Hair Problems

In the beauty industry, everyone seems to have a story when it comes to hair problems. No matter what the story, the ultimate goal is healthy, great-looking hair.  Here are 10 common hair problems and the best ways to overcome them:

1. Dandruff

Dandruff, scaly particles that cling to the root of the hair, can be caused by a poor diet.

2. Hair Loss

Although historically discussed as a problem among men, hair loss/thinning hair is also common among women.  For most men, it may be male pattern balding.  Female hair loss is often caused by stress, medication, changing hormones, and even menopause.  Additionally, many hair styling products (chemicals/excessive heat) can contribute to hair loss.

3. Dry Hair

Shampooing too often causes dry hair.  Although squeaky-clean hair is a good thing, many overdo it by washing once, sometimes twice, per day.  That will strip away all of the hair’s natural oils.

4. Spit Ends

Over-brushing hair, excessive perming, too much heat, and lack of a good conditioner cause split ends.

5. Oily/Greasy Hair

Oily hair is caused when the scalp produces too much of a natural oil called sebum.  Sebum is produced by sebaceous glands, which can sometimes “work overtime”, resulting in excessive amounts of oil.

6. Frizzy Hair

Frizzy hair occurs when the hair’s moisture level falls below normal levels, and it can also be hereditary.

7. Dull Hair

There are many causes of dull-looking hair — chemical or heat-styling damage, and environmental soils.

8. Heat Damaged Hair

Use your curling iron or flat iron too much and your hair will become damaged.

9. Colour Damaged Hair

When you colour your hair, chemicals are used to open your hair shaft, leaving your hair extremely porous and prone to brittleness and breakage.

10. Grey Hair

To many, grey hair is a badge of honour.  But others would prefer to get rid of it because gray hair can be brittle and more unruly than other strands .
