What Are the Best Vitamins for Hair?

As you age, you experience various body changes, including thinner skin, muscle loss, and the absorption of fewer vitamins. Lack of vitamins can affect your bones, skin, and immune system, and may take its toll on your hair and scalp. Unfortunately, there are no magic pills to give you long, flowing hair overnight; however, over time, a nutritious diet supplemented with vitamins can give your body what it needs to produce thicker, voluminous hair.

Can My Hair Benefit from a Scalp Massage? A scalp massage is similar to a massage you might receive for your back, neck, or body. It utilizes gentler pressure to protect your follicles, and, unlike a body massage, you can perform it on yourself.

Can My Hair Benefit from a Scalp Massage?

If you have ever experienced a scalp massage, you know how relaxing it can be. When we get our hair shampooed at the salon, the stylist often gives us a simultaneous massage. A scalp massage is essentially the kneading and rubbing of your head, a profoundly calming process that relaxes your skull and neck muscles.

How to Tell If Your Hair Is Thinning

If you're like many women over 40, you've probably noticed some of the first signs of hair thinning. Maybe your ponytail looks smaller or your stylist has commented on your thinning locks. Or maybe you've just noticed more hair in the shower drain and on your hairbrush.

What’s the Difference Between a Hair Mask and a Conditioner

The roles of hair masks and conditioners can sometimes be unclear. If we use a conditioner, can we forgo a hair mask? In some cases, perhaps.

But as we enter our 40s, our hair starts becoming drier, duller, thinner and more brittle and our scalps start lacking the proper nutrients they need to produce healthy strands—all these factors make it even more important to understand the difference between a hair mask and a conditioner.

When regular conditioning isn’t enough to balance our aging hair biology and address dry, damaged hair, products like hair masks can help boost moisture levels and improve scalp function. Keep reading to learn the difference between a hair mask and a conditioner.

Which Superpower™ Scalp Serum Is Right for You?

When we think about age-related beauty routines, we usually focus on skincare that addresses fine lines, wrinkles, dullness and age spots. We've all seen tons of ads for face creams and serums. But it's super important that we don't forget the aging skin on our scalps. When we neglect our scalps, they can become irritated, unbalanced and unable to support healthy hair. 

Enter scalp serums! 

Like skincare products made for aging skin, scalp serums for mature hair help fight common concerns of aging that happen to our scalp and hair. The main difference is that scalp serums also work hard to support an optimal environment for better hair. The best scalp serums rejuvenate the scalp using natural ingredients to encourage a balanced and toned scalp, nourish follicles and support healthy hair from root to tip.
