Signs Of Aging Hair And How To Treat It By Barbies Beauty Bits

As we get older like everything else with our body our hair changes, from dry hair to grays and worse thinning hair.  It seems when most people think of anti-aging they think of the skin. But our hair is also important.

As our hair ages, it starts to get dryer, and this is one thing that I have noticed about my hair. I have always spent tons of time on my hair, so having it look good is a must for me.  This is why I was excited when I had the chance to partner up with Kenra Professional Hair Products and try out some of their newest anti-aging hair care.

So, if you want to find out some of the most common signs of aging hair and how you can treat it continue reading.
 

Signs Your Hair Is Aging
As mentioned about as we get older our hair will start to get dryer and brittle it also begins to show evidence of volume loss and shine, elasticity, and texture change. Additionally, those evil grays become more prominent.  This is another thing that was happening to me, and this is why I went from a lifetime of being a brunette to a blond, as it is much easier to cover. And if all of that wasn’t bad enough you may start to deal with thinning hair. So what is a girl to do?

First, you need to look at a few things as aside from age as there can be some contributing factors to your aging hair.

Styling Products
One of the things to consider is the arsenal of products you are putting into your hair. If you are styling your hair with gel, mousse or similar products, it would be a good idea to wash these off your scalp and out of your hair before you lay down to rest for the night. These products can be very drying, and some of them can clog pores, which could result in hair loss.

Another thing to consider about your hair products are the products themselves.  The ingredients in your hair care products are essential, plus don’t cheap out when it comes to your hair products, as quality does make a difference. However, going to a salon can be expensive and not always convenient, but not any longer with Kenra Professional as they recently launched the New Kenra Platinum Snail Anti-Aging Collection, Kenra Shaping Spray 21 and Kenra Platinum Heat Block Hairspray 22 at Ulta Beauty.


KENRA PLATINUM SNAIL COLLECTION
The fastest growing anti-aging Korean beauty secret is Snail Essence, and now you too can apply this to your hair. The NEW Kenra Platinum Snail Anti-Aging Collection is the 1st professional hair care product infused with Snail Essence, a highly concentrated blend of proteins proven to awaken the youth in hair. And no worries, no snails were harmed in the production of this product. Hence, I was excited to try out 3 of these products, the cc cream, shampoo, and conditioner.

This luxurious paraben-free line is a 10-in-1 corrective formula that helps to restores and prolongs youth by fighting all the aging hair issues I mentioned above, totaling 10…

Snail Anti-Aging Shampoo & Conditioner
Heavy shampoo’s and conditioner can contribute to weighing our hair down.  I liked that this shampoo was a sulfate-free formula that helps to provide softness and youthful movement by restoring shine and prolonging agility of the hair at any age. And the conditioner is a lighter conditioner, so it doesn’t make your hair greasy or weigh it down, which is important as I do not wash my hair every day.  The conditioner helps to restore manageability and prolongs youth by bringing moisture, radiance, and resilience to the hair.

Kenra Snail Anti-Aging CC Creme
This product is applied after you towel dry your hair and is a great detangler as well. You can use this cc cream by itself or as a foundation for the layering of your other paraben free styling products.

Kenra Platinum Heat Block Spray
Hair breakage is a significant contributor to thin hair and combine that with a hot styling tool, your hair is doomed! A quick way to prevent your hair from getting damaged is to apply a heat protector on your hair. And Kenra’s new Heat Block Spray is here to help. Enriched with bee propolis, this natural resin forms a cast around the cuticle for exceptional heat protection up to 450°F (232°C).

I am an 80’s girl, so I love me some hairspray, but it can be damaging to the hair because of alcohol and other harmful ingredients. But not with Kenra’s hairsprays as it is alcohol-free.

Stop Overdoing The Do
Don’t Wash Your Hair Everyday 
Keeping your hair clean is important, but washing it too often can thin your hair.  The longer you can go without washing your hair the better!

Don’t Brush Your Hair While It Is Wet  
If your hair is wet, keep the brush away. Instead, use a t-shirt to dry your hair, and let it air dry prior to brushing. When wet, the follicles of your hair lose some of their strength and are more easily damaged. Your hair will be more likely to fall out prematurely if you are in the habit of brushing it while it is still wet.

Don't Over Dry
Blowing drying your hair all the time can cause your hair to become brittle and flat.  Partially air drying your hair will allow your hair to be stronger. Overexposure to heat on your hair can make your hair look dull, as the heat from the dryer causes the cuticles to open, which can lead to frizz and breakage.  A tip to save on drying time, don’t apply conditioner to your entire hair, only apply to the ends of your hair.

Diet
In addition to having quality products, one of the simplest ways to keep your hair healthy and strong is through your diet. Eat foods that have a lot of vitamin A and E. These help with hair. Your hair can regain its strength by also supplementing your diet with olive oil, fish, and walnuts.

Additionally, certain vitamins, minerals, and healthful fats are necessary for healthy hair. Some that you want to include are vitamins C and E, and the minerals biotin and zinc.

Tips To Help With Thinning Hair By Barbies Beauty Bits
Thinning Hair
Thinning hair sucks ass, but I did read somewhere that you can help to prevent hair loss by adding capsicum from spicy foods in your diet as they are supposed to help increase circulation.  A known spice that contains capsicum is cayenne pepper, and from what I have heard it could stimulate some hair growth, and contribute to strengthening hair follicles. I do know that cayenne peppers also have a lot of vitamin A, and that is useful for reducing any hair problems as well as maintaining general health.

Foods that are high in protein can also slow the process of hair loss. Eating the right amount of healthy protein will bring about much needed keratin for your hair. When you have plenty of keratin in your body, the hair will be strong and healthy.

Bottom line, your hair is like a record of what you've put into your body. So while you can't actually nourish your existing strands with nutrition, remember that your hair is replacing itself all the time, so eventually using the correct products along with a healthy diet will help to renew your aging hair back to life. 

Want some try some anti-aging products for your hair? Well now you can, as all product mentioned are available at Ulta Beauty!
