So I'm seriously considering getting the "tape in" hair extensions prior to the wedding because of my fine, flat hair. My stylist said she will install them for a decent price, and they are said to last almost 3 months after installation. I was thinking of having them install about two weeks before and have them colored the same time. I also bought a groupon for a Brazilian Blowout, so not sure when I should do that (before or after the hair extensions)
Has anyone tried these? How many weeks prior to the wedding did you have them placed? Were they annoying? Worth the cost?
I was and still am a partial hair extension junkie.
Tape and anything that actually bonds to your roots is terrible, and would make your hair even more fine. I've reviewed tape since I was highly interested in it a few months ago, and the removing process looks horrible. I did glue in extensions a while back, and I'm sure it was no better than tape. Even though they make oils to help unbind the hair from glue/tape, it still tears your hair out by the roots.
If you are trying to encourage your hair to grow, I would go with clip ins, or get a sewn in weave. I think clip ins would be more suitable for a destination wedding due to the humidity, and swimming. Hair extensions aren't meant to be in water continuously. So, if you're intending on wearing a swim cap to ensure your extensions are beautiful on your wedding day, then awesome. Else, your extensions will dry out and be damaged. It's dead hair, without any nutrients being transported to it, treat it nicely.
My hair has finally grown back, from a terrible "box dye" incident I had years ago to a long 20 inches I still wear extensions so I can get volume. I will be wearing them on my wedding day as well, but clip ins.
