What Are Tape-In Hair Extensions?

A hair fusion method, that uses small pieces of medical grade adhesive to connect to your hair. Each small strand has a piece of double or single tape on the top. One of the best things about tape-in extension strands is that they’re invisible and impossible to detect if. The tape is see-through and small which makes tape-in a great option.

Since your hair grows, and the tapes grows down with it, you must maintain them regularly and have them re-taped.
