1 Wet the extensions. If you try to detangle your extensions while they’re dry, you may cause breakage and shedding. Wash the extensions with water and your usual shampoo, rinsing well to ensure that there are no suds left behind.
2.Apply a detangling conditioner to the extensions. The extensions will be even easier to detangle if you treat them with a conditioner. Massage a detangling conditioner into the extensions and rinse them clean with lukewarm to cool water.
3.Separate your natural hair from sewn - or glued-in extensions. You’re more likely to tug and damage the extensions - and your natural hair - if you try to detangle them in one mass.
Once your natural hair is out of the way, it's a good idea to divide the extensions in smaller sections before detangling. That will minimize the pulling and tugging on them.
4.Divide clip-in extensions into individual wefts. Even if your extensions aren't sewn or glued in, you can damage them if you try to detangle them all at once. Separate the extensions into the individual wefts so you can get the tangles out more easily.
You may want to divide larger wefts into two or three sections for easier detangling.
5.Moisturize the extensions with a light oil. If your hair extensions are smooth and moisturized, they’re less likely to tangle. To keep your extensions properly hydrated, massage a small amount of a light hair oil into them at least once a week. Argan, coconut, castor, olive, and jojoba oils are all good options.
If your extensions are sewn or glued in or you wear them everyday, you should apply the oil daily.
