  • It's totally normal. I have been doing extensions professionally and wear them myself. Here are a few things to help you understand.
    I've seen hair that costs $600 tangle. What was the brand of hair? What type of hair is it? Fusion, tracks? Some are more notorious for that than others.

    You hair gets nutrients from the natural oils on your scalp. Extensions don't get that as easily.
    NEVER go to bed without your hair in a loose braid and covered.
    DO NOT go to bed with wet hair.

    I can better help you with more info. :)

  • Take them to the salon and ask for recommendations. They can help you find the exact products and suggestions you need.

  • Also, when people are trying to sell hair they'll tell you that they are all high quality. Hair comes from many places and goes through a lot of stress to be processed and sterilized. The ingredients they use to do so can vary.

  • Are you using the reccomended care products, including the proper shampoos and conditioners for hair extensions? You can pretty much ruin hair by using stuff you can buy at walmart. If I think of anything else, I'll get back to ya.
