When we talk anti-aging, it shouldn’t be limited to skincare alone. Hair colors and styles can be significant factors too. Having the right shade can be as effective as using jars of creams on your face.
As you grow older, it is important that your hair color changes to compliment your age. If you are young, it is easier to pull off bold looks, but as you grow older, you should tone down how bright your hair color appears as this naturally ages your look.
Here are some possible situations and how to get out of them:
If you are a brunette, you might notice that as you get older, your hair color washes out your skin tone and casts dark shadows on your light skin.
A good fix: You can try adding highlights to them. You don’t need to dye your hair all over. This simple fix would bring life to your complexion and give you a natural glow. You can add the highlights to the top layer of your hair and the ones that frame your face. This only needs to be redone at most twice a year, so it is very pocket-friendly. You can use shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair.
If you are already going grey, you might think it’s possible just to go blonde and hide the grey that way. You can do that, but you need to be cautious, as going too blonde can emphasize wrinkles, dark spots, and circles.
A good fix: Go for a warm blonde color. You can make it ombre in a way that the roots are lighter, so your gray is well hidden. You can also add a handful of gold highlights; this would give you a glow and warm up your skin tone.
If you originally had dark hair and you’ve used a lot of lightening products or dyes, your hair may have lost its tint. It could also look flat or just out of control.
A good fix: your hair should be made darker to bring back to its original color. After doing this, you would be able to see a difference immediately. You can go an extra step and add honey coloured highlights to the hair framing your face. Make sure you maintain the hair color by using the UV-protecting spray, so the color does not go out of control again.
If you are currently rocking your grey hair proudly, a lot of factors could affect its shine. Grey hair is vulnerable to almost everything in the environment including UV rays. Therefore, it is very easy for the hair to become dull-looking.
A good fix: you can deep-condition the hair, use a clarifying shampoo to remove build up of minerals or other particles. Start with the shampoo. Also, feel free to wear your hair in stylish cuts. Grey hair can be very elegant.
Finally, if you have light eyes and light skin, you can totally go copper. Dark red though like a dark auburn would be perfect. Even if you don’t, you can still try this lookout. Keep in mind, the darker your eyes and skin, the darker you have to go.
Just remember, don’t stray too far from your natural color as your hair would just be in a constant battle with the dye. This means you would have to put constant effort into making sure that it looks exactly how you want it.
Accept what you have and work with it, trust me, it would turn out fab.
