Common Hair Problems (and What to Do About Them)

Stressful tresses? We've got solutions.

We all have our own particular set of hair issues. Even those with seemingly perfect hair have their own hair grievances. Whether it’s thin hair or frizzy hair or hair that seems impossible to style, we feel your pain and have been there. While we all have our hair problems, there are also tons of solutions out there to treat and even heal your locks. From dry and damaged hair to frizzy hair, check out some of the most common hair woes and what you can do about them:

Follow these tips to solve your hair problem.

1. Dry, Damaged Hair

Your hair has been through the wringer: Whether it is the latest color trend or straightening treatment, you’ve been there, done that. Pretty awesome, right? But after a while, however, your hair choices can catch up with you and end up giving you dry, damaged locks prone to breakage. To help restore integrity and revive strands on the brink of irreparable damage, use a weekly hair mask, like TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Instant Recovery Mask at least once a week to inject some much-needed moisture to your hair. And, we hate to say it, but giving your hair a breather from damaging coloring/heat/treatments can really help your treatments work their magic!

2. Frizzy Hair

Those with fine, curly, or wavy hair may consider humidity changes to be one of the most challenging of hair problems, as it usually ends up encouraging frizzy strands that need extra effort to tame.

To tame frizz, we suggest using an anti-frizz product, like Nexxus Frizz Defy Active Frizz Control Anti-Frizz Sheets, to tame flyaways and wayward strands. Drying your hair naturally or with the cool-shot button on a blow-dryer is also another way to urge in more sleekness. We also love to wear loose headbands at night to help minimize any frizz along the crown and forehead edges.

3. Fine Hair

You crave volume for your fine, sometimes limp hair. In some instances, getting fuller and thicker locks can be found in your shampoo or conditioner. A volumizing system like TIGI Copyright Custom Care Volume Shampoo and Conditioner can work to help make your hair bouncy as it creates fullness.

4. Split Ends

We’ve all been there: You think you don’t need a trim and months later your hair breaks, leaving your locks damaged. Your first line of defense is to get a trim around every four to six weeks to remove any egregious damage; in-between trims, though, it’s also best to treat hair with regular masks and use a leave-in spray to help keep locks healthy-looking and nourished.

5. Knots

Knots can be a nuisance, but thankfully is one of the issues that is also easiest to resolve. Those with long hair are especially afflicted with this hair woe, so apart from making sure hair is smooth and manageable with the use of the proper shampoo and conditioner for your hair type, it’s also beneficial to use a leave-in conditioner, like TRESemmé Pro Pure Detangle & Smooth Leave-In Conditioner, to help prevent knots and help detangle without damage.

6. Dandruff

Those pesky flakes can crop up on anyone’s head. Generally, this is the result of a dry scalp that can turn into flakes and make your head itch. Try a scalp scrub that’s formulated to help with dandruff and an itchy scalp, like RE-fresh Sea Mineral + Cleanse Exfoliating Scalp Scrub.
