5 Easy Ways to Make Your Hair Grow Faster
5 Ways Your Hair Can Take 10 Years Off Your Age
During their consultation, many of my clients will first ramble through a list of things they want me to do to their hair, and then pause, sigh, let go of it all and with clarity say, "Just make me look younger."
The question is: What is young hair? Young hair is shiny, thick, well defined, natural and modern. It'snotdull, thin/straggly, shapeless, unnatural in color or dated in style.
Young Hair = Healthy Texture + Current Style
Nothing ages your hair faster than split ends. So, in the salon, 9 out of 10 times, my recommendation is to chop it off and start fresh—even if that means cutting it short. A cut that takes off the split ends and creates a solid shape (no thinning shears!) will make your hair look fuller, your layers more defined and your overall hair texture healthier.
Getting subtle highlights will make your hair look naturally sun-kissed, and a gloss will make your hair extremely shiny.
To reverse the signs of aging and take 10 years off in a hot minute, try these quick tricks:
1. Make your hair shinier.
It's much easier to prevent frizz than to fight it. Use a smoothing serum, cream or lotion on wet hair before blow-drying. Try Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Pure Treatment Oil (, at Sephora.com).
2. Add thickness.
Creating loose curls will hide thinned ends. Wrap thick sections around a curling iron of any size. A small iron will make a wave, and a large iron will make a bouncy blow-out. Check out the Keratin Complex 4-in-1 (9, at ).
A simple volumizing product will make hair look thicker as well. You can try Privé Concept Vert Volumizing Froth (.99, at Amazon.com) on wet hair or göt2b Fat-Tastic Dry Shampoo (, at Folica.com) on dry hair. Either way, volume = thickness!
3. Give shapeless hair more definition.
You can put it up into an effortless updo, or you can cut your own bangs to add some shape around your face.
4. Choose natural colors over bright, unnatural ones.
There's no quick-fix for color. Once you have it, keep it vibrant by using a color-safe shampoo. L'Oreal Professional Serie Expert Delicate Color Protecting Shampoo (.11, at Amazon.com) is an example of a shampoo that doesn't contain any color-stripping sulfates.
5. Update your style to look more modern.
When wearing your hair up, the higher the ponytail/bun/chignon, the younger the style is. The lower the ponytail/bun/chignon; the more conservative it is.
A side-part is romantic and young as well as an asymmetrical bun or chignon. When something is centered, it's more classic.
Use modern accessories. It's way more current to use thin headbands, mini clips and small bobby pins than it is to use large butterfly clips and scrunchies.
