7 Effective Anti-Aging Hair Care Tips for Healthy, Shiny and Younger Looking Hair:

The Fountain of Youth might be a fantasy but achieving healthy, shiny and younger looking hair is definitely not one! It's 100% real and genuinely achievable, all you have to do is follow the below tips:

  • #1 Consider a healthy diet:

First and foremost, healthy hair starts with the intake of healthy foods. Avoid fatty foods, increase the intake of proteins and drink loads of water. Another thing you should include in your diet is foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, flaxseeds and mackerel. Taking supplements of vitamin E, vitamin B7, B3, and vitamin C can also work wonders to your hair. Make sure you are consuming enough proteins in your diet, few of the best sources of protein include milk, egg whites and fish.

  • #2 Meditate:

'S-T-R-E-S-S' - This 6 letter word is the root cause to a lot of hair problems. Meditation both directly and indirectly effects your hair and helps improve their health and restore their shine and texture to a great extent! Excessive long-term stress weakens the nerves and blood vessels of your scalp which in turn has a negative effect on your hair which get severely damaged. Meditation eases the muscles and blood vessels, strengthens the nerves and promotes cell rejuvenation - all of which contribute to healthy and happy hair. 

  • #3 Oil Your Hair Regularly:

Essential oils and carrier oils are a natural solution to ageing hair. They are full of essential fatty acids and are deeply moisturizing, making them the ultimate choice for healing split ends, sealing in moisture, straightening out tangles and adding shine to your hair. Some Essential oils we recommend include:

-Babassu oil:

Babassu is great for your hair. It strengthens collagen fibers in your hair and helps protect hair follicles. It has also been proved beneficial for hair growth which is why it's recommended by hair specialists from all over the world for fighting aging hair.

-Olive Oil:

One of the simplest way to deal with thinning hair is to massage olive oil into your scalp. I myself use olive oil as a leave-in conditioner for 4 to 6 hours after my shower and I have seen great results.

-Argan oil:

Argan oil is very good for fighting a lot of hair problems. With its moisturizing capabilities, it makes hair shiny and healthy and glossier. Argan oil is full of fatty acids and Vitamin E which are great for your hair.

-Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil is rich in Vitamin E and Lauric acid which have antimicrobial powers which help in new hair cell formation. It also has medium chain fatty acids that fortify hair, moisturize and add natural shine to them. You can give your scalp a regular lukewarm coconut oil massage which will help in giving you thicker, shinier and voluminous locks.

-Grapeseed oil:

One of the best things about grapeseed oil is that its non greasy. It locks in moisture and prevents frizz, split ends, and brittle hair. Grape seed oil like coconut oil contains Vitamin E, minerals, proteins and linoleic acid which all promote hair growth. It also deep conditions your hair.

  • #4 Invest In a Good Anti-ageing Hair Tonic:

Hair products can make or break your hair hence its important to choose them wisely and always go for natural hair products. Not all products advertised in the market work for your hair and only a few chosen ones actually deliver. Thankfully, there are a few pocket friendly options available in the market today which can restore your hair to its best condition and make it more stronger and longer than before!
One such great product that we recommend is the MitchellUSA Day + Night Hair Tonic - Scalp Nourishment + Shaft Vitalization. It has all the benefits of wheatgerm, Babasu, Argan, Grape extract, Olive oil and Coconut oil in it which nourish the scalp and provide shaft vitalization.

-Mitchell USA Age-Less Day Hair Tonic:

The day hair tonic is infused with a number of natural extracts and SPF which help in follicle vitalization and protection from the sun/atmosphere. It provides non-sticky nourishment to your hair due to the presence of Babassu in it. The day hair tonic is formulated with chosen essential oils which further help in moisturizing and keeping your hair strong all day long!

-Mitchell USA Age-Less Night Hair Tonic:

The night hair tonic has Calendula, grape extract and pea sprout that help nourish your hair and reduce aging. It not only rejuvenates hair follicles and controls hair aging but also restores and energizes them while you have a good night's sleep!

One of the best thing we love about this hair tonic duo is that it contains Lotus Bio Repair Methyl Transferase Complex (a very powerful enzyme extracted from the 1288 year old sacred lotus seed), and combines Sacred Lotus Seed Extract with peptides, antioxidants, amino acids, anti-inflammatory botanicals and newly discovered algae extracts to repair and renew the proteins that make your hair appear youthful. The unique formula of this duo locks hair from ageing even before it begins or gets too far as days pass by. We recommend it as it keeps hair nourished and moisturized throughout the day and also reduces hair fall and blocks the ageing process!

  • #5 Be Delicate To Your hair:

When it comes to hair it's always 'handle with care' especially when they are in a wet state as that's when they are most vulnerable. Don't dry your hair vigorously, instead use slow downward patting motion. Also, avoid hair sprays as they harden your hair and make it easier for them to break.

  • #6 Use a wide-teethed Comb:

Replacing your regular hair brush with a wide-toothed comb can do wonders. When hair is wet, its best to use your fingers to gently brush them. Avoid teasing your hair often and tight ponytails, top knots and low quality rubber bands are to be strictly avoided.

  • #7 Say NO to Heat and Chemical Hair Treatments:

Avoid exposing your hair to heat unnecessarily and invest in a good heat-protective spray to use before styling. Excessive use of hair curlers, straighteners and chemical techniques weaken the hair at the root level so make your hair decisions wisely! 

Getting a regular hair trim, avoiding hot showers, oiling hair before shampooing and exercising regularly are some other tips to follow to help restore the lustre and shine of your tresses.

It’s never too late to start taking care of your hair and the best time to start is right now. So what are you waiting for? Let's get started with the above tips for healthy, shiny and younger looking hair!
