How To Take Care of Your Hair as You Age


The aging process is inevitable and it does affect more than just our skin and bones. You might start finding more hair strands in the shower drain or notice that it is becoming drier each day. Indeed, your hair will not be as strong as it used to be or grow back as fast as it used to. The most you can do is take care of existing problems and take preventive measures to avoid losing more hair. The following is a simple guide on how to take care of your hair as you age.

Come to terms with the aging process

Exposure to the environment, toxic chemicals, and diet are significant reasons you are experiencing hair loss. However, let’s not fail to recognize that genetics and the aging process have a part to play in the way your hair ages.  Keep in mind that it is not much you can do to change your genetics and not reverse aging. Therefore, instead of wishing your hair would go back to its former glory, look at it as a way to celebrate the many years you have lived.

Avoid putting tension on your hair

Yanking your hair out during combing or putting your hair in tight ponytails will only damage your already-thinning hair and increase hair loss. It would help to gentler your hair and reduce tension on your weak hair follicles as you age. Make a few adjustments, such as using a wide-tooth comb and loosening your ponytails and buns.

Establish a healthy hair care routine

The best thing you can do for your hair is to start taking care of it now. Avoid shampoos containing sulfates and alcohol that strip your hair of the little oil it produces. Steer clear of heat treatments and avoid exposing your hair to caustic chemicals in perms and bleaches. Stimulate your scalp by massaging it with oils and use the reputable natural hair rejuvenation products and protein treatments to add moisture back into your hair.

Understand your hormonal changes

As you grow older, the hormonal changes in your body affect almost every part of your body. Both your hair and hair follicles begin to shrink, leading to thinning the hair. When the hair follicles shrink, you begin to lose more hair, which does not grow back as fast as it used to. The oil glands on your scalp also stop replenishing themselves, leading to dry and frizzy hair, as well as scalp tightness. 

Find ways to decompress

Stress is not only bad for your mental health, but it is also not good for your hair. Many individuals have reported losing more hair due to bouts of stress. For starters, ensure you get enough sleep to give your body a chance to heal itself. Incorporate stress management techniques such as meditation and journaling for healthy hair. Make time for the things you love and practice self-care.

Final remarks

Well, don’t forget to eat a healthy, balanced diet with vitamins and nutrients such as iron, biotin, and omega-3. It will take time to see a positive change in your hair. However, if you are patient and consistent with your hair care routine, you will start to see positive changes.
