Keeping Hair Fresh Makes Your Look Fresh

May 4, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

When I was younger, I could go two or three months between each haircut. It always seemed easier when I was a young girl because my hair hadn’t been exposed to heat or damaging chemicals yet. Getting a haircut in April meant my next appointment would be in June or July. However, as I grew up, I started getting into trends from my favorite TV shows and wanted to constantly look like my favorite celebrities. When I was little, fresh haircuts made me look older because of the styles I was admired by. Now that I’m older I realize haircuts should make me look younger. As I get older I don’t want to look older, I want to keep my youthful, fun look that keeps me in touch with my youthful personality.

Older women today sometimes have trouble with this concept of staying younger. There are a few common mistakes that they make, thinking these things will make them look older. For example, they tan their skin, grow their hair out, get their nails done and more just to make themselves look younger. Truth is, those things only make them look older. When they tan their skin becomes wrinkly and tight when what they want is to look dark and flawless. Maybe this is what they see but the rest of the world notices an orange shriveled up body. Growing hair out doesn’t look great on older women because of the texture of their hair. As we age, our hair gets drier and begins to loose its natural oils and the longer it gets, the more noticeable those dried ends become. Getting nails done aren’t that bad of an asset to the aging process. It just looks bad when you combine it with the above trends that don’t look good.

Going back to growing out hair, we want to avoid looking old with our hair especially. To do this, we should think of new ways to keep a fresh look and a perfect example would be a haircut! Getting regular haircuts is an essential if you want to look young and fresh. Doing this can also bring out highlights in your other features too. For example, when you get bring out those  hair shears and chop off all dead ends in your hair, you can add a little needed volume. Create some layers too if you want a little oomph in the top of your head. Body in the hair definitely cuts a few years off your look and when you build up the hair, you also build up your cheekbones. Shorter cuts are very appropriate for women over fifty and when you use your hair scissors for certain tasks it helps a lot. Another idea is to cut a section from your bangs to swoop to the side. This will cover some of the aging spots on the forehead but it will also draw attention to your eyes when the hair falls right next the eye.

To play up your look, think about ways to make yourself younger. Next time you want a new style, don’t think about dying your roots or going tanning to make yourself look younger. Instead try getting it all cut off and making it more of a polished look. Making yourself look younger definitely isn’t a hard thing to do when you think about it.

Hair That Constantly Grows

When we have long hair, sometimes we think we want to change it up and get a new hairstyle. That’s when we go to our stylist and tell her to chop all our hair off to about chin-length. At first we think that shorter styles are more fun and easy to take care of instead of long hair. Then after a while we begin to get sick of styling it the same way day after day and not being able to put it in a ponytail or style it any other way than just straighten it. Now is the time when we begin to grow our hair out.

For some, the process of growing out your hair can be easy because of the growth rate. For others, it may be a little more difficult; their hair might have a little growth problem. Therefore, their hair can’t grow very fast. That is why they find it more difficult to style their hair after so long, because they can’t grow it out and it tends to look sloppy. They may need a little help to spurt their hair growth and get it to look long and luscious like it used to.

One of the best ways to get your hair to grow longer is to get it trimmed regularly. You may have heard this before and it may seem hard to believe, but hair truly does grow longer when it has a little help from your stylist and her hair shears. Getting trims regularly can help spurt a little growth because it clears out all split ends that begin to develop in your hair after so long. With the help of shears, you can eliminate these split ends that act as plugs to your growth and the hair can breathe enough to grow. Just remember to do this regularly so that you can grow it faster and longer.

Another big part that helps the hair grow fabulously is wearing your hair in simple styles. For example, if you straighten or curl your hair everyday, you are creating more split ends because of the application of heat. Instead, try showering in the morning before school and throwing your hair up into a flirty ponytail. It will keep your hair out of your face and can still look cute and fresh each day. Be careful not to tie a ponytail too tight; it will only pull on the ends and can create split ends. Try putting a little gel in the hair to get some bouncy curls.

The normal routine for some girls before they go to bed is to brush their hair over and over until it looks and feels like silk. Smooth hair is what every girl wants, right? The only problem with this is that it creates frizz and and stops it from doing its thing to grow. The less you brush your hair, the more it can flow and extend its length.

Basically the main step in getting your hair to flourish and grow beautifully is to prevent split ends. Split ends and sloppy hair follicles are the main things that keep hair from growing out. When you perform these few steps and follow them each day, you will notice a difference in the growth rate of your hair. Also remember to live a good lifestyle by drinking lots of water and by eating the right foods.
