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.

It’s called the “bed head”, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Moss and Gisele are wearing it. The messy but sexy tousled hair, has to be past the shoulders to be effective though. For this look, blow dry upside down, use a hair straightener on only some of it and use it quickly, just sliding down any section here and there. Then use a large barreled curling iron and curl some of the sections you left out hair straightening. Use it fast and not in any kind of order.

The bob: Katie Holmes, Patricia Arquette and Victoria Beckham are all sporting them. A fresh cut is the fastest way to healthier hair! The look is easy to get with a light blow-dry and a hair straightener, you can either straighten the bob flat or flip sides up or in.

Then there’s the French cut bangs. Get your hair styled any way you like and let your stylist go heavy on your bangs. Leave them long enough and you can sweep them back when you feel they are too heavy in hot weather. Use a straightener for the bangs, or the whole head of hair. Or blow dry upside down for a slight scrunchy curl, still hair straightening the bangs.

Till next time, Good Luck,

Niki
