How to Remove Hair Extensions at Home

Hair extensions can add volume, texture and style to any hair type. Whatever type of extension you choose, there are different ways to place them in your hair: woven, glued, knotted, etc. Most extensions should be removed by a professional to avoid damaging your hair. Glued extensions, however, can be removed at home. That’s why in this post we explain how to remove hair extensions at home.

There are three types of hair extensions you can use, depending on the look you want and how much money you want to spend. Synthetic hair extensions are inexpensive, but they can look fake – hair has an abnormal shine. The 100% human hair extensions look very natural but are a little more expensive than synthetic hair extensions. And extensions of virgin hair (hair of the same person) are the ones that look better and can be treated – dyed, highlighted, permanent, etc. -like it’s your own hair.

The different types of laying will also influence the final price of your mane, as there are more laborious ways of laying that involve more time, so they will be more expensive. However, there are quick placements, not only when it comes to putting them on, but also when it comes to removing them. This is the case with glued extensions. It’s so easy to remove that you can remove hair extensions at home with ease. This will save you the expense of paying a professional.
