How I Tape-In Hair at Home
It gets to a point and then stops growing and goes dead at the ends. It's just something I've had to deal with my whole life so I like to put in hair extensions for length and volume.
I don't put professional extension installation in my budget for self-care, I'd rather use that chunk of change on something else. I choose to do it myself because I find it's easy to install at home.
Clip-ins pull and snag, micro-beads slip and hurt for a few days. I just find tape is the best bet.
I personally like 20-inch length human hair.
Use whatever brand you like whether it's Bellami, Pro Hair, or Zala but I use these Lab-eh ones per recommendation from a friend because of the affordable price and quality. It also comes with a set of lashes with every box, which I buy two per round.
I just got two sets for $67 total (here's where I get them)
Pro Hair & Zala are both around $120 and Bellami is premium pricing.

Tip: You will want clean, dry, and straightened hair so you don't have oil or product that might prevent the tape from sticking properly, and flat ironed to make taping in place less work.
Trust me, it's much much easier this way.
