It’s not called the crowning glory for nothing – our hair is more than what meets the eyes. According to psychologists, the role hair plays is a form of identity and self-expression. It frames the face and it becomes a prominent part of first impressions. We cut it, dye it, shave it and style it. We always want to have it at its best because a good hair day helps make good impressions especially when meeting new faces and building new relationships.
Keeping your hair healthy (and clean) at all times, however, takes a little bit of a challenge. To help you get that healthy hair amidst external conditions, here are some tips and a couple of tricks that you can easily do to resolve these 5 most common hair problems that Filipinos encounter:
Shampoo Residue a.k.a “tirang shampoo”
If you’re crazy with styling products and/or shampoo, you’ve probably experienced having gunky flakes on your scalp. Because even our well-loved haircare products can leave residue on the scalp that accumulates over time which may turn into dandruff flakes.
It is usually the unsightly white flakes on your hair and sometimes even on your shoulders. And what makes it even worse is that it takes a while before we finally notice it and your close friends are too shy to even mention them to you.
These “invisible flakes” may come occasionally, but instead of applying another chemical-based product on your hair, you may try a simple home remedy like apple cider vinegar. This DIY hair remedy is getting popular for its natural way of removing product residues. Just dilute it with water, apply onto scalp and allow to sit for a minute or two then rinse thoroughly.
It occurs when you have overactive sweat and oil glands on your scalp. Just like body odor, this smelly problem can affect your confidence and make you seem a little bit socially awkward. Now that you’re aware, you have it stop it, ASAP.
If you’re the type to try out natural remedies, you can use lemon or tomato juice or both to combat the bacteria that are causing your hair to smell bad. Lemon can also combat dandruff, one of the many causes of a smelly scalp, while tomato pulp exhibits antibacterial properties that can help in getting rid of the odor-causing bacteria on your scalp. Or a smarter and faster way to do it is to wash your scalp and hair with an anti-dandruff shampoo, Head & Shoulders Cool Menthol.
It revitalizes your scalp and cleanse with a tingly menthol fresh scent that cools and leaves your scalp clean, odor-free, and dandruff-free. It is dermatologically tested, PH balanced and boosted with antioxidants for gentle care of hair and scalp so it can ensure to provide the best haircare you need.
In tropical countries like the Philippines, the weather, if not hot, is humid. We can attribute the unwanted curls and frizz to this external condition. This is because the weather causes hydrogen bonds to form between water molecules and the proteins of our hair.
Of course, we understand how unmanageable frizzy hair is, and although incorporating coconut oil in your haircare routine is a good idea, having a hair product that gets you is still the best way to go. Look for a shampoo or conditioner product that contains added moisturizers to cleanse and restore dry, frizzy hair and leave it 100% dandruff-free and luscious, just like Head & Shoulders Supreme shampoo and conditioner with its luxurious Moroccan Argan Crème active ingredient, fuse with floral perfume. Argan, picked from the Moroccan “Tree of Life”, is known as a natural luxurious ingredient for hair and skin moisturization.
Dandruff is a condition that is caused by various factors such as irritated or oily scalp, stress, and dry skin among others. Although it appears to be common and non-contagious, it can be embarrassing sometimes.
When the skin cells on the scalp shed more quickly than usual, dandruff flakes usually fall off. There are a lot of ways to prevent this from happening: stress management, healthy diet, reduce your hair care products, and use an anti-dandruff shampoo that can address your scalp’s needs. Head & Shoulders is equipped with Magnetic Lifting Foam that lifts away dandruff, itch, and oil while keeping your hair moisturized.
Men and women’s scalp differ in needs. If you’re one of those who are regular gym-goers or one who loves to stay under the sun, it’s time to check on your scalp condition because heat and sweat combined together leaves your scalp oily and itchy.
Men’s scalp loses more moisture and releases more sebum than women. If you’re into looking for simple and easy solutions to address this, baking soda is your go-to home remedy but for a hassle-free solution, start a healthier haircare habit or grab this ULTRA solution over-the-counter anti-dandruff shampoo.
Perfect to meet the ever-evolving standards of men, Head & Shoulders Ultra Men Old Spice leaves you a dandruff-free hair that contains ingredients that deeply purifies, balances oily scalp and reduces scalp itch with a manly scent.
While it’s not easy to prevent these hair problems that we encounter every day, it’s better that you prevent them with consistent and right hair care habits and treatments. That’s why it’s never too late to check up on your hair situation and trust only the anti – dandruff shampoo that believes nothing should stop you from feeling confident and enjoying life to the fullest – Head & Shoulders.
