Do you want to make your unruly hair more manageable? Try these coarse hair treatment options for soft and silky hair.
While coarse hair comes with a lot of volume, it tends to be rough, unruly, and hard to manage. It is also prone to knots, split ends, and breakage. Because coarse hair strands are thick in width and quick to lose moisture, they require a lot of tender love and care, mostly in the form of adequate hydration to minimise dryness and split ends. Equipped with the right knowledge, you can easily transform your coarse hair into a stunning mane that feels soft, healthy, and full of vitality.
What is coarse hair?
The first step on your journey to transform coarse hair is to understand your hair type. Coarse hair can be defined as strands with wider diameters than average. While it is one of the strongest hair types, it can be hard to manage. But what causes coarse hair? Coarse hair is often associated to your genetics, but you can also develop it due to factors like:
- Iron deficiency
- Excessive heat styling
- Calcium deficiency
- Hormone imbalance
- Thyroid conditions
How to take care of coarse hair?
Are you wondering what you can do about the ever-present frizz? Here’s how you can effectively manage your coarse hair and restore shine and vitality:
- Choose the right shampoo
Coarse hair is more likely to be frizz-prone due to its rough texture and the presence of cuticle layers that don’t lie flat. So, choosing a gentle and nourishing shampoo is paramount. I recommend picking a hydrating shampoo free of drying elements such as parabens and sulphates. It can minimise the risk of breakage by preventing frizz and maintaining the integrity of the hair shaft. Because coarse hair is drier, you don’t need to shampoo every day. Washing your hair every 2-3 days, or even less frequently, can help retain natural oils and prevent over-drying.
- Don’t forget the conditioner
If you have coarse hair, a nourishing conditioner is going to be your best friend. Conditioning solutions aid in the closure of the outer section of the hair shaft, known as the cuticle, which helps retain moisture within the hair shaft. Additionally, using oils can help lock in moisture and replenish the scalp’s limited oil supply. I recommend investing in a high-quality deep conditioner or hair mask designed for coarse hair. Use it once or twice a week to provide intense moisture and repair. Apply a leave-in conditioner to your hair after washing your hair to seal in moisture and tame frizz.
- Limit heat styling
If you want soft and lustrous locks, avoid using heat-styling products such as flat irons and curling irons. Excessive heat can further dry out and damage coarse hair. One research says that if you blow dry your hair, keeping the blow dryer around 6 inches away from your hair may help avoid damage. And, if you use heat styling equipment, remember to use a heat protectant before styling to minimise damage. Use lower heat settings and avoid excessive heat exposure.
