When you have tape-in hair extensions, one of the most important things you need to do is to brush your extensions at least twice a day. This will help get rid of the tangles you may have or prevent future tangles from occurring.
You might not know this, but there are a few steps you should be following when brushing your extensions. These steps are to help prevent your wefts from being pulled off.
When brushing your extensions follow these 4 easy steps:
1. Have a firm grasp of your natural hair and extensions near the bottom of the tape tabs.
2. Holding on to your tape tabs, use a wide toothcomb and gently brush your hair starting from the bottom of your tape-in extensions to get the tangles out.
3. While still holding onto your tape tabs firmly, slowly continue moving upwards towards your scalp. You want to be sure that you have a tight grasp around your tape so you don’t snag a tangle and cause a bond to become loose.
4. When you have brushed all of your tangles out, use a looper brush to get in between the bonds. Regular brushes could potentially rip off the bonds, which could be a mess to clean up.
Avoid winter static in your extensions by rubbing you hair with a dryer sheet! (You can also place a dryer sheet on your comb or brush to help tame it too)
Before bed, place your hair in a loose, low ponytail or braid. This will prevent it from becoming a rats nest overnight, making it easier to keep your extensions looking great during the day!
If you follow these four steps, your tape-in extensions will be looking soft and tangle free all day, everyday!
