Treatments to Fix Common Hair Issues

From a frizzed out mane to hair color that fades after only a few washes, getting the hair you want can be an impossible goal. Know this, though: even the richest and most beautiful celebrities deal with bad hair days and common hair conundrums.

The key to an enviable coiffure, ladies, is treating your hair with respect and reserving a small portion of time to hair maintenance every single day. You can begin by keeping an arsenal of hair products in your home. Both store bought and DIY home remedies will work depending on your needs.

Below are three of the most common hair problems everyday women face along with their corresponding fixes.

Brittle and Breaking
Whether you have thick, coarse hair or the fine, straight variety, hair breakage is a very common problem. The biggest culprits? Heating products and lack of moisture. To prevent dry and brittle hair, use ultra moisturizing shampoo and conditioners. Products from L'Oreal's Advanced Haircare line (Triple Resist) are an affordable option that have been clinically tested to reduce hair damage due to breakage by 64 percent. Also deep condition your hair at least once a week and always apply a heat protectant before using heated tools.

Deflated 'Do
Even women with the thickest of hair sometimes deal with limp locks. To add a little volume, apply a volumizing mousse to damp hair before drying. Another trick is to lift up small sections of your hair and use hairspray underneath. Tease with a comb, drop hair and repeat all over. Comb over your hair gently to smooth it out, but be careful not to undo the teasing. Style as desired and follow up with a finishing spray to eliminate frizz, keep hair in place and protect it from the elements.

Fading Color

With the number of women who color their hair, it's no wonder so many complain about the dreaded fade that occurs after only a few weeks. Even permanent dyes fade -- especially if you're going red. In addition to using quality hair dyes, you should always use shampoos, conditioners and hair products that lock in color and prevent fading. L'Oreal Advanced Haircare also has a portion of products dedicated to keeping your hair color vibrant. The line promises eight weeks of vibrant color along with total nourishment from root to tip. You can find the products at your local pharmacy, convenience store or supermarket.
