        How to distinguish between real human hair and synthetic hair?

        What is the reason for the hair becoming dry and brittle?

        For our naturally growing hair, the reasons for the hair become dry and brittle include the following aspects: On the one hand, it’s our reasons. For example, malnutrition, hypothyroidism, and a biotin deficiency can all cause brittle hair. On the other hand, it is due to external reasons. This includes the use of hairdryers, flat irons, curling irons, and other similar devices, which are often used on the hair. Excessive heat styling can cause great damage to the hair. Remember the higher the temperature, the more damage to the hair.

        Besides, seasonal factors will also affect our hair. In autumn and winter, the air is usually dry. This will affect our skin and hair to varying degrees. The colder the weather and the drier the air, the weaker our hair will become. This results in severe dryness and hair loss.

        So, what are the reasons why hair extensions have become so dry? Like hair extensions, the hair leaves the scalp for a long time, the hair cannot absorb nutrients. Therefore, it is normal for hair to become dry. Our normal hair, if it is not treated well, will become dry, not to mention hair extensions. So you don’t have to worry about dry hair, just follow the correct method to care for it.

        What can be done to fix dry hair? 

        Limit the hair washing 

        Some experts have said that for most people, washing their hair twice a week is the best choice. Because it can balance the cleanliness and moisturization of hair and scalp.

        Generally, washing hair frequently, in order to compensate for the dry hair, the scalp will be over-driven to produce natural oils, resulting in oily hair. That is to say, the more frequent hair washing, the stronger the hair oil secretion. Washing your hair frequently will increase your hair problems. 

        The washing frequency of Hair extensions, our suggestion is also 1-2 times a week.

        Nourish the hair

        Usually the longer our hair, the drier the ends of the hair. Therefore, it is very necessary to supplement the hair with nourishment.

        Not to mention hair extensions. They leave the scalp for a long time, so when washing hair extensions, you should use more conditioners or hair masks. Use more hair oil after washing. This can effectively alleviate problems such as dry hair. (Warm tips: Coconut oil has a soothing and moisturizing effect when applied to the hair.)

        Protect the hair from heat styling

        The higher the temperature, the greater the damage to the hair. When the hair extensions are washed, it is best to dry them naturally. When using flat irons and curling irons, the temperature should be controlled below 170°. This can reduce the damage to the hair extensions due to high temperatures.

        Of course, in order to protect our natural hair from heat damage, wearing hair extensions is definitely a good choice. Not only can you pre-set the style of hair extensions, but you can also retain styles such as waves and curls so that your hair will be longer, thicker, and better styling.

        At last

        Prevention of dry hair is the most effective solution. Carefully take care in daily life and change your lifestyle.

        Avoid excessive use of hair styling products, including hair dyes and heated styling tools, such as hair dryers, flat irons, and curling irons.

        Avoid excessive contact with chlorinated water in the swimming pool. It is best to tie your hair up and wear a swimming cap when swimming.

        Apply a moisturizing hair mask once a week.

        Use soft padded hair accessories, and avoid using metal clips and other metal accessories.

        Avoid washing your hair too frequently, just twice a week.

        Use mild shampoos, such as shampoos that do not contain herbs or sulfates.

        When washing your hair, use cold or warm water instead of hot water. Because the cold water will help seal the stratum corneum and reduces water loss.

        Drink plenty of water and follow a healthy, balanced diet, because the food a person consumes will directly affect the health of their hair.
