7 Years Younger - Your Anti-Aging Tip Sheet
  Is the look of your hair aging you? Implement these quick tricks to turn back the clock. Expect results instantly!

Renew your shampoo technique
Here’s a head’s-up on aging changes: With the years, your hair texture tends to get more wiry and the diameter of individual strands decreases. The right washing technique can maximize fullness and volume while minimizing damage. The key shift: Apply shampoo only to your roots. Shampoo’s main purpose is to cleanse the scalp, preventing the build-up of flaky dandruff and oily sebum. After you rub gently to work up a lather on top, allow the suds to run through your hair. No need to scrub the length of your strands; let the product lift away any surface debris. And skip the repeat shampoo; you don’t need to wash hair twice, no matter what the instructions say. Road-test a moisturizing shampoo; these thicken hair and zip up split ends so your hair looks fuller, softer, and super-shiny.

Go deep once a week
Masks, or deep conditioners, are formulated to remedy dryness, roughness, and dullness with an intense dose of conditioners. Typically, you comb one through your hair, leave it in 3 to 15 minutes, and then rinse out. In the shower, apply product once you wet your hair. For extra body, use a wide-tooth comb so it spreads evenly. Then continue to shower—the steam from the hot water will encourage the conditioner to sink in. If you want to deep-condition without showering, apply to damp hair then wrap in a warm dry towel (microwave it!) to enhance product penetration. You may have to experiment to find the optimal frequency for your hair. Start by using a mask every other week—if your hair is fine or thinning, apply only from mid-shaft to ends to avoid weighing down strands. If deep conditioning leaves strands softer and healthier-feeling without weighing them down, you can use up to twice a week.
