Best Anti Aging Hair Tips | Jen Atkin
It’s no secret that as we age, our hair changes in color and texture (hello, frizzy grays!). And while we’re constantly bombarded with ways to prevent our skin from aging (Moisturizer! Diet! Sunscreen!), we’re left wondering: Is there anything we can do to stop our hair from aging? To answer all our anti-aging hair care questions, we caught up with the stylist behind the most famous and luscious heads of hair, celebrity hair guru Jen Atkin.
There’s no better expert to chat hair with than Jen. Not only does she travel the world primping and priming the tresses of Jessica Alba and Chrissy Teigen, she also has her own successful hair care range called OUAI (pronounced way) sold through Sephora. That is, if you can get your hands on it; it sells out as soon as it’s restocked. From tips for achieving youthful-looking hair to why your shampoo and conditioner shouldn’t always match, read on as we pick the brain of the best hairstylist in the business.
How does our hair change as we age?
Your hair can lose elasticity so it breaks easier, which is caused by a dip in keratin levels. Hair can also
start to grow in slower, the texture can change, and tresses can become drier as well. All are normal factors
of aging, so I wouldn’t get too worried since there’s anti aging supplemental changes, with anti aging hair care you
can make to slow or prevent these things from happening.
How can we stop our hair from aging?
I really strongly believe that you will not see changes in your hair by just doing external remedies — you
need to do internal as well. For years, I was sending clients to the health food store to get biotin and fish
Haircuts and styles that make us look more youthful?
Haircuts and hair styles can make all the difference
in your appearance. Make sure to consult with your
stylist on what looks best on you given your lifestyle,
age, etc. You want to wear something that complements
you; and never want your hair wearing you.
I always say it all depends on you; every cut is
different for everyone. I’m loving a short, chic bob
or even a lob [long bob], which looks flattering on
just about anyone, and is easy to manage.
Biggest Mistakes Women Make Anti Aging Hair Care and Styling?
Most people buy their shampoo and conditioner from the same product line (volume, repair, clean, etc.) and do
not realize that you usually need a different shampoo and conditioner variety for each. Fixing this common
mistake can be the key to achieving your anti aging hair goals and care.
Aside from the right shampoo and conditioner, what 3 hair products should every woman own?
Use OUAI Treatment Masque at least once a week for deep restoration. If you’re crunched for time, apply to your
strands pre-workout and braid in to let the nourishing ingredients absorb into the hair with the added heat from
your workout exercise.
Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt is a game changer. I love using this a couple times a week
for a nice deep cleaning. It exfoliates the scalp and leaves you feeling refreshed.
The Dyson Supersonic Blow dryer is super lightweight, quiet, and chic, with a powerful engine. This is the ultimate
luxe blow-dryer. It’s so small and easy to travel with, and dries the hair so much faster than any traditional brand
