are many beauty-supply brands that offer pretaped extensions.
EasiLites, Simplicity and Unique VIP Tapex extensions are just a few.
These extensions typically come in precut wefts with the tape already
attached to the bond. The tape has a protective covering that is peeled
off when applied to the hair.
Regular Tape Extensions
extensions simply come in wefts and the tape needs to be purchased
separately. Special hair-extension tape can be purchased at any
beauty-supply store. One example is Batistone tape extensions, which are
wefts with a clear, flexible mounting base where the bond is. The tape
is double-sided, and is applied directly to the mounting base. After you
have securely attached the tape to the base, you can cut any excess
tape off the ends so that it fits properly on your hair extension. When
you are ready to attach the extension, simply peel the backing off the
tape and stick it to your hair.
PreparationThere are a few things you will need to prepare for the addition of your extensions. First of all, your hair needs to be clean, dry and absent of styling products. Greasy residue from dirty hair or product buildup will make it difficult for the tape to stick to the hair.
A good way to prep the area is by dipping a cotton ball in alcohol and
lightly sweeping it across your strands at the part. This will reduce
the amount of oil near the root, making attachment easier. Don't soak
the cotton ball, since alcohol can severely dry out your hair.
ApplicationWhen applying pretaped extensions, you will notice that the ends of the tape extend past the bond of the weft to create tabs. This is because most pretaped extensions actually wrap all the way around your hair. Peel the backing off the tape and select a thin section of hair right below the part. Depending on the size of the precut wefts, the width of the section of hair you choose will vary. Stick the extension a couple of millimeters below the root; then lift the section of hair. You will be able to see the two tabs of excess tape sticking out from the sides of the hair. Fold the tabs toward each other, sticking to the underside of the section of hair so they meet in the middle.
