Your Hair is Your Crown, Wear it Well
“If You Can Keep Your Head When All About You Are Losing Theirs …” *

Whether you’re blessed with a thick, full head of hair or the most sparse bits of ‘bum fluff’, there are ways to make the most of your locks. Let’s make every day is a ‘good hair’ day and bad hair days a distant memory.
When you’re living your best life, your hair just has to shape up and keep up.
You know how bad hair – lifeless, lank hair or pube-type thick curlies or tufts of hair that barely cover your scalp – can make you feel really down?
But don’t despair, there are easy, stress-free ways to make the most of what you have.
And modern technology is no slouch in the hair department either. Real human and fake hair pieces, clips-ons, extensions, wiglets and wigs have come a long way from Grandma’s day. You’ll be surprised at the styles, colours, ranges and options available. (We’re hoping to bring you a special offer on a great family-run wig supplier soon!)

First off, try a haircut. No quicker way of getting your hair to look and feel healthy.
Pay the money and get a reputable hairdresser to do a professional cut . For something different, why not change up the colour – or go natural – or try out some highlights or lowlights.
The colour palettes are almost limitless today – a good colourist can advise you on tones that will lift your skin tones. Go on, experiment.
A fresh cut ‘n colour is guaranteed to make you feel great. Here are 60 styles for over 60s from the pro’s to get your ideas flowing …
Or, if you’re budget-conscious, invest in a good pair of hairdressing scissors and start searching for great tips on YouTube. (Scroll down for a ‘how to’ video below).
There’s an unbelievable selection of good-looking human hair and false hairpieces, wigs and wiglets out there.
You can even buy real human false eyelashes and eyebrows – that was news to me.
There’ll be a perfect match for you – realistic, comfortable, light and easy to wash and wear.
Prices range from around £9 to over £1000 so you’ll find something to suit your looks and your budget.
There are plenty wholesome, non-fussy and super recipes about for giving your hair a deep, nourishing treatment.
Many of the ingredients can be found right there in your kitchen.
DIY Nourishing Conditioner
This quick ‘n easy moisturising treatment will make your hair more manageable, softer and healthier in just half an hour. Whatever your hair type.
1 cup of plain yoghurt (Greek is ideal)
2 tbsp raw honey
4 tbsp coconut oil
2 Vitamin E soft-gel capsules or about 10-15 drops of pure Vitamin E oil
Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl until well blended.
Apply to dry hair and work the mixture gently into your scalp, making sure to cover your hair from roots to tips. Wrap your head in an old towel or shower cap and leave on for at least 30 minutes.
Once the time has passed, rinse it out in warm water and shampoo as usual.
Conditioner is optional but we’d always recommended using it for mature hair.
It’s a fact that older hair needs extra moisture.
Now doesn’t that feel good?
