Women over 40 beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle

We talk about a lot of things to look our best here at Fab Over 40, but most of the questions I hear from readers is about hair. Should I wear it long or short, should I get layers, should I wear bangs? But what we oftentimes don’t think about is that our hair can age much like our skin can and we need to change up not only our hair styles, but how we take care of our hair.

Pantene Age Defy

Pantene created the Pantene Expert Collection Age Defy hair care line for just this purpose.  Women over 40 have changing hair needs that really haven’t been addressed before. I love that it’s an affordable line that can work wonders, and Pantene has been a go-to hair care line I’ve used since I was in my early teens.

Pantene Expert Collection Age Defy tackles the 7 signs of aging hair:

  • Breakage
  • Split Ends
  • Frizz
  • Unruly grays
  • Lackluster color
  • Thin look
  • Dryness

There’s a lot of scientific study of hair that went into Pantene Age Defy. No wonder it was chosen by More as one of their Fierce & Fabulous Product award winners for tackling thinning hair. Several months ago before the product was available to the public I got to speak to the makers of Pantene about this new line of Age Defy and I was excited for it to become available because of all the research that went into this line of hair care and that finally a product was targeted for people over 40 and their hair issues.

Fab Over 40's Hair with Pantene

Our hair is one of the first things people notice on us, so taking care of our hair to look its best is important. It’s one of the reasons I do spend a lot of money on a good cut and color. But I trust Pantene to help those cuts and color look their best. Pantene Age Defy is gentle enough to use every day and even on colored hair. I like how it doesn’t weigh down my hair and helps it to look great.  Since Pantene Age Defy came out, I have been using the shampoo, conditioner and the Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment. I’ve even noticed that the shampoo bottle has migrated over to Mr. Fab’s side of the shower – he tells me he loves this shampoo.  I like the conditioner as well because it doesn’t weigh down the hair, yet it makes it feel soft and touchable.  After I wash and condition, I spray several squirts of the Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment in my hand and work it into the scalp.  It’s that easy. It works on either wet or dry hair – I typically use it on wet hair.  I’ve asked my hair stylist if he thinks my hair is thinning and he said absolutely not. So with that in mind I’m going to keep on using the Advanced Thickening Treatment to keep it that way!

Because of the potent blend of vitamin B3, panthenol and caffeine that is delivered deep into the hair with the Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment, results can be seen almost immediately according to the company. Day 1 existing hair is thickened  by Day 14 hair achieves maximum thickness and Day 30 and beyond hair is left supple and its maximum thickness is maintained.
