BRUSHING THEM ALL OUT
Just like we can forget to brush our own hair sometimes, it may slips our minds to brush our extensions.
It is very important to remove any knots or tangles in your hair because when your extensions are silky and smooth, it allows the hair to run through straighteners or curling irons without being damaged.
We recommend brushing your extensions twice a day. It is very simple and it will definitely be worth your time.
CHANGE YOUR SHAMPOO
Let us guess, your shampoo is the best thing you have ever used and it makes your hair softer than ever? Well it may be time for a change if you want to properly protect those extensions.
It is important to use a light shampoo and conditioner that is packed with moisture. This will keep the hair looking healthy and prevent the wear and tear. But while you are conditioning your hair, make sure you are only moisturizing the ends of the hair and not pulling your extensions out!
