Imagine if you read this in the newspaper:
“The victim was tied up, teased, pinned, tortured with chemicals, cut, burned – and eventually dyed.”
It’s a terrible list of crimes … yet this is the sort of treatment we regularly subject our hair to.
And yet we still expect expect our hair to look great!
It’s the modern day conundrum: although we all want healthy, beautiful hair – really, we do everything guaranteed to NOT keep our hair healthy!
Steps for Healthy Hair
So today I’m sharing my steps for healthy hair especially for the Middle Aged Mamas amongst us:
- A Healthy Diet. Your hair is directly affected by what you put in your mouth. Did you know, scientists can tell if you have been taking drugs – and which ones – just by examining a strand of your hair? Eating a diet rich in vitamins and minerals will not only mean YOU are in optimum health, it will also benefit your hair!
- Keep it Trimmed. I’m not going to enter into the debate of whether over 40′s should or shouldn’t have longer hair. Whatever length your hair happens to be, getting it trimmed regularly keeps it tidy and eliminates the split ends that make your hair look dry, flyaway and dull. I find that a great cut is worth every cent – there is nothing like the feeling of having a good hair day, everyday!
- Adapt to Change. One thing I’m learning as I move closer to menopause, is that my skin and hair condition is changing. I’m no longer bothered by the greasies, which is great! But it’s more than that – as greys come through, they change the texture of your hair, making it feel coarser. Make sure you switch to a style and products that suit your hair NOW, not the hair you had ten years ago.
- Look After It. The reality is that we *will* tie up, tease, pin, curl, straighten, colour and generally torture our hair all in the name of beauty. Do your hair a favour and make sure you are using products to protect and look after it, like the ones from Sunsilk Australia.
Do you have any other tips for healthy hair – and which hair crimes have you committed lately?!
