Hair. It’s the difference between a great day and a rubbish one. Whether we like it or not, our hair transforms the way we look. From outlandish and bold to subtle and chic; long or short; light or dark; tied up or loose and long. Changing up the style and colour of your hair is one of the surefire ways to get your mojo back – it’s a tried and true mood-booster! Sometimes, though, we reach a frustrating dead-end when finding solutions for our hair’s health.
All hair products tell us that our hair will feel amazing, incredible, revolutionized, and unreal when we use them – but the truth is, this is rarely the case. Finding the right products that suit your style and type of hair and actually make a difference, is really hard. Some people spend years trying different brands and products before they have that eureka moment! The way our hair looks can greatly affect how we feel day-to-day, therefore everyone deserves to have the best-looking hair they could imagine.
Hair loss or hair thinning
This is a tough one. Although baldness and hair loss is most common in men and is usually genetic, hair loss and hair thinning are also very common problems for women. Losing your hair can come down to many things, including stress, hormones, illness, malnutrition or simply genetics. Whatever the reason, hair loss can result in a person feeling self-conscious and unhappy about the way they look.
There are ways to cope with hair loss, however. Investing in hair transplants seems like an extreme measure, but in fact, it isn’t. Hair transplanting is a fantastic resource for those who want to make a real change to their appearance. Our modern world has made it easier than ever to reverse hair loss; take the opportunity and make the change for yourself.
Damaged, broken hair
Anyone who’s ever bleached their hair will know this struggle. It’s true, blondes do have more fun – until it’s time to try and repair the damage done. Although there are now safe ways to bleach your hair which minimise damage, the fact of the matter is that lightening your hair is brutal on its structure. Bleaching your hair breaks down its pigment, hence the lightening effect – but it also all but destroys its molecular structure.
If you’re someone who might have been a little trigger-happy with the bleach, you might have run out of ideas to fix those broken strands. One simple and cheap way to repair your hair is to use a coconut oil mask. This simply means taking your dry hair, unwashed, and coating it from root to tip in pure coconut oil. Your hair will feel like a ball of grease – that’s how you know it’s working. Wrap your hair tightly in a hair wrap or towel and pin it, then sleep overnight with your hair in the oil. In the morning, shampoo your hair twice and condition it as normal. Your hair will feel better than it has in years!
