Tape In Extension Remover 101 

Let us break it down for you, just like these removers will break down those adhesives. When you’re shopping for tape extension remover, you might think you only need one type of tape in hair extension remover. After working with countless hair extension stylists, we realized that one tape in extension remover just doesn’t cut it! That’s why we developed a pro formula trio of removers where no residue will be left behind, period.  

Here are the three removers for any sticky situation:  

Remover 1:  Tape In Extension Remover

When you’re ready to remove your hair extensions, start with our Remover 1: Tape In Extension Remover spray. This tape extension remover makes the process seamless and straightforward when removing tape-in hair extensions. With an oil-free and alcohol-based formula, this is the right tape in extension remover spray for the job! Feel invigorated with a refreshing spa scent as the remover works its magic. Our Remover 1 spray is a customer favorite because it neutralizes adhesives and removes extensions cleanly in one piece.  

Remover 2: Tape In Residue Remover

Once you’ve removed all of your hair extensions, it’s time for the next step! Inevitably, some residue will be left behind after removing tape in extensions. That’s where Remover 2: Tape In Residue Remover steps in to take care of any adhesive left behind. With relaxing hints of jasmine, gardenia, and fresh mint, no need to feel frustrated with a sticky mess stuck in your hair. This tape extension remover works alongside Remover 1 as an iconic duo that keeps your hair fresh and residue-free!  

Remover 3:  Stubborn Tape In Residue Remover

After you’ve taken care of your hair extensions with the first two removers, sometimes there’s super stubborn residue. Never fear, our secret weapon Remover 3: Stubborn Tape In Residue Remover is here! When you’re dealing with excessive residue (like when those hair extensions have been left in for over eight weeks), don’t fret! This is common when using extra strong hold tape or liquid glue that really sticks to its promise of a long-lasting hold. Say goodbye to clingy residue with a tape in hair extension remover that’s no match for even the toughest adhesive. Plus, the formula conditions and strengthens your strands without harsh chemicals.

How to Remove Tape In Extensions with Big Kizzy’s Remover Trio  

Now that you know what to look for when buying tape extension remover, let’s move on to how to use them on your extensions. We recommend heading to a salon to have your tape-in extensions removed by a specialist. But if you’d like to remove them yourself or are a stylist, this how-to guide will help!   

  • Start by working with clean, dry hair  
  • Spray Remover 1 on the top of the tape extensions. 
  • Allow the remover solvent to drip down into the extension.  
  • Separate the tape tabs from each other. You can use a rat-tail comb between the two extension wefts and move slowly from side to side. 
  • Apply more solvent as necessary.
  • Gently remove the tape in extension from the natural hair.  
  • Repeat these steps until all extensions have been removed from the hair. 
  • Spray Remover 2 on the natural hair where there’s leftover residue.  
  • Comb the strands in a downward direction. 
  • Repeat this for all areas of the hair that have residue. 
  • If you’re dealing with excessive and stubborn residue, spray on Remover 3 and let sit. 
  • Comb from roots to ends and rinse hair. Repeat as necessary.  
  • Shampoo hair to cleanse and remove any oil (rinse the hair with cold water at the end of the wash for added benefits!)
And there you have it! All that’s left is to wash and condition the hair extensions to prep them for reapplication. Ensure you’re stocked up on everything you need, from hair tape to hair tools by Big Kizzy
