Jennifer Lopez's voluminous hair was center stage during a recent taping of the American Idol auditions in L.A. At 45, her hair is looking better than ever, which begs the question, how does she do it?
No doubt she has a great stylist and is using top-notch products for her hair, but for those who want to go one step beyond cosmetics, consider utilizing advanced medical treatments that have been shown to enhance the volume and thickness of hair, even if that hair has already begun to thin. Treatments like Viviscal Pro, a marine-derived nutritional supplement, and low level laser therapy are both extremely effective. Viviscal helps boost the overall health of the hair follicles themselves, which tend to weaken as we age - think of it like calcium supplements to help stave off osteoporosis. And low level laser therapy uses light energy to stimulate the follicles at the cellular level, boosting cellular metabolism and resulting in increased thickness, fullness and growth in the hair strands.
Of course, cosmetic products are also helpful. A good one to keep in mind is Pantene's AgeDefy line. My clinic was involved in the early research and consumer testing of the AgeDefy Advanced Thickening Treatment product, so I know it well.
