Dealing with this problem is relatively easy. For starters look to the inside by evaluating your eating habits. Make sure you are
getting a healthy diet, rich in anti-oxidant foods and try to focus on calcium rich foods and foods containing vitamins A, E and C
as well as Omega-3 Fatty Acids. You should also make sure to drink at least 64 ounces of water a day.
This, in addition to using a gentle shampoo and moisture-rich conditioner, will make your hair more manageable and help you keep it healthy inside and out.
Because your hair changes its condition as you age, if you have always colored AND permed your hair, you may want to consider losing
one of those processes. These chemical services can become increasingly hard on the hair as we age. For most women, the choice will
be to sacrifice perms in favor of color, and on a positive note, natural styling with a good cut and simple, soft color is much more
youthful than the heavily styled looks inherent in most perm styles.
You also need to look carefully at your styling products. Avoid products containing alcohol and which are prone to create build-up
on the hair. Soft styling is much preferred over the stiff, structured looks of our younger days, and alcohol-free products donít
dry out the hair the way those with alcohol can.
