Here's What they Left Out of the New York Times Article on How to Wash Your Hair

It may be true that keeping lush young hair for years to come depends on how you treat your hair. The simplest mistakes of both processing and washing can damage hair, damage the hair follicles, and lead to hair loss. This New York Times on April 27th, 2017 ran an article about proper use of shampoos, conditioners and emphasized a gentle technique for drying that is Moroccan. Here are the anti-aging hair tips they left out:

1. Start with a scalp check, many of us remember to get spot checks for moles or pigment, but be sure a medical professional evaluates the scalp. Medical conditions of the scalp will be treated differently.
2. Use sun protection for your hair and scalp. Especially protect your part. Powdered mineral make-up may work for some, for health and anti-aging I recommend products with anti-aging in them as well. Skin Medica TDR at Hada Cosmetic Medicine is one of my favorites.
3. Circulation is the key to keeping all tissues healthy, so don't forget your scalp massage if you are going to less frequently wash your hair
4. Using the pre-wash oil trick may work for some, but for those with difficult skin conditions any neck or shoulder contact can lead to increased breakouts.
5. Wash your hair if you have visited a smoker
y or toxic environment, especially around tobacco smoke, smells are soaked up by hair.
6. Toxins do accumulate in the hair follicles over time. Testing the hair sounds like a popular way to find out your body toxins, but you can be tested for toxin exposure, usually through urine, which is what they suggest at Women's Health Practice.
7. Be mindful of your make-up, especially for those experiencing hair loss at the hair line, you need to think organic, such as Jane Iredale sold at Hada Cosmetic Medicine. And consider make up exposure to hair line when deciding whether to skip a re-wash.
8. Get the right swim cap, I suggest silicone, many companies make them. And figure out the right technique for putting on your cap and goggles, so that hair tugging is minimized.
9. Eat well, your nutrition will shine through in your hair.
10. Hydrate well, for some a bad hair day begins as a 'bad scalp day.'
