Hair Problem Fixes

Hair can be long and wavy, short and straight, frizzy and unmanageable, or smooth and shiny. Hair comes in many different lengths, styles, colours and textures. No matter the type of hair you have, just about everyone has a hair problem that they would like to treat. It’s safe to say that we all fall prey to at least one hair problem at some point in our lives. Below we share a few tips and recommend products that can help you manage these everyday hair problems.

Hair Damaged by Bleaching

Hair Damaged by Bleaching

Of all the colouring methods, bleach is potentially the most damaging and should ideally always be done professionally. Bleaching raises the outer cuticle of your hair, allowing the bleaching agent to fully penetrate the hair. However, repeated bleaching can permanently raise the cuticle scales and allow rapid and continuous loss of moisture. Damage from bleach includes dry, brittle hair that has lost its elasticity and is more prone to breakage and split ends. Bleached hair is also more porous and swollen; therefore, it is more vulnerable to other chemical and non-chemical processes. These include everything from permanent wave solutions in curling or straightening, to regular heated styling with blow-dryers, straightening irons and brushes. While any and all bleaches have a damaging effect on your hair’s protein structure, the more often you bleach or highlight your hair, the more damaged it will become. Plex products help repair and minimise damage during the bleaching process. The acids and polymers in plex treatments act as a shield to protect these bonds as well as assisting in repairing broken micro-bonds. OSMO’s Chromaplex is the next evolution in plex in that it contains a conditioning agent. You can benefit from the anti-breakage technology in two ways; as an additive mixed in with your colour, and/or conditioners and treatments with plex ingredients that help strengthen and repair hair on a day-to-day basis. Both methods help to repair and restructure broken bonds in your hair and create new inter-linking bonds for lasting strength.

Hair Loss

According to research it is normal to lose up to 100 hairs a day; therefore, losing small clumps doesn’t usually mean imminent baldness, as hair almost always grows back. Hair grows from the base of hair follicles at the rate of 1 cm a month for about three years. The severity of hair loss can vary from a small area to the entire body. Typically, inflammation or scarring is not present. Hair loss in some people causes psychological distress. Hair loss is more common than you think and it can happen to anyone. If you are experiencing excessive hair loss, you will need to see a doctor. However, there are products that we can recommend that prevent further hair loss. Products such as Argan oil contain ingredients that act as blockers that work to prevent damage and further hair loss. The Bosley Rebalancing & Finishing Treatment is a wonderful finishing product that provides nutrition, making hair silky, smooth and glossy. Burdock Root Oil helps maintain a healthy scalp and strengthens hair. The Argan Oil in this product provides fantastic nutrition adding a silky, smooth shine to hair. It contains LifeXtend complex to help fortify hair and ColourKeeper to assist in extending colour. It is a great boost in protection for hair follicles, assisting in the prevention of hair loss.

Hair Growth

According to research, hair grows 2,54 cms every few months. Most people experience a growth rate of about 15,24 cms per year; however, this can vary from one individual to the next, based on issues such as illness, nutrition and stress. Hair goes through a growth cycle that includes a period of growth, a period of rest and then shedding or falling out. If you are experiencing hair loss or you just want your hair to grow faster, it is possible to promote hair growth by using a few simple techniques. However, you should consult your doctor if you are experiencing excessive hair loss. Here are a few things you can do to promote hair growth: you can massage your scalp with a mixture of almond oil and rosemary and peppermint essential oils. Add three or four drops of peppermint and rosemary essential oils to a tablespoon of almond oil and massage into your scalp twice daily. These essential oils may help to stimulate new hair growth when used in scalp massage. Cleanse your hair and scalp once weekly with a clarifying shampoo. Clarifying shampoos help to remove impurities, excess oil and residue from your scalp and hair follicles. However, don't replace your regular shampoo with clarifying shampoo. Clarifying shampoos are generally too harsh for everyday use. Also, it is recommended that you take a vitamin B-complex supplement. According to author Hofstein, B-complex vitamins, and in particular the B Vitamin Biotin, are necessary for stimulating new hair growth and preventing hair loss.

Hair Volume

The reality is fine thin hair happens. Blame it on heredity, hormones, the passage of time, or not taking good care of your hair. More stylists report that clients are always on the lookout for ways to get more volume. So, what are you to do if you have fine hair? Here are a few tips that will help you pump up the volume. The first step when choosing your shampoo is to determine whether your hair is oily or dry, and selecting the shampoo formula accordingly. Volumising shampoos and conditioners are the formulae of choice for most women with fine, thin hair. These shampoos cleanse gently without stripping the hair or leaving unwanted build-up; furthermore, they actually make hair feel thicker and look fuller. The conditioners soften and detangle without build-up. Instead, gently blot your hair with your towel when you step out of the shower.
Hair colour can be one of your best friends if you have fine, thin hair for two reasons. First, the colour can be placed strategically to make your hair look fuller. For example, if your hair is dark your hairstylist can create lighter highlights that will diminish the contrast between your hair and your scalp. He or she may also create a multi-dimensional look, with two or three shades such as a medium base with highlights and lowlights, to give the illusion of movement. However, avoid too much bleach or overlightening, which can lead to damage or breakage.
