Have you ever experienced customers complain their hair extensions turn into pink/orange?

You may have been concerned about how this happens. Don’t worry, there isn’t an issue with your hair extensions, and the reason why it has happened is surprisingly simple.

Hair extensions do not produce or receive sebum from the scalp, they can become particularly dry and more brittle.
--Salt watefrom the sea
Salt is a natural dehydrator, which is very harsh to hair. It strips away the moisture, nourishing natural oil and remove pigmentation from hair, which causes hair extensions discolored and extremely dry.

--Minerals from hard water
Hard water is water which has a higher level of alkaline/mineral content. It could leave residue on your hair. You own natural hair could absorb needed oils and nutrients from the scalp to counterbalance the minerals. However, hair extensions do not has such resources, they will get discolored, tangled, dry or even broken over repeatedly washes by this type of water.
