Hair becomes less bouncy as it gets older -- weak spots along the shafts literally drag strands down. Plus, as you age, your hair thins out, which translates to lifeless locks, Gibson says.
To repair hair: Use an uplifting formula. Moisturizing conditioners can flatten, so pick a light rinse-out conditioner, Gibson says. Try Nexxus Sublime Volume Luscious Bodifying Conditioner, $13.99, drugstores -- it's enriched with panthenol, a B vitamin that has been shown to plump up the hair shaft.
