16 Surprising Anti-Aging Hair Care Tips

16 Surprising Anti-Aging Hair Care Tips

Getting older is inevitable, and as we move through the aging process, we notice that our hair goes through many changes. Completely reversing this process isn't possible, it's only natural, but there are certain measures we can take to noticeably delay aging and prolong the overall health and well being of our hair. 

When you make health and wellness a priority, you might be surprised to see that the results not only effect your body, but also help boost the health of your hair. You may never find the fountain of youth. Hormones and shifting chemicals causes hair to get brittle, drier, and thinner as we age, but these tips can support the health of your hair, leaving it shinier and healthier.

1. Fish Oil


Did you know that fish oil is one of the best anti-aging products around today? In addition to improving heart and immune functions, fish oil is well-known for stimulating healthy hair growth. It’s worth mentioning that you should read the labels before making a purchase. This will help you stay away from fish oil that has insecticides.

2. Adopt a Healthy Diet


Healthy hair begins with a healthy diet. Make an earnest effort to get plenty of lean proteins while avoiding too much fat. Lean poultry is a rich source of protein.

3. Take Supplements


You should also consider taking the following vitamin supplements: vitamin B7, vitamin B3, vitamin C, and vitamin E. These vitamins are essential for hair growth.

4. Get a Regular Trim


Getting a regular trim every five to seven weeks will keep your hair healthy and will also keep your hair growing. Ask your stylist to give you a haircut that will make your hair look thicker. An experienced stylist will be able to do this with ease.

5. Rejuvenating Oil Treatment


Rejuvenating oil treatment works well if you use it once a week. Focus on using a blend of ultra-light plant and flower oils. The molecules in these oils will penetrate your hair shaft and restore lost moisture. Professional hair stylists use rejuvenating oil treatments every day in their salons.

6. Be Delicate With Your Hair


Instead of drying hair vigorously with a towel after shampooing, baby your hair. Hair is more vulnerable to suffering damage while it’s wet, so gently press your hair dry with a towel and allow it to air dry for best results.

7. Purchase a Quality Hair Brush


Ever hear the old saying, “You cannot buy steak with hamburger money”? You must buy a quality hair brush, maybe one that has a mixture of boar’s hair bristles and snag-free nylon bristles, if you are serious about maintaining the health of your hair. Investing in a quality hair brush will help move the natural oils from the scalp down to the hair shaft, feeding hair those essential nutrients it craves.

8. Hot and Steamy Showers


Hot and steamy showers have an exceptional reputation when it comes to helping us wind down after a long day. However, hot and steamy showers are not ideal for your hair. Hot water can strip your hair of essential oils. Stick with warm and cold showers and your hair will thank you.

9. Avoid Chemical Treatments


Manufacturers of chemical treatments make bold promises to consumers. This is why it’s hard for some of us to resist trying them. Contrary to popular belief, they are not good for your hair. Chemical treatments like dying, straightening, and bleaching make your hair dry which leaves it prone to more frequent breakage.

10. Washing Your Hair


Washing your hair removes vital natural oils. Give you hair two to three days to recover from shampooing. You should also consider using a homemade shampoo if you have the urge to shampoo daily. You can find dozens of recipes for homemade shampoos on the internet, or ask your hair stylist, they may know a few.

11. Avoid Strong Holding Products


Strong holding products are notorious for having high alcohol content. The high alcohol content can make your hair dry and brittle. We cannot discuss beauty tips for your hair without mentioning Aloe Vera gel. Aloe Vera gel is the perfect substitute for hair gel. You can use it for a light and healthy hold.


12. Check Your Medication


If you are suffering from hair loss, you may want to check your medication. It may be the culprit.

13. Give Your Scalp Some Tender Loving Care


You can reduce hair loss by keeping your scalp clean. Give your scalp a clarifying treatment to keep pores on the scalp free of dirt and impurities. This will help keep your hair strands smooth.

14. Brush with Care


Some people are under the impression that they must brush their hair at least five or six times a day. On the contrary, this is one easy way of damaging your hair’s cuticle, for sure. Frequent brushing will also weaken your hair.

15. Don’t be a Big Tease


Teasing can give your hair volume and height, but it can also damage your hair. It’s okay to tease your hair once in a while. Also, try a root booster or texturizing spray which can give your hair a big lift without the tangles and damage.

16. Lower your Stress Level


Living in a crazy world can be hectic and extremely stressful. Stress can have a negative impact on your hair. Yoga, deep-breathing exercises, and meditation are three ways you can help lower your stress level.
