Tape-in Hair Extensions

WHAT ARE TAPE IN EXTENSIONS?

Tape in extensions are one of the newest and most popular hair extension trend on the market. Tape in hair extensions are thin tape wefts, 1 inch wide pre-taped hair wefts, that get “taped-in” in between your own hair in “sandwich” like bonds. It is the most requested hair extension method in salons worldwide and Celebrities best kept secret! This method is 100% natural, requires no tools or chemicals, and lasts up to three months-and the hair is reusable! It takes about an hour to apply an entire head with zero damage to your natural hair. As long as proper maintenance and care is given tape ins can be reinstalled and reused several times making it the best bang for your buck! You will absolutely love this effortless transformation. We offer both Standard and Premium Hair extensions to meet all budgets so that everyone can have the hair that they dream of! Standard Hair (like Lovesinthehair) requires much more TLC and maintenance to last nearly as long like the Premium Hair Extensions (GBB/Glam Seamless). Standard Line can be reused up to 2 times and Premium can be used 3-4 times lasting up to a year. All hair used at Babe Cave Beauty is 100% Remy Human Hair.

Q&A

I HAVE FINE/THIN HAIR, CAN I WEAR TAPE IN EXTENSIONS?

 

If you have thin hair, tape in extensions are one of the best hair extension choices for you. Clips will be too bulky and may cause balding long term on those who have super fine hair. With tape ins your hair is protected from damage and breakage. 

WILL THE TAPE IN METHOD METHOD DAMAGE MY OWN HAIR?

If properly installed and maintained, this method will not damage your hair. It is 100% natural and there are no chemicals or tools used. 

CAN I WASH MY HAIR EVERYDAY AND BLOW DRY IT? WHAT ABOUT SWIMMING?

 

Yes, you can wash your hair and get blowouts without ruining your seamless extensions. Our strong tape is extremely durable and lasts, as long as the scalp does not become excessively oily the bonds will stay. We have high quality tape that is strong. You can swim, workout, go on vacation, and not have to worry about your extensions coming out.

HOW LONG WILL THE HAIR LAST?

Each application can last up to 12 weeks with proper care. The hair extensions can be reused and reinstalled up to 3 times with proper care.

Aftercare

Home Care For My Extensions

  • Do not wash hair up to 48 hours after initial application of extensions ; allow up to two weeks to become comfortable with hair extensions.

  • Extensions may be painful or uncomfortable the first few days.

  • Before washing, brush all tangles out using gentle strokes. Brush hair from the root down with a recommended hair extension brush up to three to four times daily.

  • Do NOT leave bonds wet for long periods of time. After being in a pool, hot tub, body of water, or any other chemically treated water, wash thoroughly with a PH balanced formula – colours and quality of hair may be altered depending on the chemical make-up of water treatment systems. Hair extensions are not recommended for use in chlorinated water, salt water, and hard water with a high mineral content or in hotter climates than normally accustomed to as damage or discolouration can occur.

  • We recommend pulling hair back into a loose braid or secure top-knot with a soft hair tie when going to sleep to prevent tangling/matting.

  • ONLY use extension products prescribed by your hair extension technician. Do not use any over the counter chemicals such as; perm solution, permanent or semi-permanent hair colour, shampoos that contain sulfate, or any products not approved by the technician/salon.

  • Do not apply any oil-based products directly to the bond, instead hydrate hair mid-shaft down with serums and/or oils.

  • When styling with hot tools, avoid heat to the bond.

  • DO NOT USE natural and organic shampoo and conditioners.

In Studio Maintenance

  • Scheduled maintenance appointments are recommended every 2.5-4 months depending on the condition of your extensions and natural hair.
