Anti-Aging Hair Care: Alterna Professional Haircare

What expectations can people have for their hair as they get older?

As we age, hair becomes more dry, brittle, fine, and looses its elasticity, making it prone to breakage.

Will we all end up with course, gray hair?

Everyone is different, so everyone's hair will age differently. However, most people will notice a change in their hair as they age. Hair usually becomes more fine as it ages, and most people notice some thinning, even those with very thick, coarse hair.

How can hair care products help our hair's natural aging process?

Hair care formulas have become very advanced and are now able to reverse the signs of aging, helping us retrieve that youthful healthy look we all crave. For example, a product from Alterna's exclusive anti-aging hair care line is Age Control Complex. It uses Vitamin C, Cytokines, and pure Caviar Extract to fight the signs of aging.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps prevent damage to the hair before it can start, Cytokines are active organic compounds which regenerate and revitalizes cellular turnover, and Caviar Extract is one of the world's richest sources of Omega 3 fatty acids, which work together to infuse the hair and scalp with moisture, shine, and elasticity.

Why did Alterna consider it important to develop an anti-aging hair care line?

Aging is something that everyone experiences. We are so concerned with fighting the signs of aging everywhere else in our lives -- our skin, our weight, our lifestyle -- why should hair be left out? This was an untapped market when Alterna launched the Caviar Anti-Aging range, so Alterna is really the pioneer of anti-aging hair care.

What can products such as Alterna's Caviar Anti-Aging collection do for someone in their 50s and 60s?

Quite simply, it can give them the hair they had as teenagers -- shiny, bouncy, and ready to take on any chemical services or styling.

How much does nutrition affect the condition of our hair, and what would you recommend to improve hair from that standpoint?

Nutrition hugely affects hair's health. You should always maintain a healthy diet for healthy keratin formation. Our anti-aging line also has amazing ingredients and a unique delivery system, so whatever you don't get through nutrition will be delivered to your hair through these products.

What is a simple hair care tip that you find most people don't know?

Shampooing daily is okay when you're using quality products. Conditioning daily is very beneficial and can improve the quality of the hair.
