It isn’t nice when you look in the mirror and see damaged hair. However, none of us are impervious to hair problems. Whether it’s dry hair because of cold weather or damaged hair because of coloring, many of us deal with common hair problems on a day to day basis. That doesn’t mean you have to put up with them. There are many ways you can nurse your hair back to health, some of them home remedies that have been used for centuries. So, whatever your hair is suffering from, take a look at these quick and easy solutions.


Dry Hair is a nightmare to deal with, especially during the Autumn and Winter in some countries. It becomes unruly and styling is near to impossible. It’s obvious what dry hair is missing – moisture. But, it isn’t always easy to get the moisture back in quickly. Using bucket loads of conditioner just doesn’t hack sometimes. So, try this homemade remedy instead. Add a teaspoon of olive oil, two teaspoons of mayonnaise and one whole egg and mix together. The consistency makes it easy to apply to your hair. Brush through and cover for thirty minutes. Continue with the treatment for as long as you think you need it but no more than three times a week. 

Fading Color There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a hair color and seeing it fade a few weeks later. If you haven’t got time to get to the salon, don’t fear. Find a semi-permanent color that’s one shade darker than yours. Apply to your hair and leave in for ten minutes. The added color should help to revive the color and shine to your hair without too much of a change. It’s not a permanent solution but it will tide you over until you can get to a hairdresser.

Hair Loss can occur for many reasons. Loss of hair is common after pregnancy because pregnancy hormones work to keep hair healthy and thick. The sudden loss of those hormones can result in clumps of hair coming loose after each wash. Hair loss can also be the result of stress after a significant occasion, like a car crash or death of a loved one. Sometimes, the best remedy for this is to seek counselling, but you can also visit an aesthetic clinic that specializes in hair replacement. Taking a multivitamin supplement will also ensure you have the right nutrients for your hair to grow healthily.


Frizzy hair is common during the Winter because we use so much dry heat. We use hair dryers more regularly, we use indoor heat to keep us warm and we use car heaters as well. This strips our hair of moisture which often turns natural curls into frizz. To aid styling, pull your hair into a low bun while wet and leave for 20 minutes. When you take the bun out, your hair should be flatter and easier to manage.

Don’t put up with unruly hair because there’s a solution for every problem out there!
