Anti-Aging....For Your Hair
Posted on: September 22, 2016
Many people are diligent about their skin care and see an esthetician regularly because they want to protect their skin from aging. However, your hair also has a tendency to age, which is why it requires regular care. Limiting heat exposure is one of the best things that you can do to protect your hair from aging.
Keratin is a protein that is essential for healthy hair. When keratin gets depleted, it causes your hair to age faster. Heat can deplete keratin. That is why the flat-iron, curling iron and blow dryer should not be a part of your daily hair care routine.
If your hair is oily, then washing your hair is probably a part of your daily hair care routine. However, you should avoid using too much shampoo. Excessive shampoo use will strip away the lipids that give your hair shine and reduce breakage. Make sure that you rinse all of the shampoo out of your hair.
You also have to be very careful when you are styling wet hair. Your hair is very fragile when it is wet. Older hair is also fragile. You should detangle your hair with a wide-toothed comb while you are still in the shower. You should also condition your hair after washing it.
You may have heard that brushing your hair 100 times a day will help it grow. However, brushing your hair too much weakens it. Your hair requires regular brushing, but you do not want to overdo a good thing.
Additionally, taking care of your overall health is just as important as hair and skin care. Any esthetician will tell you that stress can ruin your skin and hair, so it is important to find healthy ways to deal with it. You will also need to follow a healthy diet.
