How does our hair change as we age?
Your hair can lose elasticity so it breaks easier, which is caused by a dip in keratin levels. Hair can also start to grow in slower, the texture can change and become dryer as well. All are normal factors of ageing, so I wouldn’t get too worried since there’s supplemental changes you can make to slow or prevent these things from happening.
How can we stop our hair from ageing?
I really strongly believe that you will not see changes in your hair by just doing external remedies – you need to do internal as well. For years, I was sending clients to the health food store to get biotin, and fish oil pills!
Our *OUAI Thin Supplements formula includes ashwagandha extract, which is great for reducing stress levels (a major contributor to hair loss), and niacin – an ingredient that helps prevent blockage of cholesterol at the pores.
Can the way we wear our hair make us appear older than we really are?
Haircuts can make all the difference in your appearance. Make sure to consult with your stylist on what looks best on you given your lifestyle, age etc. You want to wear something that complements you – and never want your hair wearing you.
What haircuts and styles will make us look more youthful?
I always say it all depends on you; every cut is different for everyone. I’m loving a short, chic bob or even a lob, which looks flattering on just about anyone, and is easy to manage.
What are the biggest mistakes women make when it comes haircare and styling?
Most people buy their shampoo and conditioner from the same product line (Volume, Repair, Clean, etc) and don’t realise that you usually need a different shampoo and conditioner variety for each.
Fixing this common mistake can be the key to achieving your hair goals.
Aside from the right shampoo and conditioner, what 3 hair products should every woman own?
OUAI Treatment Masque at least once a week for deep restoration. If you’re crunched for time, apply to your strands pre-workout and braid in to let the nourishing ingredients absorb into the hair with the added heat from your exercise.
