As much as I would like to tell Father Time to let Sybil (my hair) and I just be great, I realize that is no longer an option. We constantly torture our hair in the name of beauty. As those pesky greys advance at an alarming rate, the gap between coloring our hair gets shorter and shorter and we find ourselves exposing our hair to chemical processes that strip our locks of their natural luster and splendor. We can enjoy the beautiful hair reminiscent of our youth, and protect our investment in it, too, using a regimen of products that cater to our hair’s current needs.
I’ve been coloring my hair for so many years that I didn’t realize how much grey hair I had until I started letting some of my purple hair grow out. Lawd!!! I had no clue all of that was hiding up underneath there. And I promise you as I get older, those hairs grow at a rate that is quite possibly faster than the speed of light…seriously!
Since I can’t reverse time or slow down the aging process, I can at least use products on my hair that will help combat some of the stress I put on my tresses. Available only at Ulta Beauty, the Living Proof Timeless Collection includes not only shampoo, conditioner and plumping mousse but it includes a pre-shampoo treatment as well. All of my naturals can definitely relate to a pre-poo! Even those with relaxed, naturally straight or multi-ethnic hair will love using a pre-treatment shampoo! I also love that it’s formulated specifically for color treated hair!
I’m also always on the lookout for a styling product when I want to do a rod set on my hair. I’ve tried mousse before and it was a total fail. This time it turned out great! My hair wasn’t supper hard and crunchy and the purple really pops too!
The Living Proof Timeless Collection is available ONLY at Ulta Beauty across the nation. Use a store locator to find one near you and pick up your own Living Proof Timeless Collection to bring life back to your hair! Also find Ulta Beauty on Facebook and Twitter.
How has your hair changed as you’ve gotten older?
When you wash your hair, massage your scalp with your fingertips and gently pull the shampoo through your hair, rather than rubbing it vigorously.
I even massage my scalp nightly with Jamaican castor oil. Like you said, always better to massage then rub vigorously.
