This post is for my sassy silver foxes; the women that email us and say “hey what about women of a certain age?, do you have any tips for us” If you are over 50 then you have probably lived a pretty eclectic life; you are probably the woman we could sit and talk to for hours because your experience is absolutely priceless.
When you are a woman of a certain age, you might decide, oh what they hell, I’m going to just let this gray hair shine through, I am much too busy for the fuss.
We have realized that the way our moms or grandmothers think about their natural hair is much different from our daughters at 17 or even us at 30. We also know that they way they approach hair care and styling might be much different as well.
So we thought about some of the questions an older lady might have about her natural hair, you know some of the things we think is perfectly fine as you get older and some of the things you shouldn’t even worry about.
The goal is to still have fun even at your age, so here are 10 things and older woman should know about her natural hair:
1. Embrace your natural hair texture
Ladies, if you have been relaxing most of your life we can understand it being part of your life but when you get to a certain age, embracing your natural hair is probably a great if not needed chapter.
We do not know for sure but your hair might feel finer than it used to, you probably can’t even deal with the stress of relaxing on a schedule, now is the time to see what your hair can really do by getting to know the texture of your hair and fully embracing it. Embracing your texture might be the best thing you could ever do especially if you want more of a minimalist lifestyle.
2. You can get highlights
Girl, highlights are not just for 18 year olds, as a matter fact a little color adds a bit of dimension to your hair. You do not have to go too crazy just a little something to give your hair a bit of pizazz.
Often highlights are considered a style for a younger woman, but that is not always true, highlights make things more interesting and brings out features in your face.
3. Keep that infamous gray if you want to
Ladies back in the day a woman would color her gray hair so much you would wonder if they grayed at all. These days we have been noticing a trend where women are not only deciding to leave the gray alone, some woman are actually coloring their hair gray. Now this is all a matter of preference, if a box of color makes you feel good, then by all means go for it.
But what we are saying is gray is sexy, so if you are thinking about letting it shine through, we have your back 1000%
