What’s Wrong With Routines

April 23, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

More and more women every day are noticing differences in their hair. Whether it be the texture, the color or the amount they have, it isn’t always pleasant. For older women, it can be frustrating to see their once young and luscious hair turn to dead ends with a bad gray color. Of course, there are solutions for this problem but not all women are fans of dying their hair. Sometimes hair dye makes the texture of hair not so fun to mess with. It’s hard to restore already dead/split ends. Although there are these women who are cautious about the future of their hair, there are also women out there who would do anything to look younger- that includes changing their daily routine.

So many people find it hard to believe, but there are women in the world who are seventy years old and refuse to go out without straightening or back combing their hair. What they don’t realize is how fragile their hair is and how dangerous all of this stuff can be. Once women hit a certain period in life, they stop producing certain hormones and their bodies begin to change. One of those type of hormones includes those that help create the kind of protein to keep hair strong. This means that their hair will begin to break down slowly each day. This already is bad news bears but when they continue to use hair straighteners or hair dye, they are only making it worse.

A typical day of a woman at the age of seventy should include something simple like waking up, drinking a cup of coffee, and bathing before a nice luncheon with other elderly women. However, it becomes damaging and dangerous when women decide to wake up and shower, blow dry, straighten, sit in the sun and then touch up their roots at night before bed. This is a dangerous process for any age girl but especially for those who have hair that is done growing any body or silky texture. Bad hair starts with the daily procedure you put the ends through.

If you decide at an older age that you want to keep it healthy and beautiful for life, its a good decision to leave it be and let it do its thing. Trying to hard actually ends up making hair look duller and uglier depending on all you do with it. Not to say that straightening hair every other week for a special event is a bad thing. It becomes a problem after repeatedly doing so each and every day. With lots of heat and light exposure, the cuticle of the hair breaks down twice as fast for older women. If using any type of heat source, use it in increments. This means you shouldn’t use both a straightener and a blow drier in the same day. Keep a good variety and don’t overuse any of the sources.

Avoiding Summer Hair Damage

There are so many things that women expose their hair to some in the name of beauty and some just because we do not truly understand the damage which is occurring to our hair. To reduce the damage to your hair consider wearing a hat to reduce the amount of sun it is exposed to. Also consider adding a little baby oil to your hair before entering the pool to reduce the damage from chlorine. Make sure you are using the right temperature settings on your hair straightening irons and curing irons so that your hair is not exposed to any unnecessary temperatures.

Nothing can make your hair frizz out quite like the humidity of the summer months. Your hair should be easy to maintain and style in the summer so you can spend less time in front of the mirror and more time enjoying your friends and the sun. A great way to avoid some of that summer inspired frizz is by using ionic hair dryers to dry your hair after the shower. These special dryers use ionic technology to dry your hair quickly and effectively all while helping it retain its own natural moisture, which will help keep it not only healthier but tamer as well.

figure 5: Just letting your hair down be seems to be the sexiest thing to do this year, I am seeming to agree!

Everything is about being casual this year, too much make-up is considered “last year” too much “hair-do” is simply too much work! Try going a little more casual this summer, there is so much more beauty when you just give what you’ve got! Try wearing a little bronzer instead of just baking your skin in the sun, you don’t want to age yourself faster than we already do!

Till next time, Good Luck.
