Tangled extensions seem like a nightmare! Tangled hair extensions are a common problem. Just like your natural hair, it requires special attention and care. The frequency of brushing, wind and hair texture are a few reasons why your extensions are tangling a lot. Don’t let these knots and tangles spoil your good hair day! Take a look at these simple hair tips to prevent tangling.
1. Avoid Harsh Chemicals
Harsh chemicals are a big no-no for hair extensions. Using them consistently can cause severe damage and breakage. Girls, remember that damaged hair is more likely to tangle.
2. Use A Wide-Toothed Comb
Make sure you comb your extensions at least three times a day. This will keep it tangle-free without much effort. We recommend using a wide-toothed comb to reduce breakage.
Gently comb your extension and avoid tugging too hard, as it will damage them.
Pro Tip: Use good quality hair extensions from Darling, which can be easily detangled. Gently detangle it with your own fingers.
3. Deep Conditioning
This is a must! Deep condition your extensions the same way you would for your natural hair, to reduce tangles and knots. Conditioning will restore the moisture, leaving your extensions smooth and nourished.
4. Detangle In Sections
This is important if you are detangling your extensions while they are sewn in. Divide it into multiple small sections and detangle systematically. Large sections can cause harsh tugging, which will ultimately lead to breakage.
5. How To Sleep
If you take good care of your extensions in the day, make sure you protect them while you sleep. Dry it up completely before going to bed. Use a satin pillowcase to minimalize dryness and damage or tie a satin scarf while sleeping to save yourself from tangles, frizz and breakage.
