Doctor Oz did a fabulous home remedies segment on how old your hair is and how to repair your damaged hair with all natural home remedies! Both your lifestyle and genetics can make your hair older than your actual, physical age.
One woman on Dr. Oz’s show was 58, but her hair was 68 years old. Another woman was 53 years old, but her hair was 65 years old. Dr. Oz is 49 years old and his hair’s age is 51 (though I think his hair looks fabulous!!!)… so what are some of the things that these women are doing to make their hair age faster?
What Makes Your Hair Age Faster?
Stress can age your hair faster, because stress increases your testosterone level. Higher testosterone levels makes your hair thin and testosterone causes your head to produce less hair.
3. Hair Styling Products
How you style your hair (chemicals, relaxers, hair dyes, etc.) all poke holes into your hair shaft and makes it harder for your hair to hold onto the moisture that it needs. So your hair strands get shingles that look frayed and not aligned, unlike healthy hair.
4. Your Diet
If you skip meals, eat a low protein diet, or do not have enough water in your diet, then your hair will suffer and age faster.
Dr. Oz’s Healthy Hair Home Remedies & Tips:
1. Eat Salmon & Omega 3’s
Salmon is full of Omega 3’s which makes your hair have lots of lustre. At the very minimum, take Omega 3 Fish Oil Softgels
2. Banana Hair Mask
Dr. Oz sent his top scientists to find the best home solution for damaged hair, and you know what they found? A smooth puree of mashed bananas makes the best hair mask… just apply the mashed bananas, relax for 15 minutes, and your damaged hair will get repaired and soothed! Other more delicious sounding hair masks that used bananas include a Chocolate Banana Hair Mask or try these other Banana Home Remedies!
