Get out of that hair rut!

Whether you want sexy shine, lush curls, beachy waves or beautiful, rich colour every day can be a great-hair day with our age-erasing tips
by Adriana Ermter
IF WE HAD OUR WAY, getting ready

What You Can Expect: This is the glory decade, when hair is at its thickest and healthiest and seems to never stop growing. The intense scalp-oil production that kicks in during the teenage years is still going strong, so you dont need to work as hard to keep hair looking good, says Thomas. She recommends washing it regularly, though, because hair can look oily. Stylish Solutions: Excess sebum helps protect the scalp and nourishes hair follicles, but it doesnt always make its way to the tips, and primping can take a toll. When hair has been damaged through regular use of at irons and aggressive styling, the ends of the hair may feel opposite to the

roots: dry and brittle, says Thomas. Its key to protect your locks from heat styling and look for shampoos and conditioners that are gentle on your hair.

in the morning would be just like a hair commercial: Every strand would behave beautifully, frizz wouldnt exist and strangers would stop us on the street to ask about our special secret to shine. But in reality, how we feel about our hair isnt that easy or straightforward. Its normal to get bored by your hair, especially if youve had the same cut for a while, says Jeni Thomas, a senior scientist with Pantene. The key to keeping your look fresh, whether youre 20 or 60, is as simple as tweaking your routine and style to play up your hairs best assets.

Best Way to Wear It: If you like long, loose locks, this is the time to go for it, says Daniel Naumovski, a stylist and the co-owner of Torontos Taz Hair Co. Avoid severe styles like a tightly pulled-back ponytail, unless you want to project an older, professional vibe.

What You Can Expect: For most women, this means hair that is around 50-percent grey. Your hairs biological pigmentation process slows and eventually stops, explains Thomas. As well, your hair no longer benets from the protective e ects of melanin, so it may be more prone to UV damage, which has a weakening e ect. Hair will also be noticeably thinner in texture, says Kellett. Stylish Solutions: Naumovski recommends talking to your colourist about the di erent types of haircolouring treatments available for maximum coverage, and getting a fresh haircut.

What You Can Expect: This is the superwoman decade, when careers, marriage and babies take over, reducing mirror time with your hair. Its no surprise then that hair takes a hit, receding at the temples and shedding. This has to do with the hormonal swings that go along with pregnancy, explains Thomas. You may also notice aking, irritation and redness at the scalp, cautions Lisa Kellett, a dermatologist in Toronto. Stylish Solutions: Topical treatments are recommended if you su er from any irritation. For more persistent issues like scalp psoriasis, make an appointment with a dermatologist. Treatment may include prescription medicated shampoos and topical steroids, says Kellett. Best Way to Wear It: If youve ever dreamed of bangs, now is a great time to see how they complement your face, says Naumovski, who also recommends consulting with your stylist to create a haircut to optimize your hairs texture.

What You Can Expect: Yes, this is when wiry and coarse grey hairs pop up overnight and, no, we dont like it. Women start colouring their hair more frequently, says Naumovski. Its not just for fashion; its for maintenance. As a result, hair can become over-processed and more prone to breakage, warns Thomas. Women with sensitive scalps may not be able to tolerate additional chemical treatments and may experience irritantcontact dermatitis or allergic-contact dermatitis, says Kellett. Stylish Solutions: Before adding colour, Kellett advises asking your colourist to perform a patch test of the hair dye on your skin. This will help ensure that there are no adverse reactions. Protect your scalp while maintaining the quality and longevity of your hair colour by using shampoos, conditioners and styling products designed for colour-treated hair, adds Thomas. Best Way to Wear It: Skip the soccer-mom cut and aim for shoulder length with body-inducing longer layers. There are no more rules, says Naumovski. You dont have to chop

in this age group cut their hair shorter, says Naumovski. It makes their hair look thicker. Topical formulations such as minoxidil can help reduce the appearance of thinning hair, says Kellett. Best Way to Wear It: You dont have to go all G.I. Jane, but this is a great time to try a shorter style, like a bob. And if you simply cant part with long locks, keep it polished with a smooth part and ends. For special occasions, avoid tightly pulled-back updos, which can add years to your look.

60s, says Naumovski. Now, these women are condent, funky and more willing to take chances with their hair than when they were younger. Best Way to Wear It: Anything goes, but avoid mistakes like teasing or over-styling. And if you wear it short, opt for volumizing layers with soft, feminine appeal. Whatever your style, make sure you have it trimmed every six weeks. And if you still have bangs, keep them a little shorter so they dont draw attention to ne lines around your eyes.
