Top 10 Tips to "Age-Proof" Your Hair

It’s impossible to defy time.  As it passes, we become more vulnerable to brittle nails, less supple skin, hair thinning and hair loss.  While we may not be able to reverse the clock, we can take control of our behaviors and adapt a lifestyle that may delay the aging progress.  The following tips require minimal time, effort and resources but, when followed consistently, can produce amazing results!

Follow a Healthy Diet

The condition is your hair can be an outward sign of internal health.  The cells that compose each strand of hair require key nutrients to remain strong and healthy.  A balanced diet, rich in vitamins and minerals will supply hair with all that it needs to remain shiny and lustrous.  Make sure you are consuming enough protein, iron, and omega-3s.

Avoid Chemical Treatments

While you may be happy with your new highlights, or the perm that seems to add volume to your hair, the side effects of chemical treatments will catch up, leaving it burned, dry brittle and rough.

Avoid Mega-Hold Hair Products

These products tend to contain a lot of alcohol, which evaporates very quickly when applied to your hair.  No problem right? Wrong.  As it evaporates, the alcohol also takes a bit of your hair’s natural moisture with it, resulting in dry, dull locks.

Brush Hair Before Washing It

Wet hair is very fragile and should be treated as such.  By brushing your hair before showering, you will reduce the likelihood of pulls and tugs that can lead to damaged and broken strands.

Blot Hair With a Towel

As you now know wet hair is extremely susceptible to damage.  Wringing it out with a towel will cause more frizz and breakage.  Instead, use a towel to absorb excess water and avoid unnecessary damage. 

Moisturize Your Hair

Replenish oils and moisturize your hair to prevent dryness, damage and breakage. 

Avoid Hot Tools

When you use heat styling tools, your hair becomes stripped of its natural oils and proteins because their hydrogen bonds are broken down.  This doesn’t mean you have to eliminate them altogether, but be mindful of how often you use them.

Rinse Hair With Cool Water

Warm water opens the hair’s cuticle to allow shampoo and conditioner to do work efficiently.  Cold water helps close the cuticle, sealing in moisture from the conditioner and increasing shine while preventing frizz.

Trim Hair Regularly

Getting a regular trim every 6 to 8 weeks keeps your hair health and growing.

Protect Your Hair From the Sun

Over time, with prolonged exposure to the sun, UVA and UVB rays can damage the hair’s cuticle.  This can lead to discoloration, dryness, thinning hair, broken ends and frizz.  Protect your hair by wearing a hat or using color-protective hair products.
