* Use Conditioner. After rinsing shampoo, apply conditioner all over your locks. Make sure it sits for around three minutes, then rinse it out.
* Gently dry your locks. Rubbing locks dry with a towel is generally a bad idea. Instead, wrap the towel around your hair before squeezing out all the excess water. Once all excess water has been squeezed out, let hair air dry.
If you want your hair to dry sooner, you can blow-dry it at low or medium setting. Hold the dryer several centimetres away from the head to prevent or minimise damage.
* Deep Conditioning. If your current hair conditioning regimen does not work for you, try deep conditioning at least once in a month. To do this, place oil (jojoba or coconut oil) or leave-on conditioner on your locks. Make sure to leave it there for some time, preferably somewhere around five minutes.
* Look for a gentle comb or brush. The comb or brush you should use must aid in the removal of tangles on your hair, not pull your locks out. If you have thick hair, your best option would be a pick, wooden comb, or wide-toothed comb. But if you have thin hair, you are better off using a narrow-toothed comb or a brush with boar bristles.
* Comb or Brush Gently. Begin working at the bottom, and once you’ve worked on one section, work your way upwards. Should you encounter a tangle, fix the tangle using your fingers before brushing.
When doing this, avoid back-combing or teasing your locks. This will pull the scales of the strands up, and make them more vulnerable to damage. You should also stop brushing once you feel that the comb or brush can run through your locks and the Melbourne hair extensions with little to no trouble at all. Lastly, brushing should only be done when hair is dry, unless your locks are thick and curly.
