Is your hair starting to look old and worn out? It happens to everyone, especially those who don’t know how to care for their locks. The natural elements and chemicals used on a daily basis lead to dried, tangled, and dull looking hair. Here are some of the secrets to making your hair look healthier, so you look younger.
Increase Your Hair’s Diameter with Caffeine
Your hair will start to thin as you get older, hence why people go bald. While you can’t prevent this, you can help to make it look like it is slowing down. Caffeine products will help to make the strands of the hair look thicker by increase the diameter, rather than binding strands together. They are available over the counter and online to help you find something within your budget.
Switch Your Shampoo and Conditioner
As you get older, your hair type can change. The oil production is much slower when you age, so your once oily hair can start to look dry and damaged. Instead of constantly buying the same type of shampoo and conditioner, buy it for the type of hair you currently have. You will probably still be able to stick to the same manufacturer, but may even find a change in this is beneficial to keep your hair looking healthier and shinier.
Add Some Colour to Your Hair
The pigment of your hair will change when you get older, meaning greys start to come through. It can make your hair look ashier and old, and even unhealthy. Focus on colouring your hair back to its natural colour. Don’t go for something too extreme. Just think about the natural shades that you had or change it by a couple of shades only.
Ammonia-Free Hair Colouring Kits Only
Hair dyes contain all types of chemicals that dry the hair and make it look and feel like straw. When you do come to colour your hair, only choose the kits that state they are ammonia-free. Ammonia is the most dangerous chemicals of all. There are some natural and organic colouring kits available, but these are only temporary in most cases.
Look for Youth Renewal Kits
There are kits that are designed to make your hair look younger and healthier. These youth renewal kits are available online and in-stores. If you’re worried about wasting your money, buy a smaller version first to give it a trial. They help to add the oils back in and improve the production of natural ones so you hair glistens as it used to.
Massage Your Scalp with Oils
Oils are essential to keep the hair looking younger. It all starts from the scalp, so care for it deeply. Get some oils designed for this part of the body and massage your scalp on a weekly basis (at least). If you’re really worried about too many oils or your hair looking greasy, you could do it on a night and then wash it out first thing in the morning.
