Brushing Your Way to Extension Perfection: How to Correctly Brush Your Hair Extensions

how to correctly brush your hair extensions

Hair extensions are an excellent addition to your look, providing volume, length, and lustre to your natural hair. However, you need to maintain them. The proper use of hair extension tools and aftercare products not only increases their lifespan but also ensures that they continue to look as good as the day you first wore them.

Choose the right brush.

Choosing the right brush is foundational to maintaining your hair extensions. Rather than a standard hairbrush, opt for a meeting specially designed for hair extensions. These brushes typically have soft, looped bristles that glide effortlessly through the hair without tugging on the bonds, tape, or micro rings. They're perfect for detangling, reducing shedding, and minimising damage to your extensions. Investing in a high-quality hair extension brush is a small step that can make a world of difference in your hair extension care routine.

Brush before washing and bedtime.

A cardinal rule in hair extension aftercare that is often overlooked is brushing before washing your hair and before hitting the hay. This is crucial as it helps to untangle any knots that might have formed during the day and prevent the tangling that can happen when washing. Remember to be gentle and ensure you're using your hair extension brush properly. Start from the ends and work your way up to the roots, never the other way around. This tip, although simple, is a game changer and can significantly extend the life of your extensions whilst maintaining their shine.
