Tape-In Hair Extensions Don’t Look Fake
Tape-in extensions really do look like your natural head of hair. I’ve been wearing extensions for years, and I have friends and colleagues who don’t believe me when I tell them. The bonds lie completely flat against the head and are so comfortable, I often forget about them completely — that is, until I catch a glimpse of my long, thick ponytail in the mirror (yup, you can even wear a ponytail). But keep in mind that not all hair is created equal. Matching hair density, texture, thickness, and color is critical to pulling off a seamless look. When shopping for a new head of hair, look for 100 percent human hair, either European virgin or Remy strands. In technical terms, this means that the hair cuticle is in tact and facing in the same direction. What that means to you is that you can style, dry, and iron the extensions just as you would your natural hair without fear of excessive tangles and matting.
