5 Benefits of Tape in Hair Extensions – Why Should You Use Them?

Do you love to experiment with your hair? If so, have you considered using tape in hair extensions? With these extensions, you can not only easily try different hairstyles, but different hair colors as well.

What Are Tape in Hair Extensions?

Tape-in extensions are hair integrations that can easily be taped with medical-grade glue to your existing hair. They are mainly meant for women who have or love thick and voluminous hair. The best thing about these extensions — which are one of the most popular types of hair extensions — is that they are relatively easy to install and look natural.

Why Should You Get Tape in Extensions

1.      Easy and Quick Installation

As aforementioned, it’s relatively easy to install tape-in hair extensions. While it doesn’t take a few minutes like clip-in hair extensions, they can be installed by the wearer in around 15-30 minutes. However, exactly how long it takes to attach them to your hair depends on the number of extensions you use.

2.      Lasts Long and Looks Natural

Tape in human hair extensions can last long. Because they are made of human hair, they are durable and look very natural. However, the real trick is how well you maintain them. The better you maintain them, the longer they are likely to last with some wearers getting months out of their extensions.

3.      An Alternative Option for Damaged Hair

These extensions are also the ideal options for those with damaged hair, especially after dyeing their hair. Adding more volume to cover up damaged or thinning hair is easy with tape in hair extensions. They look absolutely natural since they remain completely attached to the existing hair. However, what you need to do is to choose the extensions that match your natural hair color and texture.

4.      Easy to Maintain

You don’t have to spend hours taping in the extensions. As mentioned already, it can take just around half an hour to install. For newcomers, it can take longer but with practice, the time taken reduces. Additionally, tape in human hair extensions can easily be removed without causing damage to your existing hair provided it is done gently and with care. They do need some maintenance but, don’t worry — they are easy to maintain. This involves brushing the hair frequently but don’t overdo it. Twice a day at a max should be fine and take care while doing so to not damage your hair.

5.      Several Hairstyling Options

With long and thick hair, you can literally try any hairstyle. And since tape-in extensions allow you to have voluminous hair, you can try anything from sleek ponytails to long braids. The options are endless. So what are you waiting for? Go and get your favorite extensions.


If you decide to wear hair extensions, you can’t go wrong with tape-ins. These extensions require very little work compared to more advanced types and can last a long time if maintained properly.
