MVP tape hair tabs are hypo allergenic and are almost invisible to the eye. Perfect for fine hair tapes lays flat to the head with ultimate comfort for the end user and no visibility when wearing hair up (with correct placement). The beauty of this method is the speed a full head fitting can be completed, often advertised as a lunch hour hair transformation. With so many benefits to this fast discrete method it’s no wonder tape in hair is so popular.
Tape hair will need removal, re tape and refit every 4 to 6 weeks. It is quick and easy to re tape the hair with Routes pre cut tape tabs (link).
How much hair is needed for a full head:
Only a qualified hair extension specialist should decide how many strands or grams would be suitable for your hair by carrying out a consultation. However we have added an approximate guide below:
Fine hair full head: 125g ( x 5 packs )
Average thickness hair: 150g ( 6 x packs )
Thick hair: 200g ( x 8 packs )
The most superior quality hair extensions yet! Aptly named MVP it’s the most valuable professional hair (official awards pending).
Softer, silkier hair than the Luxury and PG range and only sourced from ponytail cut hair ensuring the cuticles are aligned (Remy hair). All MVP hair is 100% Virgin Human Hair meaning prior to our factory processing the hair has never before been chemically processed. New technology and advanced products have allowed our partner factory to process the hair with more natural ingredients and less chemical processing. This ensures the hair retains its softness and strength and is what gives the hair its longer lifespan. The hair is drawn many times to remove shorter hairs to give thickness right to the ends.
MVP hair has an approximate lifespan of 12 to 18 months (up to 12 months for light blondes) tests have proven many cases have longer lifespans reported.
The lifespan of hair extensions is always dependant upon the end users lifestyle. The above guide is only as there is no definite lifespan due to hair extensions being a perishable product thats longevity depends greatly on the care of the user and the lifestyle of the user.
Our guide is based on sole use of the full range of Routes aftercare including:
Routes Hair Extension Shampoo
Routes Hair Extension Conditioner
Routes Protein Spray
Use of any alternative aftercare products will likely severely reduce the lifespan and will void any quality guarantee once fitted.
Ethically purchased at the top market value to ensure donors are fairly compensated. Hair is only purchased from consenting adults to ensure there is no underpaying nor child exploitation in practice. Sourced from the Mongolia / North China border.
We always advertise with full disclosure and integrity and we always recommend customers to fully be informed of the true description of what they are purchasing. Many brands are falsely advertising hair as Russian/Mongolian hair when there is simply no such thing. For more info on this topic please visit the Advice/FAQ page and scroll to “ Where do hair extensions actually come from?”.
Aside from the strict selection process at the source, our factory will perform many quality control tests to ensure the hair meets the standard for MVP Hair. After each step of processing from bleaching to colouring there will be testing carried out to ensure the hair still has its cuticles in tact and that the processing has had minimal damage to the hair. Hairs that have their cuticles stripped or damaged enough to effect the quality or lifespan of the hair is discarded at this stage and will not be packaged or sold by Routes Hair.
After processing tests are completed the hair is drawn to remove shorter or loose hairs. An inspection is carried out to check the ratio of thickness is correct for MVP Hair.
Checks are then made to ensure the hair colour matches the shade on the colour ring to ensure that any difference is so minimal it is not visible. If hair is a different tone to it’s matching colour swatch on the colour ring it is removed from the product line and will not be packaged for sale.
Once the method is determined (either weft, tapes or nanos) and attached the hair is then weighed per piece and per pack to ensure that every single gram is present.
Once the hair reaches our warehouse we then repeat the quality control checks on colour matching the shade swatch, the weight per pack and length correct as advertised. Anything that isn’t just so or hair that in any way feels defective does not reach out picking stations and is returned to the factory.
