This is one condition we wish had a more permanent solution. We all know and use techniques to keep our hair well-conditioned, but most of them are so very time-consuming and tiring with a need for repeated upkeep. We miss out on it once, and our hair goes back to looking and feeling like a broomstick.

Remedy: Do not wash hair with hot water. Always use cold water or water that is at room temperature. Dry and frizzy hair when you walk out of the shower is an indication that the water was too hot for your hair.

5. Hair Color Changes

Here is another trouble that threatens to come closer and closer with age. The older you get, the lesser the thickness of your hair becomes. We spend half our lives caring for this, and we still end up losing most of our hair to hair thinning. If only there were a way to regrow hair as you age.

Remedy: Workout. Yes, you read that right. Exercise increases the blood circulation through the body that therefore helps in stimulation of the scalp.

7. Frizz

Unruly hair! It so happens that there will always come a few moments in our life when our hair seems to have a mind of its own, and it just won’t listen to us. It will frizz no matter how important the day is and look like a mess. Just a small miss of that frizz care products and your hair jumps on that chance for revenge. There are a number of products in the market for this, but a more permanent solution will be welcome any day.

Remedy: Control your frizzy, unmanageable hair with coconut oil. Take a few drops of coconut oil. Rub it between the palms of your hand and apply it along the length of your hair. Do not use too much oil. Otherwise, your hair may end up looking greasy.

8. Loss Of Shine

Dull hair is a complaint that all women have. All this pollution and stress, how much can anyone’s hair take? So it slowly will lose its shine. But what if there was a way which on a more permanent path gave us a solution, other than our shampoos and other hair care products?

Remedy: For a naturally beautiful hair, massage your hair with hot oil (coconut, olive, almond or castor oil). Wrap your head with a hot towel for a while. Either keep it overnight or wash it off with warm water.

Additional Tips
