Ah, aging. It’s something we can’t control, no matter how much we wish we can. I mean, look at Madonna – her face might look young, but one look at her hands and you can see her true age.
That is why they say aging is the great equalizer!
In addition to aging’s effects on our face and body, it also affects our hair. And we don’t just mean graying – we mean thinning.
You know how we buy anti-aging wrinkle creams and eye creams and all that? Well, we’ve got to take the same great care of our hair! Who knew?
Aging has undeniable effects on our bodies, skin, faces, and even our hair. I’m not talking about hair graying, I’m talking about thinning. But just as we are taught to prolong our skin’s signs of aging with creams and products, we should also do the same for our hair. How do we do this?
- Keep your hair moisturized – Aging causes our bodies to produce less keratin proteins, which our bodies need to for thick, shiny, healthy hair. Also, styling products, heat tools and environment can also result in keratin depletion. Using products that contain proteins replenish the hair and add moisture. This is crucial for those who color your hair or use blow dryers, curling irons and flat irons. One of the best hair care product is Keranique hair care.
- Eat healthy! The best way to keep your hair healthy is by keeping your body healthy. You’ll want to add more vegetables, fruits and whole grains to your diet and cut out highly processed foods. What you lack in your diet, make up for by taking vitamins and supplements. Biotin, horsetail, iron, saw palmetto, silica and zinc are ideal for preventing age-related hair loss and thinning.
