Your hair plays a significant factor in your overall appearance and as such, is an important part of feeling good about yourself and feeling confident. Having healthy hair is not a guarantee for anyone, in fact, some people suffer from hair loss and other problems that can lower your self esteem. Let’s look at some of the most common problems and how to resolve them.
Grey hair – For some, going grey is all part and parcel of getting older. There are many celebrities that have totally mastered the more distinguished, grey hair look. George Clooney is probably one of the most well publicised ‘silver foxes’. For many other people, going grey is not a nice experience and sometimes, grey hair can also make your skin look washed out. Luckily, there are loads of ways you can disguise or improve the appearance of grey hair; from an all over dye to having some highlights that break up the grey.
Hair loss – Hair loss can happen to anybody. Young or old, male or female, hair loss is usually a very unwelcome experience. There are so many different causes of hair loss; it can be genetic, it can be caused by stressful events, or you could even suffer from conditions such as alopecia.
There are a number of alternative treatments for hair loss, for those with lots of money to spend, you could always try a hair transplant. For those with a more limited budget, there are lots of products available that will help hair regrowth. Examples include hair thickening shampoo and hair thickening spray. Hair loss can be embarrassing for some people, so any help available should be tried to see how effective it is in restoring hair growth.
Greasy hair – Often greasy hair can look as though it hasn’t been washed for a while, but some people can get greasy looking hair straight after they have washed it. The causes can vary from a product build up that can clog up both the scalp and the hair strands, to over-washing and even hormone changes in the body. If you touch your hair too often and are constantly brushing it, this can also make it look greasy quickly. You should try to wash your hair a maximum of every 2/3 days to prevent it from starting to look greasy.
Damaged hair – If you have had a lot of colouring done to your hair or you haven’t had it cut regularly, it can lead to damaged hair such as split ends and frizz. The best way to treat this is to get a special repair treatment and to make sure that you have regular trips to the hair salon. Bad diets and sun exposure can also have a big impact on the health of your hair, so conditioning treatments are a good idea. If you have a lot of hair damage, you might be best to opt for a shorter hair cut until it starts looking healthier.
