It’s hard not to notice that as you grow older, your body changes. You may notice more fine lines and wrinkles on your face, you’ll notice that your posture changes and of course, it’s difficult to ignore the effects of aging on your hair.
As you age, your hair will change texture, colour and thickness. You may experience hair thinning, and your hair may even begin to break more easily. Thankfully, there are ways to reverse the effects of aging on hair!
Let’s look at some of the best ingredients in hair care products to help prevent your hair from early aging.
What to Avoid
First things first. There are chemicals which will actually accelerate aging in your hair, as well as cause unwanted health effects in your body. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is one of these chemicals. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, or SLS, is a harsh irritant to the respiratory system.
Parabens are another group of chemicals to avoid. These are known carcinogens and can even disrupt the endocrine system.
To keep things simple, simply stay away from any product you can’t pronounce. Natural ingredients are best for your hair and are the most likely to improve hair health and prevent the signs of aging.
Stop Your Hair from Aging
So which natural ingredients are best to prevent your hair from aging? Let’s explore three ingredients you should look for in shampoos, conditioners and hair care products.
Grapeseed oil provides the ultimate in moisturizing for your hair. The oil is effective as a conditioner, and also helps to strengthen hair, reduce dandruff and alleviate scalp conditions.
Grapeseed oil is also high in antioxidants. That means it can help to repair damaged hair, leaving even the most brittle tresses soft and smooth.
Rosehip oil cares deeply for your scalp. And by tending to your scalp, you provide the optimal conditions for new hair growth.
Rose hip oil is an excellent source of plant-based essential fatty acids. These fats nourish your scalp and your hair, drawing moisture to the scalp and elasticity to your hair.
