Posted on 2017-08-08

Some customer might notice that instead of natural color decription we Elesis Virgin Hair offer #2(Dark brown),#1b(Off black), #1(Jet black) as option color when people choose a hair product to buy on our official website. Many customer have the question “Shouldn't natural color be #1B only?why you guys have #1,#2?” “Is your #1/#2 hair dyed processed ?” 

Without  doubt, our hair is 100% unprocessed virgin hair. All our hair color present as #1,#1b,#2 are unprocessed natural color. 

A few people refuse to give our hair a try because we have #1,#2 color which they think should not be natural hair color and so they think we must have bleached or dyed the hair. So it's time to tell customer how can hair be different color.

Hair color depends on the ratio of two types of melanin:eumelanin and pheomelanin. Generally, if more eumelanin is present, the hair appears to be darker; if less eumelanin is present, the hair is lighter. The ratio of the two melanins is different on different people so that's why people can have darker or lighter hair. 1B off black is the most common color, but there is still some people have #1 or #2 color hair. Levels of melanin can be vary over time causing a person’s hair color to change which means person can have different color hair in his different period life. There are some causes to change hair color.

The main cause of your black hair turning brown is excessive exposure of the sun. The sun’s ultraviolet ray are being absorbed by your hair roots and the vitamin D in going inside your scalp and it is sort of tanning your hair. So, before go to strong sun cover your hair with a hat or use umbrella.

If your hair is turning brown over times, your body may be lack of certain trace elements. For example, iron deficiency can lead to poor nutrition, lack of copper can affect the metabolism of melanin and Zinc deficiency can affect the growth and development of cells, all these trace elements are basic nutrition which make hair appear to be black so if your body lack of some nutrition your hair will naturally turn yellow.

If your hair is changing color after you use different haircare product, you need to pay attention to the product you are using is causing the problem. Chemical products harm your hair in a lots of ways. For one, turning your black hair to light brown is the first thing chemicals do to your hair. People who often go to swim tend to have lighter color hair because the chlorine in the water is just like one kind of chemical that damage the hair.

Some kinds of disease may also cause hair turning brown, for example people who have systemic scleroderma and systemic lupus erythematosus, their hair will not only turn yellow, but it will also fall off a lot. Too much stress also causing hair turning brown. 

In summary, excessive exposure of sun, nutritional deficiencies, changes in haircare routine and even disease can alter color.
