Kinesiology Tape Removal? Application Instructions
Following this removal procedure will allow for a more pleasant removal process:
- Apply baby oil, soap, or hair conditioner at least 5 minutes before removing the tape. These products will help soften the adhesive, making tape removal a more pleasant experience. Getting the tape wet and/or removing it in the shower can also help.
- Peel one end of the tape so that your fingers can grip a corner. Lift in the direction of hair growth (typically, away from the body).
- Keep the skin taut while removing tape. Another effective removal method is to roll the long side of the tape with the palm of your hand, across the long edge of the tape.
