After that significant milestone birthday, our hair starts to change considerably. Thankfully, professional hairdressers know a thing or two about reviving all types of hair, including older, damaged hair. So we asked some stylists for tricks they use on their own changing hair:
1. Do a Final Rinse with Cool Water
Once you’ve washed and conditioned your locks, a quick final rinse with cold water helps seal the cuticles, locking in moisture and helping to ensure a smooth finish to your style.
2. Ditch the Cotton Towel
Wrap freshly washed hair in a bamboo towel and leave on while you dry off and dress. Bamboo is brilliant at absorbing excess moisture, plus the fibers are super soft, making it gentle on hair. You won’t need to use your hairdryer for as long either, minimizing heat damage and saving time.
3. Choose the Right Products
Many women are afraid to use a thickening treatment – worried it will weigh down thinning hair. But that simply isn’t the case! Pantene’s Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment is a lightweight, leave-in formula that you can use every day to create fuller-looking, thicker-feeling hair, without affecting its natural shine and bounce.
Also, try switching out your shampoo and conditioner for Pantene Expert Age Defy Collection. The Age Defy shampoo and conditioner’s concentrated formula will help turn back the clock on unruly grays, dryness, thinning, breakage and frizz.
4. Use a Spray Bottle with Water
If you’ve got bedhead that’s gone flat, has awkward kinks or an unmanageable fringe but haven’t got time for a wash, spritz with a water spray and restyle as normal.
5. Spray Styling Product on Your Brush
One of the biggest mistakes people make when using styling products is applying too much directly to the hair. Instead, spritz product lightly on the bristles of your brush, and then brush through your hair, ensuring you cover all strands evenly.
6. Don’t be Afraid to Apply Oils or Serums
As the years pass, the texture of your hair changes and can become more prone to damage. A nourishing hair serum – like Pantene Repair & Protect Overnight Miracle Serum – will help erase six months of damage in just one use!
