How to remove machine-weft hair extensions at home: 5 steps 

Many detailed guidelines have been thoroughly studied, each presenting various procedures for DIY removal of machine-weft hair extensions. I’ve reduced the fundamental methods into a simplified sequence of five critical phases by combining knowledge from several different sources.

Step 1: Section

Start by making sure you can access each individual strip of weft hair. Always begin at the bottom of the back of the head, nearest the nape. Separate your hair into manageable sections using hair clips. This not only makes the process smoother but also ensures you don’t miss a strand.

Step 2: Locate the Attachment Points

Examine each section carefully, feeling for the small threads that secure the weft extensions to your natural hair. Beginning with the bottom and the weft extension attachment points. Attachment points are often held in place by microscopic sew-ins. This is a critical phase, and time is required to precisely locate each attachment site.

Step 3: Cut the attachment point and loosen the weft 

Cut the thread that is tying the weft to your natural hair carefully from the bottom up. To avoid harming your own hair, use small, sharp scissors and cut close to the base of the weft. 

Proceed through each portion in a systematic manner, paying special attention to the details. The idea is to remove the wefts without damaging your natural hair. Take your time with each cut, making sure you only snip the thread and not the hair itself. Continue in this methodical manner until all wefts have been removed from each region.

Step 4:  Use pliers to loosen the micro ring 

After successfully identifying the weft extension attachment locations, proceed to the next step: loosening the micro rings using pliers. Take a pair of pliers and gently approach the micro ring. The goal is to gently squeeze the bead on one side, creating enough space to easily pull it off your natural hair. It is critical to use caution during this process to avoid causing unintended damage to your hair.

The pliers are a useful tool for manipulating the micro rings without damaging your hair strands. When you first start, apply just enough pressure to loosen the bead while being careful not to squeeze too hard. Overexerting pressure may cause hair breakage or damage, therefore a delicate and controlled approach is essential.

Step 5: Detangle and style hair

After removing extensions, detangling and styling your hair is an important step in maintaining the health and beauty of your natural locks. Once the extensions are removed, use a wide-tooth comb to work through any knots or tangles that may have remained from the extensions.  Remember to be gentle with your natural hair to avoid breakage or damage.
