    Love your videos. I super excited to try the tape method in the next few weeks. Feel much more confident about trying them now I’ve watched all your videos! Thank u! Xx ps I’ve subscribed too! Xxx

  2. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yay!! Can’t wait to hear what you think!! <3 🙂

  3. jbkidsco says:

    i LOVED my tape ins…i was a little freaked out when i took them out. it seemed like i lost a lot…i will say that yes the residue DOES come out…do not worry about it. please find a way to not lose so much hair….lol. i agree with the sandwich method. you can not see it your way.

  4. jbkidsco says:

    thank you so much for your videos

  5. Lori Duncan says:

    When I accidentally ordered too wide tape, I actually just cut my bigger tape in half before applying it to each side. Makes your scissors sort of sticky but at least it made it cost effective 🙂 I miss my tapeins since I decided summer was being too harsh on my wefts. I’m looking forward to putting them back in this fall!

  6. Gloria Shin says:

    yayay new video! heh. cant wait for the giveaway -crosses fingers- <3

  7. Neva Leeloo says:

    i ordered walker tape few days ago and i found glad blond wefted extensions in my town, i can’t wait to do my own tape in’s like you!!

  8. Neva Leeloo says:

    oh and i ordered 1/2″ x 3 yards (two rolls) walker no shine! i have to dye my extensions before in pink, and after i will put the tape, i hope it will hold on!i looooove watch your videos, you are so patient and you answer all questions you talk about all possible issues!! all the others videos (not of you) i watched about tape in’s are just poorly made, i recommend yours a billion times if i have to! i am french and there is no french video about that so maybe i will do one, and mention yours!

  9. MoiraS63 says:

    very informative. I haven’t tried it yet but I am certainly looking forward to getting it done.

  10. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yay – thank u for the feedback! And – I do not think it is loosing extra hair – just the normal hair we shed everyday comes out when you take them out..

  11. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Great idea Lori! And yeah – I can’t wait for you to put them back in either!! 🙂

  12. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Thank u!! Can’t wait either – so excited to see who it is!! Good Luck!!

  13. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Hi Neva! I love that idea!! You should do a video and let me know when it is up – I will be the first to watch it! 🙂 And – thank you for the super sweet comments!! xo!

  14. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Thanku! Let me know how it goes for you! 🙂

  15. Jane Vallejo says:

    Thank you so much for your videos! 🙂 so helpful!

  16. dirtyDprincess says:

    christi- thanks so much for your videos! i have a BIG CAUTION warning for all the girls trying tape-ins: DO NOT FLAT IRON THE WALKER TAPE WHILE IN YOUR HAIR, (particularly if using a “sandwich” method!– the adhesive tape WILL melt into your hair and you will NOT be able to get it out! no sovent could dissolve it! my actual hair tracks came off the tape witinin couple of days, but the tape stayed!-i had to cut them out, losta lot of my hair in the process and now i have bald spots! no joke! :((

  17. Codiegirl101 says:

    You should do a video on the tape in extensions on hold it folds over and tell me how you like it. 🙂 please and thank you

  18. Jessi Kolesnikov says:

    I just love ur videos! I would like to tell u to use caution with the “sandwich” method. For 2 reasons. 1 – it pulls like crazy. There is only a tiny thin line of hair between the “sandwich” and EVERYTHING pulls; sleeping, styling; putting it up & even the weight of it wet in the shower. 2 – it may break ur hair off. It did mine! There isnt a lot of natural hair holding in ur wefts the weigh plucks the hairs from your scalp. I switched to “non-sandwich” and love it! Thanks so much!! 🙂

  19. Ashley Bilke says:

    Yay a new video!! 🙂

  20. Chloe Luckin says:

    Hi christy, how many times do you reuse your wefts? 🙂

  21. stricheal says:

    I just wanted to say I use the Walker double sided tape. And all your great tips and instructions but I do the sandwich message with the double sided tape one side to the weft and then one side to my hair and then lifted up and put another Weft stick it to the underside. Sam Like You Chrissy I couldn’t do tiny sections mine were two and a half inch sections. And mine actually lasted 2 months bAnd for the girl that doesn’t like to fill the tape with the sandwich message you won’t really feel it

  22. stricheal says:

    But I follow all your other instructions I use all the products you recommend you really gave me the confidence to do this and I love it with my first go around I had to use artificial hair which actually works pretty good but it was also very heavy so I’m waiting to get my remy hair. But I love all your videos you’re so bubble and cute and you like to talk a lot like I do. Keep it up you’re doing a great job

  23. stricheal says:

    oops was using speech to text and noticed all the typos in my first to comment but I hope you get what I meant:)

  24. sunnihope says:

    Can u reuse hair? I color my hair a lot. So if I tape them in and remove them can I put new tape on them

  25. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yay- you are super welcome – thanks too for being so sweet!! 🙂

  26. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Oh my goodnesssssss!! I am so sorry to hear that!!! Thank you for the caution tip – yikes!!! 🙁

  27. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    I like that idea – thank you – I will!

  28. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Awww- GREAT feedback – thx so much for sharing!!

  29. 52weeksofbeauty says:


  30. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    For tape ins – I can re-use the same hair for 3-4 months… 🙂

  31. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yeah – I got it all – I think! 😉 I LOVE speech text…so much easier! And thank you so so so much for what you said. I LOVE the feedback and you wrote (spoke ;)). Such cute, sweet things – thank you!!

  32. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yes – it’s VERY easy to pull off old tape, wash your wefts and dry them. There will be some stickiness after and that helps the new tape adhere even better… 🙂

  33. frenchinhalee says:

    thank you so much, great info!!!!

  34. Chloe Luckin says:

    Can you dye your hair with the tape ins in your hair? 🙂

  35. yangpny says:

    me and my sister both used the same tape in extentions and hers fell off the first wash, which was 3 days after the insert..and what i figured out was that she has oily hair, so hers didnt stay while i have normal to dry hair/scalp and mine didnt come off so that might a problem.

  36. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    I would not if I were you – the “taped” part does not get color and it looks crazy… lol

  37. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Awww – ur welcome! Thx too! 🙂

  38. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yeah – maybe you are right about that. I have very dry hair. Maybe a really strong clarifying treatment for her first with no conditioner may help…

  39. 13MsLeo says:

    I can’t believe I missed this video! Thanks for all of the advice and taking the time to answer all of these questions. I am using your non-sandwich method on my 1.5″ wide tape-ins (I stick 3 tape-ins together for extra thickness and then use the Walker tape on the outside). I recently had a spa day and everyone was saying how smart and creative I was for thinking of this method of installation, LOL! I directed them to your YouTube for all of the info on this technique.

  40. 13MsLeo says:

    I do an all-over color and I do have my dark roots colored every other month with my tape-ins installed. But I am only coloring the hair above the tape. My stylist does extensions, so she is good at not getting the color/bleach on the tape.

  41. Chloe Luckin says:

    Hi christy, I’m trying to buy the walker 3/8″ tape on your ebay site and it says that the item isn’t for sale. Please help me out? I want to try out tape extensions and you’re the only person I have found who ships to uk.

  42. DiiJiiGii says:

    Do you do anything special to protect the hair at night from tangling or damage or to protect it the first week from pulling while you sleep? Will it be safe or should I lightly braid it or use a nightcap a la Night Before Christmas? Ready to install my extensions next week! Going to a water park on Saturday so I have to wait until then.

  43. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    They don’t pull at all – as long as you do it the “UN-sandwich way”, like I do. I think if you want to be extra safe – don’t wear it up while you sleep for first week – maybe a side braid or low pigtail braids would be best…

    • Leigh Horn says:

      I tried pretaped extensions for the first time last week. Sandwich method. I have very thin fine hair. My scalp still hurts, can’t do a high pony. Hate the sandwich method. Im going to take them out and redo un-sandwich method.

  44. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Try my eBay seller ID: twoplumsup

  45. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Awww – that is so sweet and fun to hear about! Yay – what width tape are you using? The tabs?

  46. victoria schwambach says:

    I use the “emails tip” It is amazing! i love it! I most defiantly would recommend that way!

  47. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    YAY! That’s awesome! I think it is a great tip from her!

  48. 13MsLeo says:

    I’m using the Walker tape on the outside of each 1.5″ piece. BUT I AM GOING TO BE PUTTING IN WEFTS JUST LIKE YOU DO AFTER I GET MY COLOR DONE. I will be following all of these tips and am excited to have the convenience of just a few wefts instead of 25 separate little pieces!!

  49. tukhlina says:

    Thank you so much for our videos! Are tape in extensions safe during pregnancy?

  50. Tamschem says:

    I would be sooo grateful if you did a video on hairstyles that are compatible with tape in extensions!

  51. DiiJiiGii says:

    K, I’ve taped in my hair, just waiting a few days to send you a pic so it’s sturdy enuf for me to style it. It looks kind of unblended right now cuz I’m trying to not do anything with it, but I think it will be great once I can straighten or curl it next week. The quality of my ebay hair definitely does not look as good as your Miss Flirty extensions, but I wanted to practice with my bargain hair. I love how flat it is and how I can wear it higher up and closer to my face than clip ins!

  52. DiiJiiGii says:

    I’d really like to find Miss Flirty quality of hair, in my color, that’s in a long weft, not already split for clips, that I can cut to the exact lengths I need. Do you sell uncut wefts? Thanks for everything! Pics soon!

  53. Audrey Dupuis says:

    i’m pretty sure you can do any kind of hair style 🙂 Except braiding can be a bit of a challenge.

  54. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yes – I would think so. I’m not a doc – lol – but I would think it would be TOTALLY fine.

  55. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Ok – for you- I will! 🙂 This will be coming up REAL soon – promise! 🙂

  56. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Hi! I will soon – hopefully! When I (occasionally) have hand tied available for sale – that is all in one weft…but hopefully I will carry machine wefted extensions too (no clips). Thx for the update and please keep me posted on your experience with tape ins! 🙂

  57. DiiJiiGii says:

    Hey, it’s me with my pesky question of the day! Yippee! You probably mention this in some video but it just occurred to me I may need a special shampoo for colored hair now that I’ve taped in hair that’s been colored! I always just use some 98cent brand cuz I like the scent! So, I ordered the organix coconut serum, but what shampoo do you recommend? Thanks?

  58. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Hi! You’re funny! I have been loving the: “Healthy Sexy Hair” Shampoo and Conditioner. Such amazing products!

  59. DiiJiiGii says:

    Thanks! I added it to my shopping card thru your amazon store on the blog along with the aussie 3 min miracle. I just found your amazon referral store! Love it! Which works better for you, ordering tape from yer ebay store or thru your amazon referral? Thanks!

  60. DiiJiiGii says:

    There is a youtube video for “protac tape in extensions” that’s a product designed to do the fold over tip from Meredith. She stacks the wefts on half the tape to connect two to three strips of one ply weft onto one piece of tape. With Walker tape you wouldn’t need liquid gold to adhere inside like she uses, but the video shows another option for making thicker wefts with less tape.

  61. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Well – the Amazon stopped their store referral program – so eBay is better for now! Thx for asking! 🙂

  62. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yay – fab – I’d love to see this- can you email me the link?

  63. Lisa Hernandez says:

    Thank you for all the information, I’d like to share with you an issue that I encountered with sandwiched in tape ins. I had them in about four weeks, when it was time to remove them I used C22 remover. The problem with that is that when the two tapes are glued together with hair in between the liquid has a problem seaping through the two tapes making it almost impossible to separate the tapes also you can’t grab the outer sides of the tape because the glue is broken down and it’s too sticky.

  64. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Hi Lisa – thank you for sharing! I have no experience with sandwiching – yet. Only the UN-sandwich technique…but for anyone doing it the way you do – I’m sure this helps…thanks! Did you find a solution to remove them that works better than C-22? I LOVE Weft Release. It has some alcohol in it – so it won’t be as slippery…

  65. ColdHeartedWorld666 says:

    Im so bummed I only just watched this video because I ordered the 1/4″ tape and my extensions are machine double wefted I’m pretty sure 🙁 I live in Australia so I don’t want to wait another 3 weeks for the 1/2″ to arrive, is it worth me trying to use the 1/4″ or should I start sewing my clips back on & wait for the 1/2″ to arrive?

  66. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Yes – try the 1/4″ still – you may be ok. Just be EXTRA gentle during first week with them 🙂

  67. Freda Davis says:

    One thing that I do, because I have oily hair, I will only wash the top part of my natural hair in the sink and I do not put conditioner on my roots. Just the ends. It covers the wefts, feels clean, best part!-you’re not compromising the extensions! 🙂

  68. 52weeksofbeauty says:

    Great tip! Yes – that certainly would help preserve them! 🙂

  69. FrmSyriaWithLuv says:

    Can I just thank you? I was just looking up new ways to style clip ins because I was tired of mine when I came across this. I was hesitant at first, but you seemed so passionate about it so I decided to give it a go and I’m glad I did. I’ve only had them in for about 3 weeks now and I’ve had no issues (*knocks on wood*) and I love them. It feels so natural I forget they’re in there. The only hard thing for me so far was installing them. It was very hard for me to make straight parts so I had to get my sister to make them for me. lol Love you!

  70. shortcake210382 says:

    what do you think about using dry shampoo in between washes

  71. Missy Weed says:

    I can’t find any extensions that match my hair. I have golden/honey blonde and I don’t want to dye my natural hair. Do you have any suggestions?

  72. lala stephens says:

    I’m a hair dresser and I provide tape in extensions…..your tips are great the only thing I would add for everyone with tape ins is if they are having problems with them coming out within the first few shampoos using a sulfate free shampoo will stop that….sulfate free is really the only way to go with tape ins and when u condition focus more on the ends and ur extension life will be twice as long!!!

  73. Two4OneMusic says:

    Please do a video on sandwich vs. unsandwiched method or folding. Thanks!

  74. Jessica Bonham says:

    I love all your videos im addicted to hair exensions. Will be trying your technique with 1/4 in soon on my friend I am a licensed cosmo.

  75. Jessica Bonham says:

    I love all your videos im addicted to hair exensions. Will be trying your technique with 1/4 in soon on my friend I am a licensed cosmo.

  76. DIANE Buffolino says:

    Just want to tell you I love all your videos….I’m addicted to hair extensions….I did the sandwich type and not happy…I prefer the fold-over method…I don’t know where to buy a weft of hair….I don’t want it with the clip-in…I just want the weft…Can you tell me where to purchase it? P.S.I just purchased The Extension Release Shampoo from your ebay site…It’s amazing….

  77. MommyLondon says:

    I posted this question on one of your other videos..I think maybe I should have posted it here instead…I had stated how I just now started using tape in hair extensions…The ease of putting them in is great..but I am very concerned about when I wash and condition my hair..If oil removes them so easily then wont my conditioner have the same effect when I am in the shower?

  78. MizzJ says:

    If you sandwich your hair like you are supposed to do, these wouldn’t be problems. The tape won’t be exposed at all creating stickiness in your hair, falling out due to the adhesive melting, etc. Look up other tape extension videos and do it right.

  79. Michelle Rivera says:

    you’re very helpful please, do a video on sandwich folding method.

  80. Laura Hughes says:

    I took the extension course in cosmetology school and my teacher actually recommended flat ironing a few seconds in the hair. It seals the adhessive and makes it last a little longer.

  81. rayne pinion says:

    I put the extension down and lay hair over it and then flat iron for a second just to heat glue up and fuse it with my hair better if you dont want to sandwich it. Extra security.

  82. Julieta Munoz says:

    How do you put in your extentions without being able to tell you have them in?. i put mine in one piece on bottom tape up thin hair over then place other piece against it. but its uncomfortable. so how do u make it look natural full witithout seeing my real hair ocer take because it looks like only my back is done and i look like i have a mullet. please help me put these in correctly so they look more natural

  83. fairysa K says:

    for those who want a to do the sandwich method you also can do only the top part of the tape hair both sides and the under piece not so you have sandwich without the stickynis on the under piece but only on the upper piece , so you have just the stikckyness just on the upper piece and not on the under piece, also this way it would not be sticky on your scalp but just on the upper piece while the hair sticks on the hair at the upper piece so you cant see the rows, this way you will benefit of the sandwich method but also the un-sandwich method, i hope i explaind it good 😛 xoxo loves

  84. stefanie ornelas says:

    Where do you buy your hair? I’ve looked at 1,000,000 sites….. :/

  85. Cyara Pina says:

    I have EXREMELY thick hair. So I’d have to sandwich them, would it be okay to do so with your diy method? Jw.
