What Is Damaging Your Hair
Are you finding a new split end every day? Little things that we do cause stress to your hair and sometimes even your extensions. It’s super important to take care of your tape in extensions and clip in extensions like they are your own hair because they are made with 100% natural Remy hair. In this blog post, we will go over everyday things that are damaging your hair and how to prevent it.
Using Heat Tools On Wet Hair
I know we have all done it. Straightening or curling your hair when it’s wet or damp is more damaging than it seems. Wet or damp hair is more vulnerable to breakage because of heat coming into contact with water. Would you ever put your hair into a boiling pot of water? I don’t think so.
Over-washing can do a lot of damage to your hair. When you wash your hair, you are stripping away the oil that has built up on your scalp. If you do this too much, your hair will become dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. To prevent over washing, find a schedule that works for you and avoid washing your hair daily. Dry shampoo can also be very helpful for the adjustment period!
Using the Wrong Brush
When you brush your hair with a low-quality brush you can cause friction and then breakage. We recommend using our Wet/Dry Detangling Brush on wet or dry hair. Our Premium Boar Detangling Brush can only be used on dry hair but leaves your hair healthy and smooth. Tip: when brushing your hair, make sure you start from ends and gradually work up to brushing your hair from root to tip.
We love a good ponytail! Using the wrong hair band or tying your ponytail too tight can constantly tug and pull from your scalp causing damage. We suggest spending more time with your hair down than up.
