HELLO friends! This post is about healthy beautiful hair at 60 but really — any age!
Because who doesn’t want healthy beautiful hair at any age really?
Disclosure: I have thick hair & lots of it. I credit great genes and my care technique to it. Understand that this is my personal opinion and personal preference on caring for my hair and my type of hair! But I believe if you want long, strong hair, it can be possible by following my routine.
It’s been 4 years since I decided I was done coloring my hair. Best decision I ever made. Because before then, I would spend 4 or more hours at the hair salon and lots & lots of hard earned money. I could own a vacation home (or shanty) on what I spent on my hair back in the day. Lol.
Healthy beautiful hair at 60
My hair care routine consists of monthly oil treatments that I credit to strong & healthy hair. I use very little hair products, and I air dry when possible. I live in the Midwest where temps are cooler longer and there’s less times that I can actually go dryer free.
I wash my hair once a week with a double wash before I condition. One wash of purple shampoo and one wash of regular shampoo, followed by conditioner. Using a wide tooth comb (less breakage—trust me on this), for brushing out all the tangles before drying. I straighten or curl depending on what mood I’m in!
Once a month I saturate my entire hair & head with coconut oil. Using my hands, I rub it gently into my scalp once I have drenched all of my hair. I clip it up and leave it in for about 4-5 hours followed by a shampoo & lite conditioning. Dry & style.
Should I notice that I am losing lots of hair at one time (usually caused by stress or weather effects), I do the following: I combine 1/2 coconut oil & 1/2 castor oil and follow my oil treatment above. This method works beautifully if you are experiencing hair loss and/or if you are wanting to really jump start your hair to a healthy sheen again! I’ve noticed that when I do this treatment my hair seems to grow way faster too. (My hair grows fast on its own already!)
When I was a little girl I was in love with my grandma’s hair. It was long, (past her waist), silver, thin, and straight. She always kept it in a neat little braided bun.
Each night, she would take it down, brush it several times and braid it back up. In the morning she would tuck it into a bun again. The first time I ever saw her take down her beautiful silver bun and brush it out, I was hooked!
I’ve always wanted silver hair past my waist & to braid it into a sweet, old lady bun!
I have way too much hair for a cute little granny bun like hers. I’ll have to settle for messy hair buns!
But someday when I’m done with styling my hair, I might go with a “Willie” style… grow it past my waist and braid it for sure!
