5 Ways To Get rid of Oily Hair

Hello, FairFaxFam!

Oily hair can be frustration among many of you. It gives rise to problems such as itchy scalp & wet dandruff. Fear not, as there are a number of ways it can be remedied so as to have less of an impact on your life. No matter what the cause for your oily hair problem, FairFax have various Hair Tips And Tricks to help ensure it doesn’t stop you from looking and feeling great.

1. Don’t apply too much hair serum: Do not apply serums and oils too. A handy tip is to spread a drop of hair serum on the fronts and backs of your hands and then apply it, rather than just using your palms to ensure more even distribution.

2. Do not wash your hair too often: When hair gets greasy or oily quickly, our first instinct is to wash it more frequently. Washing your hair too often before it gets the chance to replenish its natural oils can damage your hair. Using more hair products makes the scalp’s sebum glands produce more oils, giving rise to a greasy scalp.

3. Don’t use too much conditioner: If you have an oily scalp, be careful of conditioners, and only apply them to the bottom sections of your hair which are the ends and mid-lengths and experiment with different textures in order to find the best kind for your hair type.

4. Always use clean hairbrush: Clean your comb/ hairbrush every week to remove any build-up and prevent it from transferring onto your hair.

5. Avoid touching your hair too much: You often play with your hair. No matter how clean you think your hands are but, doing so transfers oil, dirt from your hands to your hair. It may also steal away essential oils, leading to dry hair, hair breakage, and even cause hair loss.

5 Ways to fix dry, damaged hair

Hello, FairFaxFam!

It’s that time of the year when your hair feels drier, damaged, lack of moisture, and dull. Do you also suffer from dry, damaged hair? Here are some ways to fix it. Check out the Hair Tips And Tricks shared by FairFax that can help you to treat your damaged hair and turn it into healthy, shiny and beautiful hair again!

1. Never Curl/Straighten Wet Hair: Have you ever been so incredibly late that you decided to straighten/curl your wet hair? Please say no, because it damages your hair so badly. If your hair is not dry when using hair styling tools, it draws out the hair’s elasticity and vitamins, causing severe breakage.

2. Do not wash your hair too often: Washing your hair too often before it gets the chance to replenish its natural oils can damage your hair. Your hair can become very dry.

3. Be careful with oils: Oils have been used for hair care for centuries to treat dry, damaged hair, and your scalp also naturally produces oil.  Don’t overdo it. Oils can end up being heavy in your hair, so start with drops on the tips or damaged areas. Make sure you wash it off as it attracts dirt, dust, and pollutants and leaves your hair feeling greasy.

4. Know when to get a haircut: At the end of the day, you know when your hair is beyond repairable and when you should see your stylist get a cut. When you have split ends and a lack of moisture … it’s time for a haircut.

5. Apply conditioner the right way: Many of you, use conditioner after you wash your hair with shampoo, but you should not only focus on the damaged tips. You want to use a conditioner to prevent damage from continuing in the first place. So, start at the tip and massage slowly. Gradually work your way upwards.

Hello, FairFaxFam!

Are you tired of your dry, irritated, and itching scalp? Or do you have trouble with dandruff? You often forget that your scalp needs care and loving treatment. Fortunately, you can easily overcome these problems. Check out the Hair Tips And Tricks shared by FairFax that can help you to banish dry, flaky scalp and bring back a healthy scalp & happy hair!

1. Switch up your diet: As we have said before, your diet is way more important to your scalp’s health. Adding biotin, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, along with plenty of fruits and veggies can help improve your scalp’s oil production.

2. Start washing your hair more often: If you currently wash your hair only 3 times a week, try washing your hair every other day.

3. Try an Apple Cider Vinegar: ACV is more like a conditioner, use it to get rid of dandruff. Mix 1 teaspoon of ACV to two cups of water. Pour the ACV+water mixture over your scalp and hair. Massage it into your scalp. Shampoo your hair and rinse carefully.

4. Don’t scratch your scalp: Scratching your dandruff causes your scalp to feel itchy. Instead of using your sharp nails to scratch and irritate your scalp, try gently tapping your scalp with the palm of your hand to relieve the itching sensation without irritation.

5. Change your hair care products: If your current hair care routine is making your scalp unhappy, it’s time to switch things up. A good shampoo and conditioner pair should nourish, protect, and moisturize your hair and scalp without creating more dandruff or causing irritation.
