– Use a wide-toothed comb to smooth the hair or use gentle fingers to brush the hair before combing.

– Brush in the direction from the bottom to the top, the top part of the hair must be brushed first and then towards the top of the head.

– When the hair is in a humid state, there are two ways to dry it: One is to dry the hair in the light in the morning, the other is to use a dedicated hair dryer at a moderate heat (should also limit the use of the dryer because reduces the quality of hair fibers).

– Before drying, we fixed the wig firmly on a wooden bow head, using a comb to comb the hair.

– Adjust the dryer to the average temperature and wind, change the top-down airflow, place the 45 degree diagonal machine against the top of the head and about 20 cm away from the hair.

– If carefully, after drying, you should use some olive oil on your hair to increase the shine and flexibility for the hair. Olive oil is a great ingredient for hair and this is the way to restore hair extensions that are so effective that few people think about it.
