Hairstyles for older women have gotten a bad rep.
The lack of moisture and texture changes can make the products that we have trusted for most of our lives useless. Guess what? The products I have been recommending for curly hair are the same products I would recommend for aging hair. Aging hair styling starts in the shower. Be sure to use moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. When you’re ready to style, my recommendations are ‘don’t’s’ rather than ‘do’s’. Avoid alcohol, sulfates, and silicone in your products. Read the label – if you can’t pronounce it, you probably don’t want to use it (steps off of soapbox). I’m currently recommending hair products from Alterna. This hair care company really fits the criteria.
Has this happened to you?
You shampoo your hair and it comes out by the hand full? I personally am in the midst of “the change” as Jessica Tandy said in “Fried Green Tomatoes”. This is usually a sure sign of hormonal changes. But if you’re not yet in your 50’s or well past them, it might be a good idea to have your thyroid checked by your healthcare professional. If all other causes have been ruled out (age, thyroid, medications, etc.) it could be due to stress or even heredity.
If you’re at all concerned about your thinning hair, there are more options now than just Rogaine. We have just brought in the Kevin Murphy line into Mira Bella Salon and Spa. KM has a new product called Body Mass that utilizes the same medicine as the eyelash restoring products. We can special order the accompanying shampoo and conditioner for you. We are also introducing Alterna Haircare to the salon and their Caviar Clinical line that will organically improve hair growth and enhance volume. Changes are good, embrace them and learn from them. If you would like some additional product information or styling tips, feel free to call me at (805) 324-7950 for a consultation.
