Hair extensions offer a great solution if you’re looking for a transformation. Whether for length, body or colour change, hair extensions are virtually undetectable, light and easy to wear.

The hair used for hair extensions is 100% human hair and cuticle intact which means it is durable, soft and silky and will not matt or tangle. In fact, it will feel just like your own hair and can even be heated, styled and coloured.

Tape Hair Extensions

mcIntyres Dundee hair salons are your local expert in hair extensions.

We favour tape-on hair extensions which are are a quick and easy method which result in a very natural look. No one will guess you’re wearing extensions!

What are Tape hair extensions?

Tape hair extensions are a method that’s taken the world by storm. Hair extensions with tape. They offer a quick & easy, sleek tape extension. They give long, voluminous, natural-looking hair in less than an hour. Tape-on extensions are available in lots of different colours and lengths. Just like your own hair, this 100% real hair can become a part of your look which you can style according to your own hairstyle or mood.

No one will notice the extensions, but everyone will notice the difference.

Are Hair Extensions For You?

Our stylists and hair extension experts recommend tape for just about everyone! They are one of our most popular methods! If you have thin and fragile hair, we always recommend tape because it’s a gentle method with thin and highly discreet attachments.

What are the advantages of tape?

They don’t damage your hair
The pieces weigh between 2 and 3g so they won’t feel heavy or slide off. They work really well if you have fragile and/or damaged hair. They are ideal if you have thin hair. Do you have thin hair in which attachments always remain visible? That’s no longer a problem with Tape-on extensions.

Another benefits is the natural-looking results. Thanks to the soft, thin tape, you get a discreet attachment. Your locks will certainly stand out, but it won’t be obvious that you’re wearing extensions.

They are also easy to remove by one of our extension experts and can be reused for up to 8 months if you follow our recommendations for care and professional products to use. They simply require a maintenance appointment are between 6-8 weeks as your hair grows.

Tape-on hair extensions are applied directly on the root of the hair using a lightweight design. They are available in a range of multi-tonal shades and two optional lengths, 16-18” and 20-22”. The tape weft extensions add natural-looking length, volume, colour, and shine to your locks.

Seriously, you’ll wonder what you ever did without them.

BRUSHING

A soft bristle brush is recommended for daily use. 
Begin brushing at the ends and work up towards the root. 
At night – sleep with your hair in a loose braid or twist to prevent any tangles or knots.

CLEANSING

Brush hair prior to cleansing.
Soak with warm water.
Gently massage shampoo into root area, taking care to go between your extensions.
Repeat.
It is not necessary to scrub mid lengths and ends.

CONDITIONING

Apply conditioning to mid lengths and ends.
Avoid root and bond area.
Use a wide tooth comb to detangle hair and evenly disperse conditioner.
Rinse thoroughly.

TOWEL DRYING

Squeeze excess water and pat dry.
Do not rub.
Detangle from ends up to root.

DRYING AND STYLING

Hair can be left to dry naturally or blow-dried.
We recommend a low heat and soft bristle brush to blow-dry.
Heated tools can be used to style hair, we do not recommend stylers that exceed 185 degrees.
We do not recommend to sleep with wet or damp hair as this can cause the tangle.

EXTRA ADVICE

If you suffer from an oily scalp – wash hair regularly, as a build up of natural oil cause the bonds to slip or fall out.

Don’t use oils or serums near bonds.

Treat your extensions with the same respect your own hair. Maintenance is advised every 6-8 weeks and salon professional products should be used at home to maintain your extensions.

We do not advise colouring your extensions at home.

When swimming or on holiday we advise keeping your hair tied back and washing it directly after being in pool or sea water.

Be careful when using suncream as contact with your extensions can cause a change in colour.
