How to Remove Tape Extensions


  • Section any natural hair away from the row of extensions you are removing, simply by using any big clip.
  • Hold the root of the hair with 2 fingers, above the ring itself, and then safely, using pliers open the ring in the opposite direction it’s currently in.
    Once the ring is open you can then pull gently on the extension and it will slide out with the ring.
  • Repeat this step for the whole row.
    Then using your fingers, tease apart any knots and gently comb out any buildup or remaining knots with a pintail comb.
  • After removing all of the extensions, wash hair thoroughly twice, follow this with a nice mask or treatment to give the hair some tender loving care!
  • Normally we advise hair extensions should not be removed by clients themselves. The extensions must be removed with the help of a trained professional


Step 1: You should start removing the extensions from bottom base of the neck and gradually work towards the top. Remember to handle the sides at the end. For easy access clip away and section the remaining hair.

Step 2: Take the extension pliers and hold the ring tightly. Squeeze them in the direction opposite to what they are flattened. At first start apply light pressure, if the rings do not loosen then exert a little more pressure. The rings will widen gradually. After that the hair will come out easily and you can slip out the rings. 

Step 3: At the place where the extension was installed you may find little cluster of old hair. This is completely normal so you need not worry about them but you should carefully comb the hair so that you do not face any problem when y wash your clients  hair. You should not comb directly but slowly prise apart the hair. The tangles should be loosened slowly so that the hair is not damaged, ideally start with your fingers and then use a wide tooth comb for this process.
Step 4: After removing the cluster you can comb the hair properly. You have to keep patience and do this for each extension one by one. Note that in a day we normally lose around 150 hairs. Again this is nothing to worry about, it’s completely normal.

While doing the whole procedure you must be very careful as if you wish to hurry then you may not be able to remove all of them. The nano rings are very small and you need to be careful during each and every step that you take.
