Natural Beauty Tips for Women Over 50


4 Natural Beauty Tips for Healthy Hair

There is no cure for gray hair. You can color it, though, if you want a younger look. Use these tips for healthy, youthful looking hair.

  1. Try highlighting. A few strands of color painted throughout your hair can subtly hide gray hairs, especially if your natural hair color is fairly light.
  2. Think carefully about full-blown color. Women who want a solid, darker color should realize it's going to require regular maintenance as the color grows out. If you don't want a salon appointment every six to eight weeks, solid colors are not for you.
  3. Try a new style. Wear your hair any way you want. Forget those old "rules" about not having long hair after a certain age. Your hairstyle should be what you prefer, no matter what your age.
  4. Fix thinning hair. A shorter cut gives more volume to thinning hair. Color is also good for giving volume to fine, limp hair. Sometimes the right product, like a volumizing shampoo, can solve the problem. Hair extensions can also help give a boost to thinning hair.

Your favorite natural beauty tip may be as simple as wearing a radiant smile. Or it may mean using a few products or treatments along the way. Whatever your choice, taking care of yourself is the most beautiful thing of all.
