How Many Tape-In Extensions Do I Need?
Tape-in hair extensions are the perfect choice if you’re looking for a semi-permanent hair extension option. They add length, play up the dimensions of your hair, and increase volume. (So, win-win-win!) Tape-in extensions are lightweight, making them easy and comfortable to wear. And you can reuse tape-in extensions with a proper haircare routine.
Are you thinking about getting tape-in extensions? Wondering, “How many tape-in extensions do I need?” No worries, baddie, we’ve got your answer – and more! (Check out our FAQ on tape-in extensions.) But first, we need to cover the basics of buying tape-in extensions, so you know exactly how many to order!
Tape-In Hair Extension Sizes and Hair Extension Weight
If you want to choose the right type of tape-in hair extensions for you and your lifestyle, you have to research your options for hair extension sizes and hair extension weight. The length and weight of your tape-in extensions will help determine how many packs will work best for your hair goals and hair type.
For example, the longer your hair extensions are the more they weigh, so you have to take into account whether you have thin, medium, or thick hair. Each type of hair can only handle a certain amount of weight. Your hair type also affects your level of comfort and how wearable longer or heavier extensions will be.
Our Tape It extensions come in 12 inches, 16 inches, 20 inches, and 24 inches. To get a better idea about weight, the 12-inch hair extensions weigh 15 grams each, the 16-inch weigh 20 grams, the 20-inch weigh 26 grams, and the 24-inch weigh 31 grams. (For even more help deciding, we have a guide for choosing the best length for your hair!)
How Many Packs of Remy Hair Do I Need?
Curious about how many tape-in extensions for a full head of hair? With our 100% Remy human hair extensions, you’ll use roughly 4 to 6 packs. (That’s an average – you might need more or less!) So, how many pieces of hair extensions come in a pack? That varies, too, depending on where you buy them, but ours come with 10 pieces per pack (or 5 double-sided hair extensions).
Remember, the amount of hair extension packs you need is based on a few factors (which we’ll cover in the next section). You have to consider your hair type and your main goal – do you want to add length, volume, or dimension to your natural tresses?
