For years, we’ve worried about ways to stop – or slow down – the clock when it comes to our face, hands and neck. But based on the newest products taking over the market, it may actually be our hair that’s giving away our true age. But your hair doesn’t have to rapidly age, lose its colour and then fall out. While those things may seem like an inevitability, you can improve the state of your locks, and make them look super shiny and youthful again. Here’s how:
As we age, the colour of our hair begins to dull and fade. Because constantly colouring your hair can cause even more damage, it’s important to find a daily solution that will brighten up the colour of your hair and add some shine. The Nano Works shampoo and conditioner from Pureology is a completely vegan, sulphate-free formula that uses green tea, sugar cane, citrus, apple and wine extracts to bring out the colour of your hair and give it that fresh-from-the-salon shine. It’s a bit of an investment, but a little goes a long way and the results will totally be worth it. $60-62 at various salons.
Pump Up the Volume
Getting a face-lift feels extreme, but giving your hair a lift may be just what the doctor ordered. Rejuvenate your hair with a root-boosting spray like the Youth Boost Fullness Emulsion Spray from Tresemmé. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, which are known to slow down the signs of aging, this thickening spray goes straight on the roots to give your hair a well-deserved volume enhancement. $8 at your local drug store.
By the time you reach a certain age, it’s probably fair to say that you’ve done some pretty harsh things to your hair. Whether you’ve hit the bleach hard, go for regular blowouts or have experienced the infamous perm, your hair has probably taken quite a beating over the years—and now it’s showing. Not to worry, the hair scientists at Nexxus have got your back. The Nexxus Encapsulate Caviar Serum looks as intense as it sounds. Packed with white caviar—a secret ingredient top beauty brands have been using for years—the serum reconstructs damaged strands and literally erases years of damage. $20 at your local drug store.
And if these three things fail, head to your salon and get a haircut. It’s incredible how shedding a few inches of hair will make you feel instantly refreshed.
