The temperature of these elements can reach 220C which can burn your finger to a crisp! This heat is used to melt the keratin mixing it into the Remy hair. Once the keratin bond is cool it becomes hard and your hair and the bond are attached to each other. That’s how the hair extension stays on your hair.

At the same time, it is very time consuming and can take several hours of your time. Above all, the worst part is when it comes to removing the extension. In this method, to break down the bond and remove it from your hair, often acetone is used which damages the cuticle and weakens the hair.

In addition, after taping in extension, you should avoid washing your hair or excessively sweating at least for 24-48 hours after application because the bond needs time to stay attached properly to the hair.
