The Benefits of Anti-Ageing Hair Care
The last few years have seen anti-ageing skincare at the forefront of the beauty world – but what about anti-ageing hair care benefits? If you’ve noticed a change in the condition and appearance of your locks, or if you want to preserve youthful hair, it’s important to understand the evolution of hair as you age. Adopting a routine with ingredients targeted at supporting hair health can have a significant impact on volume and shine. Read on for our expert-approved advice on ageing hair. We answer frequently asked questions like ‘does hair change texture as you age?’, and reveal your ideal anti-ageing hair care routine using the Kérastase Chronologiste anti-ageing hair care collection.
The evolution of hair as you age
Just like skin, hair evolves over time. So how does your hair change as you get older? Internal elements like hormones can affect hair texture and lead to thinning hair as you age, but external factors have an impact on your hair too. Free radicals caused by aggressors like sun exposure and pollution can influence the look of ageing hair. Here’s what different components mean for your hair:
- Proteins contribute to fullness, bounce and the shiny look of hair.
- Melatonin in the hair can help stimulate growth, so depletion can slow growth and contribute to hair loss.
- Moisture works alongside proteins to give your hair elasticity.
- Melanin production slows with age, resulting in the change of hair colour to grey.
Our 3-step guide to anti-ageing hair care
Embarking on a new hair journey can be daunting, but discovering the right routine to support your hair goals is thankfully simple. To understand how to make hair look younger, look to high quality ageing hair products. Certain ingredients can revitalise and enhance the look of youthful locks – and promote fullness, shine and bounce. To simplify the process, our range of hair products for ageing hair are specifically designed to encourage hair health as you age. The four-step Kérastase Chronologiste anti-ageing hair care routine can help restore the hair fibre and promote density, volume, hydration, and shine.
Step 1: Wash with a hydrating shampoo
Brittle, lacklustre hair needs intense moisture reimplementation, so a hydrating shampoo is the key to rejuvenating soft and shiny hair. Infused with hyaluronic acid, the Chronologiste Regenerating Shampoo is an essential revitalising wash to support the treatment of hair as you age. It’s formulated with abyssine to nourish the hair fibre and vitamin E to help protect from external aggressors like sun exposure. Post pre-wash, massage the Chronologiste Regenerating Shampoo into the scalp and lengths of the hair and rinse.
Step 2: Revitalise moisture with a hair mask
Shampoos clear away excess oil and impurities like debris and dirt, but it’s essential to return moisture back to the hair after washing. A hydrating conditioning mask is an important anti-ageing hair care step, as it preserves optimum moisture levels which are key to youthful hair. Choose a mask with illuminating and moisturising qualities, like the Chronologiste Intense Regenerating Mask. Not only does this treatment help support ageing hair, but it can also contribute to long lasting frizz control and promote a stronger hair fibre. After shampooing, comb the mask through your hair from roots to ends and allow it to permeate the hair for five minutes before rinsing.
Step 3: Protect with a leave in treatment
A hair oil or leave in product is fundamental to the treatment of ageing hair, to protect from harmful external factors. UV radiation, pollution, dry weather conditions and salt water all contribute to ageing hair signs. Ageing hair requires products that can help to seal in moisture and reduce breakage – and the Chronologiste Regenerating Leave-In Treatment meets these needs. It’s designed to help facilitate styling by refining hair texture and sealing the cuticles. This leave in treatment harnesses the hydrating power of hyaluronic acid to nourish the hair and contains vitamin E to help protect from free radicals. To get the best results, implement supportive routine steps around each wash.
