Ageing is inevitable, and its signs start to show up on your hair as much as it does on your skin. While you start using anti-ageing creams and serums in your mid-twenties, you rarely do anything for your precious tresses, this leads to premature greying, dryness and thinning.
If your hair is ageing and you are worried that it will soon make you look older than you are, it's time to take your hair care seriously. Here's how to build a hair care routine for ageing hair and address each concern.
- Oil to prevent thinning
- Mild shampoo to tackle dryness
- Hydrating conditioner for dull hair
- Mask for coarse hair
- Ammonia free hair dye for grey hair
Oil to prevent thinning
As we age, the hair loses its elasticity and becomes fragile; this leads to hair breakage and thinning. When the rate of hair growth is slower than that of hair loss, thinning can occur. It is necessary to apply oil at least twice a week to strengthen your hair. Avocado and coconut oil are highly recommended for hair thinning. You can even try an ayurvedic concoction to prevent thinning. The Lever Ayush Ayurvedic Bhringaraj Hair Oil is a potent ayurvedic formula that nourishes, strengthens and promotes natural hair growth.
Mild shampoo to tackle dryness
Other than pollution, UV rays and poor hair care habits, one more thing that can make dry hair drier is using a harsh shampoo. The primary job of a shampoo is to cleanse, but most of them strip the natural oils from your scalp along with dirt and other impurities, leaving your scalp dry. Switching to a mild shampoo like the Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil and Lavender Aroma Smooth and Serene Shampoo can do wonders for your tresses. It contains no parabens, dyes or silicones and smoothens hair from root to tip while cleansing it gently.
Hydrating conditioner for dull hair
Dull, lacklustre hair is a sign of poor conditioning. If your hair looks lifeless, chances are you’re not using a conditioner or enough of it. It is recommended to use a conditioner from the same range as your shampoo for best results. The Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil and Lavender Aroma Smooth and Serene Conditioner contains the argan oil that adds shine and softness to your tresses.
Mask for coarse hair
Coarse hair is another problem that arrives with ageing. While conditioner will address this issue to some extent, you also need to use a deep conditioning mask once a week for deeper nourishment. Instead of creating a DIY mess, simply apply the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask to your hair. Formulated with keratin and marula oil, this mask restores rough and coarse hair by deeply moisturising it.
Ammonia free hair dye for grey hair
Dyeing your hair to hide grey strands is completely normal; however, most colour dyes contain ammonia which can seriously damage your tresses. Hence, using an ammonia-free hair dye is recommended when building a routine for ageing hair.
