If you want to m maintain straight and glowing hair extensions, adopt the habit of brushing gently. You can start from the bottom part and then move slowly towards the upper section. Remember, don’t go too hard. Brush your hair extensions gently to prevent any damages. We recommend a vent brush as opposed to a round blow dry brush.
