4 Hair mistakes that make you look older

Few of us care to admit it but we often choose hairstyles and hair colour ideas that make us look younger. Whether you’re choosing a silver hair dye to keep up with the trends or a sleek new cut to freshen up your features, there are several ways to stay youthful. There are however a few ways that we unintentionally sabotage our look with mistakes that leave us looking worse for wear.

Whilst we normally focus on hair colour trends for 2018 and beyond, we like to draw attention to some of the pitfalls of hair care. Are you guilty of any of these hair mistakes? It’s okay if you are and it’s not too late to change things. How many will you be guilty of? Keep reading to find out.

1. You neglect those colour touch-ups

Whether you choose a salon or prefer to do it yourself, skipping touch-ups is a sure way to make you look older. This is because your colour becomes dull and your regrowth starts to show. It’s especially true if you’re struggling to keep the dreaded greys at bay. A great way to counteract this is a silver hair dye. It’s trending right now and it will help your greys blend right in. An amazing option is our Classic Pearl from the Renew Perfect Colour range.A person wearing a white shirt and black hair

 

2. You abuse the heat

Dry brittle hair can really age you, so it’s no surprise that you’re doing yourself a major injustice by using too much heat when you style your hair. Many of us rely on our hairdryers and flat irons to create our daily looks. This means a lot of heat that can really damage hair. To keep your tresses and you looking youthful, you should be mindful of how much heat you’re using each day. If you’re getting a new flat iron, choose one with a temperature gauge that you can set to a specific temperature to suit your hair type.

3. Believing that you should go shorter

It’s a common misconception that as you get older, your hair should go shorter. Society has created this idea that age equals bobs and pixie cuts. This is 2018 and it’s no longer the case. If you feel like you’d love a shorter cut, go for it. Don’t give in to this because you think it’s what you ought to do. There are no rules to hair length according to how long you’ve been alive. Whew. For the record, longer hair softens the face, keeping a more youthful appearance. It’s also easier to get a natural result when you colour your hair if your hair is longer.A person posing for the camera

4. Neglecting the conditioner

It’s no secret that dry hair can age you. If you colour your hair, use heat styling tools and spend time in the sun, your hair will need to condition your hair regularly. We suggest getting a great conditioner that you can use. Luckily, our Renew hair dyes come with Aloe and Milk Protein conditioner to help lock in your colour and shine when you need it most.
