Hair - - Editor's Letter -

Time, they say, waits for no one. And it def­i­nitely doesn’t mete out a bet­ter treat­ment to our hair. Hair, too, falls within ‘it’s bend­ing sickle’s com­pass,’ to put it in the words of the Bard him­self. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t man­age the age­ing process. Our ex­perts Dr Apoorva Shah, Tri­chol­o­gist and Founder, Rich­feel, and Mel­roy Dick­son, Na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion Man­ager, Ma­trix In­dia, help you with some handy tips.

Change in hair colour or grey­ing is the first symp­tom of age­ing­hair, cou­pled with loss of shine, elas­tic­ity and some­times thin­ning.Hair also tends to be­come limp and frag­ile.

If grey­ing oc­curs be­fore you hit your 30s, it is termed as ‘pre­ma­ture grey­ing’ and can be at­trib­uted to iron de­fi­ciency, scalp prob­lems, stress, thy­roid or re­ac­tion to­wards chem­i­cal treat­ments. Post 30, it is the be­gin­ning of the age­ing process. If you are al­ready theer, the fol­low­ing ad­vice is just for you.
