Getting hair extensions can be a life-changing event. Doubling down on your post-extension hair care means choosing the best brushes for hair extensions, among many other new practices.
Thankfully, Spornette has you covered for a wide variety of brushes that pamper your new hair and (let’s face it) your hefty investment. Check out our tips and tricks for maintaining your lovely, luxurious locks well after the initial “installation.”
Visit Spornette today for a superior selection of the best brushes for hair extensions. We help you maintain shiny, vibrant hair for the best styling performance, whether you’re chilling with Netflix or heading to the board meeting.
Hopefully, you’re beyond thrilled with your new hair extensions results. You have more length, more volume, more movement, and more versatility. Here’s how to be sure you keep your salon-fresh look and healthy new locks for as long as possible.
Yep, that’s right. Do nothing for 24 hours. While your extensions are still fresh, the adherence points can also be fragile. Letting your hair set for this time is especially true for glue-in hair extensions. You don’t want to pull out any of your new hair extensions accidentally!
Of course, you’ll need to brush your hair extensions eventually, no matter how careful you are to avoid tangling situations like wind and water for a few days. Always use a brush designed for hair extensions, like the Spornette Super Looper or the Spornette Luxury Cushion LX-1.
These brushes are effective on tangles but gentle enough to use on synthetic hair or natural hair extensions. Here’s how to brush your extended locks without worry:
The Spornette Super Looper has a uniquely designed looped bristle structure that won’t catch or “grab” hair strands as it moves along your scalp. The Spornette “21” Classic Nylon Cushion can handle any hair and is well-suited for extensions, too.

Though we all would love to keep the “salon bubble” after a perfect hair extension application, the real world tends to take over after a few days.
You’ll need to (gulp!) wash your new extensions a little differently than your natural hair. Here’s how to ensure your hair extensions stay put while getting your hair (safely) clean.
As with your natural hair, you should towel-dry or air-dry your locks until just damp before blow-drying. Applying a professional-grade leave-in conditioner will help your hair extensions retain their moisture and shine.
As you rough-dry your hair, you can finger-style, gently working through any tangles as they arise. Once your hair is almost dry, it’s time for a styling brush.
You’ll want to use the brush from mid-shaft to hair end, directing the blowdryer down the shaft. Spornette’s Brent Sculpting and Brent Paddle brushes create an ideal hair brushing surface with looped bristles blended with natural boar bristles.
The looped bristles on the Brent Sculpting and Brent Paddle brushes do not catch or tangle hair extensions. The boar bristles help distribute your natural hair and scalp oils evenly through hair for shine and strength.
You probably opted for hair extensions for more styling versatility, right? Before getting crazy with the heated styling tools, do a check-in with your stylist. He or she will remind you of how much heat your new locks can handle safely.
Each brand of extension may have slightly different styling recommendations, so it’s smart to take notes and keep them handy as you try out new looks each week.
Before styling, always apply a heat protectant product to your hair. You can typically use between 270 and 400 degrees of heat on your locks as long as you’ve protected them first with a professional product.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to avoid heat-styling near your hair attachments, as you can melt, detach, or damage your natural hair and the extension.
In addition to using the best brushes for hair extensions, here are a few other tips for lock-longevity:
