Tape Extensions are relatively fast to remove from the head.
The edges are gently opened and removal solution is sprayed inside. This releases the top tape from the hair. More solution is sprayed onto the bottom tape to release the tape from the natural hair.
Depending on the brand used, how long the extensions have been worn, how well aftercare was performed and products used sometimes a sticky, tacky residue is left in the hair so an oil based removal solution is then used.
Several shampoos are necessary to remove the oily removal solution so the hair is clean and ready for reapplication.
This takes much longer than the original fitting.
The build up of natural shed hair is gently teased apart & brushed out.
In this image you can clearly see where both the top & bottom tape have been removed, the natural shed hair and small amount of residue is still in position, this is prior to spraying with removal solution and gently combing to fully remove.
The amount of shed hair will vary person to person. It can appear to be a large amount but this is 6-12 weeks worth of hair which would have naturally fallen. If collected the hair from your hair brush over the same period you would be surprised at the amount.
Your hair may feel thinner as you will have become accustomed to the extra volume & weight of the added extension hair so may take a little while to adjust. This is also normal & it will be exactly as it was prior to extension wear . We monitor the natural hair at refits to ensure there are no adverse changes.
