Natural Hair Extensions
Duct tape hair extensions are pre-tied one and a half inch wefts, with 40 wefts in a pack. The weft is made up of the highest grade adhesive for a secure and long lasting result. There are two types of hair extensions available, synthetic hair and human hair. Synthetic hair extensions are usually cheaper, but they tend to tangle and mat up. This is important to keep in mind when considering hair extensions. Unlike clip-in hair extensions, tape hair extensions are often worn and therefore exposed to all of your daily activities. No one wants their duct tape hair extensions to get tangled up throughout the day. In addition, synthetic duct tape hair extensions can melt when using heated tools and can be difficult to maintain in style. Having real human tape hair extensions avoids all the problems associated with synthetic tape hair extensions that can cause. The gold standard for hair extensions is 100% human hair. The cuticle or outer cellular layer remains intact and is indistinguishable from your natural hair in feel and appearance. Quality human hair is composed of a person’s hair, further enhancing its natural appearance. At INCH Hair Extensions, all of our hair extensions are made from human hair.
How long tape hair extensions will last is a very important question when determining what type of hair extensions are best for your individual needs. Generally speaking, tape hair extensions should be reapplied every 4 to 8 weeks. There are several factors that can greatly reduce or extend the length of time your tape hair extensions should last before you return to your hairstylist. If you have the right care regime in place, you can enjoy your tape hair extensions for longer before reapplying them. Well-made 100% human hair lasts longer than poorly made tape hair extensions, or simply put, “quality lasts”. Finally, if your natural hair is growing out quickly, it goes without saying that you must reapply your duct tape hair extensions faster or the gap between your natural hair and duct tape hair extensions will become noticeable. Tape extensions that have grown out may also become uncomfortable and annoying, it is important to maintain your tape extensions as this will also contribute to the longevity of your hair. Well maintained duct tape hair extensions can be professionally reapplied 2 more times to get the most out of it. So, when asking yourself “How long will tape hair extensions last?” the key to remember when asking is that with a quality care regime and professional application and removal, you can see up to 6 months.
It is important to Wash your hair thoroughly with a clarifying shampoo before your tape in hair extensions to improve adhesion. Some salons can also clean and prepare your hair as you wish. While there are many do-it-yourself guides available online, we strongly recommend that you seek the help of an experienced stylist. The application process must be precise in order to achieve a comfortable, beautiful and natural result. Hair must first be evenly separated for maximum coverage, volume and concealment. Your stylist will “sandwich” a portion of your hair between the two extensions. Clinical grade adhesives are super strong and must be applied immediately in the correct position, far enough away from the scalp and in perfect alignment with your natural hair. An experienced professional will ensure that no one knows you are getting hair extensions. In addition, if applied correctly, you will not be able to feel the banded hair extensions.
It is even more critical to call a professional when removing and reinstalling hair extensions. Before starting the removal process, the sticky substance must be fully dissolved with the correct dissolving agent. Only then is it possible to gently remove the hair extensions without causing any damage to the hair. Once the tape hair extensions have been removed, it is important to wash the hair thoroughly to remove any residue before reapplying the tape hair extensions.
Duct tape hair extensions are considered semi-permanent. Some semi-permanent hair extensions can cause more damage than others, and duct tape hair extensions are close to harmless if attached and removed properly. Most stories of duct tape hair extensions damaging hair are do-it-yourself (or friend) stories. So again, we strongly recommend that you seek professional help. Your hair is simply too precious to experiment with it. The goal is to look good without risking damaging or breaking your hair.
If the solvent goes in and the tape doesn’t slip out, add a little more. Don’t pull hair extensions! Pulling hair extensions will only strain your natural hair follicles. The key to avoiding damage is patience, sometimes it takes a little time for the tape hair extensions adhesive to break down, but it will.
Caring for your hair extensions with ties is as basic as caring for your natural hair. Make sure you practice the most important points to keep your hair extensions looking their best. You can still use styling tools, including hot ones, to create the style you like, just keep some distance between the heat and the weft adhesive. In extreme heat, the bonding agent for the ties will melt. We also highly recommend using a heat protectant spray, which can stop tape hair extensions from drying and frizzing, especially if you use heated tools frequently.
When you install tape hair extensions, it is important to use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. We also recommend using a leave-in conditioner to prevent your hair from becoming dry and tangled throughout the day.
Having a dry shampoo and shower cap can help protect your tape hair extensions from the effects of water. Reducing the frequency of hair washing and the temperature of your shower can help extend the life of your hair extensions.
Avoid using regular brushes, which can pull on the tangles of taped hair extensions and pull through the knots instead of untangling them. Using our looped hair brushes reduces the stress on taped hair extensions when combing through hair and does not pinch on the bond.
To reduce tangles while sleeping at night, braiding your hair is the best option, which allows the hair and strands to sit naturally.
Expect to pay $40 for the low end and up to $200 for the high end. You may ask why there is such a big difference when it comes to hair extensions. Artificial hair is the best and most beautiful option, but much more expensive than synthetic banded hair extensions. Another major factor is how many packs you need (40 pieces per pack). You may need 2 packs of hair extensions for a full head treatment, although you may also choose to use fewer packs for a topical solution. With proper care, application and removal techniques, you can repeat the application of high quality banded hair extensions 2 more times for a total of up to 6 months. Oh, and don’t forget to factor in the cost of your stylist.
Anyone who is looking for a semi-permanent hair extension solution. You must be willing to visit a professional hair stylist every 4 to 8 weeks, as hair extensions require maintenance to remain comfortable and flawless. This is a commitment you must make in order to minimize the risk of any hair damage.
Of course, there is an upside. In between trips to the salon, you can simply take care of your banded hair extensions and enjoy your long, full, natural hair without losing any more time.
If the above methods don’t work for you, we have other semi-permanent solutions like mirco-loops and nail tips. otherwise, our clip-in extensions are perfect for a different look every day, are easy to apply, and can be removed every day itself.

Absolutely! Tape-in hair extensions are perfect for those looking for a semi-permanent effect on short and thin hair. Why do you perform tape-in hair extensions on short hair? Tape-in hair extensions have narrow weft lines that are placed in rows, which gives your stylist flexibility in where and how they are installed. When it comes to short hair extensions, it is important to be able to blend your hair naturally with the extensions, to be able to add as many pieces as you need, to help create a complete look, and to disguise any blunt hairstyles. When it comes to fine hair, the sandwich bond is very thin and lays flat on your scalp, which means the bond is highly discrete. In addition, our tape hair extensions have been designed to be invisible tape hair extensions. Invisible tape hair extensions are made by placing the hair over the adhesive to create a more seamless look. With invisible tape hair extensions, it is easy to create up-do’s without the frustration of hair extensions.
Whether we are buying cosmetics, clothes, or duct tape hair extensions, what color should I buy always comes to mind. We have a total of 19 tape hair extension colors for you to choose from. Nine of them are block colors, ranging from black to silver, and 10 are mixed-blend tape hair extensions. Our block colors are available from 14 inches to 28 inches
When it comes to mixing colors, it’s great if you can find a color in the ombre tape extensions that resembles your natural hair, but if not, you can still create an ombre look by using block colors. To do this, it is best to match the tips of your natural hair. The color of the hair extensions are close to the scalp and near the roots, however, since the extensions are hidden, it is not necessary to match this color. All blending is done at the ends of your hair. It is best to match your lightest color so that the tape extensions extend in a seemingly natural way, rather than an abrupt color change. If you’re tossing between two colors, the rule of thumb for hair extensions is to always choose the lighter color. If you’re still not sure which tape hair extensions are right for you, we’re always happy to send you some photos of your hair in natural light and let our team help you match the color.
We have more than 10 mixed colors, including ombre coils and balayage coils, available in 14-28 inch lengths for you to choose from. We also have 9 block colors, so if you purchase a multi-pack of taped hair extensions, you can always mix the block colors to customize your own highlights.
Color matching and customization are available. You can send us your product requirements and a photo of your hair and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
