The Worst Hair Problems Ever
Hair problems are inevitable, but that doesn’t mean that you’d have to suffer in silence if you have them. Here are some of the most common, most horrible hair issues that many of us have experienced at least once. Get to know the worst hair problems ever!
1. Extreme dryness
If you ask most people if they’ve ever experienced dry hair before, the most probable answer would be yes.
The problem may arise from the roots or even from the shafts, though most of the time, it starts at the roots and is evident when you look at the hair as a whole. When hair is very dry, it tends to look big and ‘shaggy’. And it’s not just all about the looks either. Dry hair is also more prone to breakage, which can lead to further damages.
Dryness is caused by the lack of moisture in your hair. Our hair is very sensitive to external factors, which makes it extremely prone to dryness. More often than not, dryness is caused by external factors rather than internal. You may want to look at the products you’re using, the temperature conditions in your area, or your immediate environment if you’re suffering from dry hair.

2. Severe dandruff
Feeling itchy regardless of the time of day? Keep getting pestered by white flakes all over your shoulders and back, especially during winter and autumn? Unfortunately, you may have a severe case of dandruff.
There are many different reasons why people get dandruff. For one, men are more prone to it than women, although it’s not uncommon for women to get dandruff too. Sometimes, it’s caused by not shampooing enough. Maybe you’ve got yeast on your scalp. Or maybe your scalp has some other underlying issues that you need to solve. Hopefully, you don’t have what is called seborrheic dermatitis, the worst case of dandruff ever and a serious hair problem.
Here’s a video of someone on YouTube removing severe dandruff from their scalp. It’s completely satisfying yet extremely gross at the same time. We’re warning you–it’s not for the faint of heart.

3. Greasy strands
Nobody likes greasy hair, perhaps even more so than dry hair. Unlike dry hair that is simply hard to manage, greasy hair can give you an unclean and even unhygienic appearance, which can be a cause of embarrassment for many people.
Greasy hair is usually caused by sebaceous glands that are way too active. These glands tend to produce too much sebum which can build up on your scalp and cause greasy hair. While a little oil is good for your hair’s overall health, too much of it is never healthy.
In the most extreme cases, a greasy scalp can actually lead to dandruff and eventually hair loss. How does this happen? Simply put, severe dandruff can block your hair follicles, which disrupts your hair’s natural growth cycle. This can result in eventual hair loss since the follicles will have problems producing hair.
Are you experiencing the worst split ends ever? Unfortunately, most people don’t realize the extent of their split-end damage until it finally reaches its worst stage. Yet, in many cases, they’re completely preventable.
The problem with this is that people tend to overlook the condition of their own hair. Maybe they’re busy or maybe they just can’t deal with their hair right now. Whatever it is, skipping the hairdresser only makes things worse, making their hair scraggly and frizzy to the point of no return.
Severe cases of split-ends cause breakage up to the middle part of the hair, which can lead to worse damages. Better deal with it now than deal with a lot of stress later down the road.

5. Horrible tangles
Who said only animals can get furballs? Even humans can get hairballs too, and just as you can imagine, they’re not pretty at all. If you’ve never experienced this before, then lucky you.
Tangled hair can be extremely hard to deal with, and people who regularly get them know this. Most of the time, those with dry or curly hair tend to get horrible tangles more than those who have thin and straight hair.
If you’re dealing with tangles, try to look at the cause of your tangles first, such as hair that’s really dry. If this is the case, add some moisturizer in your regimen first and brush your hair in the shower, where your hair is easier to detangle.
