I have long blond hair that has been really damaged over the years.
1st of all over the last 10 years my hair texture has changed. It has become thinner, yet courser. It is dry and breaks off very easily.
And as my hair is getting grey streaks, I noticed that my natural blond is becoming this ugly mousy blond color. So I have been coloring my hair in order to bring it back to it’s natural color. And of course this is making my hair even more dry.
But I did find a few solutions that I wanted to share with anyone who is over fifty and having some of the same issues I’m having.
First of all when I wash my hair, I only wash my scalp. The entire head gets washed as the shampoo is rinsed out, but it helps to not dry out your roots.
Then with the conditioner, I only condition the ends. This way my roots don’t get too heavy.
Then after towel drying my hair, I use a bit of argon oil.
I love this stuff!
Argan oil is is an organic oil that comes from an Argan tree that is native to Morocco. The organic Moroccan argan oil is great for aging hair as it is a great moisturizer. It is also naturally very healing and protective. It also is great for skin. But I love it on my hair!
There are lots of organic moroccan argan oil products out there and they can be very costly. But the one I use is Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Penetrating Oil. It is very inexpensive and you will love the results it gives you.
After adding the argon oil to my hair I comb it out and blow it dry.
It makes my hair very shiny and silky. I get lots of compliments on it and my hair doesn’t look like the hair of someone over 50.
Do you have any over 50 hair tricks that you use?
