Tape in extensions are this year’s big trend/ love in the world of hair extensions. We have had so many questions about them from first time users to people wanting to know more. But there are so many myths flying around. It is hard to distinguish the fake news from facts about Tape ins. I have heard everything hair health to how healthy they are for your own hair. There have been so many tales being spread on the internet. If you are trying extensions for the first time you will have questions and we can totally understand if rumours freak you out. That is why I want to show you the most common tape in extension myths and debunk them. #wearcliphair
Myth number 1: extensions make your hair fall out:
I had a little giggle when I saw this and I totally get it, there is a lot of false propaganda about this. I have seen horrible stories about hair loss and Naomi Campbell’s receding hairline blaming and claiming that extensions caused their issues.
Please be assured you this is totally untrue so if you a newbie to the world of extensions. Hair damage isn’t caused by extensions themselves but it is actually all down to inserting and removing extensions properly and more importantly, keeping your hair and extensions moisturised and clean.
For all, you newbies try to clip in extensions before any other type of extensions, that way you can get a feel for them. Tape in extensions are best applied by a professional but last a long time and are friendly to your hair.
Myth number 2: all extension are made from horse hair:
For animals lovers everywhere you will be happy to know this is mostly a myth! The reason I say mostly is you ultimately get what you pay for. The best extensions are actually not made from animal hair at all but donated human hair. If it says synthetic please do your research but it isn’t pretty. Keep your eyes out good quality companies like Cliphair who have the best quality human hair they use for their extensions. Why are real hair extensions the way to go? They so much easier to maintain and look better.
Like your own hair it can be styled, dyed and treated simply, not to mention how much smoother and will last loads longer.
Myth number 3: only use extensions to make your hair longer:
I hear this all the time. Yes, tape in extensions are brilliant for lengthening your hair. But the myth comes in thinking that extensions can only be used for lengthening. Having full hair is something we all love and tape in extensions are the safest and easiest way to add thickness and volume. Extensions aren’t just about faking the natural it can also be the key to expressing your adventurous side. If you have always wanted to try shaking up your colour but you have been too afraid to, tape-in extensions are great to try fun colours without damage or regret. This is great whether you want to try a fun bright colour or even stylish ombre extensions. If you have extensions your natural colour and want to shake them up good quality extension dye really easily.
