Braid Removal Spray : Whether you go natural or not, extensions and weaves are the most worn hairstyles among Black women in general. Even Oprah who is blessed with a head full of gorgeous hair of herself and really doesn’t need extensions was wearing cornrowed braids while in South Africa.
I thought they looked fabulous and it is understandable. Extensions are a great style to fall back on when times are busy. You go on vacation or you just need a break from styling. There is nothing like a getup and go style that needs minimum maintenance and always looks good while your own hair has a change to rest and grow.
Of course there are also a couple of minuses to this styling option. First, getting extensions can hardly be called pleasant. It’s always uncomfortable when someone is braiding your hair, no matter how careful the braider is. I have to stress the point though that you have to make sure that your hair is never braided too tight. Tight extensions will damage your own hair. Something you need to avoid at all cost if your goal is healthy hair.( Braid Removal Spray )
However, the number one thing nobody likes when it comes to extensions is taking them out. This often takes more time than getting them in but more than that it is the patience it takes to take each braid out as well as the carefulness necessary that makes this job tedious.
The good thing is that dreading this task so much made me become an expert in doing it. I would always search for the best products, tools and what not to make this daunting job just a little easier. Now I consider myself an expert in removing extensions.
As someone who worn a lot of extensions, I know that it’s most important that you do take that time and patience to take extensions out if you want to keep the hair you’ve just grown, healthy. So, here are the steps. I am sure they will make the process a lot easier for you too. ( Braid Removal Spray )
The first and foremost step you can take to make the process easier is to not leave your extension or weave in longer than 2 months. Three at the most but remember, the longer you keep them, the harder it will be to take them out.
What you need:Conditioning Cap, No More Knots– Tangle Teezer – Terry Turban
Braid Removal Spray
Step 1 – Prepare
|The night before taking out your extensions, saturate your hair from roots to tip with No More Knots. This spray contains the right combination of ingredients to moisturise your hair in between the extensions.
Cover with the Conditioning Cap. Wearing this cap overnight after using No More Knots is like a conditioning treatment.
Step 2 – Get to work
|Your body heat will help your hair absorb the detangler even more. Cover the conditioning cap with the Terry Turban or wrap your hair to make sure the cap will stay put.
When you are ready to get to work the next day, put your hair in a bun and only take those braids out you’ll be working on.
If you don’t use real or reusable hair cut the braid a few inches under your own hair. It’s makes it easier to unbraid the hair but just make sure you don’t cut your own hair.
Step 4 – Unbraid
|Start unbraiding the extension at the end, working towards the scalp.
This shouldn’t be difficult at all. It’s like taking out regular braids.
When you get to the part that includes your hair, keep on going but make sure your hair doesn’t get tangled with the extension.
When you get to your scalp, it should be easy to slide the extension out of your hair. If it’s not, spray a bit more Detangler, let it sit for a minute to soften and move on to the next braid.
Step 5 – Remove lint
|More likely than not your will see some accumulation of lint right where the extension was attached matted together with your hair.
Don’t panic. It’s only natural. Any type of dirt, dust or debris settles on your hair and skin everyday but you don’t see it because you regularly take showers and wash your hair.
With extensions in the pollution is hard to wash out so it accumulates between the extension and your hair.
| Spray a bit No More Knots in your hair and on the buildup. It is important that the strands are well moisturized before you take apart the lint.
Once your hair is moisturized, separate your matted strands from one another then take it out.
If lint is only on top of the hair and not in between the strands, a very soft brush may help to take the lint out.
Otherwise you have to take the lint out with your fingers. Loosen up the matted strands as much as you can
Step 5 – Untangle
| Once the lint is out use the Tangle Teezer to remove the tangles. Your strands will also be nourished by the ingredients of the No More Knots detangler.
Make a twist of the hair and repeat the steps until all the extensions are out.
The hair that comes out is naturally shed hair that is part of the hair growth cycle. Like the dust this hair didn’t have a chance to shed because it was held in place by the extension.
Now that your done treat yourself bij washing and conditioning with the Clean start for super fresh beginnings to care, style and grow your hair.
