in this week’s video, we’re going to talk about how to DETANGLE EXTENSIONS.
sadly, a pair of jessica’s tape-in extensions ended up in the washing machine. the harsh detergent and hot water turned them into a tangled and matted mess. we’re going to attempt to detangle those extensions.
did we mention it's also gonna be a bit of a SCIENCE EXPERIMENT? we’re going to put the extensions in 4 DIFFERENT solutions to see which one, if any, will revive them.
experiment #1: COCONUT OIL
COCONUT OIL is a solid at room temperature, so we had to really use the heat of our hands to melt it and massage it into the extensions.
experiment #2: OLIVE OIL
OLIVE OIL is used as an ingredient in quite a few different store bought, and DIY masks and other hair products. we think it'll probably work well to detangle these messy matted extensions.
experiment #3: VINEGAR
the ph level of hair is acidic, and you’ve probably heard of using a VINEGAR RINSE to restore the hair. the goal here is that the acidity of the vinegar will seal the cuticle of the hair shut and hopefully make it easier to comb out the tangles.
experiment #4 nvenn ‘replenish’ HAIR RESTORATION OIL
‘replenish’ is made from NATURAL KELP EXTRACT and ESSENTIAL OILS, we’re gonna put it to the test and see if it can make quick work of these matted messes.
we want to really saturate the hair and work the product into the extension to coat all of the strands.
now that we’ve got all of our extensions soaking in different solutions, we’re going to let them sit overnight and check our results tomorrow.
24 hours later
now it’s time to put these solutions to THE TEST! we’re going to attempt to comb out each set of extensions to see which works best to DETANGLE EXTENSIONS.
result #1: the coconut oil
after sitting overnight the coconut oil had become solid once again, so we want to use the heat from our hands again to liquify the oil and make it more workable.
let’s see if we can comb it out.
it combed out a little bit, but it didn't work very well. the coconut oil is not very effective for detangling the very matted parts of the hair. result: fail.
result #2 the vinegar
next is the hair we treated with vinegar.
the vinegar softened the hair, but did nothing to loosen the matted parts, it actually made the tangles worse. this home method isn’t very effective for detangling hair at all. result: super fail.
result #3 the olive oil
next up is the extension we treated with olive oil.
this one seemed to have even less effect than the vinegar. it didn’t remove any of the tangles and pretty much left us with a greasy mess. result: mega super fail.
result #4 the nvenn ‘replenish” oil
our fourth and final solution is our nvenn “replenish” hair restoration oil.
after soaking the extensions for 24 hours, we checked the extensions we soaked in each solution. the video will show that the only extensions that combed out are the extensions that we treated with our “replenish” oil. the matted hair was easy work and began to detangle without any effort. result: not too shabby.
we were able to get quite a few of the tangles out of this extension, but at the rate it was going, it would take hours to comb them all out. at the end of the day, it’s easier to just buy new extensions, but the result really shows the power of “replenish” and its specially formulated blend of natural essential oils.
it’s important to remember that these extensions were exposed to very harsh laundry detergent and extremely hot water, and we didn’t think any of the solutions we used would detangle these matted messes, and even though we couldn't save the extensions we are still happy with the result of the experiment. if “replenish” can detangle the most matted of hair, imagine how amazing it will make your damaged hair feel.
