What are good hair products for women over 40 that really works? I can’t believe when you age your hair gets old. I am not sure why I didn’t realize it but I didn’t, and it wasn’t until my hair resembled a brillo pad instead of the chic mane I was used to that I had to do something. I did what anyone with a problem does. I looked for a solution. I ordered BirchBox. I did so knowing it would be a hit or miss experience, but I couldn’t afford to buy each full- size product to try, so I invested $10 a month into finding what works best for me. Then I can share it with you!

Our hair change as we age. Products that used to work for us are no longer enough. Read my tips and my picks of best hair products for women over 40.

Blow Dryer Help-

Bumble and Bumble Repair Blow Dryer Hair-

This has been the best sample I received thus far from BirchBox. The Bumble and Bumble BB Repair Blow Dryer Damaged Hair. This is what it does and it works. I mean really works

“This serum-in-creme elixir for dry or damaged hair helps seal split ends and protects against heat, breakage and UV damage, too. Proven to help repair hair and keep styles looking healthy for up to 3 days.”

I use this right after I towel dry my hair. I use such a small amount that the bottle may outlast my blow dryer. You just need a tiny amount and your hair will look great for days!

I give this product 5 Lips!

Davines All in One Milk. It is a nourishing all in one leave-in treatment that adds volumes, shine, and protects your hair from the heat. This all in one solution was also part of my Birch Box.

I give this product 4 Lips it works well but I am still in love with Bumble and Bumble.

Dry Shampoos

Amika- Silken Up Dry Conditioner it detangles and softens your hair to make it shiny and manageable. I used this after not washing my hair for two days in a row. I ran out of time so I used this I layered thinly on and I it allowed me to style my hair without flakes. I give it 4 lips because it is a bit expensive for a full-size bottle.

Hair Colors-

The cheapest one is this Kool-Aid Hair Dye Recipe
