Are You Anti-Ageing Your Hair?
Posted by Ruby Khatun in Hair
I’m fed up of Buzzfeed posting another nostalgia list, because it makes me feel really old. Last week I thought about anti-ageing my neck and now I need 3 anti-ageing creams; for my face, hands, and neck, because gravity is working against me (as John Mayer would sing). Talking of John Mayer I no longer have dreams of him as my prom date but nightmares about poor Ebay feedback. I am starting to loose my hearing, my eyesight is not what it once was, and I have no idea what music is in the charts. I have started leaving passive-aggressive post-it notes on the fridge. I have forgotten what I was even writing about because one of the cliché consequences of getting old is memoir responses.
Today I bring you anti-ageing your hair. When should you start to think about-anti-ageing your hair? Sure we don’t get wrinkles in our hair but as we get older our hair becomes dull and lifeless.
