What are adhesive or tape extensions

The adhesive extensions are strips of hair about 4 cm wide. They come with a built-in adhesive tape at the top.

They’re placed over a section of your hair like a sandwich. Two strands of extensions stick to a strand of your hair, in a contrasting way. Repeat the process with as many extensions as you wish.


Can I use adhesive extensions if I have fine hair

They’re ideal for you, if you have very fine hair. Or maybe, if you have lost hair volume, due to circumstances such as stress, pregnancy, anemia or some other reason. If that’s your case, extensions are the best way to recover lost volume.

How long the adhesive extensions last

The duration of hair extensions depends on the use and care you give. The time of use of the adhesive extensions is about 8 weeks, but then can be replaced. All you have to do is remove them, apply more tape and put them back on. This process can be repeated up to 3 times. That means they can last from 8 months to 1 year.

To replace them you will need the extension tape and the extension remover solvent . You can buy both products in our online shop.

Duration also depends on other factors

The way you care for them also influences how long they last. Therefore, it is not possible to say exactly how long natural extensions last in good condition. If you know how to care for natural hair extensions, they will last longer than you think.

The duration of the extensions also depends on the quality of the hair. In our online shop we have premium quality adhesive extensions . These are high quality remy hair.

You can also find in our shop adhesive extensions from Indian virgin hair . Virgin hair is a type of untreated hair, without dyes or other chemicals, which could damage the quality of natural hair. That is why it is usually hair of dark tones, as it is its most common color of origin. This is not a problem as you can dye or bleach your extensions to your liking to get the exact hair colour you want.


Virgin hair extensions, or unprocessed hair, are an excellent choice when buying hair extensions. They have the best quality available, and therefore the longest durability. Virgin Indian hair lasts up to 3 years, no problem.

What do I do if the adhesive strips are peeled off before time

What is the adhesion power of the adhesive tape for extensions? More than 2 months of adhesion. (You will not need much more adhesion since after this time your own hair will have grown and you will have to “retouch” your extensions, or raise them so that the union is not seen). The few cases where the ribbon was removed within two months were by improper placement or by using hair products with a very greasy texture. For this reason it is advisable not to apply conditioners or very moisturizing masks.

Do not wash the hair for the next 48 hours, after the application of the extensions. When that time has passed, wash your hair with a neutral shampoo. If your hair needs moisturizing, such as conditioner, mask or serum, apply them only from half to ends. Make sure that they do not touch the adhesive strips, so that they do not weaken the adhesive’s adhesion power.

If you take these tips into account, adhesive extensions will last a long time.
