If you have a curly textured hair, do not comb the hair too often, as these kinds of hair are more prone to frizz when brushing. Use your fingers to freshen it up and make it look nice again after taking it off. If you have long hair, instead of going straight from the top to the bottom with the comb in one stroke, start from the top from the bottom working in sections. Notice that you will have to go through the same strand of hair a few times in order to get tangles out without damaging or breaking; make sure not to pull too hard or force through stubborn tangles, as this can lead to breakage! Patience and gentleness is key when combing your long hair.
5. Do not sleep or shower with hair extensions
Do not sleep with your hair extensions on, as this can cause damage, breakage, and tangling due to friction from moving around while sleeping. Also, while it is always good to keep your it clean, make sure to never wear it in the shower! If you want to clean it, follow the above instructions for shampooing and conditioning with the appropriate, hair extension- specific products and techniques.
6. Hair tangling or shedding
If your extension is tangled up after long- term use, do not pull the hair or force through stubborn knots; spray some specially made, non-oily conditioner meant for hair use and comb it with a wide- tooth comb or your fingers, slowly and gently working from the top to the ends. Keep in mind that slight shedding or strands breaking off is normal, just like when brushing your natural hair, so if you see this, do not panic!
When you are not wearing it, store it in the original packaging. When you are ready to take it out and wear it again, gently shake it out and the locks will fall into place as they were when you originally unpacked it as long as you have been taking care of it properly.
