Life is hard, hair shouldn’t be! With so many other things to focus on, wouldn’t it be nice if your hair had less issues than a magazine rack? While we can’t imagine every hair problem you’ll encounter, we have put together a how to guide for fixing the 8 most common hair issues. So continue reading and make your morning routine a little less stressful!
Issue #1: Damage with a capital D
There are multiple types of damage that hair can experience. The main two types of damage are heat damage and color damage. If you’re lucky enough to experience both types of damage, make sure to read both solutions and the note at the bottom about how to incorporate both into your hair care routine.
Solution: Heat Damage:
To prevent damage before it starts or before it gets worse, apply 1-2 drops of Medusa Hair Oil to your hair from roots to tips before using a heat tool on your hair. This will protect the hair strand while providing beautiful shine. To repair damage once it’s done, apply 1-2 drops of Medusa Hair Oil every day on damage to moisturize, strengthen, and smooth hair. For more intensive repair, add Medusa Hair Mask to your conditioner for a boost, or apply directly to hair for 5 minutes and rinse.
Solution: Color Damage:
With the ever increasing popularity of hair colors from pastel to bold many people are faced with dry, damaged locks when they look in the mirror. To help repair the often extreme damage created by the color process, massage Medusa Hair Mask into wet hair in the evening and leave in while you sleep. Cover your pillow with a towel to protect it. When you wake up wash your hair and apply 1-2 drops of Medusa Hair Oil before styling.
Solution: Heat & Color Damage:
For hair damaged by both heat and color, apply 1-2 drops of Medusa Hair Oil daily before styling and then use the Medusa Hair Mask as an overnight treatment once a week.
Issue #2: Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Unfortunately, hair loss is a reality for many people. While you can absolutely be bald and beautiful, if that’s not for you, follow the steps below to stimulate your scalp and motivate your mane!
Massage Medusa Hair Mask into wet hair in the evening and leave in while you sleep. Cover your pillow with a towel to protect it. When you wake up wash your hair and apply 1-2 drops of Medusa Hair Oil directly to your scalp. Make sure to massage the oil into your scalp to stimulate blood flow while the essential oils help strengthen and promote hair growth.
Issue #3: The Itchy & Scratchy Show
Have you ever run your hands through your hair only to end up looking like you’ve got a miniature snow storm following you around? No one likes to stand out because their dry, itchy scalp is creating its own weather system. Read along to find out how to create clear skies and cool scalps from here on out.
The first step is to remove all of the buildup sitting on your scalp causing it to itch and flake. Before shampoo and conditioner, wet our Hair Buildup Be-gone bar and massage directly onto the scalp. This will remove any excess oil and buildup on the surface. To moisturize and heal your scalp, apply Medusa Hair Mask in place of conditioner and leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing. If you have extensive dryness or damage massage Medusa Hair Mask into wet hair in the evening and leave in while you sleep. Cover your pillow with a towel to protect it. When you wake up rinse your hair and style as normal.
Issue #4: It’s Not Easy Being Greasy
There’s good shine, and then there is “I dipped my head in French fry oil” shine. Sometimes no matter how clean you are, your hair betrays you and looks like it hasn’t been washed in weeks. Thankfully we’ve got a solution that will leave your lunch being the only greasy part of your day.
The first step is to unclog your hair follicles and balance oil production. Before shampoo and conditioner, wet our Hair Buildup Be-gone bar and massage directly onto the scalp. This will remove any excess oil and buildup on the surface. If you’re still feeling shinier than you’d like, apply Beach Bum Texturizing cream to your roots to help soak up any excess oil and give you beautiful volume.
Issue #5: Splitsville
All breakups are hard, but none are harder than the ones that happen between your hair strands and themselves. Split ends leave your hair looking dull, frizzy, and messy, none of which are a great thing. On the plus side, this is a split we can prevent through minimal work, unlike most other breakups.
Before bed, apply Medusa Hair Oil directly to the damaged sections of hair. Follow this with Instant Blowout Hair Balm to strengthen, moisturize, and protect strands before styling in the morning. Over time this will prevent new breaks from happening while minimizing the appearance of already split ends.
Issue 6: Mrs. Frizzle
Not everyone can rock the locks of our favorite animated educator. If you are one of the many who doesn’t look at your frizz and think “Yay”, we’ve got a simple lesson in how to tame your tresses.
Apply 2-3 drops of Medusa Hair Oil between your hands and rub together. Once hands are evenly coated, run through hair from roots to tip. This will coat hair helping it to stay in place and improving its hydration. Bonus Points: The more time you use the Medusa Hair Oil, the healthier your hair will be and the less it will frizz!
Issue 7: Limping Along
Limp is never a good thing, whether it’s describing bread sticks, your walk, and especially your hair. Unfortunately, many of the products on the market claiming they’ll give your unbelievable volume or luscious waves simply end up weighing your hair down. Like many things in life, the key to fuller hair starts with the idea that less really is more.
The first step is to remove all of the buildup weighing your hair down. Before shampoo and conditioner, wet our Hair Buildup Be-gone bar and massage directly onto the scalp. This will remove any excess oil and buildup on your scalp and hair strands. To provide a boost to hair massage a dime size amount of Beach Bum Texturizing Cream in to just the roots. Remember, the more products you add to your hair, the limper it will look.
Issue 8: Welcome to the Dull House
You’re smart, you’re vibrant, and you’re a barrel of laughs. Unfortunately, your hair is the only thing anyone is focusing on and it’s duller than a box of rocks. Thankfully, with a little work, your hair can shine just as bright as you do!
To brighten hair daily, apply 1-2 drops of Medusa Hair Oil every day to provide shine while also smoothing and strengthening hair. For more intensive shine, add Medusa Hair Mask to your conditioner for a boost, or apply directly to hair after shampooing and leave on for 5 minutes and rinse.
