How to Safely Brush Your Hair Extensions

Maintaining your hair extensions requires more than just their initial application.

Proper care is crucial to ensure you make the most out of your investment. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to elevate your care routine and safely brush your extensions to extend their lifespan.

The Right Brush

Opt for an extension-safe brush, such as a wet brush designed to untangle hair and extensions delicately, without any tension or pulling.

Brushing Technique: Precision is Key

Approach brushing with precision. Focus on each row individually, avoiding contact with the top of your wefts – the anchor of your extensions – to prevent unnecessary strain.

Step 1: Moisturize

Prepare your extensions by lightly misting them with leave-in conditioner or a detangling spray. This preps the wefts for seamless brushing.

Step 2: Start at the Bottom

Brush from the ends of your extensions, working your way upwards with patience and care.

Step 3: Provide Support

While brushing, provide additional support by holding the base of your hair or the top of the extension rows. This reduces any strain on your natural hair.

Consistency is Key: Daily Brushing Routine

Embrace consistency by incorporating a daily brushing routine.

Dedicate a few moments, 2-3 times a day, to gently brush your extensions – we recommend purchasing a travel brush to keep in your bag so you can brush throughout the day. Follow these straightforward steps to ensure your extensions look and feel fresh throughout the day.
