Use Natural Oil For Zero Damage
In case, you don’t have any remover, you can still remove the tapes by using hair oil alternatively. You should use natural hair oils instead of chemically based products to keep your hair strands healthy. We recommend you some types of natural oils such as coconut oil, olive oil or baby oil.

Each method has its own way, also when using peanut butter, you need to leave it on your head for at least 30 minutes until your hair absorb it. The final goal of all methods is to break the glue and tape bonds to remove the tapes from your natural hair. The natural oil from the peanut butter can also do this like almond oil or baby oil does.
Use An Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover
If there’s no extension remover or oil available, you can alter by using a nail polish remover. All you need to do is to make sure that it’s free of acetone. To do this, first, put some drops of the sides of the tape bonds. When the tape starts to separate from your real hair, gradually peel it off from the edge of your mane. If you find it’s hard to peel off, put more polish remover on it.
