Oh my God,” you say. “Antiaging hair products? Just stop. STOP.” Listen, we know. We know how stupidly insane all of this antiaging stuff has gotten, how the entire beauty world seems obsessed with stopping gravity and life’s natural cycle through antiaging neck creams, wrinkle-reducing blushes and line-plumping lip products. But before you dis the antiaging hair category, trust us when we say that these products really do work — just not in the same way as your retinols.
Because no, antiaging hair products won’t reduce the nonexistent wrinkles in your hair shaft or give you the lush hair that you had as a toddler, but they will keep your hair from turning dry, frizzy, wired and faded as you age, which is all you can really hope for when dealing with something that’s already, you know, dead. Because these shampoos, conditioners, serums, mists and hair sprays are all specifically formulated to shield your hair from damage using powerful antioxidants, UV shields and color-preservers, all of which will leave you protected from turning into the Crypt Keeper. Scroll through to see our favorite antiagers, below, and add in a few to your current rotation tomorrow. Your hair in 20 years will thank you.
