A Guide to Taming Coarse Hair Naturally

Hands up if you have coarse hair.

Now hands up if it would be easier to wrestle a territorial grizzly bear than to tame your hair in the morning.

If your hands are still up, don’t worry – you’re not alone.

To understand what makes coarse hair so hard to control, we must first look at the underlying roots of the problem (pun most definitely intended).

Of course, genes play a huge part in your hair type, however, there are several other variables which can exacerbate the situation. So, here are some things to consider if you’re struggling with coarse hair:

  • Overexposure to the sun can make coarse hair even harder to manage.
  • With the sun often comes swimming – chlorinated water can make your hair a lot more tangled.
  • Chemical or heat treatments can make your hair coarser than normal.
  • Over-washing can result in extra coarse hair.

Obviously, it’s all very well advising you to stay out of the sun, not to go in the pool and not to treat your hair, but in the real world, that’s just not feasible. Holidays happen (albeit never often enough), so there will inevitably be times when your hair becomes more than a handful.
