For quite a few years now it has been clip in hair extensions that have held the number one spot when it comes to adding some extra volume or inches to your hair. Although if bought if in the right shade and with good quality remy hair, clip-ins still have there problems; how many of us have seen that dreaded clip glinting through some poor unsuspecting girl's hair? Nightmare scenario for most and to some it seems they don't care if they are not exactly rocking the natural look. Now coming out of obscurity and into the contending place for the seamless non-permanent hair extensions race are the seamless tape extensions/pre-taped extensions.
The first time I heard about these kind of hair extensions was when reading one of my favourite beauty blogs mentioned the fact that Simply Extensions from South Florida used these illusive tape in hair extensions to apply in less than 30 minutes with top quality 100 % human remy hair at a fraction of the cost of crazy expensive great lengths hair extensions. Now who hasn't had hair envy when it comes to those South Florida models with there coiffured sun kissed locks or the dark Latin women with hair for miles? Well stop straining and willing your hair to grow because you can now just buy it; so much easier!
What are seamless tape in extensions?
Well they are just what they say on the tin really, in place of the usual clip in a hair weft there is a piece of double sided toupee tape, designed to be undetectable when placed on the scalp. SeamlessTape hair extensions can be washed and styled as normal, you can use your regular hair products, they are designed to be lightweight and to not drag or hurt, so they are suitable for those with fine hair. Tape hair extensions are semi permanent and can last up to 5-6 months dependent on specific circumstance. They are simple to apply and even easier to take out.
How do you put them in?
There are two methods used in the application of tape hair extensions one is the sandwich method and the other is the single method. With the sandwich method you take a section of your natural hair and apply one weft above it and one weft below it, effectively sandwiching your natural hair between the two wefts. This method is great for adding volume and can work out to be more longer lasting but it can be slightly tricky to get the application just right.
The other method and the relatively easier way is the single application. In this instance you just take a section of your natural hair and apply the weft above it, this can be done very quickly and is good for adding length but they may not last as long.
What are the downsides?
Although seamless tape hair extensions are very gaining in popularity in the United States, Australia and Sweden they are not readily available to come by in the UK and generally have to be bought online. This can prove difficult when trying to find a good color match for your hair. Sometimes the hair in taped extensions is not always of the best quality but I have found that Simply Extensions uses the top quality 100 % remy human available on the market. They are also the only ones with true seamless hair extensions.
