  1. Gather the supplies

    The required supplies are latex gloves, acetone, a small bowl, a small cosmetic brush, a hairbrush, a waste bag, paper towels and fusion bond crushing pliers. Put on the latex gloves, and bring the supplies to a well-ventilated area. Pour a small amount of acetone into a bowl, and close the cap tightly. Keep your face as far away as possible from the acetone fumes.

  2. Apply acetone to the extension bond

    Dip a small, fluffy cosmetic brush into the acetone, and paint the liquid on the adhesive bond. Saturate the bond, and wait about 10 seconds.

  3. Crush the bond

    Crush the weakened bond with the fusion bond crushing pliers, slide the extension out, and place it in the waste bag. After you crush the last bond, remove your gloves and put them in the waste bag.

  4. Remove the residue

    After removing all of the extensions, brush your hair thoroughly to remove the crushed bond particles. Pour the leftover acetone onto a wad of paper towels, wait for it to evaporate, and then throw the towels in the waste bag.
