But, after all, how to identify the differences between whether the hair is aged or just damaged?
The main particularity is in the type of aging. While aging happens due to natural causes, damaged hair is characterized by degrading due to external factors such as chemical changes, smoking, alcoholism, and other reasons.
Damaged hair experiences changes in the shaft and even split ends, such as dullness and brittleness. Generally, such aspects result from damage caused externally, such as excessive use of a dryer, flat iron, sun exposure, chemical treatments and other manipulations.
On the other hand, hair starts to age and lose moisture naturally — and the same happens to the skin after 40 years. When this happens, the hair becomes more fragile and loses density, while growth becomes unbalanced. All this happens even without you taking care since it is a natural process.
