You asked and we listened! Whilst we always advise getting your hair extensions removed by a professional stylists. Of course, we get that at this moment it’s not that easy to make an appointment. That’s exactly why we’re here to tell you how to remove your extensions safely.
If you’re not able to get a stylist to remove your hair extensions, this is your guide to getting it right. Follow our top tips below for each extension method and watch our handy video guides on our At Home Removals page of the website.
For each extension method, make sure you follow the below:
- Ensure your hair is freshly washed and dried.
- Make a note of where you removed the hair extensions from
- Once you have taken all the extensions out tie the hair together with a band at the top and keep safe if you want to reuse
- Wash your hair after the removal, we advise using a clarifying or detox shampoo to help get rid of any excess residue
- When brushing through your hair after removal you may find that you have some excess shedding, this is very normal. This is just old hair that we would normally lose. You lose up to 100 strands a day naturally. When you have extensions it has nowhere to go so when you remove them the old hair is released
- If possible get a friend to help with your removal.
Golden Rules of each method:
- Saturate the connection area with 2 or 3 pumps of our alcohol gel remover, use your fingertips to peel the tape off gently
- Use a comb to brush through any excess
- Use the alcohol gel remover and a clamp- both of which you can purchase on our website
- Take them out one by one, keeping the bond wet
- Once the bond is flattened and has turned white thats when you ease it apart with your fingers
Micro Ring Removal
- Release the ring first, don’t worry this may take a few practices but you want to make the ring round for an easy removal
- Hold the ring at the tip, use a clamp to squeeze. This is designed to change the ring from flat to round.
- Use a clamp in an upwards motion and use fingers to release the connection at the top.
- All you need is a comb, clamp and your fingers
