New season, new hairstyle!
Yes, beauties I now have bangs and have changed my hair color!
The cooler fall weather brings dry, cold air, which can make your locks frizzy, brittle, and unmanageable. Plus, hair just like our skin can become more damaged; hence we need to be more mindful of how we care for our hair. So, if you want to find out more on “Hair Care For Women Over Forty” during the fall season continue reading!
Hair Tips For Women Over Forty
Hair Styles For Women Over Forty
Get A Trim
While I love long hair, long hair over 40 can age you! But don’t worry age appropriate hairstyles do not mean they lack in style, fun, or have to be really short (sorry but I still love my clip in hair). Some of my favorites…
- Short Side Sweep
- Blunt Razor Cut With Bangs
- Center Part Balayage Bob
- Chin Length Razor Bob
- Long Razor Cut With Highlights
- Feathered Layers That Frame The Face
Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day
Washing your hair strips it of its natural oils and as we age our hair and scalp often get drier. So the longer you can go without washing your hair do it.
Massaging The Scalp
To help protect your hair from the damaging effects of the environment, I like to massage my head with a hair Massaging brush, not only does it feel great but it also contributes to improving the resilience over time.
Air Dry Your Hair
When it comes to drying the hair, air drying is best, as blow drying your hair will add extra heat damage, especially if it is color treated.
Give Your Hair An Extra Dose Of Moisture
You want to look for products that will increase moisture, shine, or elasticity. I love me some Miroccan Oil
Add A Heat Protectant
While my hair is color treated most of it is gray and gray hair can be unruly, so I can never go without my flat iron. However, heat-activated tools can cause all sorts of damage, especially during the colder months, so sticking with a great heat protectant is a must.
Shampoo For Aging Hair
Use a quality cleanser that washes away normal wear and tear from the environment like pollution and dust, but does not strip your hair of its natural oils and lipids. Also, if you have blond hair, tone the color with a shampoo for brassy hair.
Feed Your Hair
What we eat is also essential to healthy hair growth. Since our hair is made up of certain types of protein and skin cells, implementing a healthy diet would make sense for a positive effect on our hair.
Eating a diet of low-fat proteins, fruits, and vegetables, can help to stimulate the growth of healthy hair from our follicles.
You also need to make sure you are drinking plenty of water! This is one thing I am not good at, but considering our hair is an extension of our skin, hydrating from the inside out only makes sense! Drinking plenty of water will help hydrate and give your hair the internal moisture it needs to look and feel healthy. A great tip is to add 100% organic lemon juice to your water as it helps from the inside out.
