When I was younger, I didn’t pay much attention to hair quality or the different types of hair. I knew some people had longer or shorter hair; there were various shades of blonde, brunette, or black, and some people just didn’t have much. Especially older men. But beyond that, to me, hair was just hair.
It wasn’t really until I was in college that I began to realize just how much variation there is. This aha moment came because my roommate had the thickest, fullest hair I’d ever seen. My insignificant little ponytail would pale in comparison to hers. She wore her hair short – in more of a lob cut – and the hairstyles she could create were impressive. Of course, much of that was her natural skill, but the hair she had to work with allowed her to really explore creative options.
Then there was me. I had a head full of thin, fine hair that seemed lifeless in comparison. And you won’t be surprised to hear that it didn’t magically evolve throughout my life.
As we get older, our hair goes through a natural process of aging that may result in various hair issues like thinning, breakage, and increasing levels of frizz. Some of these are caused by our environment or lifestyle choices, but some are brought on by genetics or hormones. This can be especially taxing on women who are going through menopause.
According to WebMD, “Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her monthly menstrual cycle stops. When this happens, it lowers the production of estrogen and progesterone. These hormones help hair grow faster and stay on the head for longer periods of time. When there’s less of the hormone, there is less hair.”
I’d like to have thicker, fuller hair, and I’d love to make my hair quality last against the inevitable changes that happen as I get older. So, I’ve tried various thickening shampoos, conditioners, and other products with varying levels of success. I find that my nutrition and supplement intake can help as well.
But one thing that’s definitely made the biggest difference is how I treat my hair, including my daily routine and the tools and products I use. The addition of some products has improved my hair quality by providing nutrients or preventing damage. On the flip side, eliminating some products that are damaging my hair is equally important, and even simple lifestyle changes can make a huge difference.
A few months back, I wrote about adding a Zuvi Halo hairdryer to my hair care arsenal. At the time, I’d seen a difference in how my hair looked after getting ready in the morning. I especially noticed a difference after actually drying my hair. I could use just a round brush and the dryer and skip the straightener or curling iron step. Because of the decrease in heated tools, my hair was healthier and shinier than ever.
Fast forward to today. The difference is increasingly apparent, and I’ve streamlined my hair prep process even more. I still use a quality shampoo and conditioner (never underestimate the value of good products), and then I towel dry my hair to remove all the excess water. I’ve gotten to where I like to use a dime-sized dollop of BioSilk leave-in conditioner to give my hair a little more shine and protection from the daily elements. Plus, I like to take really hot showers (which I realize are a no-no when it comes to keeping moist skin and hair, but I just love them too much to let them go), so the extra conditioning treatment helps counteract that.
With the lower drying temperatures, you’ll find a process that’s gentler on your hair. Zuvi Halo does not just dry your hair fast at cooler temperatures; it also keeps your hair hydrated. This is crucial for hair health and strength, especially when it comes to thinning hair.
The most significant difference is due to the Zuvi Halo because when I started using it, I stopped baking my hair. That’s because traditional hair dryers often use high heat for fast drying and styling, which can damage the hair cuticle and cause it to become dry and brittle. With the Zuvi Halo hair dryer, you can enjoy a gentler hair-drying experience without sacrificing drying speed because it was designed for people who care more about hair health. You get less hair breakage with much less heat.
With Zuvi Halo, I’ve cut down on the time it takes to get ready every day because I removed several steps from the process. Gone are the days of curling irons and straighteners; in their place is a head of shiny, healthy hair. I personally prefer to use the ‘Style’ setting on the blow dryer because it allows me to add a little curl and body to my hair with just the brush and dryer working together. I’ve also found I have a lot less frizz or flyaways because I removed the heat from the styling process. My hair looks better than ever, and I’m loving every minute of my life with Zuvi Halo.
