As embarrassing as it seems, many people actually suffer from dry scalp issues during this time of year. The harsh cold weather can take a toll on your hair AND your scalp! When your scalp is dry, it causes your hair to become more brittle as well….so here are some tips to avoid and fix dry scalp problems:
Believe it or not...just like your face, your scalp needs a good exfoliation! Exfoliating helps gets rid of all of the dead skin cells that are building up on your scalp. We recommend using one of these homemade exfoliating hair masks once a week to eliminate any buildup that could be drying out your scalp.
Apply Conditioner Only on Ends
If you are putting conditioner on your scalp… stop! You may think you’re helping your scalp, but in reality the conditioner is clogging your pores and only making things worse. You should only be applying your conditioner to the ends of your hair. Don’t forget to condition your extensions too! Use the Hydra Conditioner by BeautiMark to strengthen and moisturize your hair extensions.
The Right Shampoo
Using the wrong shampoo can take a toll on your scalp AND your hair! Avoid any shampoos with harsh chemicals and fragrances because they will end up drying out your scalp. Just like you should be using the right shampoo for your scalp, you also need the right shampoo for your extensions to avoid drying them out. We suggest trying our Hydra Shampoo by BeautiMark which is made to address the needs of Hair Extensions and keep them looking and feeling their best.
If you are already suffering from dry scalp issues, try adding some hair oils to your scalp so it can soak it up and soothe the irritation. Try something that has jojoba, coconut, avocado, or tea tree oils because they will relieve and calm your scalp. If you feel that your hair extensions are getting to this brittle point also, try using our Intensive Recovery Mask by BeautiMark which contains avocado, goji, and acai berry oils to rejuvenate your extensions.
