How To Fight Common Hair Problems
Hair can be difficult to handle. On good days, it’ll cooperate and on other days, you can’t get it look the way you want, no matter how many products you use on it.
While getting your hair to work with you is frustrating, finding a fix may be simpler than you think. With only a few simple products that you may already have at home, you can fight common hair problems. Here are some quick fixes for your unruly hair:
We know the weather is starting to warm up when our locks get frizzy. Frizzy, dry and damaged hair can be very difficult to manage. To prevent this, be proactive. Fine hair is especially prone to frizz because it can get easily damaged and dry. Once or twice a week, use a rich leave in conditioner, like the Sexy Hair Concepts Healthy & Sexy Pumpkin Potion Leave In Conditioner. They will help keep your hair moisturized. You should also protect your hair whenever using hot tools, such as a curling iron or a straightening iron. A few spritzes of a heat protectant spray, such as the Tresamme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Protective Spray, will keep your hair protected from high heat.
Oily and greasy hair is not a good look and it is also incredibly difficult to style. You might be compelled to wash your hair daily to get rid of the oil but it can actually cause harm to your hair. It can strip it of some natural oils that keep your hair looking healthy. Instead, try shampooing every other day with a clarifying shampoo, such as the Rusk Purify Deep Cleansing Shampoo. This will get rid of all the oil and gunk. In between washes, you can use a dry shampoo, like the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray, to refresh your hair.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, dry hair can be just as difficult to manage as oily hair. Dry hair can tend to very brittle, which causes hair to damage easily. If you find yourself with unusually dry hair, try not to shampoo too often. You don’t want to strip your hair of it’s natural oils. When you do shampoo, use a rich conditioner and leave it in for a couple extra minutes. A couple great options are the Matrix Biolage Smoothing Conditioner or the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Lavender Mint Conditioner.
Similarly, a common factor of dry hair is split ends. Split ends occur with over usage of hot tools or coloring products. This can cause hair to become dry and damaged, which in turn causes the ends to split. If you already have split ends, trim up to an inch of your hair. To prevent them from reoccurring, be mindful of the products you use. Don’t use anything with too many chemicals. Instead, opt for something gentle on your hair, like the Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo.
