Hair Rehab 101

In the effort to look beautiful, women spend millions (if not billions) of dollars every year on various hair care products, styling tools, and treatments. But sometimes doing too much to the hair can cause an overload. Just about every woman has had a bad hair day or experience at one time or another. The good news is that for every hair mishap, there are solutions that have the ability to correct the problem.

Believe it or not, the hair – just like the skin – can become prone to sun damage. This hair mishap is most commonly experienced by women that are fond of coloring their hair. The common signs of tresses suffering from sun damage include significant fading of the color, lack of color on the ends and thinning, wispy or frizzy strands.

Combine chemically treated hair with tons of fun in the sun and it’ll only be a matter of time before the health of your tresses begins to fade. The solution? Invest in quality hair care products that are formulated to treat sun damaged hair. Glazes and deep conditioning treatments are ideal for remedying this problem and are available at any store at fairly affordable prices. Follow the instructions for application and over time, you’ll gradually notice the life coming back to your tresses.

Fans of DIY treatments have the option of applying mayonnaise onto the hair and smoothing it from roots to tips. Do this step while taking a shower and give it a few minutes to set in. Then rinse and you’ll be good to go.

Are you experiencing dry hair in general?

This common hair mishap can target any hair type and is very noticeable. From massive split ends, brittleness and dullness in appearance, sporting dry hair is anything but glamorous. To turn this mishap around, start looking into hair care products that specialize in providing intense moisturization. Once-a-week conditioning packets are a good place to start, as well as getting a trim at the salon to get rid of the split ends and breakage.

Need something simpler?

Olive oil will do the trick. Mix the olive oil with a teaspoon of light avocado oil and smooth it onto your hair from roots to ends. Then spend a few minutes in the sun. The heat activates the natural properties of the olive oil, which gives your hair a deep moisturizing treatment. Rinse afterward and style as usual.

Have your tresses fallen flat lately?

Do you find that your locks won’t do anything you want it to, even after using heated styling tools and voluminizing sprays? If your hair also lacks a natural sheen and feels rough to the touch or slightly greasy, these are all signs of hair that are suffering from product build-up. Days of heavy styling, hair care products and other related practices easily accumulates on the scalp and even regular shampooing and conditioning doesn’t always remedy the issue.

Clarifying shampoos are specially formulated to remove product build-up and restore life back to the hair. Clarifying shampoos range in cost from $20 to $40. For women that don’t have the extra money to spend on such products, the best home remedy is to use a mixture of vinegar and water to shampoo through the scalp and hair. Combine with a quality conditioner and product build-up will be a hair mishap of the past.
