As women we go through so many changes, don’t we?!
And our hair is no exception.
As we age our hair undergoes changes in texture, thickness, and colour.
Gosh, it can be frustrating that’s for sure!
But these changes as we age can also be an opportunity to embrace new styles and care for our hair in different ways.
Let’s explore some of the common changes that occur with our hair as we get older and some tips for maintaining healthy, beautiful hair at any age.
One of the most common changes in women's hair as they age is a change in texture. Hair may become thinner and more brittle, and may lose its natural oils, leading to dryness and frizziness. Additionally, hair may become more prone to breakage and split ends.
To maintain healthy hair texture, it's important to use gentle, moisturising shampoos and conditioners, and to avoid over-styling or using excessive heat. Regular trims can also help to prevent split ends and breakage.
Another common change that occurs as we age is a change in colour. Hair may become grey or white, and may lose its natural vibrancy and shine.
To maintain healthy hair colour, it's important to use colour-safe shampoos and conditioners and to avoid over-processing or colouring. You may choose to embrace your natural hair colour or experiment with new shades or highlights.
As hair texture and colour change, so too may the styles that flatter women's faces and personalities. Some women may choose to embrace shorter, more low-maintenance styles, while others may opt for more dramatic or elegant looks.
We think that you can wear your hair any style that feels comfortable to you! Long or short, you are stunning in our eyes. 😍
What I know to be true is that we are forever changing and growing!
And while it can be confronting and another adjustment that we have to accept, know that you are not alone.
We all go through this.
With the right hair care routine, it's possible to maintain healthy, vibrant, and beautiful hair at any age.
We've got some hot tips for you to keep your hair nourished, refreshed & glowing.
To help with those changes as we age.
So here they are..... 9 tips for women over 50 to help you embrace your hair and keep it looking its best. 👇🌈💕
1. Gentle Cleansing: opt for mild, sulphate-free shampoos that won't strip the hair of its natural oils.
2. Washing hair too frequently can further dry it out, so aim for a balance that suits your hair type and lifestyle.
3. Hydration and Moisture: Ageing hair tends to be drier, so it's crucial to provide it with ample moisture.
Use moisturising conditioners and consider incorporating deep conditioning treatments into your hair care routine.
4.Protect from Heat and Sun Damage: Minimise the use of heat styling tools such as blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners, as they can cause further damage and dryness.
When using heat, apply a heat protectant spray to shield your hair.
Wear a wide-brimmed hat or using a scarf to shield your hair from direct sunlight.
5. Scalp Care: Pay attention to your scalp's health, as it plays a vital role in maintaining healthy hair.
Regularly massage your scalp to promote blood circulation, use gentle exfoliating treatments to remove build-up, and consider incorporating scalp-friendly oils or serums into your routine.
6. Proper Nutrition: A balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins is essential for maintaining healthy hair. Include foods such as leafy greens, fruits, lean proteins, and healthy fats to nourish your hair from within.
7. Embrace Your Natural Texture: Instead of fighting against changes in hair texture, embrace and work with what you have. Embrace hairstyles that add dimension and volume, such as layers or soft curls.
8. Regular Trimming: Regular trims help remove split ends and prevent breakage, making your hair look healthier and more vibrant. Aim for every 6-8 weeks for a trim.
9 Stress Management: Stress can contribute to hair loss and overall hair health. Practice stress management techniques such as meditation, exercise, or hobbies to promote overall well-being, which reflects positively on your hair.
