Clean the hair you buy.

Speaking of Kanekalon, a lot of synthetic hair on the market, made of plastic fibers, is also made with chemicals that are not only considered toxic, but at the very least, can be extremely irritating to the scalp. That hair could be why the last time you wore braids, you couldn’t keep them in longer than a week because your scalp was on fire.
