These Hair Mistakes Might Be Aging You

7. Not Using The Right Shampoo
Whether you color your hair or are now completely silver, using the right shampoo absolutely matters. As we age, our hair takes on a different texture, and you shouldn't be using the same shampoo you did in your 30s or 40s. 

There are a lot of factors to keep in mind when choosing your shampoo. Maturing hair needs more moisture as it becomes naturally drier, and it also needs volume as it begins to thin.

But then there is also color to keep in mind. If you color your hair, you need to get a shampoo that keeps your hair vibrant longer. For example, blondes need a purple shampoo to keep from going dull. Or if you have silver or gray hair, you might notice that it can take on a yellow tinge after a while. To combat that yellowing, you need a shampoo that neutralizes any of the brassiness and gets rid of the yellow tones. Luckily, there are tons of shampoos for silver hair on the market, like this Blue Malva Shampoo from Aveda.
