How to Detangle Your Hair Extensions

It’s commonly known that hair extensions are a great way to add your hair length or volume, but sometimes it’s normal for them to get tangled. Below are some steps to teach you how to get the tangles out of your hair extensions.
 1 Detangle minor tangles with your fingers. If your extensions are only slightly tangled, you may be able to use your fingers to remove the tangles. Comb through the extensions with your fingers, but work slowly and gently until the tangles are removed.
2 Use a wide tooth comb for major tangles. Though wetting the hair extensions make it easier to detangle them, hair is also more fragile when it’s wet. To avoid breakage and other damage, choose a wide tooth comb instead of a brush. The wide space between the comb’s teeth helps to gently detangle rather than pulling or tugging at the hair.
3 Start detangling at the bottom of the extension. If you start combing from the top of the hair extension, you’ll have to work through the entire knot or tangle to make it to the end. Starting at the bottom allows you to detangle small sections of the knot at a time, so you don’t damage the hair.
4 Move your comb upward when the bottom is detangled. Once you’ve detangled the bottom of the extension, place your comb a little higher and work on that section of the tangle. Run the comb through the extension gently until you’ve detangled that section as well. Repeat the process until the entire tangle is removed.
So if you want to detangle your hair extensions to make them looking smooth and shiny again, just follow the above steps. And if you are looking for a hair extension, uniwigs.com has all beautiful options for you.

 

What You Should Know About Coloring Your Hair Extensions

As we know, many ladies choose to wear hair extensions so they can do things they would never do to their real hair, such as rock a bold new color. However, some women are novices to hair coloring and do not have clear expectations on how the hair will change after coloring. Below are some tips of coloring hair extensions.
Keep your hair extensions hydrated
Whenever you color your virgin hair extensions, the hair is no longer virgin and require more care. Just like your natural hair, because it has been chemically processed, conditioning is even more important ,so always remember to use high quality hair care product to keep your hair extensions hydrated and moisturized.
Be careful with chemicals & heat
Bleaching the hair may result slight texture changes, so you may see a difference in the curl pattern after you’ve lightened your hair extensions and it may decrease the luster the hair had. To restore the shine and silkiness, apply a clear rinse to the hair and the problem is solved.Lastly, after you color your hair extensions, using heat may stress the hair more than normal so try not to use your curling and flat irons daily if you plan to wear your hair extensions through multiple installations. Whenever you do curl or flat iron the hair, be sure to apply a heat protectant to protect your tresses.
Hope these tips are helpful to you.Happy coloring!

Q&A about UniWigs Closures

Q: Can the lace closure hair pieces be straightened or curled?
A: Yes, treat the lace closure hair as if it is your own. Use a flat iron/ straightener or tongs, even when fitted, but as with your own hair, never use hot tools too often as you could dry the hair and it will not last as long.

Q: Can I dye /color the lace closure hair pieces?
A. Yes. The hair can be colored. As a general rule it is easier to darken the hair than to lighten the hair. We recommend to dye darker, not lighter since the hair extension has been processed and colored, it is difficult to fade the original color. Improper dying will ruin the hair. We highly recommend having your hairdresser dye the extensions as you will get the results you want, coloring them yourself always poses a high risk of not coming out the shade you want. If you can’t get to a salon, always use a good quality hair dye and test a small sample first.

Q: Can I wash & blow-dry the lace closure hair pieces?
A: You can wash them as you would your own, shampoo and condition the hair. We also recommend using a hair treatment on the closure every few weeks, because the hair is not attached to your scalp, it is not getting the oils it should be. Using a treatment/hair mask will help keep them looking healthier and shiny for longer! You will find that you don’t need to wash your hair too much, about every 3 weeks. The hair can be blow-dried on low setting, but it is not recommended to do it too often. It is best to let your lace closure hair piece dry naturally after washing them.

Tips: In order to get the best results, always get your closure fitted by a professional.
