Aging Hair Care - To Keep Your Hair Looking Young!
Aging hair does have it's drawbacks! There are so many things that can go wrong as you age! Some hair traits you just can't change, but there are always things you can do to keep your strands looking younger. Regardless of your physical age, the trick is to give plenty of TLC to avoid at least some problems down the road!
Even though genetics might dictate certain traits about your hair, no one ever really knows what they’re going to get until you begin to age. It can either be a walk in the park or it can be a nightmare!
Of course, recently I've developed what I'm calling cRaZy hair! I have a small section in my bangs that wants to stick out and up no matter what I do! Life is always full of surprises, but at least my hair is full and lush! I have little to complain about in reality.
Did you ever wondered why some people have naturally beautiful hair, while others do not? Like other physical characteristics such as body shape and skin tone, the hair you have is the hair you are programmed to have. For some, hair is dense and full. For others, it is thin and sparse. It's kinda luck of the draw when it comes to genetics.
Its no secret that the aging process can be hard on both you and your hair. This is especially true if aging hasn't been kind to your follicles. Some women lose their hair as they age, which bites it - especially if you had good hair as a youngster. Many personal influences like environment, hormones, illness, and life changing circumstances, can alter your hair and shape it's condition.
To get ideas, draw inspiration from aging celebrities like Jane Fonda, Katie Couric, and Jamie Lee Curtis. They're older and their hair still looks great by all accounts!
There are some proactive ways to treat aging hair that may serve you well. Women often ask me what they can do to prevent losing their hair. The answer is different for all women but these are the generalizations to help keep your hair looking healthy as time goes by!
Aging Hair Care
The condition of your hair reflects your overall health. If you eat super foods your hair will be much healthier. Consume a varied diet from all the food groups regularly. If you can't eat right all the time, consider juicing to be an alternative.
There are countless vitamins touted to make your hair grow faster, stronger, and longer. Many skin specialist suggest taking prenatal vitamins, which may prove to be beneficial. Even if you eat well, you still might need extra nutrients. The B complex of vitamins are a good place to start.
Sometimes aging means having overly dry hair. Shampoos often contain potent soaps that can disrupt the production of hair’s natural oils. For prevention, shampoo the hair at your scalp only, not the ends of your hair. Use a conditioner as often as possible on the ends of your hair to help lock in moisture.
A recent study showed that L-Carnitine helps stimulate hair growth. Red meat (particularly lamb) and dairy products are the primary sources of carnitine. It can also be found in fish, poultry, tempeh, wheat, asparagus, avocados, and peanut butter.
Never settle for a little old lady hairstyle. Choose something that make you look hip and young instead! No matter if your hair is curly or straight, a messy bun is quick, cool, and easy!
If you find that you're losing your hair, you may want to consider taking 250 mg of L-carnitine and 10 mg of CoQ10 together. It's proven to help hair grow like crazy. L-carnitine is made up of the amino acids lysine and methionine. CoQ10 turns the energy in the foods you eat into the energy. The presence of the CoQ10 makes your body recognize the L-carnitine as a protein, which jump starts the production of biotin. What more could a older gal want?
Your hair can be many years old, so it reflects all your body has been through in that time. For instance, if you were sick a few months back, then the hair that grew in during that period might be thin and brittle and will remain that way until it's cut off. For aging hair care, it might be time to get rid of damage and focus on taking better care of the hair that is still healthy.
If your hair is damaged, due to illness or other environmental influences, you may need to bolster it's strength. One key nutrient alone can help you. Find it here.
Aging hair doesn't have to be boring. Many older women opt to get a perm in their hair for convenience sake. It's one of those 'no fuss' hairstyles that older women tend to gravitate towards. However, those really tight perms lost popularity many years ago. Don't forget it!
One of the best ways to update your look is to simply to try a new hairdo.
Many women choose to cut their hair short when they grow older. Shorter hair by far, is much easier to take care of than longer styles. That doesn't mean however, that you have to chop it all off!
There's something about aging that makes women want to pull their hair back off their face! Ponytails are meant for any age but especially if you're older and have longer hair. That's a major plus for aging women with aging hair.
Aging hair does have it's challenges! Anyone over fifty will tell you just that! Instead of fighting time, just make it the best you can for you!
