Sprouting grays, dulling shine, thinning tresses—aging hair is far from the most exciting part of getting older. So it’s important to tackle the causes of such occurrences with tips to promote healthy hair through the ages. It’s never too late to start! Here are four basic routine essentials to remember:
1. Never underestimate the power of a healthy diet, even when it comes to your hair. A substantial amount of protein, vitamins A, C, and E, and calcium are the basis of strong hair growth. If need be, boost your intake of these essentials with supplements.
2. Skip products that strip your locks of their natural oils and instead choose ones that specifically aim to rebuild your hair’s strength. The reviving shampoo and conditioner from the Nexxus Youth Renewal line do just that and prevent against further damage as well. Boasting Unique Vita-8 Complex with premium ingredients that replenish shine, stop breakage, and enhance color and moisture, you’ll have more vibrant, younger-looking hair in no time.
3. You’ve heard this one before, but we’ll say it again—stay out of the sun. Just as the rays wreak havoc with skin, UV light dries out hair. Years of sun exposure will definitely take its toll—hair will appear dull and break more easily. Wear a hat to shield locks against further distress over time.
4. Hold off on the chemical treatments periodically—and at-home heating tools like straighteners and curling irons too. These routines burn strands over time, causing them to lack luster and snap more easily. Give your tresses a necessary time-out here and there by letting your hair go all-natural for a while.
