●► Hair Tips to Look Younger
Just as the skin has indicators of a person's age, from wrinkles to sunspots, the hair can also be a giveaway. Whether it's an out of date hairstyle, or dry and coarse, there are things you can do to help your hair look younger.
The Cut :-
Your haircut can have a big impact on the way you look. If you have the same haircut you had in college, or even 10 years ago, you are most likely dating yourself. If your hair is long and you're one of those women who brag about not having cut their hair in years, your hair is definitely aging you. To find a haircut that is suitable for your age and face shape, check out photos of celebrities.
The Texture :-
Hormonal changes can cause changes in the hair's texture. Generally, as a person ages, the hair becomes drier and thus frizzier and less manageable. To help your hair regain its youthful sheen, try using a deep conditioning treatment once a week. If you prefer to go the organic route, use olive or sesame oil and leave it in for a few minutes before washing it out with a gentle shampoo. Demi Moore swears that beer is responsible for her glossy locks, so that is another do it yourself treatment option to try.
The Care :-
As your hair becomes drier and more brittle, it is not necessary to wash daily. Washing strips hair of natural oils. Try washing every other day, or even once a week if your hair is very dry. Always use a conditioner on dry hair and an oil-based treatment, like Moroccan Oil, for very dry and unmanageable hair.
The Color :-
Most women go lighter as they grow older. Lighter hair means better coverage for grays, but it also means more maintenance and upkeep for people with dark hair. More color treatments cause hair to become dry and damaged, which can make you look older. Dark hair, or going darker is difficult because it requires even more maintenance as gray hair really stands out in a sea of dark strands. Dark hair can also cast a shadow on crevices, making you look older as dark circles appear under eyes and in the hollows of your cheeks. To cover grays, using a shade that is within two shades of your natural color is best. As gray hairs increase, consider going even lighter, but gradually so that there are no drastic changes in your appearance.
