Managing and taming coarse hair is not only challenging, but can also be quite frustrating and daunting. Coarse hair is prone to dryness and breakage and can make life really irksome for a person. The texture of the hair; be it silky soft or coarse depends on the size and shape of the hair follicle. Genetics determines the size and shape of the hair follicle and is passed down through the genes. Those of us struggling with coarse hair have scores of questions regarding dry, coarse hair treatment, such as how to tame it, how to get it to grow, what kind of products would suit the hair, etc. Let's have a look at some of these queries!

How to Treat Coarse Hair

While shampooing coarse hair, one should massage the shampoo well into the hair roots and allow the lather to find its course to the ends. One should also apply conditioner, which helps smoothen the hair fibers and prevent them from drying and breaking. The conditioner should be applied midway and all the way to the hair tips. Shampooing sucks out all the natural oils and moisture content from the hair, causing it to become even more dry and frizzy. Moisturizers should be applied to the hair to replenish the lost natural oils. With coarse hair, one simple rule to be followed is regular moisturizing and conditioning of the hair. Moreover, avoid using a hair brush, instead use a comb to stimulate the release of natural oils on the scalp. Also avoid blow drying coarse hair, as it causes the hair texture to become even more rough.

How to Increase Hair Length

For coarse hair to grow, one has to trim one's hair regularly, at least once a month. Trimming will get rid of the split ends and over processed ends, which cause the hair to become frizzy. It also does away with the dead ends, thereby, giving the hair a healthier look and will also enhance hair growth. Moreover, each time you go out, it's important to protect your hair from sunlight and wind. Heat from the sun and blowing wind cause the hair to dry further, split and break. Thus, it is important to cover one's head with a scarf or cloth while one is outdoors.

How to Choose Relevant Products

Television bombards our minds with so many advertisements of hair care products, that it leaves our mind cluttered. We simply seem to get even more confused! So which kind of products should we get for dry, frizzy or coarse hair? While choosing hair care products for coarse hair, check for coarse hair treatment products high in natural moisturizers, which will condition one's hair and moisturize it. These shampoos smoothen the hair fibers and give it a sheen. Thick cream moisturizers with adequate amounts of vitamins are also good for coarse hair. Avoid use of products with chemicals or alcohol and keep away from curling irons and straightening irons, as they damage the hair texture even more. Moreover, avoid gels and hair sprays as they dry the hair.

A proper hair care routine comprising oiling, shampooing, moisturizing, conditioning, etc. should be carried out on a regular basis. Having said this one should not forget the importance of food and water intake. Any kind of hair treatment needs to be complemented with proper diet and water. Although one cannot achieve a silky, bouncy hairdo, one can definitely get one's frizzy hair to look nicer!
