#5 Rough Handling Extensions
Alright so Don’t #5 goes hand-in-hand with the last one, but this time we’re talking about the link for the hair.
When handling your extensions, you should treat them the same way you would your hair. Always comb from the bottom up. Some of us may know that rule but do we really follow it? Just think of all the times you’re in a hurry and you just run a brush through your hair and walk out the door.
Did you brush your hair from the bottom to the top? Probably not. Think about how hard you had to brush your hair and how much hair you left behind in your brush. If you’re anything like me, seeing strands of hair all over the place makes me want to cry (dramatic, sure but I pay good money for my inches!)
Comb your extensions from the bottom to the top until you hit the bottom of the knots instead of above them. This makes the detangling way easier. Doing it this way will also help stop shedding and ripping out large chunks of your extensions. Invest in a brush with narrow, widely spaced teeth.
Also, stop combing your extensions while they’re wet. This is a point when they’re most fragile and prone to breakage and split ends, not to mention they will tangle even worse. Try just using your fingers instead, separating any knots from the tips and work your way up.
