There’s been a good deal of chatter about hair on my blog and Instagram since we’ve all had to spend time in quarantine. Whether lamenting our inability to get a haircut or worrying over grey roots, many of us are using this time to make different decisions about what we do with our hair. Women went grey all the way or learned to color their hair by themselves and met hair stylists in backyards. The move towards living in more natural ways has engaged us during these changing times. We remembered how creative and resourceful we can be. We’ve embraced what we have the power to change and responded creatively to what we cannot.
While already loving my grey, I’ve let my hair grow longer than it’s been for years. Unlike the last time I wore it long, in my thirties, right now age is presenting some hair management challenges. While my hair has always been thick, more recently, especially when I look at where my hair parts, I’m detecting some thinning. My scalp wants to make even more of an appearance. While I used to get away with just a good conditioner, I find my hair dryer than ever, even when I leave the conditioner on for a while. I’ve noticed more flyaways too. I’ve accepted other aspects of aging, like what it does to my skin, I’m late to the game in understanding what happens to aging hair. So like I’ve taken control of how I respond to other aspects of aging, I’m taking control of how I respond to my aging hair.
So it’s time to move on from those generic, made for all women, hair care products, and try some made specifically to target the challenges that come with aging hair. So I’m using Hair Biology Silver and Glowing Shampoo and Conditioner. It cleans and removes dulling residue and lets my white really shine through. Both products are free of parabens and infused with biotin (AKA Vitamin B7), which is known to improve the body’s keratin infrastructure and support strong, healthy hair growth. To be honest, since I’m now taking a probiotic, I prefer a topical method to get the beneficial effects of B7, rather than taking yet another supplement. And if you’re not ready for the jump into grey, there’s an entire line of products for however you want to style or color your hair. The common characteristic they all share is they are formulated for aging hair.
I’ve also added a weekly Deep Hydration Mask Treatment to my hair routine to help with the dryness. For those annoying flyaways, I use the Argan Oil Taming Serum before styling. It’s easy to manage to get the entire line of Hair Biology products because they’re affordable, are in store in your local Target and on-line too.
So I’ll let you be the judge as I continue my long hair journey, now with an assist from Hair Biology. Let’s hear more of your hair revelations and if you try it, let me know how it goes for you too.
