[Virgin Hair] Tape In Hair Extensions Strong Double Sided Invisible Look Dark Brown #4
Love it . High quality. I did recommend all my clients. I am a hairstylist and I uses extensions all the time myself and my clients.
These extensions are life changing for me. I have thin fine hair and doesn grow for anything. I feel more confident and pretty with these.
Quality: So far they're great. I did the fire test, and they are human hair. They feel soft (see video), but we'll see how they hold up with occasional heat (will do update). Using argan oil thermal protector.Color: I got the light brown, but hennad them (see below for all natural recipe). My hair came out more orange tinted, but it blended nicely. There were these random black hairs in both packs of the light brown that kind of stood out, so idk about that, but didn't matter for my needs.Thickness: They feel soft and are pretty thick, 2 packets was almost too thick for me but I have thick hair. My natural hair falls to mid chest, so half the volume above that is my hair, and everything below is the extensions natural volume with 2 packs.Length: they fall to the crevice of my back which is a good length. I only wish I did more on the bottom layer so it would be less wispy at the very bottom. Prob would be better to trim after, but I'm scared and I'd have to keep track of the sections when I remove and reinstall.Tape: Tape was very strong and lasted through henna mix and two washes before I even removed papers. I found it easier to cut about halfway down the tape in the center and fold it over tiny sections of hair. Make sure there's no loose hairs not fully in the tape or it'll pinch. Not too close to scalp that they can't bend upward. Came with 24 extra pcs per pack.Value: fabulous. My favorite part. I had sew ins a while ago which were an absolute nightmare, just painful. I forget these are even there. For the total $80 I spent on these, if they didn't feel great after it's first use, I could buy brand new ones and it would still be cheaper than getting them done by a hairdresser. And they were so easy to install! Just section your hair off (From mid ear, upper ear, and peak of brow) and leave a few centimeters between each extension. Takes about 45 min with two mirrors.__________________________Henna recipe: henna powder, beetroot powder, black tea, coffee grounds, and you can add egg, rice water, and/or yogurt.Better if cured over night. Leave on 1-6 hours depending on how saturated you want it.6 month update: about 2-3 months ago they got a little brittle and last month they needed a change. So about 5 months of life, which is pretty on par what others are saying. I probably could have done more to keep them hydrated though. Made the mistake of not doing on unconditioned hair and they slid way too fast. Another time I put conditioner closer to roots and a bunch came out.
I've used 6 different hair brands over the years for extensions and these are by far the best quality. They're very soft and beautiful and have held up for 8 weeks (I'm about to retape). In my experience I have always had 3-4 of my extensions fall out over the course of use, but with these ones I have not had even 1 come out, so I know the tape is really good quality too. Def purchasing again when I need a new set after this one. I purchased 3 packs and only needed about 2 for my whole head. Colors are accurate (I got two 4s and one 6 for dimension) and haven't faded.If you're on the fence about extensions, these are a great choice! Totally recommend.
I have used clip in extensions before but they are such a pain. These are the first tape ins I have tried but I am so impressed! I can't see spending hundreds on hair when this works perfectly. I highly recommend and may buy more to try out a full head of extensions.
