Difference Between Skin Weft And Tape Hair Extensions

As mentioned above, skin weft is a type of tape-in hair extensions. Both of them are easy to use and hassle-free to put in your natural hair. 

You can use skin wefts and tape hair extensions to make beauty your hair and update your look. In Layla, they are made of 100% Remy hair.

Here are some differences between skin weft and tape hair extensions:

Skin Weft Tape Extensions

Skin weft is also known as a method that uses custom cut sections of hair that are sandwiched into 2 sections, then attached to your scalp with tapes or glues. 

When you look at a skin weft, you can notice there is no shiny panel across the top. In other words, skin wefts look more naturally than tape extensions. Only human hairs are running all the way to the top then threaded through a hidden section. After installing, the extensions look like natural hair growing straight from the scalp.

Wearers can tie skin weft extensions in a ponytail and even no one would ever know that you are wearing extensions. This type of tape-in extensions is particularly useful for those with finer hair.

In case your roots are a deeper color than the end, you can color the extension to match and create a seamless, perfect blend. 

Tape-in Extensions

In contrast, traditional tape extensions cannot be colored in this top section because of the glue panel. Besides, no heat or tools required for an application.

Using tape-in hair extensions is pretty simple, but you have to remove your tape frequently whenever new growth appears. The action of removing and replacing them over and over again can damage your tape-ins and your own hair. It means that the faster your hair grows, the more frequently you have to move tape-ins up, and the more damage you have to suffer.

Now, you take your bulk hair and start placing it on the glue. Try not to have much hair high above the glue. You can use a brush handle to flatten the hair into position.

Keep adding your hair until you are satisfied with the length and the thickness of a skin weft. You can also add hair in different colors to create highlights if you want. 

Next, prepare another piece of tape, longer than the first one and apply glue it on it. Sandwich both together and press. 

When you have the thickness of skin weft, it’s time to cut it into shape. Remember to cut the extra sides and top to make it neat. 

Finally, you use a flat iron to warm up the glue and keep pressing. Now, you’ll end up with nice and flat skin weft.
