I blame Kate Middleton.
Her and her perfect/beautiful/magnificent, “I’m a Disney Princess” hairstyles have set an unrealistic expectation for all of us plebs who face real problems when it comes to our hair.
But even if you haven’t been as genetically blessed as Kate, there’s no need to despair. There are some very simple solutions to very common hair problems that we all face every day.
Problem 1: Frizzy hair.
Solution: Put down the brush.
It always seems like such a good idea at the time. The brush has long been promised as the miracle instrument that can tame any fly-aways and ensure neatness.
Sadly, this is not the case for all of us.
For some, the brush is at the root of all our frizzy-haired issues. According to WebMD, brushing disrupts the hair cuticle and stretches it, making it break.
Step away from the brush, friends.
Just as an FYI, you should know that this is an advertorial for L’Oreal.
Problem 2: Thin hair.
Solution: A hair-thickening product.
From my extensive research amongst my friends, I have found out that thin hair is a surprisingly common problem. Not only does it make your hair more brittle, it can also be the cause of so many other hair dramas.
Using a hair thickening shampoo, conditioner and serum like those in the L’Oreal Paris Elvive Fibralogy thickening haircare line can help to expand and thicken your hair. The range is available at all leading retailers for $5.95 for the shampoo and conditioner, and $9.95 for the serum.
It’s the choice of many thin-haired people, with the serum being voted Product of the Year 2015 by the Australian public in a Nielsen poll of over 15,000 people. Consumers even shared their stories in the latest Elvive Fibralogy campaign, see below for photos and more details.
As an added bonus, it could help with a few of your other hair dramas too.
Problem 3: Flat hair.
Solution: Get your dry shampoo out.
Thick-haired people may not understand the frustration that comes with having limp hair that falls sadly on your shoulders.
Trust me when I say the struggle is real, and very annoying.
