Age defying hair care: Holistic Hair
Age and stage have a major impact on scalp and hair health. During our lifetime, we pass through six key stages: infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, middle years, and senior years.
Hair health is often overlooked as we move through life. We might experience conditions like dandruff, excess oil, and hair loss, but often we just live with it,” says trichology expert Nicky James-Baird.
Nicky and Jodene Fendall are co-owners of Holistic Hair and have spent years formulating products to combat hair concerns. “Scalp and hair health is a function of our overall wellbeing,” says Jodene. “Topical products aren’t a complete cure, but they can make a big difference to restoring shiny, healthy hair.”
Age-defying hair tips:
INFANCY AND CHILDHOOD
Children’s scalps need to be treated with care. Use a mild shampoo once to twice a week. Some infants experience cradle cap which requires an oil to remove the build-up of skin cells. Recommendations: Holistic Hair Pure Shampoo for cleansing and Scalp Treatment Oil for dryness.
Teenagers often produce excess oil associated with hormone changes. Too much oil can be a breeding ground for fungus that causes dandruff. The best defence is to keep the scalp clean.
Recommendations: Holistic Hair Sensitive Shampoo for cleansing and Sensitive Conditioner for the mid to ends of the hair, with Herbal Finishing Rinse Concentrate to treat
Pregnancy can cause changes in both hair texture and growth. Following birth some women experience hair loss.Recommendations: Holistic Hair Pure Shampoo and Conditioner combined with Scalp Treatment Oil.
Changes in hormone levels, sometimes associated with menopause, can result in thinning hair as well as dryness.Recommendations: Holistic Hair Quinoa Colour Protect or Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner to nourish the hair with Essential Scalp Spray or Scalp Treatment Oil for scalp health.
Thinning hair and hair loss are typical in these years, so using gentle products is important. Recommendations: Holistic Hair Pure or Sensitive Shampoo and Conditioner.
