Brushing your extensions is a regular upkeep kind of thing, something you should remember to do often, right and with the help of a good tool. Soft bristle brush or pro, Looper brush will, therefore, be perfect for that job, helping you detangle your hair without damaging it. Patience and care – that’s all there is to it. Start at the bottom, as you would with your natural hair, detangling that area first before you move up to work on the top sections. Be gentle with your extensions too, as pulling may cause serious breakage.
Washing is crucial for the proper maintenance of hair extensions and there are a couple of rules to follow to make sure they continue on looking good. First- detangle before shampooing, second – use a good shampoo and third (and maybe the most important of all) - take it slow. Wet your extensions bit by bit to prevent tangling using a downward motion when shampooing and rinsing them. You can, of course, follow up with a wide-toothed comb in case they start to knot but you must be super-gentle.
A nice, nourishing leave-in conditioner will be a perfect follow up for your hair-extensions maintenance routine. Spray it on or work it in using the same downward motion, brush out any remaining tangles carefully and voila – your hair pieces are ready to be left to dry. No need to apply a whole lot of nourishing products at once as this could put your extensions at risk of being over-conditioned which normally isn’t a good thing at all as it will make them look dull and limp as well as cause them to get dirty again at a much faster rate, not to mention the extra tangles you’ll have to deal with.
4.) AIR DRY
Being 30 minutes early when it comes to washing your hair and letting it dry fully will save you at least as much time in the morning as you won’t have to deal with tangles and odd creases resulting of sleeping with semi-wet hair.
