Age-Defying Hair



A lustrous, clean, and lively hair is a subject of envy for many. It is a manifestation of an optimum health and an evidence of youthful glow. While it is a frustration for some, you can transform that dull, grimy, and limp hair of yours to an enviably age-defying one too! How?

Shampoo only he scalp

If you compare skin care to hair care, shampoo is the soap that gets rid of oils, dirt, dandruff, pollutants and other impure particles that gradually assembles in hair. Just like your soap, your shampoo should also be used only unto select areas to prevent it from stripping out so much as to make hair unmanageable.

So when shampooing, remember that your hair is dirtiest and oiliest at the scalp. Shampoo just your scalp and the sudsy overflow would be sufficient to cleanse the rest of you hair without saying goodbye to your hairís natural shine. Remember, too much shampoo eliminates too much oil that actually protects the protein structure of hair from damage, and youíre just reversing the end of your purpose. Tsk tsk

Know what to use

Many commercial shampoos, conditioners, and other hair products can damage your hair in the long run making hair look dull and weary. Choosing the right product does not only make the hair look health and beautiful but also saves hair from destruction. For very dry hair, use mild shampoo and good quality conditioner that contain humectants which holds moisture in the hair.

For greasy hair, a good nourishing shampoo should be used, while avoiding too much brushing as this excites oil glands which are already over-active. People with sensitive scalp should use organic or botanical shampoos because they have less harsh chemicals, thus, gentler to your hair. For brittle hair, a conditioner with reconstructor should be used- preferable those that contain hydrolyzed protein that penetrates the hair and strengthens its structure.

For people usually exposed to sun or blow-dryers and hair curlers, a shampoo and conditioner with thermal protectors should be used. These shield the hair against excessive heat. Baby shampoos should only be used by babies, of course, as its composition is not enough for the hair of an adult. Thereís no dispute as to what people with dandruff should use.

Condition only the tips

Again if you compare skin care to hair care, a conditioner is the moisturizer that helps improve the texture and appearance of the hair. Like shampoo, soap, and moisturizers, a conditioner should only be applied unto select areas. This time, put conditioner only at the ends. This prevents the hair to sit limp at the roots which actually makes your hair look older.

Proper blow-drying

The nozzle of a blow-dryer should be pointed downward to help close the cuticle, improving the sheen of our hair. For the final three minutes of blow-drying, experts suggested to switch the equipment to a cool setting to fight dry and frizz hair, and flyaways.

Have a shorter hair

According to beauty experts, long hair can age you and make you look tired and haggard, and they say that shorter hair can give you just the boost you need to look younger. So, be brave to give yourself a better cut. You donít wanna look old with a long hair. Furthermore, tell your hairdresser to add layers as this gives hair fullness and bounce, that, in turn, makes hair look softer and shinier.

Make it shine

For a shinier hair, some people use a little amount of ale, yes, real ale to the rinsing water.

Like a fine lace

As a popular hairdresser said before, the hair is like a fine lace. It is a precious item people wear and display anywhere, anytime. In the end, whether your aim is to look younger or just plainly to look more beautiful, you will be held responsible in taking care of a precious lace.
