One of the most obvious and embarrassing aesthetics that come with the aging process is the thinning, loss, and greying of hair. The rich color, thick volume, and soft texture slowly turns brittle, dry, grey, as it changes like the autumn leaves. Many people, men and women alike, will turn to coloring systems, thickening formulas, or spend excessive amounts on styling products, shampoos, and conditioners in an attempt to bring back the rich life that once emanated from their hair in their days of youth. Unfortunately, many of these techniques can make the situation far worse, and even accelerate your hair’s aging process.
So, what do you do when you comb handfuls of strands out of your scalp everyday? How do you bring back the luminosity and vibrancy you once boasted? And what causes this breakdown of your carefully kept coif? While greying and thinning are a part of the general aging process, you may be surprised at how your own products and techniques play a key role in your loss of hair life. The good news is that, should your product selection be the main contributing factor in your hair’s aging, then you can potentially reverse and heal the damage. We put together a list of hair-dos and hair-don’ts to help you navigate which steps to take next in retaining your youthful coif the natural, nontoxic way.
