Starting to care for aging hair should always start with what you eat. Since a considerable player in aging is the loss of protein, a protein-rich diet will help improve the hair’s defense from aging and replenish some of what was lost.
1. Eat Protein-Rich Foods
A lack of protein is linked to hair loss, and eating a little bit of low-fat, red meat a couple of times a week would up your protein and other vital nutrients. What are other great things to eat for some healthy hair?
Spinach and other green leafy vegetables [Folate, iron, and vitamins A and C]
Eggs [Biotin, which is essential for hair protein]
Fatty fish [Omega-3 fatty acids which may promote hair growth]
2. Wash Less Frequently
Washing too frequently can cause hair to become dry and brittle. Wash your scalp 1-2x per week. It may feel strange for two weeks, but the hair will use its natural oils to cleanse itself. Use gentle shampoos indicated for your hair type.
3. Condition & Repair
A vital haircare step is to help replenish hair’s sheen and natural oils lost from washing or being out in the sun. Repairing oils work like support beams to strengthen the protein of each strand of hair, also plumping it to provide more volume per strand.
4. Heat & UV Abstinence
UV radiation can cause hair aging, such as loss of tensile strength and shine, embrittlement, split ends, and hair friction. This damage induces decreased hydration and increased permeability of your hair due to prolonged exposure to sunlight. A hat is always best - or abstinence.
5. Avoid Hormone-Disrupting Chemicals
Parabens, phthalates, and BPA are commonly found in many hair products. According to a 2019 study, they are associated with endocrine activity, carcinogens, infertility, spermatogenesis, and psychological and ecological disruptions.
Bonus Tip: Try to use a microfiber towel to pat your hair dry. Don't rub the towel to dry as wet hair is more prone to damage and breakage, so it is important to use a gentle towel to expedite the drying process. Rubbing to dry off will break natural curls as well.
