Hair must always be cut to be kept fresh, with the help of getting rid of the dead/ split ends.
Everyone's scalp produces oil, but some hair look greasier than others. Why? Each hair on the human body absorbs sebum, a natural oil that imparts moisture, and in turn shine. However, if the scalp produces toomuch oil, by days end, hair can look like a greasy mess. People with fine, light hair have more strands than those with course, dark hair- hence, their hair has a tendency to become more oily. Other factors include puberty(hormones can increase sebum), genetics, and the environment( heat, humidity, etc.), also your diet plays a roll.

Traditional & side-swept - The traditional side- swept fringe starts above the eyebrow and gradually becomes longer. When directed to the side, it's soft and feminine.
Waves - Curly hair should never be brushed! Brushes will tear or stretch fragile strands and on dry hair, brushing will separate and diffuse curls, creating frizz. Do not over handle curly hair as touching curls as they dry disturbs the natural pattern and creates unwanted volume and flyaway.
Shampooing curly hair isn't necessary every day. For people with loose waves, wash your hair 2 to 3 times per week, for people with tight curls, wash hair 1 to 2 times per week, for people with kinky curls only once per week is enough.
It's very important to condition curly hair. It provides protection against heat- styling tools, sun damage and product build-up. Leave 25% of the conditioner on the ends of the hair for extra protection and detangling.
On days that you do not shampoo, rinse the hair with warm water and use a leave-in-conditioner, which adds moisture and vitamins to wet or dry curls and also fight frizz.
Understated color paired with the right haircut can make a powerful statement!
Split ends - aka "trichopitlosis", occur because of hair fiber damage. When hair is healthy, cuticles lie flat and reflect light, granting shiny, healthy-looking locks. But when cuticles are damaged, they crack and don't reflect as much light. Meanwhile, beneath the hair's outer layer, the cortex's proteins unravel and split when the protective cuticle layer is compromised. thus, hair's entire structure becomes damaged. The major contributors to split ends are harsh products, excessive styling aid use, chemical treatments and environmental conditions. So remember: Only use nourishing pro-beauty products well and wisely!!
So to keep split ends at bay you should keep your hair trimmed to minimize breakage, which can make hair look thinner on the ends.
You should also eat a well balanced diet with omega-3's and protein to promote healthier, less brittle hair that won't be prone to breakage.
In your 20's you should protect your hair from over-styling and environmental stress with products that help prevent moisture loss and frizz.

In your 40's your probably already coloring you hair, which can break and dehydrate the hair, so after every color treatment it's a great idea to have a conditioning treatment for the hair and scalp.
In your 50's hormonal changes also trigger the hair's diameter to shrink even further, causing hair to thin out and look less full. Hair also becomes dry and brittle due to lack of sebum production in the scalp. a gentle, nightly scalp massage with a moisturizing serum to hydrate and nourish the scalp and help improve circulation, which promotes hair to grow fuller and stronger.
In your 60's hair will likely continue to thin and may even fall out. it's important to keep washing and styling to a minimum.
