Most men over 50 do not put any efforts into caring for their skin or hair. That needs to change! Men, you need to understand that the more efforts you put into it, the younger you’ll look. It’s a win-win! You will look young and feel even younger! Not caring for your hair might have worked when you were younger. But when you cross that half-century mark, you have to understand that your hair is not as strong as it used to be. Also, you will have to take extra care. So here are a few things you can try to make sure your hair is on point!
Understand your hair type
You must know your hair type! Ideally, you should figure out your hair type in your younger years but even if you do it now, it’s okay. Understanding your hair type is important to ensure proper care. Put some efforts into understanding whether your hair is thin, frizzy, curly, wavy, or whether it has changed over time. This will be the foundation of a good haircare routine.
Keep a short comb with you at all times
‘What?! How is that particularly helpful for men over 50?!” Well, since your hair is more vulnerable to damage, you cannot experiment with too many hair styling products. It will only be more harmful than good. A tiny amount is fine. A comb will help you maintain your hair throughout the day and will give a natural shine.
Accept hair loss
Almost every man over 50 will go through hair loss, at least some thinning hair on the front i.e. a receding hairline. Experts may or may not find a cure for baldness and if they do, it may or may not work for you. So for now, your best bet is to accept your hair loss and move around it instead of against it. Look for haircuts and styles that will go well with your problem, not those that will only make it look worse.

Use different products for different needs
Relying on one shampoo or soap is the worst thing you can do to your hair as you’ll grow older. Once you get to your 50’s your hair will lose its strength and essential oils. So the shampoo that worked for you in your 30’s won’t necessarily work for you now. In fact, it might make things worse! You will have to move towards better, specialised shampoos, conditioners, serums and oils.
Vitamin supplements are your best buddies
Your hair needs certain nutrients such as keratin, biotin and vitamins. While you may get enough proteins from your diet, you might have to rely on supplements for vitamins. So try to invest in good vitamin tablets, drinks or gummies. They will ensure a good supply and your hair will thank you for it.
Embrace the greys!
Grey hair is normal, especially if you are over 50. While dyes give your hair a colour that you want, they have chemicals. These chemicals can damage your precious hair strands and will only make matters worse. So embrace your greys and flaunt them. Give your natural grey hair some shine by using serums or oils.
