Hair Loss Help: How To Stop Your Hair From Aging

You probably know how to take care of your skin as it ages, and where to find the products that treat those annoying signs of aging skin. But, do you know how to prevent your hair from aging, or what to do if you are already experiencing signs of aging hair?

Signs Your Hair is Aging

One of the most common signs of aging hair is thinning hair. Keep in mind it is normal to lose up to 100 hairs per day. However, for many women hormonal changes during menopause are the culprit for their thinning hair and hair loss. As women age (and men) the scalp becomes tighter and drier, which affects the blood circulation and the growth of the hair follicles. Another common sign of aging: that first gray hair. By the time most men and women reach age 50 they have far more than just one gray hair. What causes our hair to turn gray or white? It is the result of cells ceasing to produce pigment which, thankfully, happens naturally as we age.

If you have been experiencing dryer than normal hair, blame it on aging. When you were younger your scalp produced enough oil to coat your hair to the tip. As you age your scalp becomes dryer and as a result, naturally produces less oil. This also explains why you may have noticed that your hair feels frizzier than you it used.

Treatments for Aging Hair:

If you’ve started losing your hair, don’t be alarmed. There are plenty of hair regrowth treatment options available. Care for Your Hair: Reduce the use of tool and products that could damage your hair further including bleaching and high temperature heat styling tools. If you use these tools, now is the time to turn down the temperature settings on blow dryers, straighteners, and heat rollers. One other tip, avoid prolonged use of hairstyles that pull on your hair, such as ponytails and braids. Get the Right Hair Cut: Consider changing hair styles. Now is the time to find a cut and color that works with your aging hair. To add depth to the appearance of your hair,use a combination of low lights and highlights.

Use the Right Products: Stay away from harsh chemicals. Use protein rich treatments that contain amino acids or wheat proteins. Try using moisturizing shampoo and conditioning products including a daily leave-in conditioner, and a weekly deep conditioning hair mask. Argan Oil: This oil is incredibly hydrating for hair. You only need a little drop to add moisture to your locks. Myoxin: This won’t help you regrow hair you’ve lost, but it can help to strengthen your existing hair, giving it a thicker appearance.
