Achieving a good hair day, every single day is a distant dream for all of us. For our hair to behave, it takes a lot of effort and we all know that the struggle is real! But it’s not always your hair that’s wrong. At times, you could be making hair mistakes, that can make you look older.

You might not realise it, but you could be adding age to your look with these hair mistakes...

We understand that finding the right haircut to suit your face shape can be a daunting task. Length does not matter as long as you have a dynamic, flattering style. If you’ve always had long hair, then it’s time to experiment with a short haircut. Sporting the same old look for years, can also make you look older.

Having one solid colour throughout your hair is certainly going to make you look older. To avoid this, it’s ideal to have complementary highlights throughout the ends of your hair. This will not only add movement to your hair but also, ensure that the colour grows out without any severe re-growth lines.

Did you know? The way you part your hair can make you look older. Straight down the middle doesn’t suit everyone, and a severe side part may not make you feel too comfortable. In such cases, it’s best to go for a soft, irregular part that could look flattering. Also, bangs help you look younger. If you have the hair texture to go for bangs, then you must opt for it.

Dry and damaged hair makes you look older. Because oil glands do not produce as much sebum as we age, hair tends to become drier over time. It is, therefore, essential to reduce the use of heat styling tools as they are the biggest contributor to dry and damaged locks.

Not trimming enough

It’s ideal to trim your hair between every 6 to 12 weeks. This keeps your hair healthy and free of dry or split ends. Split ends play a major role in making you look older. Therefore, no matter what the length, trimming your hair is must.
