Take Care Styling Aging Hair

November 20, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

It’s inevitable, it will happen to everyone at some point. You will wake up and prepare to style your hair as usual, and there it is, staring back at you in the mirror. A grey hair. Yes. It will happen to almost everyone at some point in their life. For some women, grey hairs occur very early in life and for others, quite late. Regardless of when it happens, a grey hair is a signal to other changes that your hair will start to have and you should pay attention to those changes.

 Like with everything else, your hair will change as you age and just like your skin, and your body, you need to recognize those changes and deal with them. It’s quite normal as we get older to experience drier hair than normal. If you have always had dry hair, this could be more of a problem for you as your hair may be even drier causing it to break and have damage if you’re not careful.

 If you suffer from dry hair, it is important to use an extra nourishing shampoo and conditioner to give your hair the moisture it needs. Take extra care when you are brushing your hair that you don’t pull or tear at the hair and of course, never brush your hair when it is wet. Always use a wide tooth comb.

 It may go against everything you think you know about hair care, but actually using a hair dryer that utilizes negative ions and the power of tourmaline can help your hair. The tourmaline and negative ions infuse your hair, and dry it from the inside – out which means that your hair dries up to 70% faster than it would with a regular hair dryer. Tourmaline also acts on each individual hair to close the cuticle and smooth the hair down flat on the head which means that it will retain its natural moisture and lock the natural oils and moisture into the hair helping it look and feel smooth and healthy.

 Another problem of aging hair is thinning. Many women experience loss of hair, and a general feeling of thinness. Just because your hair is thinning does not meant that you cannot style it. Many women are afraid of hair straighteners and curling irons when they have thin hair because they think that they will damage their hair. That’s not true. However, you do need to pay special attention to what type of tool you choose. Be sure you choose a hair straightener with ceramic or titanium plates so they will not burn your hair, also choose one that has an adjustable heat setting. That way, you can turn the temperature down for your hair as thin hair does not need high heat to straighten it.

 It is important to know that no matter what type of hair you have, and what age your hair is, you can style it just as you normally would. You will have to take into consideration your ever changing hair, and be sure that you use the right products and tools for your hair. However, just because your hair is changing doesn’t mean that you can’t be every bit as stylish as before.

Great Styles Start with Healthy Hair

All too often, there is too much focus placed on styling your hair and having it look good when you head out for the day. And of course that is important, you want to look good when you face the day, but there needs to be more attention placed on how to take care of your hair in between styling.

 If you don’t have healthy looking hair, it’s not going to look good when it’s styled either. No matter how much effort you put into your hair while you’re styling it, it is not going to look good if it’s dry, damaged and frizzy. So put the extra effort into making your hair healthy and keeping it healthy.

 When you have healthy hair, it looks shiny and this isn’t just your imagination. Your hair looks shiny because for healthy hair, the cuticle on the hair shaft is closed which means it lays flat against the head and reflects the light. For damaged and dry hair, the cuticle is open which means the hair is standing up away from the head and is not able to reflect the natural light. Healthy hair also holds on to it’s own natural moisture and oils allowing the hair to look shiny and smooth.

 In order to keep your hair healthy and smooth, you must wash it regularly with a quality shampoo. Do not use anything too harsh or it will strip the natural oils from your hair as well as the build up of product. Ask your stylist for a good recommendation of a shampoo for you. Every hair type has different needs, and you need to be sure that you are using a shampoo that is strong enough to get your hair clean, but not too strong to damage it.

 How often you wash your hair will also depend on you, your hair and your styling habits, If you naturally have oilier hair, or use a great deal of products every day, you may want to wash it every day. However people who have drier hair will strip their natural moisture if they wash their hair too frequently.

 Never brush your hair when it’s wet, it will pull, tear and break your hairs. Comb through gently with a wide toothed comb and then when your hair is damp or dry you can brush it out. Be sure that you use quality hair tools on your hair that will not burn or over dry your hair. Choose hair straighteners that have titanium or ceramic plates, and look for curling irons that have ceramic barrels. These two materials will not burn your hair or pull or tug like cheaper materials. Look for hair dryers and other tools that utilize the power of tourmaline for added efficiency and care of your hair.

 When you take care of your hair between styling and use the right tools when it’s time to create a beautiful style you will have healthier more beautiful hair as a result. And isn’t that what we’re all looking for?

There are many benefits to using an iron that features ceramic titanium plates. First, ceramic is known for emitting negative ions which work to smooth and relax the hair. Ceramic radiates far-infrared heat which traps in moisture as well as seals the hairs cuticle leaving your hair looking healthier and frizz free. A Titanium Flat Iron will provide amazing durability under high heats and offers an even heat distribution. When combined with the ceramic, titanium helps to eliminate frizz, enhance shine, and improve the overall look of you hair. Your hair is left hydrated, soft and healthier. A titanium ceramic hair iron is a great way to straighten your hair with out the burn as it uses a better heat transfer method than non ceramic titanium irons.
