Hair curls as I get older

Advice for your hair from a professional hairstylist.

As I get older, I feel my natural curls becoming stronger.

Aging Care

What are the reasons?

 

The reason for these curls is that as you age, the internal condition of your hair changes. A fibrous protein known as the Cortex exists within the hair and has a major role in retaining moisture Normally, this Cortex is flat inside the hair, but for hair with natural curls, it is twisted. This is one of the causes for the curls. 

 

Furthermore, when you look at the cross section of the hair, it can be divided into a hydrophobic, hard to retain moisture and hydophilic, easy to retain moisture. For, people with natural curls, the hydrophobic areas are larger and there is a thought that this causes dryness. The two parts intersect each other and this is also one of the reasons for the curls.

 

 

Is there anything we can do about this situation?

 

If you are concerned about these natural curls, there are various salon services that you can consider such as, straigthening, rebonding or moisturizing treatments. However, the best recommendation that we can give is to improve the daily care you do for your hair. However, there is a limit to how much improvement the same product can give you as your condition improves over time. As such we recommend that you change the products according to the condition of your hair, this is the fastest way to improve it and make it easier to handle. By improving the strength of your hair, even hard to manage hair will become easy to manage. Of course, there are many salon service that can be done to aid you so do consider them as well.

 

If there are no other options, you can consider salon services such as straightening, rebonding or moisture treatment. But before relying on them, it is still important to do home care. As you age, the condition of your hair changes, and you have to fit your home care to these changes. First, do daily care to prevent damage and work towards healthy hair. By doing rebonding or moisture treatment to fit your situation, it leads to better aging care
