My Experience With Tape In Hair Extensions
If you're thinking about getting tape ins i'm here to give you the run down on my personal experience and answer any questions you have!
These photos were taken a few months apart. Both after just getting the extensions installed.
How much do they cost?: I got my extensions installed at Brush salon in Vancouver. The hair was ordered by my hair dresser (not sure where from, it was just her supplier) The hair itself cost $400 and to have them installed cost around $100. Every re-installation is around $100 as well.
How long do they last?: In the photo to the left the hair extensions are 8 months old. I'm taking them out permanently in a few weeks so for me they lasted 9 months. How long they last really depends on what hair you bought in the first place and how well you take care on them. On average I think they should last 6 months to a year. You need to get the hair moved up (re-installed) every 2-3 months.
Do they damage your hair?: Personally I didn't find them to be damaging. I would wear clip in extensions almost every day before getting tape ins and found those were worse on my hair.
Would you get them again?: I would definitely get them again. When I take them out in a few weeks I'm planning on rocking my natural hair for a while but will probably be getting them again.
Cons?: There are a few draw backs to having tape ins. First of all they aren't cheap. Secondly it sucks washing your hair. Lastly they occasionally fall out.
