What is thin or low density hair?
First, we can define the term “thin / fine hair” in a couple of different ways. It can refer to the number of hairs that you have on your head. So, if the number is low that means you have low-density hair. The other definition describes how thick the individual hairs are. You might not have low-density hair, but the individual hairs could be weak or thin.
Women have thin hair for different reasons. It could be genetics, or maybe their hair was damaged because of using hot tools, different chemicals. Another reason causing thin hair is incorrect or too aggressive hair dyeing and or bleaching. Please remember to set a good hair care routine with your hair unless it might cause thinning issues.
It’s also very problematic since hair is so fragile that you can’t really dye it. The same will occur when you want to use curling irons or cool, trendy hairstyles. That can be a real bummer or the reason for a lot of frustration and disappointment. Sadly, there is no natural way that you can make your hair much thicker, so many girls feel kind of stuck with it. There are shampoos, conditioners and vitamins, but these usually work best if the root cause is not genetics. Even then it can take months if not years to fix the root cause, especially if you continue to dye or curl your already fragile hair.
Luckily, extensions exist and are the perfect way to add volume to your hair!
Tape In Extension for Thin Hair – A Fantastic Pick
What are tape in hair extensions?
Tape-ins, be exactly like what they sound, also known as pre-bonded or fusion extensions, use a type of medical adhesive tape to stick them to your own hair. Stylists generally advise you let these types of extensions grow out and remove them after around four-to-seven weeks of using. By this time the adhesive will become weaker somewhat so, whilst still harsh, it is likely to be less traumatic than removing them after a couple of days when the bond should still be strong.
Tape-in extensions are one of the best option for people who have fine/thin hair. Attached with a special type of hair tape, these wefts are incredibly lightweight. This method places less weight on your hair and allows you to enjoy extensions with no risk of damage. Tape in hair extensions are also rather easy to install and maintain. Just need about half an hour to install and they can last for around three months.
Advantages of tape in extension for thin hair
– As discrete as you can get.
The way tape-ins work is by sandwiching a thin layer of your hair between two layers of extension tapes. They camouflage really well and won’t be visible on your fine.
– The best permanent / semi-permanent option for thin hair
Now, not only tape-ins are the only permanent method, but also the best one too! In fact, they are the most popular among all women. So, even with extremely fine hair, you get to use the best fusion method there is.
– The most versatile method.
Because there are no big and thick wefts of hair, you can place tape-ins in strategic places that fit your hair best. Additionally, you can even cut the tape into as many little pieces as you want. Shorter tapes use less hair which means there is less weight. That is perfect for fine hair.
How long can Tape-in hair extensions last?
Tape-in hair extensions are considered as a semi-permanent method, they can last for 5 months or longer. Typically, we recommend that after 4 – 6 weeks of using, you need to remove and re-apply them. Just like any other hair, however, it also depends on how well you look after them and on how quickly your hair grows.
Tips for you when applying Tape-in extensions
– Start with clarified, clean hair. No conditioner.
– Need to figure out how much hair you need ahead of time, it is not fun if you run out of hair. Most people need 3-7 packs for a full application of Tape-ins.
– Don’t take off the tape backing until you’re done sectioning the hair.
– Remember not to touch the sticky parts as much as possible so oils from your hands don’t weaken the adhesive (this leads to slippage)
Tips for removing Tape-In Extensions
Just as important as installing the hair is removing it properly to avoid damage. Move-ups are more time consuming than the actual installation, since you must clarify and re-tape before installation. We recommend having two appointments each time you move hair up. One to remove, and one to reinstall. You can also have 2 sets of extensions. Re-taping of the newly removed hair can be done when there is spare time. With 2 sets the removal and installation can be done in one appointment.
– Start by using a clear oil tape-in bond remover (not a keratin bond remover).
– Next step, use a Tape-In Hair Extension Placement Card to hold your extensions and remember where the wefts go.
– Wash and clarify your hair, don’t condition.
– With your clean hands, use replacement tape to re-apply the extensions.
How to Care for Tape-In Extensions
Wash & condition with sulfate-free products only!
Avoid any conditioners near the tape. Conditioners on the tape may cause slippage.
Try to air dry whenever possible and remember to be gentle when brushing. Start from the bottom up, holding the extensions to avoid pulling. Use the right brush & leave-in conditioners, and shouldn’t brush when the hair is wet.
Always use a heat protectant before straightening, curling, or using any form of high heat.
Don’t go to bed with wet hair.
