Hair Today: Grey Tomorrow

To the indignities of aging – wrinkles, sagging breasts, memory loss, uh, wrinkles, add hair changes. Yes, of course, we all know that hair turns grey, and men lose theirs, but there are actually 7 signs of aging hair: breakage, split ends, frizziness, unruly grey, lackluster color, thin look and dryness. The craziness of grey hair is what gets me. It sticks out at odd angles to the rest of your hair, defying you, taunting you. But Pantene has a new expert collection to help women combat aging hair. These include Age Defy Shampoo and Conditioner, Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment, Age Defy Rejuvenating Hydration Masque, Advanced Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner, Advanced Keratin Repair and the Advanced Keratin Spilt End Fuser. I got to try some of these out at a MomTrends party where Dr. Jeni Thomas, who has a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry and is P&G’s Beauty and Grooming Principal Scientist, explained in technical and practical terms what is going on with women’s aging hair. Dr. Thomas also warned against yanking ponytails from your hair, something I do every time I finish exercising. Uh oh. Luckily the Pantene products can repair and prevent further damage.
