Dealing with Aging Hair
My hair as always been fine and thin. I have always had to really work at having soft, shiny, and bouncy hair. Remember the big hair craze of the eighties? That was not something that came easily to me and it still doesn’t.
I started getting gray hair after the birth of my daughter, in my twenties. Not only does gray hair result in a color change, it results in changes to the hair itself. Gray hairs are thicker and wirier which is why they seem more noticeable when you look in the mirror. Some days, it seems like I notice a new gray hair every single day. Aging is challenging enough without adding one more thing to deal with.
A simple way to deal with gray hair is to have it highlighted or colored. I began by highlighting my hair, but I’ve recently started coloring it. I like the overall appearance that coloring gives to my hair. But, I’m not liking how noticeable it is when it starts to grow out. I try really hard to stay on top of my salon appointments, but sometimes time gets away from me. When that happens, there are two new products I’ve added to my hair care routine.
