The deep wave tape-in hair extensions are dramatically delicious!
If the water wave texture wavier than the body wave texture; then the deep wave texture goes further...in fact, you'd be right in saying that it goes... deeper.
The wave pattern differs from the water wave pattern by having higher peaks and deeper troughs which makes the waves... well... um....deep.
As there are so many variations of wave patterns in the world of hair extensions, it's hard to say exactly which natural wave pattern would seamlessly blend with deep wave tape-in hair extensions.
Wave patterns are created with the use of (perming) moulds (plastic rods) and as different manufacturers use different sized rods, it means that there are different sized waves on the market.
This means that it's down to you to decide if you can make your own natural texture of hair match up with the texture of tape extensions you choose.
Always make sure when buying online that the retailer allows hair extensions to be returned.
Deep wave tape extensions are available in lengths ranging from 8-26 inches. Longer lengths are available you might have to treat finding them like a geocaching... look for the clues and don't give up, you'll eventually find them.
When choosing the length of wavy tape extensions (or any type of hair extensions), it's good to remember that the length quoted is the length of the hair when straight (stretched) - there's a measurement guide that shows this this.
If you're unsure about which hair lengths complement which face shapes, then check out our wigs by face shape guide - yes it says wigs but in reality it's more about face shapes and hair lengths.
Deep wave tape-in extensions usually come in sets of 20 or 40 pieces.
Each multi-piece set is a single length - no multi-length sets available, but who's to say that won't change at some point.
The most prevalent colours are darker from black to medium browns, but don't worry; the majority of hair extensions can be dyed (although this frequently means lifting the colour first to ultimately achieve colours like blondes and coppers).
If you're unsure which colours would complement your skin tone, why not check out our guide to hair extension colours and skin tones.
You can peruse Peruke’s guide to Caring for Tape In Hair for an overview of daily styling, combs and brushes for tape-in hair and use the following five top tips to get started.
1. As the hair has been chemically treated to achieve texture, it's better limit the use of heat straighteners as frequent use can sometimes damage the wave pattern and the hair.
3. You can use a nourishing hair oil to damp hair.
4. Keep the hair moisturised with a mineral oil free moisturizer to keep to prevent it from becoming dry.
5. You can try a dry shampoo and avoid getting any hair extension styling products anywhere near the adhesive as it can cause the glue to disintegrate and possibly mat with your growth hair.
That's the whole deal on deep wave tape-in hair extensions.
