Get beautiful hair no matter what your age
Using organic shampoo to gently lift impurities away from the hair could leave tresses glossy and healthy - no matter how old you are.
According to the Daily Mirror, our locks have different needs as we age, so the products we were using ten years ago may not be working so well for us now.
Women in their twenties, for example, might require an intense dry hair treatment to deal with the damage caused by hair straighteners, curling tongs and colouring, so be kind to your barnet by using a gentle cleansing product.
London Hairdresser of the Year Skyler McDonald recommended using "a clarifying shampoo that rids hair of product build-up and oils, without stripping".
Females in their thirties may need to keep their colour vibrant to suit their personality, so the newspaper advised investing in specialist products, such as organic shampoo and conditioner.
"Your hair shade changes as you age, reaching its darkest in your thirties, so colour it to achieve a tone most flattering to your complexion," Skyler noted.
By the time you reach your forties, your hair may have started losing melanin and you could be spotting a few rogue grey strands standing out from your scalp. Whether you decide to cover them with colour or want to turn heads with your stunning silver tresses, you may require a hydrating product that sorts out the wiry, coarse texture of those grey hairs.
Fifty-something women who have gone through the menopause may notice their locks are starting to thin as oestrogen levels fall, which is where a hair loss treatment comes in handy. Some products are said to nurture thinning scalps, while styling goods such as pomades and wax can add volume.
Lastly, females in their 60s and up need to keep hydrating their hair to prevent it from looking thin and lank.
"By now you may be sporting a head of grey or white hair and production of sebum has slowed, leaving hair dry and crying out for conditioning," the hair expert added.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
