Offering you more than just the best shampoo for ageing hair, we have included a few clever hair hacks to ensure your tresses are styled to perfection just below.

Hair hack for: Volume deprived tresses

Did you know that hairsprays are great for more than just sealing your updo? If your hair is falling flat and you are on a quest to boost volume, we recommend using the VO5 Volume Creation Hairspray.

Simply flip your hair forward and spray hair from root to tip (work in sections for extra va-va-voom).

Hair hack for: Brittle strands

Using a weekly deep conditioning treatment will help to moisturise rough and brittle strands. We love Dove Regenerate Nourishment Rescue Cream Mask for creating the appearance of healthy-looking hair. Perfect for tresses in need of repair.

Hair hack for: Thinning

If thinning is your major bugbear, it’s time to get clever with your hairstyles. Choose from ’60s-inspired bouffants (with some gentle teasing for height) or if you are an avid center-parting wearer, it may be time to flip it to a side-parting. This easy hair hack instantly gives the illusion of fuller tresses.
