As you’ve gotten older, your hair’s become more difficult to manage. It’s drier, it gets tangled easily, and it doesn’t have that same bounce and luster as it did when you were in your twenties. Sometimes you think about just cutting it all off and moving on with your life. But with the right treatments, you can start making your hair stylish at any age. 

Here’s a list of tips for keeping your hair stylish no matter your age:

1. Use Products that Nourish and Moisturize Your Hair

If your hair is becoming dry and brittle, consider using hair styling products containing natural ingredients. The same goes for conditioners, oil hair masks, moisturizing shampoos, and other products that are rich in oils and butter. You can also massage certain oils like coconut oil and olive oil into your hair, then rinse them out thirty minutes later. Make sure you heat the oil beforehand so it’s soft and pliable.

2. Eat a Healthy Diet

It might seem surprising, but eating a healthy, vitamin-rich diet can mean the difference between soft, lustrous hair and hair that’s cracked and brittle. To start, make sure you’re getting plenty of vitamin A. This vitamin promotes hair growth and keeps your scalp from getting dried out. Biotin is another essential vitamin that keeps your hair, skin, and nails looking healthy and radiant. It’s best to get these kinds of nutrients in your diet, but you can also take a vitamin supplement. Just make sure you talk to your doctor first to make sure you’re not getting too many vitamins, as this can be toxic to your body.

3. Don’t Be Afraid to Let It Grow

Who says that you have to cut your hair short when you turn fifty? Don’t be afraid to let your hair grow out. Just make sure you keep it simple: the elaborate styles you wore in your twenties might end up damaging your hair. If it gets in the way, a simple bun or ponytail can keep your hair in place without drying it out. Be sure to use a good shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair thick and voluminous.

4. Go Easy on the Hairspray

Using hairspray once in a while won’t damage your hair, but if you’re using it every day, it can start drying out your hair and scalp. For this reason, don’t be afraid to go natural once in a while. It’s best to give your hair the chance to breathe without all the added sprays and chemicals. If you use hairspray from time to time, make sure you’re using a good shampoo that rinses the chemicals out of your hair instead of letting them build up.

5. Avoid Overdoing it With the Styling Products

On a similar note, don’t layer your hair with harsh styling products every day. If you do, the products will start to build up and leave a layer of product and chemicals on your hair. This can dry out your hair, create dandruff-like flakes, and even cause permanent damage. If you’re prone to frequent styling, use a clarifying shampoo to rinse out all the build-up and residue, leaving your hair healthy and fresh.

6. Use a Soft Bristle Brush

As we get older, our hair becomes more fragile. If you’re hacking through your hair with a stiff brush, you could damage the hair and cause breakage. Use a soft bristle brush that combs your hair gently without tugging at the hair or scalp follicles.
