Best Hair Extensions NYC Tape In Hair Extensions Salons NYC! Tape-In Hair Extensions VS. Keratin Extensions.
Tape in hair extensions are a relatively newer technique and the BEST for women with thin or fine hair. The tape extensions are bonded to your natural hair with tape (bonded like sandwiches in between your own hair) and are 1.5” wide wefts applied row by row. The tape wefts are thin and lightweight, leaving no damage. We have an easy hair extension method that is 100% natural and a hair extension solution for women with thin hair.

The benefit of this type of hair extension for thin hair is that the single method application can be used as a solution. Instead of bonding two tape weft hair extensions together like you would for a normal tape application, one tape weft extension is placed on the hair and the other side is sealed with a single sided piece of tape. This is the best solution for thinning hair. It provides long wear without any damage to thin hair. Tape in extensions require no tools or chemicals. At Fine Artistik Salon, our hair extensions does not even need added glue or a flat iron as other companies do. That is what damages your hair in the long run.
Fusion hair extensions have keratin bonding on the ends and ultrasonic waves soften the keratin to bond during application. These types of hair extensions are rather costly and the installation process is lengthy. The removal process is tricky and can pull out more hair in the long run. The fusion method pulls out more hair and does not hold well one fine hair! Not a good option for women with thin hair.
It is important to consider how much weight, stress and tension is placed on your natural hair by the hair extensions. For fine or thin hair, you should look for the lightest density for hair extensions. It may seem that strand by strand application would be the lightest weight in applying extensions to your hair. But you must consider the potential damage to your hair that can be caused by bonding individual pieces of hair to natural thin hair.

With tape in hair extensions, the extensions are light weight and require no tools or fusion type of bond to stay in your hair. With the single method application, the extension is bonded with a piece of tape rather than sandwiching two extensions together. By doing so, the weight is reduced by half which is best for causing the least amount of strain and possible damage to thin hair.
There are also micro tape in hair extensions that are very small pieces of individual hair that can be taped in hair to add volume and highlights without changing the natural structure of your hair, minimizing any risk of damage to your hair.

The installation process for tape-ins is fairly simple. Your hairstylist will section your hair and starting from the bottom, they will place tape extensions 1 cm from your hair roots. They will then move up row-by-row until the back of the scalp is covered. Care & Maintenance? With any type of hair extensions, it is best to wait 48 hours before washing your hair in order to ensure the best quality. This will also ensure that the adhesive is secured to your hair. Once the bonds are attached, be sure to wash your hair only every 2-3 days while your extensions are in!
When showering with tape in extensions, do not place the conditioner on your wefts. This could cause the extensions to become loose. Remember to also brush your extensions at least twice a day. It is best to wrap your hair around a section of hair that you want to brush to prevent tugging. Swimming – It is recommended to wear a swimming cap, but you do not have to. We suggest that you pat dry your hair right away after you are done swimming so the chemicals do not sit on the wefts, potentially causing them to become loose.
Removal Process: To remove your tape-ins a solvent is needed to loosen the bond. Your hairstylist will place the solvent on the weft, let it sit for a few seconds and then peel it right off! Once they are removed, your hairstylist can have them re-installed the same day. As with all hair extensions however, we recommend giving your natural hair a break for at least a one weeks.
