Color change and baldness are two obvious signs of aging. On your late 30’s, your body starts producing lesser melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of your hair, making your scalp hair lighter and eventually turning white. Age, baldness and color change are undeniably hard to hide when you are really on your late adulthood. Thus, you can only rely on simple yet safe techniques to conceal your true age.
Use Hair Dye
Because color change is inevitable, usage of hair dye is recommended. However, it is important to be careful when choosing the hair dye to be used. This is because several hair dyes sold in the market today contain harmful ingredients. Four of the most harmful of which are the following: Ammonia, Hydrogen Peroxide, Ethoxydiglycol, and p- Phenylenediamine. These chemicals can cause skin, eye, and lung irritants that can cause death in large amounts.
Mostly, semi permanent and permanent hair dyes are the ones that contain these harmful ingredients. This also goes the same with the really cheap hair dyes. This is the reason why many companies have produced organic hair dyes available to be available in the market.
Hide your Bald Spots
Hair loss – on the other hand, is even more difficult to cover up. According to researches, 25% of men start having hair loss as early as their 30’s. In addition to that, hair loss has been proven to be genetic. That means that if hair loss is an obvious trait your parents or grandparents have, it is most likely that you will have one.
Therefore, one effective tip to hide your real, old age is to cover up or at least try to hide your bald spots. You can do this by trying a different hairstyle, or if you have a usual hairline, try to change it to lessen the chances of enlarging your bald spots.
Another good point that you may consider is using a hair growing treatment. Many, especially those who are still in their 30’s try applying hair growing treatments as soon as possible. It is imperative to act immediately on how to prevent the hair loss from getting worse as it is very difficult when the worst comes. Always keep in mind however, that just like hair dye treatments, these hair growing treatments may also worsen the situation. This is why you should keep an eye on the ingredients and take extra careful on chemicals that you are allergic with. It is also recommended that you stick with organic products.
Eat and Live Healthy
Remember that hair loss and color change go with age. Inevitable as it may be, one can still at least lighten the situation by eating and living healthy. Know that stress can cause baldness of hair and as well as quicken hair death. Although there is no significant study that proves that exercising, avoiding alcoholic drinks and nicotine, and consumption of fruits and vegetables can slow down the possibility of hair loss and color change, it is still best to stick with that’s healthy and good for the entire body. After all, our hair and scalp are still parts of our body that need care and attention.
Although these are just simple steps on hiding your real age, it is still important to consider asking your doctor what good supplements you can take and what you can do with these hair and scalp issues. Aside from that, remember that your age doesn’t define your attitude. Always act young and stay young, be confident on your looks despite your age and no one will notice how your hair looks like, or how old you even are.
