To ensure your hair extensions stay looking great for as long as possible, it is important to know how to properly care for them. Brushing is of great importance as it encourages natural shedding and ensures no matting occurs at the root area.
We have compiled 5 simple and effective tips, How to Brush Your Hair With Extensions, to make your hairstyle always look perfect.
- Choose the «right comb»
Brushes with round tips or too hard combs can tear out extended strands.
The best option is to use Janeke brush. This comb has two types of bristles: nylon and boar bristles.
Nylon gently untangles hair, and boar bristles give your hair a soft shine and silkiness as if you had just done a spa treatment for your locks.
- Follow the right technique
Extended curls require proper care. Hold your hair with one hand as if you want to make a loose low tail, and detangle it with the other. If you comb loose strands, you risk breakage or even pulling the extension out.
The correct combing technique is from tips to roots. This prevents putting too much stress on the hair and gently removes the knots. At the area of tapes, bonds, or tress fixation, try to comb as carefully as possible. In the end, check the bonds or tapes to ensure that they did not slip during combing.
- Brush regularly
You should comb the curls after waking up, during the day, as needed, as well as before bed.
Do not forget to make a loose braid before bed. This will protect your hair from tangling.
- Comb the curls before washing your head
In this way, you will remove the hairs that have fallen out, which can tangle your strands during washing.
To comb the hair after washing, remove excess water with a towel and comb them according to the same scheme we described above. The key is to be gentle with the process.
When blow-drying, avoid using too high temperatures in the area of bonds or tapes fixation – they can unravel and slide off.
- Don’t forget to clean your hairbrush
This should be done at least once a week, to remove all dirt and styling product residues.
