The Perfect Pair: Removing Hair Extensions

Perfect Pair: Duo-Pro & No Trace

The One-Two Punch You Need for Removing Tape-In Extensions


As our wholesale customers may already be aware of, we mention two removers by name on our catalog’s Tips page. There’s a reason for that. The following blog post spells out this very reason.


In the catalog, we make our preferences clear. “We consider No Trace our best choice.” This is what it says in the Tips section dealing with our removers. Soon after that, we make our second suggestion: “And we suggest Weft Release for removing tape from wefts.”


Why We Consider No Trace Our Best Hair Extension Remover


  • Releases tape-ins fast
  • Leaves behind zero residue


In the beauty industry, there tend to be two main options for adhesive removers. There are alcohol-based removers and oil-based removers. Both options have their upsides, and it really comes down to your preference as a stylist. 


Some stylists love how quickly oil-based removers get the job done. While alcohol options tend to work the bond loose at a slower pace, some stylists still prefer them because of how easy the cleanup is. By easy, we mean that alcohol removers can require zero cleanup at all. Instead of leaving behind oily residue, they evaporate completely.


At Beautify, we give stylists choices between alcohol and oil removers. But we consider No Trace our very best option because it combines the best traits of both alcohol-and oil-based solvents. No Trace breaks down tape bonds as fast as an oil-based remover. But since No Trace is alcohol-based, it then vanishes without any cleanup effort on your part.


This was no accident either. We specifically created No Trace to cater to what stylists like most when it comes to their go-to removers. The achievement of No Trace is that now stylists have the best of both worlds all in one innovative product.


Why We Suggest Weft Release for Removing Tape from Tape-In Extension Wefts


  • Prepares extensions for the best retape hold times 
  • Offers the most affordable way to ready retape wefts


Out of our four remover options, Weft Release is currently our only specialty remover. We designed it to do one job, and that’s to remove the tape from an extension in preparation for a retape. Weft Release does this job fantastically because it actually helps to ready the weft for a new tape install.


As an oil-based solvent, Weft Release breaks down the adhesive buildup quickly. Since our tapes are meant to hold for between four to six weeks, there’s going to be some residue built up. So, it’s relieving to see how well Weft Release works to break down what’s left over from the tape. It works fast, and rinses off easily for an oil-based option. In fact, Weft Release leaves a surprisingly little amount of oily residue.


But the main reason we suggest using Weft Release is that it gets the weft ready to be retaped. Its solution breaks down all the adhesive, leaving you with a clean weft surface for best retape results. Of course, it also helps that Weft Release happens to be the most affordable option, making your retape appointments more worthwhile than ever!


The Powerful Magic of Using Both of These Hair Extension Removers Together


So, when you use both these products in your retape appointments, you’re giving yourself and your client the best experience during removal. No Trace allows you to offer clients the fastest, easiest removal process, keeping them comfortable while in your chair. Then, Weft Release clears the extension wefts for the best retape results. 


The bottom line here is that these two removers used together lead you to the most satisfied returning clientele.


Of course, since they are different, they have slightly different directions for use.


Directions for No Trace

  • Apply to the area you want to remove.
  • Wait 10 seconds, then begin working the bond loose.
  • Apply more as needed.


Directions for Weft Release

  • Apply to the removed weft’s tape area.
  • Wait 1 minute, then start working the bond loose.
  • When complete, rinse weft with soap and water.
