The first step should be wetting the extensions, trying to detangle them while dry will cause a lot of shedding and breakage. Make sure you use an alcohol-free shampoo for your Human Hair Weave or extensions.

Add a deep conditioner to close the hair cuticle, which opens after shampooing. It softens and smoothes the hair, and you can now start detangling it.

2. Get a wide-toothed Comb

Now that the hair is soft, it’s ready for detangling. Get a wide-toothed comb to reduce shedding and breakage. Separate it into small sections and comb it gently until you are done with all the parts.

A brush and your fingers will come in handy. They help you prevent harsh tugging, which causes a lot of hair breakage.

3. Taking Care of Your Hair

After you have successfully detangled your Human Hair Extensions, learn a few ways to take care of it and avoid tangling. Here are tips of how you should take care of your hair.

Taking Care of Hair
  • Protect your hair while sleeping by using a satin pillow and make sure the hair is dry before you go to bed. You can also tie a satin scarf to prevent frizz and tangles as you sleep.
  • Brush your hair daily with a brush that has natural bristles. Skipping this simple hair care step is one of the common causes of tangled extensions. Do this about three times a day along with your natural hair if the extension is glued or sewn-in to keep the hair tangle-free.
  • Braid the extensions, especially if they are long. This prevents tangling, but the braiding has to be done gently, especially if they are clip-in human braids. If they are sewn or glued, braid them along with your hair.
  • Make sure all your styling products are alcohol-free. Human Hair Extensions are affected by dehydrating products, just like natural hair. Alcohol is a dehydrating product and affects hair cuticles leading to tangles and snags.
  • Use a moisturizing oil to keep your extensions smooth and silky. Use light oil at least once per week; such oils include olive, jojoba, castor, coconut, and argan oils.
