Tape-in hair extensions have been around for a while, but would they work for you? Choosing the right type of hair extensions can sometimes feel overwhelming. There are so many options available and sometimes it’s easiest to just jump on what’s trending.
However, taking the time to consider your hair type and lifestyle has benefits. For example, doing so will help in picking the best type of extensions.
These particular extensions are considered to be semi-permanent. And their longevity depends on several things. First, how well you care for them. And second, how fast your hair grows. In general, they can last from 4-8 weeks before needing to be changed out or re-applied.
