The Hair Tweak That Makes You Look as Young as a Jenner Sister
The trick: Use volume-boosting hair products and tools.
Why: There’s a reason you’ve probably never seen an elderly woman with a thick, flowing head of silvery hair. Scientists have researched the thickness of hair in women of all ages and found that there’s a measurable difference in the thickness of strands between young, middle-aged and elderly women. So even if you don’t experience gradual hair loss (knock on wood), your strands literally thin with age.
Try: If you’ve ever been disappointed by volumizing products in the past, take heart: Recent advances in technology have led to products that are clinically proven to plump each strand from the inside, literally thickening its diameter with continuous use.
In the meantime, fake thick hair until you make it. “Dry” sprays – dry shampoo, dry finishing spray and dry texturizing spray — are capable of volumizing the finest-hair instantly.
If you have mid-length to long hair, styling hair in loose waves goes a long way in creating the illusion of thickness. Just look at celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Julia Roberts, forty-somethings whose luxuriant waves make them look so much younger. Try an easy-to-use automatic wand.
