Can You Reuse Tape-In Extensions?

Let’s end the suspense: Yes! The answer is yes! You can retape your tape-in hair extensions. 

But, the quality of tape-in extensions you purchase matters. If you buy poorly made tape-in extensions, they probably won’t last that long. (Maybe barely through your first wear!) However, when you buy high-quality Remy hair extensions like our Tape It’s, they’ll definitely last through multiple applications. (If you don’t know all about Remy, you’ll want to check out this post.) 

TL;DR? You can re-use your tape-in extensions but, the quality of your extensions impacts how many times you can reuse them.

So, how many times can you reuse tape extensions?

We hate to harp on this, but the quality of your tape-in hair extensions makes all the difference here. With high-quality extensions, you can potentially use them for up to a year (!). Impressive, right?!

When professionally installed, you can get 3 or 4 applications out of your tape-in hair extensions. Let’s be clear: Application by a professional is really key here. If you install your tape-in extensions correctly, remove them with care, and apply fresh, high-quality tape strips they’ll become your new signature look.

How to Re-Tape Hair Extensions

Are you ready for a tape re-up? We strongly recommend visiting a professional stylist to re-tape your hair extensions. Why? Professional stylists are the experts in hair care and styling. They know what they’re doing and will properly install your extensions so your hair looks sleek, shiny, and all sorts of gorgeous. 

Here’s how to re-tape hair extensions: 

  1. Your stylist will need to prep your hair first. During the first replacement, your stylist will use an alcohol-based solvent to remove the extensions.
  2. Next, the stylist will lay one extension at a time on a flat surface.  
  3. The stylist simply places replacement tape taps directly on top of the existing tape. 
  4. Finally, your stylist will section out your hair and begin the re-taping process!
