As we age, our tresses do too. Once upon a time I had a jungle of a mane with nary a grey hair in sight. Times change. Bwah! Now that I'm in my thirties, I've lost some of the volume I once had and those pesky little greys have definitely found me. And I bet I'm not the only one...Thankfully, there are some products that can help you regain your hair's once youthful appearance! Hey, we're diligently taking caring of our skin, eating clean and staying active in order to stay "forever young." Our hair deserves some attention too! So, I've rounded up some products that can help you get younger looking hair...
1. Just say not to alcohol. The older I grow the drier my hair seems to get, so products that contain alcohol are a no no. Instead I turn to more moisturizing products that hydrate my hair and make it look glossier and, most importantly, healthier. You may not know this, but I have naturally curly hair. Nobody can accuse me of not loving a good blowout, but I typically only get them when I'm traveling. Most of the time I go with my hair's naturally curly texture which means I need a good mousse or gel to help define my curls and waves. Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Alcohol-Free Styling Gel allows me to combat frizz and moisturize at the same time! Speaking of...

2. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! As soon as I started coloring my hair, my stylist stressed how important it was that I deep condition it at least once a week. All you have to do is apply a good hair mask at the start of your shower and rinse when you're ready to get it out. It's as simple as that. I like Pantene's Pro-V Expert Collection Age Defy Rejuvenating Hydration Hair Masque. In fact, I love the whole Age Defy line. I notice that my hair looks noticeably thicker after using it. Score!
3. Be kind. The last thing you want to do if you have dry, brittle tresses is yank a brush through them when your hair is wet...especially if you haven't properly conditioned or detangled said tresses. That's why I use a brush specially made for wet hair, like the Wet Brush, and a good detangling spray like Carol's Daughter CD4Kids Detangler. This extra step takes next to no time and will help keep breakage at bay. On a side note, the CDFKids line is something that mama and kiddos can use alike!
