So you’ve just spotted some uninvited grey strands poking out from the depths of your glossy glory, oh the horror, surely this means a Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep – Devil Wears Prada) look is on the horizon. The truth is most of us would equate ageing hair with those pesky ageing greys, however the truth is just like the skin and our body, hair experiences the effects of ageing in various ways. And in preserving all things youthful it’s important to be clued in as to how to spot and then treat those signs effectively, retaining your majestic mane in the process. So from treating thinning hair and hair loss to combating pesky grey patches, they are a number of options available to you so grab those ageing strands by the follicle and listen in.
Anti-ageing hair trick #1: cover the greys
When the greys arrive, they rarely arrive alone! One of the more obvious signs of ageing hair, they are prone to random acts of unkindness appearing on any head at will, regardless of age. According to some old wives, plucking a grey will encourage three more to sprout up in its place (and we don’t want that) but there are effective and far less painful ways to banish them.

Anti-ageing hair trick #2: make it big and beautiful
Flat, frumpy and limp hair is a fair indication that your mane isn’t as big and bountiful as it could be. From the media to social perceptions, to every beauty bible a thick, lustrous man is often equated with beauty and youth, so if you’ve found a lack of volume and density is ageing your hair, there are a number of products and treatments created to increase thickness and encourage healthy regrowth.

Anti-ageing hair trick #3: extra texture please
Sporting a head full of dry, brittle locks is an obvious giveaway that you’re ageing hair has suffered from a little neglect over the years. Whether it’s from your own hand, environmental aggressors or the effects of chemical treatments and colouring, vibrant strong hair equals youth, so let’s banish those dry, coarse hairs so often associated with getting older and pamper those thirsty tired locks with a moisturising hair bath.

Anti-ageing hair trick #4: put an end to hair loss
The most obvious sign of ageing for both men and women is hair loss. Whether continually breaking or falling, hair often becomes weak and brittle and simply falls from the root. Whether it’s a genetic or medical condition, hair loss can be a traumatic experience and play an important part in a loss of self-image, so Beautyfeature.ie understands the need for real results from hair loss treatments that deliver visible improvements that ensurea healthier, stronger, regenerated hair.
