Hair Care Tips: Brush It Sis

Brushing your hair everyday is key, even if you plan on wearing a bonnet all day... BRUSH YOUR HAIR SIS. 

Brushing your hair is the simplest way to increase your wear time (wig life span), trust me.

Here are a few tips on how to brush your hair properly:

1. Start at the ends of the hair.

2. Place your free hand a couple of inches above where you’re brushing, and hold the hair firmly in that spot (to avoid tugging on the bonds or the roots).

3. Brush in a downward motion, coaxing (not tearing) out knots.

4. Gradually work upwards towards the roots of the hair, always brushing in a downward motion.

Key Rules:

– Use an extension-friendly, 100% human hair bristle brush to brush your extensions, as it will unravel knots and spread hydrating oils while gliding smoothly over your attachment points.

– Do not brush dripping-wet hair. Wet hair is more likely to break than dry hair. Instead, pull apart knots in wet hair with your fingers, or use a wide-tooth comb as a preliminary detangler.

– Do not yank the brush through the hair. Doing so will cause breakage. Address knots by pulling them apart with your fingers.

– Brush hair extensions 1-3 times daily to ensure that the oils from your scalp are reaching the extension ends.
