it sit for several minutes.
- Carefully separate the "sandwich adhesive connection" with the styling comb from top to bottom.
- Remove each hair strand from your natural hair to remove the tape extensions.
4. What is needed to remove tape-in extensions?
Not much equipment is needed to remove tape extensions. All you need are:
- hair2heart tape extension remover
- Styling comb
- Sectioning clips
- Mini hair clips
The extension remover softens the connection points between the natural hair and extension strands. After that, you can gently remove the tape extensions by pulling them out of your hair. Our extension remover can also remove residues of tape adhesive from the hair. If you want to reuse your human hair strands, you can degrease, clean, and then reapply adhesive to the extension tape after removing the extensions.
5. How to remove adhesive residue from tape-in extensions?
When removing tape-ins, it can happen that adhesive residue remains in the hair. If you want to remove these adhesive residues from your extensions, you should also use our remover and massage it into the roots and lengths of your hair.
You can also remove tape extension adhesive residue from the hair using the styling comb. Once you have finished removing all tape extensions, you should wash your hair thoroughly with Beautify Deep Cleansing Shampoo. This shampoo not only removes tape extension adhesive from your hair but also eliminates residues on the skin and scalp.
Through the hair wash, your natural hair is freed from any adhesive residues and perfectly prepared for a new hair extension.
6. Does wearing and removing tape-in extensions damage natural hair?
When real human hair extensions are professionally applied and removed correctly, tape-ins are completely safe for healthy hair. Only if mistakes are made during application and removal, hair damage can occur. Simply follow these extension tips, and you will enjoy beautiful hair for a long time:
- Have tape-ins professionally applied.
- If you want to remove your tape extensions, use a high-quality tape remover.
