The Most Common Hair Health Problems & How To Alleviate Them!

We focus a lot on our skin and how healthy it is, even going as far as to put daily skin care routines in place, but what about our hair? For some reason, we’re willing to put in the time and effort when it comes to our skin care, but when it comes to our hair health, we’re not so bothered. It's important to remember, that just like our skin needs care to stay healthy, so does our hair.

With that in mind, below are some of the most common hair problems and tips for dealing with them. Take these on board, improve your hair’s health, and you’ll look and feel better for it.

Split ends
At one point or another, most of us will develop split ends. The cause tends to be a lack of hair care. Depending on how split your ends are, the best thing to do is get a haircut. Obviously, if your hair is really split, all the damaged hair may not be able to be removed, but hopefully, most of it can be. To prevent split ends getting worse, it’s important to take better care of your hair. To do this, use a rich conditioner to the ends of your hair each time you wash it. You could also consider applying coconut oil or argan oil to your hair on a daily basis. This will help to nourish it and should prevent your split ends from getting any worse.

Thinning hair
Thinning hair in women is much more common than we think, studies have shown that as many as 21 million women suffer from hair thinning. Although more common in older women, that’s not to say that hair loss and thinning can’t happen in our 20’s and 30’s, because the truth is it can. Sometimes this is down to genetic factors, other times it’s down to stress. Whatever the cause of hair thinning, the important thing is to know what you can do to improve the health of your hair. A lot of specialists recommend taking vitamins, as hair vitamins provide health benefits for hair. Another way to build up your hair health is to swap to using all natural products and eating a clean diet, free from any junk.

Grease-prone hair
Are you someone who suffers from grease-prone hair? If the answer is yes, the chances are you’re stuck in a cycle of washing your hair every day, because it’s greasy incredibly quickly. However, by doing this, you’re only making the problem worse. It might not be nice to have greasy hair, but try and stretch to washing it every other day. On the second day, apply baby powder or dry shampoo to soak up the grease. One of the most common causes for greasy hair is applying conditioner to the roots. Instead, only apply conditioner to the ends of your hair.

Just like your skin, your hair needs (and deserves) to be well looked after. Don’t neglect your hair health. Otherwise, you could be left with dry, dull, lifeless hair. This isn't something that anyone wants, so it's important to look after your hair.
