Tips For Healthier Aging Hair

Tips For Healthier Aging Hair

As a woman over 50, I see and feel my body changing each and every day. While I’m embracing my life, finding products to help me with some of my new concerns is important to me. One of the physical shifts I’ve least expected thus far has been my hair. No, not the gray hair we all know is coming, but the fragility and texture changes. I’ve been using Hair Biology products lately, which are specifically made for aging hair, and have genuinely noticed a positive difference in the way my hair looks and feels. Hair Biology is a brand that believes in the power of celebrating age and the experience that comes with it.

Each product they offer has been formulated and designed to work with your unique hair biology as you age. Like your skin, hair shows signs of aging, too. The most common signs of aging when it comes to our hair include lack of color, thinning, dryness, and overall hair quality.

Keep scrolling to see what Hair Biology has done for me and tips for healthier aging hair.

Thank you, Hair Biology, for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Tips For Healthier Aging Hair


Nourish it

Be sure to include the right supplements such as collagen and a specialized hair supplement to your routine to combat changing hormones that can cause hair loss. A diet rich in protein and fish oil will also help keep your hair healthy. Hair Biology’s Soft & Hydrated collection is designed to meet the changing needs of your hair with a moisturizing shampoo and moisturizing conditioner. The collection is infused with biotin, which improves the body’s keratin infrastructure and supports strong, healthy hair growth.

The hair serum in this line contains Argan Oil, which is packed with antioxidants and is known to increase hair’s elasticity and restore shine. I highly suggest adding it to your routine! I use mine every day to add weightless shine and revive my bounce. In addition, the collection is free of parabens and dyes.

Add Shine 

As I mentioned above, adding products like Hair Biology’s Argan oil can make all the difference in how your hair looks and feels! The soft & hydrated hair serum absorbs weightlessly while it nourishes to strengthen against damage; it will add shine, along with smoothing your ends and unruly grays.

Get Regular Hair Trims

It might seem counterproductive if you’re trying to grow your hair out, however keeping your ends healthy will promote hair growth. My hair grows faster when I get “health cuts” for maintenance! I get mine trimmed every ten weeks.

Add Volume

My hair changed texture as the grays and changing hormones started to take over. I went through a stage where my hair was flat and had zero volume, and it was not fun! I, unfortunately, had to get my driver’s license picture during this stage…Thankfully I was able to regain my fullness, and yes, I waited in the DMV line to retake the picture, haha!

If you are experiencing a lack of volume in your hair, Hair Biology has you covered! The Full and Vibrant Collection is designed to help with volume and add thickness to your hair. This collection is infused with biotin, which is known to improve the body’s keratin infrastructure and support strong, healthy hair growth.

The cherry on top of this collection is the hair thickening treatment that instantly thickens each strand and fights breakage for fuller-looking hair. The treatment benefits are progressive: The more you use it, the thicker your hair.

Add Moisture Regularly

I use a deep conditioning hair mask at least once a week. I have used several over the years, and I am genuinely impressed with how my hair feels and looks after using Hair Biology’s color sealing mask. In addition to leaving my hair hydrated and smooth, this mask has worked wonders to protect my color-treated hair. I color my roots every four weeks, so this formula helps keep my color vibrant. I’m also equally impressed with the color brilliance shampoo and conditioner I’m using. The sulfate-free Brilliance Shampoo gently cleanses without stripping to protect against damage and fade, while the Sulfate-Free Brilliance Conditioner helps protect against color fade and dullness by nourishing over-processed hair. The collection is made with biotin and free of parabens and dyes.

Be Gentle

When your hair is wet, minimize damage by using a wide-tooth comb to protect fragile hair from breaking. Instead of a bath towel, use a microfiber hair wrap like this one.

Embrace The Gray

Color treatments and bleach can be damaging to your fine hair and scalp. If you decide to go au natural, look for specialized products that are sulfate-free to help keep your hair bright and healthy. Hair Biology’s Silver and Glowing line is ideal for helping you fall in love with your hair again. The Silver Shampoo and Silver Conditioner have a purple base that will remove any dulling residue and contracts yellow tones resulting in stunning, shiny silver strands! Finish with the Silver Hair Serum that will melt into a clear serum to meet silver or gray hair needs. It restores moisture and shine while smoothing and softening for healthy glowing hair.

Hair Biology has various formulas to fit your personal needs, such as volumizing products, ultra-hydrating products, taming + styling serum, and so much more, depending on your specific hair journey.

You can pick up Hair Biology to try it yourself at Target where it is exclusively available!

7 Trendy Pieces You Need For Fall

7 Trendy Pieces You Need For Fall 1978 2560 Tammy Caciola

Fall 2021……while many things are still TBD, we are all striving to find a sense of normalcy and joy. Subtle hints of positivity are found threading throughout the season’s styles as designers flood the runways with happy and bright colors. I encourage you to freshen up your mood and your closet as you look forward to venturing out of your homes and safely gathering with friends and family this fall by adding a few trends to your capsule wardrobe. Keep scrolling to see the 7 pieces on-trend for fall 2021 you need in your closet. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for more outfit inspiration.


The sweater vest is back with a bang this season, and I’m not mad about it! Perfect to layer under blazers or wear alone, this is one of the most fun trends this fall and fits almost every aesthetic in your wardrobe. Today’s style is cropped and colorful or oversized and layered. Neutral is always a good idea, too! Style it with anything from biker shorts to pleated skirts. The versatility of this staple piece will have you reaching for it again and again.


Cropped button-up cardigans can be found in many different shapes and silhouettes, making this trendy piece your go-to layer. The easy fit can be dressed down over a graphic tee for a casual date night or dressed up with a cashmere set for a holiday. Whether you choose chunky and cozy or blousy and feminine, this cropped cardigan trend will take you through the cooler months ahead.

I recently splurged on this cropped cardigan, and I’ve been wearing it non-stop. It’s a beautiful knit I love to wear by its self or layered over tops. I’m wearing this one above on sale for under $40.00.


If your fall calendar feels busier and you are moving away from loungewear and unstructured waistbands, try the trouser trend for a more polished look instead of reaching for denim. The options are endless yet still effortless. Pants this season are colorful, low rise or high waisted, leather or utility, wide-leg or cropped. Style them with boots, heels, or even your favorite pair of sneakers.


Though temperatures are dropping, it might still be too soon for your parka. Try a laid-back look inspired by men’s wear.  The plaid blazer trend has layering potential and adds a chic finishing touch to nearly any outfit. Wear it over a tank or turtleneck and pair it with a wide-leg trouser. I just grabbed this one, and I am almost ready to splurge on this one.


It wouldn’t be a fall without a cozy chic cable-knit sweater, right? For the record…I’m a big fan of this trend! This is a great piece for all-season layering and one that isn’t going out of style anytime soon. If you’re in the market for a new chunky sweater to add to your capsule wardrobe, this cable knit is perfectly neutral to wear all season long, and loving this chic striped knit!



Although over-the-knee boots were the star of the show for a few seasons, the sleek knee-high boot is now back in favor. Pair them with your favorite shirt dress, denim, or skirt for any occasion because they’re much easier to style than the other boot trends that have come and gone. I’m somewhat obsessed with these chic boots; the croc print always gets me to add to cart! Black boots are linked here and brown here. 


Quite possibly one of my favorite trends of them all is the quilted coat – an outerwear piece you won’t want to live without this fall. Similar to the puffer coat (only cozier), the quilted coat will take you so many places in style this season. Don’t know what to wear it with? You’re in luck! There are so many different styles of quilted jackets out there and for every occasion. Definitely grab this one if you can; it sells out regularly. This is a great second choice!

EVEREVE: September Style Edit

EVEREVE: September Style Edit 2560 1978 Tammy Caciola

Evereve outfit, hoodie blazer, fall outfit, her fashioned life


With fall officially starting to make its way in, I’m building my seasonal wardrobe with all the cozy-chic staples from Evereve. Think versatile pieces perfect for layering and ones you can easily dress up or down. Evereve has it all and is my go-to retailer when it comes to adding new capsule pieces to my collection. From cool and edgy to casual and chic, you’re guaranteed to find something every time you look at Evereve’s selection! They carry so many well-known brands, such as Agolde, Good American, Michael Stars, Vince Camuto, and Sundry, to name a few faves. Keep scrolling to see a few outfits featuring all my new fall favorites from Evereve!

In case you missed last month’s Evereve post, you can find it here.



fall wardrobe staple, hoodie blazer, fall outfits

A hoodie worn under a blazer is always a casual street-chic look that I love! This blazer is the best of both worlds because the hoodie is removable.


Her fashioned life, denim jacket, striped maxi dress

A denim jacket is a year-round staple piece every woman needs in her wardrobe. I wear this one over dresses, tees, and more. Also, this gorgeous maxi dress is one I’ll be wearing for years to come. I adore the blue, white, and purple coloring and the vertical striped pattern.


Graphic tank, create kindness, Evereve staple wardrobe pieces

I had to grab this tank when I saw it – CREATE KINDNESS. A simple white graphic tee will be your best friend in those times when you don’t know what to wear. During the summer, I wear this with my favorite denim shorts by itself and this fall I’ll wear it with jeans or leggings and a third layer!


Army green jacket, ribbed tank, Her Fashioned Life, Agolde shorts

This army green jacket will take you from work to the weekend in style. It features a zipper front closure, twill trim pockets, and a rib-knit waistband to keep the silhouette as comfortable as it is chic. If you need an end-of-summer refresher, these are my go-to shorts by Agolde – so comfortable and flattering.


plaid blazer, fall staples, white denim, Her Fashioned Life

Another blazer favorite! This chic blazer instantly pulls together any look, featuring a classic plaid print and detachable zip hood. Wear it from the office straight to dinner on the town! This is the perfect jacket for all fall and winter long.


Sweater tank vest, fall fashion, Her Fashioned Life

How good is this pretty camel color? Definitely one of the best shades for fall. Throw this sweater vest on with a pair of jeans and a slide, and when the weather turns cooler layer it over your favorite flannel or button-down. The versatility is endless.


Plaid shacket, Evereve outfit, white denim

This is one of the coziest shackets I’ve ever worn! The neutral plaid print adds an edge to this versatile shacket by BB Dakota. Since it’s cut from brushed fabric, it’s buttery soft. I love the snap front closure which can be worn as a layer over your favorite tee or tank, or snapped up and paired with jeans.


Off the shoulder pullover, white denim, white jeans, fall fashion, fall style, Her Fashioned Life

Anything off the shoulder is a YES for me! The subtle tan and ivory stripes on this pullover pair perfectly with my white jeans but look equally fabulous with a midi skirt and boots. If you’re stocking up on the best sweaters and pullovers for the upcoming season, this one is definitely a must-have.

Happy September, friends! Did you know that September is Healthy Empowered Aging Month? I’ve been using NOW skincare and supplements for years and LOVE the relaxing and healing effects they have. From their skincare and protein to their essential oils and supplements, NOW is a brand I really trust in my daily routine – I love that high quality can be affordable as well!

NOW is a respected leader in the natural products industry, with a mission to provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. Keep scrolling for a few of the best NOW products I have to share with you.

My day with NOW goes a little something like this…Watch HERE


My skin comes first every day! I love the dermatologist-recommended affordable skincare from NOW. I use the Vitamin C Gentle Scrub, Bakuchiol Skin Renewal Serum, Glutathione Skin Brightener, and the 2-in-1 Eye Correcting Cream.

Vitamin C Gentle Scrub: formulated to provide gentle, effective exfoliation of dead skin to help restore a more even skin tone and healthy complexion.

Bakuchiol Skin Renewal Serum: gently combats the appearance of imperfections and wrinkles. This beauty renewing formula moisturizes and refines for visibly younger-looking skin.

Glutathione Skin Brightener: helps brighten the skin’s appearance and improve elasticity and also provides intense moisture and hydration while reducing the appearance of skin pigmentation.

2-in-one Eye-Correcting Cream: formulated to naturally reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles around the eyes.


Next, I make my daily morning protein shake with NOW’s pea protein powder. This has been so important for me to keep my body healthy, from my hair to muscles. Their protein powder is pure and natural, unflavored or flavored, and mixes easily into your favorite beverages – my personal favorite is mixing it into my shake each morning.


Bella absolutely loves her immune support supplement from NOW. These tablets are veterinarian recommended and designed to help support your pet’s immune system and innate resistance to pathogens and help enhance liver and kidney function! It’s a chewable tablet she always looks forward to getting and the only supplement I’ve ever gotten her to take.


I keep NOW’s ESSENTIAL OILS throughout our house and have been using these for years. I love the relaxing and healing effects to help me keep a clear mind during a busy schedule. The oils can also help with a better night’s sleep. These essential oils are everywhere around my home, from sweet and woody scented oils to herbal lavender and peaceful sleep.

Try them on wool dryer balls, in your bathwater, added to hand sanitizer, your favorite house cleaning liquid, so many ways to fill your space with beautiful and relaxing scents.

In collaboration with NOW all opinions are my own.
