I don’t know about you ladies, but I am rarely happy with my hair. Now it is dry, dry, dry and because it is naturally curly – FRIZZ BOMB! I always walk a little more confidently when I believe my haircut looks good. Is this just me, or do you feel the same way? Can you comment below? I’d love to hear about your HAIR NIGHTMARE or all about your HAIR CARE. Other women would too!

How About Some Natural Products for Taking Special Care?

Very shortly, I am going to be testing a product and showing you the results right here. I was researching products (natural) and came across Madison Reed. Everything looks great and they’re going to send me some of their color-reviving gloss to try. I’m going to do a before and after so you can see. STAY TUNED!

A Couple of Things That Affect Your Hair As You Age

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that your hair changes as you age. Usually, after your 40th birthday it starts behaving badly. hairThe color changes…pigment cells in the follicles die, reducing melanin and leaving behind transparent colors like gray, silver and white.

The density changes. Many women experience thinning and some have significant hair loss. This has more to do with genes than anything. The decrease in estrogen production contributes to density loss also.

Shine and texture surely change and personally, that is the area I am looking at right now. I came upon Madison Reed and think I’ll give it a try. Like I said, I am going to do a before and after picture when I receive their products. I color my hair with a natural dye and the product I will be sampling from them rejuvenates the color and gives it a gloss. I hope it’s a success as I need all the help I can get! Stay tuned for the results…

    Hi Robin, as a 49 year old, I’m so glad I found your blog! I definitely noticed my auburn hair getting darker over the last 10 years, and now I’m finding some (yikes!) grey hairs! For my frizzy hair, I rely on anti frizz products with silicones; they work wonders for smoothing and shine. I also try to not wash my hair overly often, and I’m careful with heat styling.

      Hi Laurie! These years in a woman’s life certainly opens up a whole new world of challenges! Thanks for sharing some of things you do to give your hair a little TLC. I am dealing with dryness mostly, and it’s funny that you mentioned heat styling. I just read how drying your hair with high heat damages it at this stage of the game. I think I’ve found at least part of my problem! Thanks for stopping by Laurie…

    Hi Robin,
    Seeing as how I just turned the big Four Oh I’m very interested in hair care and maintenance. And, yeah, I’m already experiencing a decrease in pigmentation…I have a silver streak of hair by my left ear. And, it seems that I lose more hair when I shampoo. Looking forward to your review of the Madison Reed product. I’m willing to pay a little more than I did 15 years ago for a good product.

      I know what you mean about spending for quality. I’m really working at taking care of the dryness. I’ve never had a problem until recently, and I’m hoping the natural products will help out. I’m not looking forward to putting my face on the page, 🙂 but Shannon at Madison Reed was pretty confident I would be happy with the results. Thanks for commenting Alyssa. Take Care!

    This sounds like a good idea. All for natural products. I’ve also been taking a whole food supplement that actually causes the hair to grow in thicker. I’m glad to hear there is a natural product that improves texture and color. I’d be interested to hear how your Madison Reed test works out !

      Me too! I can’t wait t receive the products. It’s crazy what happens to your hair as you age! Actually, a lot of things are crazy 🙂 Anyway, wanting to age as gracefully as possible and desiring to help others do the same! Thanks for stopping by Mike!
