Wellness and Aging Hair

I Love Grumpy Cat!!!
It's not easy for me to admit this fact, but I am getting older.  There, I said it, in print even!!!  Age, they say, is just a number.  Well, no matter what "they" say, age is not kind and can be downright mean to a woman.

I've never considered myself to be a vain person, but lately I have noticed that the part in my hair is getting wider, which gives me reason to freak out a little bit.  My Aunt Mary (mama's sister) used to say, "Linda, you'll never have to worry about losing your hair because it is so thick!"  She was a very successful hair stylist in Hollywood, California, and took care of a lot of the old Hollywood actresses from the 1940's and 1950's.  I trusted what Aunt Mary told me and believed her. 

Both my mama and my Aunt Mary have been in heaven for nearly a decade now, and time has kept marching on.  I don't necessarily need a product like Rogaine, but I've been on the lookout for something to keep so much hair from falling out every time I wash and fix my hair.  It's alarming how much hair is left in my hairbrush!

One possible solution is essential oils.  Essential oils can help reduce hair loss.  The Hair Loss Blend consists of:

3 drops thyme essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
3 drops rosemary essential oil
3 drops sage essential oil
3 drops cedarwood
1/8 c. grapeseed oil
1/8 c. jojoba oil

Massage about 1/2 teaspoon into scalp before bed.  Rosemary is a great scalp stimulator.  This is supposed to help minimize hair loss and help with regrowth.

In doing research on this subject, I've found that basically the healthy condition of the hair depends on the intake of sufficient amounts of essential nutrients in the daily diet.  Persons with a tendency to lose hair should take a well-balanced and correct diet, made up of foods which, in combination, should supply all the essential nutrients. 

Foods such as nuts, grains, vegetables and fruits would provide adequate amounts of all the essential nutrients.  Each food group should be represented at all three meals.  A small amount of lean animal protein such as liver is acceptable.  Snacks should consist of either a handful of nuts or a piece of fruit.

So, if I'm reading this correctly, my diet is alright (although you could not pay me to eat liver of any kind).  If it's Iron I need - I do take a multi-vitamin every day and I eat plenty of broccoli which has Iron in it.  

I also read where if you rub the scalp with fingers after washing the hair with cold water it will prevent and treat hair loss.  The scalp should be rubbed vigorously till it starts to tingle with the heat.  It will activate the sebaceous glands and energize the circulation of blood in the affected area, making the hair grow healthy.

Lately I've been trying a new part in my hair.  I hope I don't end up like some of those guys on TV - you know the ones - they keep parting their hair a little further over until they finally have a part clear down to their ear and do the comb-over thing!  I'll buy a wig before I'll do that - guarantee!

Well, I'm blessed to have the opportunity to grow older - many people are denied the privilege.  There are just some challenges along the way and yes, it's part vanity - but I care about what I look like.  I think most people do.  I've never been this old before - and I'll never be this young again!  It's just life and we do the best we can with it!  Just laugh and go on, I suppose!
