How to remove tape in hair extensions from your natural hair?

To remove tape hair extensions, you need to have a hair extension tape remover. If you already have a hair extension tape remover and you are ready to remove your tape in extensions all by yourself, then here are some easy steps on how to remove tape in extensions for you to follow:

  1. Expose the tape in extensions; move your natural hair out of the way. 

For you to be able to remove tape in extensions on your own, you must, of course, know where it is. It will help if you are standing in front of a mirror; you will be guided on where the tape in extensions are located if ever you are having a hard time finding them. Make sure to put your natural hair out of the way, avoiding any trouble or hassle once you are in your hair extensions removal process.

Pro tip: search clip on your drawer and use it in getting your hair out of the way to make your tape in extensions more visible. To remove tape in extensions properly, you need a hair clip to make hair extensions visible, avoiding unwanted hair damage.

  1. Using your hair extension tape remover, saturate the tape.

Your hair extension tape remover is an oil based product that will dissolve the glue that is holding your tape ins extension in place. By spraying the tape remover to the glued area, the remover will start to dissolve and remove the tape from your hair extensions. Allow the tape extension remover to seep in between the extension tape tabs.

Note: Not all hair extension tape removers are spray-friendly. Some products are designed to be dripped or poured. You need to choose the product that best suits your hair extensions.

  1. Carefully check if the hair extension has been loosened.

After applying the tape remover, gently check if you can now remove tape ins from your hair extensions. If you can remove tape in hair extensions, it means that you have successfully loosened its glue. Remember that a strong or forceful pull may result in hair damage or on your hair extensions when wiggling or tugging.

  1. Add more hair extension tape remover.

To further loosen up the tape in the hair extension glue, you may want to reapply more of the hair extension tape remover and let it sit on the tape tabs so the glue can absorb the remover even more. By patiently doing this, it will be easier for you to remove tape in hair extensions.

  1. Gently remove tape from hair extension.

After you have applied and reapplied the hair extension tape remover, there is a higher chance that you can now remove the tape from hair extensions. Peel away the extension tape from your natural hair.

If, however, the glue has not loosened enough after several applications of your hair extension remover spray, then the product may not be effective. The next best thing to do is find a different hair extension remover brand, which preferably has good reviews. You can also find tape-in hair extension remover with tv recommendations and then repeat the process.

  1. Remove all tape in hair extensions.

Once you have checked that your hair extension remover works for you, repeat the process in all of your tapes in hair extensions, keeping in mind gently removing each extension section. 

Note: Be sure to remove all leftover adhesive from your tape hair extensions.

  1. Properly apply hair conditioning. 

After you have successfully removed all the tape in hair extensions, your natural hair will feel sticky and oily at the same time. Wash your hair and use a hair conditioner to make your hair moisturized and properly conditioned. It would also help if you continuously brush your hair from roots to tips while letting your hair strands soak and absorb the conditioner.

Now that you have removed all the tape in hair extensions, set your hair extensions aside and remember that you can still reuse them. You have to replace the tape and have it re-installed and re-styled by your chosen and reliable hair salon specialist!
