Why You Should Change Your Hair Care Routine Every Decade

It’s not just the way you dress and your skin care routine that needs to be adapted for your age, even your hair care routine needs to be re-thought each decade. This is because hair changes over time, getting drier and thinner. Read on to find out why you should consider changing your hair routine each decade and how to do it.

Adolescence

It may be too late for this advice, but if so remember it for your daughter. During adolescence hair is arguably at its best in terms of elasticity, volume and colour vibrancy. Now is the time to start good habits and avoid colouring or the overuse of heated styling appliances and chemicals. Enjoy the natural brilliance of your hair at this age and avoid damaging it before you are even out of your teens.

20s and 30s

Hair will still be in a good condition during your 20s, but now is the time to start nourishing it, as it begins to thin in the start of your 30s. Hair will also start to thin after having children (although often looks fabulous whilst pregnant).

Nourish hair both by doing a weekly treatment and by using a nourishing shampoo such as KLORANE shampoo with mango butter, available from http://www.lifeandlooks.com/klorane-with-mango-butter.html. When it comes to styling, allow yourself to go for something funky and youthful that reflects your personality.

40s and 50s

Hair gets slightly thinner and drier during your forties and fifties and not only needs a dedicated weekly treatment at home but also one every time you visit the salon. Now is also when hair is likely to start going grey, so it’s a good time to think about whether you are going to colour it, and if so, whether you will do this at home, at a salon or use henna.

60 plus

Once you are in your sixties your grey coverage is likely to be fairly saturated. At this stage some women choose to embrace their natural colour and stop dying it. Hair gets noticeably thinner and drier now, so it’s time to ditch harsh hair chemicals and heat treatments and embrace natural products.

Making these small changes as the years go by could see you with a healthier, more suitable head of hair for your age.
