Rinse, and add your conditioner and detangle with a wide-tooth comb, and rinse thoroughly. Pat dry and allow your bundles to air dry completely. It helps to remove chemicals that are used to manufacture the weft hair and the dirt from the packaging.
How to comb hair properly
It is very important, especially if you have extensions that are longer than 20″. When brushing be sure to brush from tip to root, avoiding snags, and gently detangling your hair. Pay patience on it: rushing or rough brushing will induce shedding.
