Hair Problems That Become the Bane Of Our Lives

Hair problems may sound inconsequential in the grand scheme of things, but let’s admit it, we all despise them. Everyone wants healthy, strong and abundant hair. Yet our lifestyle choices, food habits, using chemicals to style our hair, pollution and certain illnesses can take a toll on our hair. In this article, we will outline certain common hair problems.DandruffWe are all familiar with dandruff. Skin flakes that come loose and itchy scalp are two common symptoms. Many associate dandruff with poor hygiene, but usually it results from scalp dryness, excess sebum production and reaction to certain chemicals.So keep an eye on the hair products you use. Does a certain shampoo or conditioner trigger dandruff? Do you find flakes on your shoulders during a certain season like winter? Then it’s time to change your hair products and skip chemicals-laded products like hair gel. Apply apple cider vinegar as a quick resolution to dandruff problems.Hair fallHair fall can be the result of poor diet, insufficient hair care or could be a sign of an underlying illness. Losing 50-100 strands is normal. Anything beyond that may require you to consult a dermatologist. Use gentle hair care products, apply conditioners and add lots of proteins to your diet.If your hair seems greasy or sweaty, wash it. Don’t brush or tie wet hair.  Avoid hair styling devices like irons or dryers as much as possible.Oily scalpOily scalp is a tricky hair problem. If you wash your hair more than 3 times a week, it may dry out your hair and to compensate, your scalp may produce too much sebum. Whereas, if you don’t wash your hair at least 3 times, sebum will accumulate and make your scalp greasy and generate an unpleasant smell. So what do you do? Well, you will definitely need to shampoo your hair thrice a week. Use a tender shampoo. Don’t forget to moisturize your hair. Clean your comb and hairbrush regularly. Don’t brush your hair frequently, brushing activates the sebum glands. Split endsAnother common hair complaint, split ends happen when your hair strands dry up. This could be because you are not drinking enough fluids or using conditioners. Brush your hair at least twice a day to make the natural scalp oil reach the tips. If you have long hair, tie it up gently before you go to bed to reduce friction. Go in for regular trims. Drink plenty of water and use conditioners.Frizzy hair or flyaway hairThe leading cause of a bad hair day, frizzy hair looks dry, unkempt, and is very difficult to manage and keep in place. Frizzy hair is prone to breakage and damage. Exposure to humidity and harsh chemicals make your hair frizzy. Use regular hair masks. You can make hair masks at home with hair-friendly ingredients like eggs, coconut oil, honey, green tea etc.
