Give your hair some attention to get rid of some of the biggest hair problems you might be facing.
We’ve all had to deal with problems when it comes to our hair. That’s one of the biggest clauses behind having good hair. Some of the biggest hair problems you can face include:
- Dry/brittle hair
- Limp/lifeless hair
- Heat damaged hair
- Scalp issues
Luckily, they have become the easiest ones to deal with. The following are a few solutions that can help you deal with almost any hair problem you might be having:
Brushing Wet Hair
This is particularly hard to avoid doing despite so many experts suggesting that you don’t. Apparently, they don’t have hair that will turn into a bush of unruly tangles, sprinkled with a bit of frizz for extra measure when it’s dry.
If you can’t do without brushing your hair when it’s wet, you need to invest in getting a wide tooth comb. Moreover, if you can, invest in getting a wet brush or comb that is designed specifically for brushing wet hair. Say goodbye to dealing with knots or snagging and breaking hair.
No At Home Conditioning
Sure you go to the salon to get your hair a treatment by the professionals, but how often does one get to do that? Once every two weeks? While that may be fine, you should also be including an at-home conditioning session for your hair. Using natural oils like olive oil, coconut oil or argan oil twice a week can help to keep your scalp and your hair healthy.
Also invest in some all-natural hair masks that you can make on your own. Products like yogurt, egg, avocado and honey do wonders when used in a hair mask. Apply these once a week and you’re going to see just how shiny, lustrous and sleek your hair can be.
Skipping Heat Protection Sprays
Whether you’re blow drying your hair, curling it or simply stepping out of your house, you need to spray heat protection spray on. This should become the first step for your styling routine, regardless of whether you’re running late or not.
Hot tools can damage hair easily and over time, they make the ends appear frazzled and burnt. Even exposure to the sun can damage your hair since UV rays are harmful for your hair too. So if you’re stepping out on a sunny day, either invest in a large hat or spritz some heat protection spray on.
Ignoring the Scalp
Your scalp is responsible for 80% of your hair’s health. If it’s in bad shape, your hair isn’t going to look wonderful. If you’ve got dandruff, it means your scalp is too dry. This could also lead to weak hair since there’s not enough moisture for the hair roots.
Oily scalps can also be a problem too since you’ll be washing your hair more and collecting residue from shampoos and conditioners you use. So whether you’re experiencing some flakes or feel like your hair is particularly oily, give your scalp the attention it deserves.
The biggest thing you need to do is be patient. Change doesn’t happen overnight but it’s definitely worth it.
