Guide to what kind of brush to use on Tape-in Extensions

When it comes to hairbrushes, tape-in hair extensions require a bit of a different approach.

While you can still use the same brush on your hair with them installed, it's important to have one hairbrush that is specifically used for your hair extensions. This will not only help keep your hair looking full and healthy; it will also help your extensions last longer.

A boar-bristle brush is usually best for daily brushing, as this type of hairbrush works well for brushing out tangles without snagging hair or pulling out hair extensions.

Additionally, if you are considering adding more tape-in hair extensions at any point down the line, having a dedicated hairbrush specifically designed for all your hair needs is beneficial!

 

The three main types of brushes

With the perfect hair brush, you can look your best and have a great hair care routine.

There are so many hair brushes out there, it helps to know about the different types available.

The three main types of hair brushes are the paddle brush, the boar's brush, and the loop brush.

Not sure which one will work best for you? One great option is SL Raw's 4-piece hair brush kit; it includes a heat resistant paddle detangle brush, a heat resistant pintail comb, and two hair sectioning clips – making it versatile enough to meet any hair care needs.

Whether you need to detangle knotted hair or groom your locks after blow-drying them straight, this kit has got you covered!

 

HAIR EXTENSION BRUSH KIT

 

Whether tape-in extensions or clip-in extensions, having the right brush and hair care routine to maintain them is so important!

For tape-in extensions, you’ll need a brush with specific bristles that will help lessen tangles while soothingly untangling your hair. For tape-in extensions, consider using a loop brush as they are specifically designed for detangling and styling gentle extension hair.

Bristle brushes are also great for tape-ins because they can reduce frizz and provide shine to your locks. When choosing a bristle brush, just remember that the shorter the bristles on the brush, the gentler it will be on the tape-in extensions - so opt for one with paler tips if you want to keep your tape-ins particularly safe!

 

 


 


 

 

Paddle brushes

Are one of the best tools to detangle and smooth out your hair. Plus, SL Raw paddle brush is gentle on the scalp and handle even the thickest hair. If you're hoping for an extra boost of shine, look no further than a boar's brush! Not only does this type of brush help rid hair of any dirt or build-up, but it also distributes your scalp's natural oils throughout your strands, resulting in glossy locks!

 

Loop brushes

Are becoming increasingly popular for those who wear extensions due to their benefits. They are specifically designed with a round shape and flexible bristles, meaning they can reach through tight curls, gently brush through complex extensions, or style sleek edges without pulling at the scalp or compromising the integrity of extensions. The bristles have rounded tips that help reduce snagging and tugging that other brushes or combs would cause, while also delivering pain-free brushing and styling.

So, if you're looking for an effective tool to keep your extensions looking flawless without worrying about damage or breakage, loop brushes are certainly worth considering!

RAW WAVY TAPE-INS

Brushing your tape-in extensions may look intimidating but it doesn't have to be!

There's no need to worry about doing anything too crazy when choosing the right brush. You can opt for a wide-toothed comb or even go with a boar bristle brush.

Whatever you choose, just make sure you use gentle strokes while brushing. Doing so will help keep the tape-in extensions from becoming damaged - meaning they'll stay looking beautiful and luscious for much longer! If you need any additional guidance in caring for your tape-in extensions, ask your hair professional for advice.

Now that you know a little bit more about the different types of hairbrushes that can be used on tape-in extensions, it's time to choose the right one for you.

Each type of brush has its own set of benefits that can help to keep your extensions looking their best.

Paddle brushes are great for detangling and smoothing out your hair, while boar's brushes help to distribute natural oils from your scalp throughout your strands.

Loop brushes are perfect for gently brushing through extensions without causing any damage or tugging at the roots.

No matter which type of brush you choose, be sure to use gentle strokes when brushing through your tape-in extensions to avoid damaging them.
