You’ve probably been brushing your hair ever since you were a young girl.
Maybe your mama even told you that you had to brush your hair 100 strokes every night to make it beautiful, and taking her literally, you’d sit in front of your bedroom mirror dutifully counting out 1...2...3…
But that was then, and this is now.
You’re a grown woman and ain’t nobody got time for counting out a hundred brush strokes!
In fact, you may not have time for brushing your hair period! If you’re going to get the most out of your virgin hair extensions, however, you’re going to have to get reacquainted with your BFF the hair brush.
First, You Need A Brush That’s Designed For Virgin Hair Extensions
No, all brushes aren’t created equal. The brushes that work on your natural hair may be too harsh for virgin hair extensions. For best results, use a detangling brush that has ultra thin, flexible bristles that don’t exert as much pressure on your hair bonds.
How To Brush Your Virgin Hair Extensions
In the past, you probably brushed your hair by starting at the roots, or somewhere around the middle of your hair, and pulled downward toward the roots. THIS IS NOT how you should be brushing your virgin hair extensions.
Whether wet or dry, always begin brushing your virgin hair extensions at the tips, with short, gentle strokes. This will help you to safely detangle any snarls without risking breakage to the hair, or loosening your bonds.
Your hair should be brushed in the morning as well as at night before bed (like Mama said!) and always remember to restrain your virgin hair extensions before sleeping so there’s minimal risk of tangling or breakage.
