'As you pass the age of 40, the natural diameter of the hair shaft shrinks a bit,' explains A-list hairdresser Charles Worthington. 'So that means while you don't necessarily have less hair on your head, your hair feels thinner, and giving it that extra volume is really vital.'
Charles recommends investing in some tried and tested thickening products and using them to custom build a regime of shampoo, conditioner and a styler that suits you. 'Used in conjunction with each other, they will give you fabulous-looking hair.' he says.
Paula Hansley, Phyto's UK Buisness Development Manger agrees; 'With age, skin may become lined, but hair is something we can improve the look of without drastic measures.'
