Advice for your hair from a professional hairstylist.

 

 Differences with your hair when you are older

 

With age, your hair would also undergo changes so it will be different from when you were younger. If you do not do anything to the ageing hair, the hair would deteriorate even more. Let's try to keep the hair youthful even with age! 

 

 Unavoidable ageing of hair

 

 Similarly with the skin, the hair also ages and it is unavoidable. Of course, it would be great if the hair can be kept youthful as long as possible. It would be slightly difficult to manage ageing hair, but it is a way to start prevention of further ageing.

 

 

Symptoms of aged hair

 

*increased amount of white hair

*thinning of hair at the top/crown of your head

* weakening of roots and hair 

*lack of volume

* reduced glossiness

* lack of buoyancy and fluffiness

*sudden waves when your hair was originally straight when you were younger

*tendency of dryness and spreaded out hair

 

 As seen above, it is shown that the hair would have been different from how it should be when it was more youthful.

 

 

Reasons for ageing hair

 

However, with age, the amount of collagen and protein levels will start to drop. Exposure to ultra-violet rays and air-conditioner temperatures as well as perming and colouring constantly would result in a lower repairing ability by the hair.

 

Furthermore, if the immune system also weakens, there will be a lack of nutrients to the roots of the hair and the pores would weaken. With this reason on top of the other factors, the hair condition would change more and more. As such, one would start to feel that the hair texture or nature is very different. Which is why a method to prevent further ageing is important.

 

When you were young, your hair would have alot of collagen and protein in it so it repairs easily but when the hair ages, it will not be as easily repaired as before due to the reduced amounts of collagen and protein. With the recurring lowered amounts of nutrients and the exposure to hair-damaging factors, the condition of the hair will worsen. Therefore, it would be good if you can protect your hair as early as possible. 

 

 

The idea about ageing hair care

 

Ageing care refers to the care given to the hair with increased age. 

We will like to introduce a 5-step ageing care advice to you.

 

 Step 1: Procide nutrients and moisture for your hair

 

The reason why your hair becomes dry and a lack of glossiness is because there is a lack of water and nutrients in the hair.

At times like these, it would be good to apply treatments with collagen and keratin in the formula for your hair. As for the scalp, scalp lotions which will help moisten your scalp is also recommended. 

 

 

Step 2: Ingredients that are advantageous to your scalp

 

If you were to use the same type of shampoo and conditioner as you did when you were young, you would be providing more damage for your hair than usual. As such, it would be good to change to a set with a gentler cleansing power.

 

 

 Step 3: Improve the blood circulation

 

When we think about the lack of hair and grey hair, it is because of weakened blood circulation. As such, it would be good to use warm water on your scalp and hair before applying shampoo and/or conditioner. By doing so, all the unwanted dirt will be washed away and circulation becomes better.

 

Scalp shampoo is recommended so you can also massage your scalp at the same time. It will help improve your blood circulation

 

When you relax and pamper your hair, your scalp becomes softer and healthier. As such, the hair roots will also be revitalised and grey hair would be reduced. 

 

 

With hair loss and grey hair, it is because of bad blood circulation so we recommended massaging your hair and scalp. Similarly, you can get head spas as salons in order to help your scalp relax. It can also help remove impurities to create a healthier scalp.

 

Step 4: Rebalancing the hormones in your body

 

With an increase in age, the hormones in a female's body would also cause the hair to fall or thin. In order to prevent this, it would be good to regulate your diet and watch what you are eating, as well as to have enough sleep. It would be also good to exercise regularly to reduce stress levels to a minimum. With these, your hair will be able to grow in a healthy manner.

 

 

 Step 5: Changing your lifestyle and diet

 

 Your diet determines your body's condition. It wil be good to eat a lot of food that will benefit your body in a good way because it helps with the healthy growth of your hair too. In order to have this happen, it is crucial that your diet includes healthy food items. According to the Japanese way of living, it has been recommended that your diet includes miso soup, natto (fermented beans), grilled fish as well as some pickled items.

The recommended scalp shampoo is Advangen and it has the shampoo and lotion as well as treatment products. This set of products will be able to help you prevent the hair from ageing further.
