Stop Hair Extensions From Tangling
How To Minimize Tangling
All hair, including hair extensions, tangle. Some hair textures are more prone to matting and tangling than others. There are, some things you can do to minimize the tangling and breakage that comes from it. Here are some tips:
Condition Your Hair
Conditioning the hair will restore moisture back into the hair, leaving it smoother and less likely to tangle. We recommend to always condition your hair after washing, as well as using a deep conditioning mask every one or two weeks. If wearing curly hair extensions washing with only a conditioner instead of a shampoo will bring your curls back to life.
The Wider The Comb The Better
Using a wide tooth comb or a special detangling brush is your best bet when detangling your hair. Using these combs will remove the tangles more efficiently, while also protecting your hair from breakage and damage. Start at the ends of the extensions and work your way up until it is combed out and tangle free.
Brush Your Hair Consistently
Brush your hair as many times a day as needed using a soft detangling brush or wide tooth comb. The more you comb your hair the less it matting will occur.
Protect Your Hair While You Sleep
Sleeping without a scarf and not brushing your hair will create the most amount matting, this is because when you sleep you’re moving around causing a lot of friction on your hair. Sleeping with dry hair is best vs sleeping with wet hair is extremely delicate and is much more prone to frizzing and even worse breaking.

- Split hair in manageable sections when detangling.
