First of all, locate the junction points of the extensions and your own hair. If you tie up your hair with clips, you can see the tapes with ease.

After locating the tapes, sprinkle ample amount of sheen oil on them. Don’t be miser, but be generous while sprinkling it. Scanty amount of sheen oil will work poorly. Because of the sheen oil the tape will be loosened, so you have to use the oil in plenty to the extent of making the tapes saturated with it.

You can also apply hair grease to your natural hair in case you are finding it very difficult to remove the extensions. When you apply hair grease, you better wind and shake the extensions so as to remove them. If while removing the extensions you feel that your own hair are getting pulled, you should keep on applying grease till the tapes are removed easily without any pull on your natural hair.

It may happen that even after this, not all the tapes are removed and some of them stay back. Wash hair using cold water. Scrub the head fairly vigorously, but take care not to hurt the hair roots. Use shampoo amply till hair are absolutely clean. Never use hot water for the wash as it will melt the adhesive on the tape so as to make it still persistent. On the contrary, cold water solidifies the glue and thus finishes its adhesiveness.

Even while drying your hair after the wash, use cold setting, as hot blow will do the same effect as that of hot water if there are still some flake of tapes remaining in the hair. After drying the hair, comb them thoroughly to remove the last bits and pieces of the tape if there are any.

You will have to remember to be patient while removing your tape-in remy hair extensions and you will achieve mastery in it definitely.

      Olive oil is the best to use for removing the glue. Mix half quantity of olive oil and half quantity of water and apply for best and quick results. :)

      Does it matter what oil you use? Do they all have the same effect?
