Hair aging is most definitely a thing, but don't worry—like fine lines, your locks can easily be maneuvered to look good as new.
Before donning a youthful 'do, your hair first has to be in its best condition. Below are three common tress troubles and their matching solutions!
1. Hair Fall
Hair thins out as we age, so it's essential to nourish it with a daily dose of keratin to reinforce strands, preventing damage.

2. Overtreated Hair
Heat-styling and frequent coloring contribute to loss of moisture and damage. Use a rinse-off treatment daily to give your tresses a powerful dose of hydration.

3. Gray Hair
All you need to battle the grays is a good colorist. "Since we are Asian, any shade of brown will enhance our complexion. Just make sure it's more of the yellow tones rather than orange to keep your look sophisticated," says master stylist Henri Calayag (tel. no. 799 1495).
Henri continues, "The most dramatic way to look younger is to mak a drastic change in your hair length—if your hair is short, grow it long, and if you have long hair, chop it off!"
1. Short Hair
Simple styling: Part your hair to the side and secure with a bobby pin for an ultra-feminine look.
Dare to: Add texture to your mane with sea-selt spray, like Beach Born's Sea Salt Spray (P180, Beach Born) for a messy, cool-girl 'do.
2. Long Hair
Simple styling: Opt for a pin-straight ponytail, or take it further with low pigtails.
Dare to: Sport a braid (or two) to jazz up a pulled-back head of hair.
