Just as our skin ages, our hair ages, too. Even if you are not predisposed to hereditary hair loss, as we age hair becomes finer, grows slower and often loses some of its ability to hold a style.
Volumising products can help with the cosmetic appearance as they coat or swell the hair slightly, making each strand microns thicker in diameter.
Try different products to find which one works best for you and when washing hair, use a lightweight finishing rinse to close the cuticle (outer layer of the hair) rather than a conditioner, which can weigh the hair down with excessive moisture.
It may be an idea to ask the advice of your hairdresser as to the best style for you.
