Hair extensions are a great way to get the full, long head of hair that you have always dreamed of. Taking care of a set of tape in extensions can significantly improve and elongate the life of the extension, but how often should they be changed out?

Tape in extensions allow you to enjoy all the benefits of extensions without causing a great deal of damage to your hair, your hair follicle, or to the scalp. This type of extension is applied to sections of hair that are sandwiched between two pieces of tape. These extensions are semi-permanent and are a fantastic way to get beautiful hair that is full and thick.

How Long Do Tape In Hair Extensions Last?

This is a question that is best answered by first addressing the proper care for your extensions. You should not brush them too roughly, pull on the extension, pick at the extension, and use a shampoo and conditioner that is gentle and will not damage the extension. Just like your natural hair, your extensions are delicate and should be treated as such. Our SDX tape in hair extensions are high quality and when properly cared for, can last approximately eight weeks.

How Often Should I Replace my Tape In Hair Extensions?

Replacement depends on the condition of the extensions and how far is your new growth. If your hair has gotten so long that your tape is showing it’s time to remove and reapply or replace them. If your tape in extensions are starting to lose their shine and smoothness it may be time to replace them.

When it’s time to replace your tape in extensions, you can either remove them yourself or go to a salon. Luckily, instead of spending a bunch of money on extensions at the salon that you know nothing about, you can purchase SDX tape in hair extensions and have your hair stylist apply it for you.
