6 Ways Your Hair Can Make You Look Older Than You Actually Are
By admin on June 05, 2017
Did you know that you don’t have to have a lot of gray hair or develop wrinkles for you to look old? A lot of women think that those laugh lines and crow’s feet are the ones that are giving their age away. What they fail to realize is that you could be in you mid-20’s and be mistaken as a middle-aged woman simply by how your hair looks!
So to avoid aging your look, learn these hair mistakes that you might be making.
1. Dry Hair From Too Much Sun Exposure
We already know that UV rays are bad for your skin because, but did you know it is too on your hair? It can really dry your hair out which can lead to very visible spilt-ends, discoloration, and make it look puffy.
2. Sporting A Color That Washes You Out
Yes, dyeing your hair blond can be fun and kind of lightens you up. However, going way too blond, especially when you already have pale skin, washes you out and age your appearance. This is not to say that you can’t have fun with your hair, but if you really want to go blonde, try going for a natural root base with subtle balayage highlights around your face so that it adds dimension not just to your hair but on your overall appearance too.
3. Ends That Are Fried
Ever noticed how your hair looks better just by going for a trim? That’s because it cuts the driest part of your hair—the ends. Dry ends make you look kind of dehydrated too which tends to make us look older. Of course, you can’t trim your hair very often to achieve a fresher look, but a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week helps to make your hair look shiny and well-nourished which gives can give you a youthful glow.
4. Coloring Your Hair In One Flat Tone
Yes, at-home hair color packs are cheaper and sort of convenient because you can color your hair at the comfort of your own home. However, since most of us aren’t very skilled and knowledgeable when it comes to hair dyeing, we only get that flat and lifeless color. This then results in looking sallow and pale, which is not a very youthful look. If you really can’t afford to have you hair dye done by a professional, just remember to mix lighter and darker colors to give you that youthful dimension.
5. Going Too Little Or Too Much On Hair Products
Hair products can either make or break your hair. If you want hair products to work in your favor, learn what works for your hair, stick to that, and use them in moderation. Don’t put too much because dumping all sorts of products on your hair can clog your scalp and lead to different hair issues like dandruff and oily scalp. On the other hand, using too little may be depriving your hair of the improvements it can do with a little help of conditioners and masks.
6. Cutting It Too Short When You Hit 40
For some reason, some women believe that once you hit the big 4-0, long hair no longer fly. So they hastily decide to chop their tresses off without even knowing if the cut will fit their face shape and hair’s texture. I guess you just have to find what works for you, if you really want a short do, ask your stylist what cut and length accentuate your face best. But don’t be afraid to keep wearing it long as long as you keep it looking luscious, hydrated, and bouncy.
