INJECTION TAPE  


This method involves a mini weft of hair 2.5 - 3cm wide with an adhesive tape at the top. The difference with these tapes is the unique injection of hair on the front of each tape, giving the appearance of natural hair growing from the root. (which can be clearly seen in the image below.

Application involves taking a section of the clients hair, the tape is placed underneath and a second tape placed on top, sandwiching the natural hair between. This is built up row by row until the desired look is achieved.

The Tape is flexible and comfortable to wear as it lays flat to the head.

This method is worn between - 8-12 weeks with clients returning to have the them removed.  This system is completely reusable as the tape can be replaced so the same hair can be refitted.

This is an extremely cost effective method as less hair can be applied to create maximum impact.
This particular before and after on finer hair used only one and a half packs to achieve this look.

Here just one pack was used to build length at the sides. Two colours were intermixed to create a perfect colour match and blend.




PRO'S
1) Extremely quick application method. A full head can be completed in 2.5 hours.
2) Lowest priced method.
3) If the correct aftercare products and guidelines are used and followed the hair can be retaped and reused.
4) Two colours can be used at a time, (One on top and one on bottom of sandwich for good colour blending)
5) Lie completely flat to the head.

CONS
1) Method most prone to slipping if correct guidelines not followed.
2) Adhesive is used to attach to natural hair.
3) Depending on amount of tape strips applied it may be harder to disguise wearing up in a ponytail, so only a low ponytail may be possible.
4)Unsuitable for greasy hair / oily scalps.
5) Two appointments required for refitting to allow reaping time.
