Our hair ages, just like all our organs. What are the signs of ageing hair? Hair thinning is the most common sign, as our hair thins as we get older. Greying is also a clear sign of ageing, but you can also think of it when your hair becomes dull, dull and brittle. Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can do a lot to keep your hair healthy with the right care, but there are some things you may have to give up that can make it even worse. Let’s see what they are.
We need to moisturise our hair, but it makes a difference which moisturiser we use. If at all possible, avoid moisturisers containing mineral oils and prefer products rich in natural oils. Which oils are good for hair health? Olive oil, coconut oil and jojoba oil are the most recommended.
Heat damage, such as from blow dryers or hair straighteners, is not good for the hair. They draw moisture out of the hair strands, leaving it dry and brittle. Use heat-protecting products if you must dry or iron your hair.
The condition of your hair can also be affected by the weather, for example strong sunlight, but chlorine or salt water can also have a negative effect. Use a swimming cap in the water and a straw hat or a scarf to protect your hair from strong sun.
Use hair masks at regular intervals. You can make your own, and homemade hair masks are cheap and nourishing. Here is one such recipe. In a small bowl, mix together a tablespoon of honey, two tablespoons of coconut oil and an essential oil of your choice, which could be lavender, chamomile or even rosemary. Mix the contents of the bowl and apply the mixture to the ends of the hair. Leave it on your hair for at least 30 minutes, then wash your hair as usual.
If you have long hair, be sure to wrap it up in a bun to sleep in, as this reduces the chance of tangles. You can also apply a great hair wrap at night. All you have to do is spread a few drops of olive oil on your hair and wrap your head with a towel. Just wash it off in the morning and your hair will not only be shiny, but healthy too.
