Hair is a defining feature and a point of pride for most Indian women. So, it’s not far-fetched that hair concerns and issues are top of mind a lot of the time. No one is a stranger to the one-off bad hair day, but when those become regular, it’s a problem. All hair behaves differently and depending on your hair type, you will definitely have one particular hair concern that plagues you. It is quite clearly a great equaliser cause judging by Kareena Kapoor Khan‘s post on Instagram today, even Bebo has struggled with hair concerns, especially after shoots.
So today, we’ve listed down a few recurring problems people go through on the daily and the easiest solution to battle them!
Problem #1: Extra Frizz
When the hair’s moisture level falls below normal levels, it leads to hair becoming frizzy. While humidity is the main culprit here, factors like dryness, damage, sun exposure, heat from styling tools and genetics, also play a role.
Problem #2: Dry Hair
While squeaky-clean hair is a great goal to have, you may run the risk of overdoing it by washing your hair daily. Over-shampooing strips hair of its natural oils, leading to roughness and dryness. Chlorine, pollution, chemical treatments, improper diet, incorrect hair care practices, and stress also affect hair quality.
Problem #3: Hair Loss
Do you feel your hair is losing its volume? Now, losing 50 to 100 strands a day is normal; any more is definitely a cause for concern. Stress, hormonal imbalance, medication, and conditions like menopause, play a huge role in hair loss and thinning.
Problem #4: Heat & Colour Damage
Now, more than ever before, it’s popular to embrace one’s natural hair texture. But I’d be lying if I say it’s not tempting to straighten or curl my hair every now and then. Similarly, while we all know that regular colouring leads to hair damage, it’s difficult to not want to rush to the salon every time I see a favourite influencer blessing my feed with their glamourous hair. It then becomes extremely crucial to keep in mind the long-term effects of heat and chemical exposure on hair—dullness, breakage, split ends, et al.
Problem #5: Split, Rough Ends
Split ends happen when the oil from the scalp doesn’t reach the ends of the hair. This causes hair shafts to split at the tips. Dryness, excessive hair brushing, lack of conditioning, and certain environmental factors, also lead to rough ends and hair breakage.
The Miracle Ingredient: Moroccan Argan
Moroccan Argan is increasingly being used in hair care products, and seems to be the perfect prayer to treating these common hair concerns. Its regenerative properties are known to restore hair strength, shine and softness. It cleans scalp and hair thoroughly without leaving residues. It is definitely a good idea to invest in hair products that contain this miracle ingredient, and my eye is currently on St. Botanica‘s Moroccan Argan haircare range.
