As long, flowing hair is marked as a woman’s crowning glory, it’s only right to take extra steps to care for your strands. But as life would have it, the road to luscious hair is littered with pot holes like hair fall, dandruff, and dryness. In this week’s Beauty Report, we enumerate three common hair woes and the products to put all your bad hair days behind you.
With “stress” being a common term in every woman’s life, it’s not uncommon to experience a little hair fall every now and then, especially when it’s that time of the month when hormones go haywire. But excessive hair fall resulting in thinning hair? Well, we all know that can’t be considered cute. The key here is to strengthen the hair shafts from scalp to tip to prevent breakage and to help the hair adhere to the scalp.
If you blow dry/flat iron/curl your hair on a daily basis or have color-treated hair, then it’s safe to assume your strands have been crying out for some serious hydration. The logical action is to eliminate hot styling tools altogether, as the heat creates brittle hair that later evolve into split ends. Between dye jobs, don’t forget to treat yourself to an extra dollop of conditioner, as chemically treated hair tends to dry out if you don’t monitor your moisture levels.
An itchy scalp and shoulders riddled with flakes are the standout symptoms to this common problem. Although a number of reasons may cause this, the usual suspects are dry, irritated skin (blame the airconditioning and changes in temperature), an oily scalp, or simply not shampooing enough (leftover product can cause buildup).
