One of the most important things to consider is exercise, which cuts the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease and depression.
In a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine of people at or abound retirement age, those of the 3,500 healthy participants who took up exercise were three times more likely to remain healthy over the next eight years than their sedentary peers.
People who took up exercise in their 60s were also less likely to struggle with day-to-day activities such as washing and dressing. Some experts suggest the over 70s should take up sport. Rather than slowing down, people should try to keep up. More and more pensioners are taking up ballet, according to the Royal Academy of Dance. It is putting the phenomenon down to the popularity of TV programs like Strictly Come Dancing. The best thing to do is to keep moving when you are elderly.
I hope my 10 minute daily walk uphill and back counts as enough exercise. I certainly breathe hard and stretch my legs even though I'm supported by the handles of a rollator. Unfortunately, my hips were malformed at birth. Now after 4 operations, I'm having difficulty walking.
Bloomsbury of London says on their site: We are constantly in need of hair whether it being to repair wigs or to make wigs that can help people who suffer from hair loss. They say the bottom 2 - 4" might be useless with dry or split ends so the length needs to be 10" of usable hair.
On another site, I found some tips for keeping your locks healthy before you sell it:
Regular trims will keep broken and split ends away (trimming every six to eight weeks is best, but remember not too much!)
Remember healthy body = healthy hair. Make sure to get your calcium and protein for strong hair
Wash out all product from your hair at night, there are loads of chemicals in them that dry out your hair
Give up your hair dryers, curling irons or flattening irons, hairspray and other styling products now! These dry hair out and cause hair breakage and split ends
Instead of blow drying, towel dry
Braid your hair overnight and in the morning you’ll have lovely waves without any of the damage curling irons will cause
Though you might be tempted, don’t brush your hair more than twice daily and use a high quality vent brush when you do
Oils like rosemary oil, cedar wood oil, juniper berry oil, and lavender oil will help lock-in your hair’s moisture. At night apply the oil, braid your hair and you’ll be moisturising your hair. This way it won’t be breaking while you sleep
Go au natural – Beer and egg whites make excellent hair conditioners.
