The weather can commonly cause dryness of the scalp. It is not recommended to expose the scalp or hair to extreme climates.
- The cold produces dryness and dermatitis.

Here we present a series of hair problems that are very common and anyone can have suffered from them at some point in life
Other hair problems are:
- Hair loss
Hair loss can be attributed to different causes, such as dandruff, excess sebum, diseases of the digestive system, nervous system disorders, pregnancy, emotional problems, and infectious diseases. However, it is necessary to take into account that it is common for an average of 50 to 80 hairs to fall off or fall on a daily basis, which is considered normal.
- Cut the hair regularly to avoid falling.
- Use natural products (shampoo, deep moisturizing with masks) and avoid the frequent use of irons and hair dryers.
- Take biotin, iron, zinc, omega 3 and 6.
Dandruff represents an imbalance in the natural process of removing cells in the scalp. People suffering from dandruff remove dead cells from the scalp at a much higher frequency than normal. A large amount of detached cells causes a proliferation of microorganisms (the microbial flora) in the scalp. Dandruff causes itching, reddening of the scalp and hair loss due to involvement of the root.
You should keep your hair clean, if necessary you should wash it every 2 days, include foods rich in fatty acid such as cod oil and avoid fried foods, sugar, chocolate, eggs and milk with fat.
Long hair can present much more dryness than short hair since it has gone through factors that affect it for a longer time. The dryness is mainly due to the factors that prevent adequate sebaceous secretion although there are other external causes that can cause it, such as:
- Have a balanced diet.
- Cut the hair regularly so that the tips regenerate and do not damage the hair strand
- Apply once or twice a week a hair mask containing essential oils and natural ingredients that nourish the hair.
- Oily hair
The causes of having oily hair are usually internal and are influenced by 3 factors: a diet high in fatty foods, hormonal imbalances and washing the hair very often.
You do not have to use a shampoo for oily hair if you wash it every day, since strong products, instead of avoiding fat, aggravate the problem. It is advisable to wash it and have one or two days in between. In addition, it is important to follow a balanced diet.
- Lack of brightness
This problem starts with a bad diet and low in vitamins. Other factors that can cause it are the effects of the sun, the water of the pool and the sea, using the wrong shampoo, brushing the hair severely damages the cuticle seriously and drying it with rough towels, in addition to the hard friction that is carried out at the moment of dry it with the towel.
Perform a deep hydration treatment with a hair mask once or twice a week, it will help you recover the natural balance of your hair and remember to brush it before going to sleep which will stimulate the blood circulation of your head, something very healthy for the oxygenation of the hair.
You also have to use special products that protect your hair from the sun when you go to the beach or swim.
What are the common causes of hair problems?
- Genes and inheritance
Androgenic alopecia (AGA) is a type of baldness and is inherited through the genes of the father. In such cases, the use of medication such as PRP, Minoxidil, the use of essential oils and other indications by the dermatologist or specialist will help to improve the cause.
Androgenic alopecia is the most common type of alopecia in our society. It usually affects most men, but it can also occur in women.
- Few vitamins and nutrients
A diet low in vitamins, minerals, and nutrients will weaken and cause hair loss to occur prematurely. It is always important to consume fruits and vegetables, foods that provide vitamins, zinc, iron, fatty acids that structure and form the strand of the hair and allow its optimal growth.
- Anemia, the most common female cause of hair loss
If you take a few days when you feel especially tired, you have dizziness and you look pale, it is likely that your blood iron levels (iron-deficiency anemia) are below normal levels.
One of the consequences of the deficit of this mineral is hair loss. And is that, if there is little iron, there is little hemoglobin that can perform the function of transporting oxygen to tissues.
The first thing is to perform laboratory tests (hematology) to check the levels of hemoglobin. From there, your doctor will decide the most appropriate treatment.
- Postpartum hair loss
After pregnancy, specifically 3 or 4 months later, the levels of estrogen, responsible for anchoring the hair to the scalp, decrease.
This is the reason, why during this time your hair falls out.
The important thing is that this type of alopecia usually disappears 6 months later, although in some cases it can be prolonged by stress, lack of iron or the presence of the hormone prolactin during the period of lactation.
- Do not abuse the dryer and the hair iron
Heat weakens hair proteins. Heating and drying constantly can cause brittleness, which can cause hair loss.
Natural drying is best for the hair, so try to dry it naturally more often. The recommendations for the moment you use the dryer, select the low-temperature position and do not get too close to the hair to avoid damaging the scalp.
