Hair a healthier

Every woman over 50 dreams about strong, shiny and flexible hair. Let’s say enough is enough to dry and dull hair and create a new approach to haircare, discovering beauty tips from experts to give your hair a healthier look for the new year.

Some General Tips For Healthier Hair

    • Keep on a healthy diet, take vitamins and forget about fatty foods. The main building materials for healthy hair are iron, zinc, proteins and fatty acids. Include products containing these beneficial substances in your diet. Your hair needs protein to make keratin. Eggs and fish are the most obvious source of protein. Vitamins are necessary for the growth and restoration of hair, nails, a beautiful complexion and clean skin. First of all, they are proteins, fatty acids, vitamins A, group B, especially B12, C, E, zinc and daily water intake. Fatty acids are involved in the production of collagen and keratin, they maintain a hormonal balance that directly affects the density of the hair.

  • Protect your hair from the sun. We all know that prolonged exposure to the sun is not good for our hair. Use hats and sprays to protect it from sunlight, wind, and saltwater.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Don’t use hot water after the conditioner. Never comb wet hair because it’s very fragile after washing.
  • Wash your hair 2-3 times a week. Daily washing and conditioning leach nutrients from the hair follicles, so it loses moisture.
  • Cut your hair every two months (at least 1-2 cm). It’s not about a global change in image. Regular cuts every 6-8 weeks will ensure healthy growth and prevent stratification. It may sound absurd, but such a method is simply necessary for those who want to grow long hair.
  • Do not dye your hair too often. Alternatively, use a dying shampoo that slightly changes the tone and makes it fresher.

Before The Two-Week Hair Care Program

Prepare the necessary beauty products before the program.

  • A shampoo. Shampoos cleanse hair and scalp from grease, dust, and dirt. The properly selected shampoo is able to make hair smooth, silky, and shiny. When using shampoo, they become more manageable and do not electrify. A good and high-quality product is able to restore life and strength even to the dullest and sickest hair. Choose a shampoo without parabens and perfumes. It makes little foam, but it’s less harmful to the hair. Massage the head with your fingers for 3-5 minutes to improve blood circulation. Pay special attention to the cleansing shampoos. Use shampoo for deep cleaning to remove chlorine, silicones, wax. My choice is Kendra Clarifying Shampoo or a deep cleansing shampoo by Londa.
  • A conditioner. A conditioner closes hair scales and makes your hair smooth creating a protective barrier that prevents the aggressive environment. Try to test Joico Color Infuse Conditioner that makes hair easier and restores its natural pH. Apply it on damp hair right after the shampoo to give it extra moisture.
  • A mask. A mask contains more nutrients than a conditioner. A mask is key means in hair care: due to the high concentration of the necessary ingredients, it will help to fully nourish your curls.
  • Additional products: serums, oils and heat protection products. Protection sprays contain glycerin and oils which retain moisture inside the hair. They also protect hair from dryness and brittleness.

Healthy Hair Step By Step

Let’s be honest: it’s not possible to make your hair healthy just within two weeks. But during this time, you can improve its condition and make it shiny.

So, let’s get started! Please, don’t dye your hair during the program, cut your hair to 1-2 cm, if possible, and don’t forget about hair-friendly foods.

Week 1

Day 1. Comb your hair at least 2 times a day. Start with a deep cleansing shampoo and prewash spray. For example, let’s take Intensive Cleanser by Londa Professional to get rid of the remaining styling products. Prewash spray is the first step to strengthen hair against damage caused by drying. Its innovative formula makes hair hydrophobic and maintains the necessary level of pH. The PreWash protects hair from water. It creates a hydrophobic barrier reducing hair swelling that happens during the washing routine.

Day 3. Wash your hair and apply a nourishing mask for at least 15 minutes. I’d recommend Vitamino-Color A-OX by L’Oréal Professionnel or Fondamental Riche by Kérastase. You can also try a home-made mask with honey and mustard. Apply a few drops of coconut oil and protection spray after the treatment.

Day 5. Massage your head for 15 min and comb your hair. Apply a moisturizing mask for 15-20 min. Let’s try Olive Fruit Oil Mask by Kiehl’s. It also contains avocado oil to make your hair shiny.

Week 2

Day 1. Continue massaging and combing your hair to improve blood circulation and growth. Today, we’ll try a nourishing serum. My choice is Natural Formula Keratin Intense Serum with panthenol, pro-vitamin B5 and keratin. These components prevent increased brittle hair and fight with split ends.

Days 3 and 5. Repeat the treatment using masks and protection sprays for styling. Don’t forget about Rapid Lisse Hair Turban that will help to make your hair stronger and smoother.

You’ll see that your hair begins to look more shiny and beautiful. Remember, that the condition of your hair depends not only on quality products but on your lifestyle as well.
