There are sure signs of maturing hair that many post 50 women are sad to report that they are experiencing. As we started to investigate and read many articles and reports, here are the 4 most common problems and solutions to aging hair.
Some women embrace it and look fabulous doing so. Others choose to colour and look great and youthful. Colours that best remedy aging hair would be gentler and ammonia free colors like our L’oreal Professional Inoa colour. Inoa is best known for its conditioning and gentle approach to hair colour. We also carry the O&M colour that is more of an organic or green line. Which is best used for clients who have allergies or scalp sensitivities.
It’s perfectly normal to lose up to 150 hairs a day no matter your age. For women; hormonal changes can affect hair growth patterns and so hair loss and thinning happen simultaneously. Products that can help are Loreal Professionals Serioxyl and the Kerastase Specifique Aminexil line. For styling; use products like Kerastase Materialist and Densifiques Densimorphose mousse. While Pureology Nano Works Gold is the perfect shampoo and conditioner.
The best remedy for this is to put oil or moisture back in your hair. Argan oil is incredibly hydrating and can be found in our Moroccan Oil line of products. Do not over wash, twice a week is ample. Avoid high heat and aggressive hair styling techniques that strip the hair of natural oil.
As you age, your hair also loses some of its elasticity causing it to become brittle. Hair that is repeatedly treated with chemicals, bleaches, hair straighteners, and permanent dyes can become stiff, dry and prone to breakage. Give your strands some TLC by making sure you use protein-rich hair treatments such as the Kerastase Resistance line. Another way to treat brittleness is to take a hair vitamin with biotin and silica to help strengthen your hair. Take at least 3,000 mg/day. The silica will help strengthen collagen while biotin influences nutrients for cell growth.
