The Ultimate Guide to Tape-In Hair Extensions by Bombay Hair
Introduction to Tape-In Hair Extensions
Welcome to the world of tape-in hair extensions! This guide aims to cover everything you need to know about tape-in extensions, from choosing the perfect set for your hair, to applying, maintaining, and removing them. We'll also address some frequently asked questions and share some tips for styling your new extensions.
What are Tape-In Hair Extensions?
Tape-in hair extensions are a popular method of adding length and volume to your hair. They consist of strips made from 100% remy human hair equipped with a durable adhesive strip at the top, which is applied directly at the roots of your own hair.
Tape ins offer a semi-permanent solution that is less damaging to your hair compared to other types of hair extensions, making them an excellent choice for those with fine hair, thinner hair, or who may be experiencing hair loss due to too much stress.
What are the Advantages of Using Human Hair?
Bombay Hair uses 100% cuticle remy human hair because it reacts like your existing hair. So you can straighten it or curl it just as you would your own hair. Applying real hair extensions allows for thin hair to appear thicker and fuller and short hair to appear longer and captivating.
Benefits of Using Tape-In Hair Extensions
Tape ins are among the most popular types of hair extensions as they offer numerous benefits, such as the following:
- Add volume to your natural hair
- Add length to any hair type
- Blend seamlessly with your own hair for a natural look
- Quick and easy application
- Low maintenance and long-lasting results
- Easy to style with a wide range of color options
- Premium quality that is also affordable on any budget
Application and Removal of Bombay Hair Tape-in Extensions
Our clients should not attempt to apply, remove, or re-apply Bombay Hair tape in hair extensions at home. Doing so could result in damage to the extension and possibly to your own hair.
Proper installation of Bombay Hair tape in hair extensions must always be done by a professional stylist in order to get the most effective and natural looking results.
Clients who attempt to apply the extensions to their own hair realize they have not achieved the desired look and end up seeing a professional stylist to fix the mistakes that were made.
Skip the extra step and have them applied at the salon by a stylist who is fully trained in working with human hair extensions. This is the best way to ensure they blend seamlessly with your natural hair.
Choosing the Perfect Bombay Hair Tape-In Extensions for You
Bombay Hair offers a variety of lengths (16” - 24”) for their tape in hair extensions, ranging from short hair options to longer lengths that provide a more dramatic transformation. Consider the desired length and volume when selecting your extensions.
Whether you're interested in adding more hair or extra length to your style, there are tape hair extensions to help you achieve the desired look. Consult with a professional stylist if you're unsure of which length is best for you.
Bombay Hair has tape in extensions in a full spectrum of colors and shades, including chocolate brown, dirty blonde, ash blonde, natural black, and more. You're sure to find the perfect shade to match or complement your natural hair.
Bombay Hair even offers rooted skin wefts for a more natural blend with your own hair color. Consult with your stylist or the Bombay Hair team for personalized color recommendations.
Caring for Your Hair After Application
After applying your tape-in hair extensions, avoid washing your hair for 48 hours to allow the adhesive to bond properly.
Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, and avoid applying heavy products near the roots to prevent the adhesive from breaking down or getting worn out.
When brushing your hair, use a soft-bristle brush to minimize stress on the extension bonds. This will help to preserve the quality of your extensions.
Frequently Asked Questions About Tape-In Hair Extensions
How Long Do Tape-In Extensions Last?
With proper care, your Bombay Hair tape-in extensions can last between 6-8 weeks before they need to be removed and re-applied.

Are Tape-In Extensions Safe for My Hair?

Storage and Maintenance Tips
When not in use, store your tape-in extensions in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. To maintain the quality of the extensions, gently brush them before and after each use, and deep condition them regularly to keep the hair soft and manageable.
Storing your extensions under the right temperature conditions is important for proper maintenance. Heat can affect the hair and the tapes of your extensions in particular, so be sure to keep them in a cool, dry place at around 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything warmer will cause the tapes to become soft and the adhesive won't hold.
Cold can also have a negative impact on your tapes as they will become too rigid under chilly conditions. In either case, you will have a very difficult time applying or using your extensions.
