Whether you are in your 40s, 50s, 60s or older, (male or female) with these simple hair care routine tips I am about to share with you, you will look like you’ve just stepped out of a salon seven days a week!

Stop Daily Shampooing

There is no need to wash your hair daily as you age, your body won’t produce the oils it once did. Meaning your scalp and hair will be less oily and your hair roots will be drier for longer. Try changing your hair washing routine to 2-3 times a week.

Keep Your Hair Well Nourished

Conditioning your hair regularly as you wash it means your hair will keep its nourishment longer. With age, your scalp with dry out, natural oils diminishes and can leave you with an itchy, flaky scalp. Alongside conditioning, you can also keep up the nourishment routine with adding oil to your after wash routine. Even the frequent deep conditioning treatment should be considered if your scalp does try out too much.

You Don’t Need To Go Short

The natural assumption with ageing means people cut their hair short, you don’t need to do this. Embrace your long locks, and with the help of the nourishment mentioned above, your hair will look vitalised. If you have cut your hair short and are regretting your decision, these micro ring hair extensions from Lilyhair could be the answer to your prayers.

Go For A Frequent Trim

As your hair ages, it will become brittle and this will naturally cause split ends. Getting a frequent trim will keep those dry ends at bay.

Dye Your Hair

I am talking to both men and women here when I say this. Hair dye is not off-limits, frequent dying of your hair will help you look youthful. Men, if your hair of beard isn’t turning grey at the same rate, don’t be scared to try some hair dye products to help keep the colour change at a similar rate. If you are going to invest in some dye products, keep an eye out for ammonia-free dye infused with vitamin E to prevent your hair and scalp drying out more.

Getting your hair dyed can be part of your hair care routine.
