When your scalp fails to produce oil naturally or when your hair lets away too much moisture, you end up with dull, brittle, and frizzy hair. Some hair specialists refer to brittle hair as the worst kind since it splits, snaps, and breaks!

Your dry, brittle hair could result from shampooing too often, shampooing with harsh ingredients, using heat styling tools in a high heat setting, or not using a conditioner. Here are easy fixes for treating your dry and brittle hair:

1. Address Your Hair Care Routine

First things first, you want to reduce the number of times you shampoo your hair in a week. The shampooing frequency should depend on how fast your hair gets greasy. Next, select a shampoo that suits your hair type. Those with sulfates and other harmful ingredients can dry your hair type out.

The same applies to conditioners; you want to eliminate the use of harsh ingredients if you wish to combat dry hair. If you don’t use a conditioner or use one that hasn’t been designed for your hair type, switch instantly and use the right one often!

Note: Before you work with a conditioner over your hair extensions, read Brenda’s prescribed method. A conditioner should only be used on the ends of the hair shaft, else it may slip the hair extensions out.

2. Turn Down the Heat

Lower the heat setting on all your styling tools and reduce how frequently you use them. Alternatively, you should also protect your hair from the damage caused by ultraviolet rays and other environmental factors. It’s recommended to wear a head covering, such as a scarf or a hat, to minimize sun damage.
