Today's "young hair" is clean, healthy, shining and natural. If your hair and scalp are not healthy, they'll look old at any age.
 
 
Oily Hair

If your hair is oily, fight the excessive oil and bacteria that contribute to dandruff, scalp infections and skin breakouts by keeping your hair and scalp as clean as possible.
Shampoo as often as necessary. If you read the labels, you'll see that the acid-alkialine balance is generally expressed in pH scale of 0 to 14. On this scale, 7 represents a neutral balance of acid and alkaline. As the numbers get lower, they reflect increasing acidity. As they go higher (from 7 to 14), they show increasing alkalinity.
Always use warm water. Too much heat will quickly activate scalp oil and will worsen an oily condition.
Avoid overbrushing. Overbrushing stimulates the scalp and can intensify the problem of oiliness. You still have to brush your hair, but keep it to a minimum around scalp areas.
For a big boost, try a shampoo that contain fruits such as kiwi, lemons or pears. Fruit acids clean off the oil and debris that weigh hair down.
 
 
Dry Hair

Feel free to shampoo dry hair as often as necessary. Use a gentle conditioning product. If it is protein-rich, it should be gentle and nourishing for your hair. A variety of these products is available in most stores.
Condition your hair after every shampoo. Use a product with ingredients to strengthen dry, fragile hair. If it has protein and conditioners, it should leave your hair with a youthfully glossy shine.
If your hair and skin are extremely dry, buy a humidifier for your bedroom and always use it in cold weather. It will protect your hair and skin from the drying effects of indoor heat. The reason most British women have beautiful hair and youthful skin is that the mists and fogs of the British Isles provide the natural moisture they need to avoid dryness.
Twice a week rub olive or castor oil into your scalp at bedtime. Wear a plastic cap to avoid getting oil on your pillowcase while you sleep. Shampoo it out the next morning.
 
 
For Fuller Hair

Layers add body to your hair, so cut shorter pieces beneath long layers. They'll push out the long layers and you'll instantly see voluminous hair.

Try a shine-enhancing color rinse. The color coats the hair shaft, making it fuller.

Use a weightless spray gel. The sugar in the mix smoothens the cuticle, creating light-reflective shine, giving the illusion of fuller hair.

Water causes hair shafts to swell, resulting in a bigger look. So using steam rollers can give you your bounciest hair ever.

Emergency Cover Your Roots Tip

Mascara or even eye shadow can do the trick. Paint roots with mascara (avoid black; opt for black-brown or auburn, and wipe excess of wand first with a tissue) or brush shadow that matches your hair color over roots with a sponge-tipped applicator.
