Staring in the mirror, I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
There they were and as much as I hate winter was thankful for hats right about now.
Yup, I was seeing grey hairs already cropping up in my roots.
I had to think for a minute as to when I had my hair dyed last.
Sadly I checked my calendar, because I am lucky I remember yesterday with my busy schedule.
What is even sadder is that it was only three weeks ago give or take that I had my hair colored treated.
And here I am already noticing those ugly grey hairs at my root.
Once upon a time ago before saying I do and being called mom, I colored my hair for the fun of it and trying new hair colors out was not a chore.
I love being married with children for many reasons, but not for my hair’s sake.
Because now, as I am inching each day closer and closer to 40 years old, I am having to color my hair more to keep up youthful appearances than for the actual fun of it.
I also can’t go more than 4-5 weeks without getting a touchup, because like I said the grey hairs are sprouting up quicker and faster now more than ever.
All this hair dying to remain younger looking though comes at a cost, both monetarily (my wallet can attest to this), as well as for its damaging properties to my actual hair.
See I am honestly constantly torturing my hair in the name of beauty, because those pesky grey hairs are indeed advancing here at an alarming rate. Thus, the gap between coloring my hair has most definitely gotten shorter and shorter. It is because of this that I am exposing my hair to these types of chemical processes that have stripped my once youthful locks of their natural luster and splendor. Trust me, my hair has also become very course, brittle and dry, too.
However when I was younger, I scoffed at investing in better and more expensive hair care products. Don’t get me wrong, I have always loved learning about and testing new and better beauty and hair products, but again my wallet didn’t always comply.
But in recent times, I have softened to purchasing and using products to help keep my hair stay in better condition as I am all too aware as I shared all the damage hair coloring can do to my hair.
OK, I admit I am not ready to age just yet without putting up a good fight.
So, I now happen to shop at Ulta Beauty and this past year even procured platinum level status as a customer there. Yes, I can’t help, but love shopping for beauty/hair products and Ulta Beauty definitely is my go to store for this and so much more.
During one of my past visits in recent months, I came across Living Proof Timeless Collection, exclusively sold and found only at Ulta Beauty, which has been scientifically proven to combat and even reverse the signs of aging hair.
I couldn’t resist trying it out, even though I was skeptical at first, as I have used many different hair products over the years, but since this collection I have honestly been enjoying the beautiful hair reminiscent of my youth believe it or not by using a regimen of products that cater to my hair’s current needs.
Even before sudsing up and shampooing, I apply the Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment as the first line of defense against all my hair age-related concerns. This treatment also helps to improve strength by reducing hair breakage by up to 85% after the first use. Believe me when I say that after one use, I definitely did see a substantial difference in the amount of breakage in my own hair. Enough that I would definitely recommend, if you are experiencing similar issues.
By the way, after the pre-shampoo treatment, I also use the Timeless Shampoo and then Conditioner, as well to help further treat my hair, which has afforded me visibly beautiful, ageless hair, add extra body, all while re-texturing my dry, wiry, brittle hair, as well as keep my color vibrant & truer, longer.
Last, but not least, after my hair is washed and conditioned, I have taken to putting in Timeless Plumping Mousse even before styling, which not only makes it look fuller, but controls the unmanageable hair strands and also helps to keep it from breaking when I dry and straighten my hair.
Honestly, these four products are a godsend that has left my hair looking younger and most definitely more manageable, as well as allowing me to color my hair less often, as well.
Anything that makes styling my hair easier is a win-win in my book.
Is your hair aging right before your very eyes?
