How do tape extensions feel?

I have naturally thick hair and clip in extensions hurt my head. My hair is too soft for them. They try to slip right out so I have to tease them. A lot of problems with glue.... so I will be making my own tape ins. Is this a good idea? Will they be too heavy? Maintenance? Ummmmmmm my hair is so thick it won't grow past alittle past my collar bone. Is it too short? I have to dye them. Any other details would be nice. Thank you.

    I do not recommend them, specially if you've got thin or thinning hair, trying to grow hair or Afri-Amer. They will only make your hair thinner or hair falls.

    May 22, 2011: Model and businesswoman Katie Price, who was formerly topless model Jordan, is demanding compensation from a top Los Angeles hair salon after she spent $17,000 on hair colourings and extensions that she claims were botched, leaving her hair so damaged it began falling out.

    "Hair extensions can cause some damage to your real hair," says Placid Braganza, a design artiste. "Since they are attached using thermal heat, knotting, braiding or gluing, they can hamper hair roots or even break, split or burn hair strands if not done carefully," he adds.

    Published 8-10-12: Even supermodels have bad hair days, but from the looks of this recent photo, Naomi Campbell appears to be dealing with something far worse.

    A photo of the 42-year-old beauty vacationing in Ibiza earlier this week shows what appears to be a receding hairline.

    Florida hair surgeon Dr. Alan Bauman, who has not treated Campbell, said the former supermodel appears to be suffering from traction alopecia — hair loss due to extensions.

    “Extensions, weaves, anything artificial hanging on hair — no matter whether you attach it with glue, special magnets, tape — it’s going to cause damage over time,” Bauman told ABCNews.com. “And unless you give your hair a break from those extensions, it won’t rebound.”

    Bonding: Bonding or gluing is a temporary weaving method and usually involves longer hair wefts.

    Plus points: This method is quick to do.

    Red flags: Hair extensions attached by this method do not last too long.

    Clip-on hair extensions give you a change of look without damaging your natural hair. "They are easy and quick to apply; usually taking five to seven minutes," says beauty expert, Sylvia Chen. "Moreover, in case you're not very comfortable, you can immediately pull them out," she adds.

    Red flags: These clip-on hair extensions need to be removed before you go to bed. You cannot sleep or swim with these. So you may not want to opt for them if you're planning to wear them on a daily basis; you'd have to follow the routine of attaching them every morning and removing them before sleeping. Moreover, they may also lead to hair breakage while removing the clips; some even tend to tangle and fall apart after a few days.

    Traction alopecia is hair loss that occurs as a result of continuous pulling of the hair. Pulling may occur from hairstyles such as tight cornrows, plaits or braids with or without extensions, weaves, ponytails or even hair rollers or curlers. Natural hairstyles can also lead to traction alopecia as well. Long heavy locks and tightly coiled twists can lead to traction alopecia. The hair loss associated with traction alopecia typically occurs at the frontal hairline, at the temples or the area of the scalp above the ears. It may also occur at the posterior hairline.

    I have short hair for the first time since We was 10 years old and I actually really like it but I overlook my long curly locks so Now i'm growing it back out!

    For me, short. you see, hair like jared leto's appear too effortless and sometimes even oily. Shortcuts are more fun to play with and some sttles look far better on them.
