Now it’s time to take down or uninstall your Yarn Braids Extensions . If you would rather sport your hairstyle for another couple of days or even weeks feel free but remember to take care of your hair. When I wear any type of hairstyle, it is a MUST that I add moisture to my hair at least once a week. I use my spray bottle concoction to add moisture to my hair.

Remember to release your braids out of a pinned style at least once a week to add some moisture to your hair. If your hair requires less moisture, that's fine. Do to your hair what your hair needs because if you let conditions worsen, your hair ends up paying for it.

When taking down your Yarn Braids Extensions all you have to do is cut the tips and unravel them from the bottom and work your way up. Sometimes I like to cut of the very bottom of the braids because the ends are extremely interlocked which makes it hard to take them down.

If you are sure or unsure as to whether or not where your hair ends along the braids, take them down with your hands and only cut the very tips until you are comfortable with cutting more on the ends to speed up the process. Its really easy and simple and once you get the technique down, you will be addicted to the ease of this style!
