Looking younger isn’t just about taking great care of your skin. When it comes to anti-aging, you need to maintain your hair too. OK, so you might not exactly get wrinkles in your hair, but your hair suffers every bit as much as your skin when it comes to aging. A full head of voluminous hair is often associated with youth as well as beauty. That’s why so many women rely upon hairpieces and extensions to give the illusion of natural fullness. Unfortunately, the overuse of extensions can put tension on hair follicles and lead to even poorer hair growth in the future. Shiny, bouncy, and healthy-looking hair comes much more naturally.
What happens to our hair as we age?
As we age, our hair tends to become much finer. Some women may even experience localized thinning and troublesome bald spots, which can knock their confidence.
One of the contributing factors towards thinning hair is that the scalp produces fewer natural oils. Oils are the secret to maintaining moisture and hydration. For your skin, a lack of collagen and elasticity results in less plumpness and volume, whereas a lack of oils combined with a reduction in the production of melanin results in gray and thinning hair.
Don’t worry though dah-ling, there’s plenty you can do to get more youthful-looking hair.
Time to switch up your styling habits.
It’s safe to say that our hair takes plenty of punishment during our lifetime. From coloring to heat styling as well as environmental factors, they can all disrupt and damage the cuticle. This can result in our hair looking dull and becoming more prone to breakage. That’s why it’s so important to infuse your hair with the best, natural, follicle-stimulating ingredients to promote thicker and fuller hair.
We recommend you use N4’s Volumizing Shampoo, which is sulfate and sodium chloride free. This highly concentrated, natural formula adds body and moisture to fine and aging hair and will immediately give it more movement, all-day bounce, and enhanced “lift.” Let’s face it, an all-natural hair-lift is infinitely less invasive or expensive than resorting to a face-lift! Looking youthful never felt more joyful!
You should also treat your hair to a weekly reconstructing masque.

Shhhh, that’s your secret!
Take care of your diet.
What you eat can have a considerable impact on the health of your hair, especially as you get older. You’ve all heard about anti-aging superfoods, but it turns out there are also hair superfoods that can actively nourish and improve the length, strength, shine, and texture of your hair.
For a more youthful complexion and to maintain the bouncy hair of your youth, make sure that you have a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, zinc, and vitamins A and C. Nutritionists recommend eating oily fish like salmon along with plenty of dark green leafy vegetables and snacking on nuts.
Finally, keep it loose.
Tight ponytails and topknots may be easy styles to carry off, but they can also put stress on your roots, which in time can lead to breakage and a receding hairline.
Instead of thinking about how high you can go, think about creating loose volume and texture instead, especially if you’re trying to attain the look of youth. Avoid products that make your hair too stiff and instead go for that perfectly undone, louche look with our Sugar Texturizing Spray. As a bonus, this product doesn’t just add texture; it also delivers hold and shine so you can look as young on the outside as you feel on the inside.
Youthful looking hair can still be yours no matter what stage of life you’re at.
