Tip of The Month
MATURE HAIR - how to keep it in tip top condition
It’s an undisputed fact that as we age our hair, once our crowning glory, becomes thinner and weaker
As we age the growth cycle of our hair changes. The rate of growth slows down as the hair follicles start to rest
We experience colour loss and hair will not appear as thick as it once was. To combat this we tend to use more chemical treatments such as colourants, perms and styling aids such as heated rollers, tongs and hair dryers for blow waving with the result that hair becomes weaker - unless it is kept in tip top condition
Some key pointers for fabulous hair:
An obvious one I know but, shampoo regularly and use a conditioner to give it shine
If your hair is fine, only use the conditioner on the ends and avoid heavy conditioners which will weigh the hair down and give you lank locks. Fine hair also benefits from using a volumiser product applied before styling
Give yourself a regular scalp massage or let your stylist treat you during your wash. Apply conditioner or a treatment hair masque first and then gently knead your skull - its also a wonderful stress relieving treatment
You could try sleeping on a silk pillow - great for your face too!
Hair becomes grey due to a lack of melanin and can appear dull as it lacks reflectivity. Grey hair is also coarser and dryer, so try to cut back on hairspray where you can - the alcohol in hairspray can dry your hair out with repeated use, and the polymers that keep your hair in place can make your hair look even more dull
Keeping the same hairstyle is one of the biggest age giveaways, so changing it up could be for the best. Work with your stylist to pick the right cut for your face shape to enhance all of your beautiful features
When wishing to colour your hair, permanents will give the best coverage but they will need toping up every 4-6 weeks. You can add highlights to your natural colour to give a longer lasting look instead
If you are looking for a change in hair style, need some advice on colour or just want to let someone else look after your locks, the Sakers team are ready and waiting to listen, advise and transform!
