Okay, so our first tip is to brush your hair - yup, a super obvious one but some people think that brushing your hair extensions in the morning is enough for the whole day (literally) then wonder why their hair is super knotty at the end of the day. Is this you!? If so, make sure you’re brushing your hair at least 3 times a day (especially before a shower and before sleeping) this will help keep your extennies tangle free without much work. We’d also definitely recommend using a loop brush (this is a super gentle brush which won’t work to break your hair - hoorah!) and brushing from the ends of your hair working your way upwards.
