Getting older can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you may feel wiser and more grounded in who you are, while on the other you’re starting to feel the effects of more cycles around the sun! If you’ve ever had too many Tequila Soda’s after the age of 30, you know what we’re talking about. Apart from needing to get more sleep and update your diet, you’ll also start to see uninvited lines, grey hair and things we can’t even mention without scaring off the millennial crowd. Albeit a beautiful and empowering journey, there’s so much we wish we knew when we were in our 20s!
Hair Starting To Thin?
That gorgeous thick mane you are complaining about… Treasure it because like your skin, thick strands will thin over time. Much like Apple products, it is not IF they will break, it is WHEN. Taking care of your hair is as easy as changing up your diet! We’re talking about essential fatty acids, especially omega-3s. They play a key role in the health of your skin, hair, and nails. You should definitely start incorporating some of these foods, which are rich in omega-3, into your every day diet: salmon, tuna, and other fish choc full of fatty acids.

Strands Are Feelin’ Dry AF
As you age, hydration is essential! Our skin and hair loose that supple, shiny, healthy glow. In comes the need for more water, electrolytes and deep conditioning. Give your strands back the moisture it needs to retain elasticity with a deep conditioning treatment 3 days a week. If you have fine strands or an oily scalp, apply the treatment from mid-shaft to ends to prevent weighing hair down.
First, consult your physician to make sure the root of the problem isn’t more serious. Excuse the pun. Again, we go back to diet. As we age, we can suffer from absorption issues as well as poor eating habits. What you put in directly correlates to what our bodies get out of our meals. Foods like eggs (a great source of protein and biotin, two nutrients that may promote hair growth), spinach, sweet potatoes, avocados, nuts and berries (they are loaded with beneficial compounds and vitamins that may promote hair growth) are all a great place to start when looking to jump-start your hair growth. There are also supplements like biotin that are said to help. You may want to ask your Doc about these too.
Textures You’ve Never Seen Before
As we age, the texture of our hair changes. Curls can loosen or tighten. Some gain texture when they never had it at all. Hormones play a powerful role in the texture of our hair. Talk to your stylist about updating your cut and style routine to best suit your mature hair. Learning a new product regimen may also be key to your makeover so you are walking out of the house in style…. not in a topknot!
