Middle Age Hair Care
Fifty percent of women will experience some form of hair loss or thinning before the age of 50, which often is exacerbated by menopause. Your hormones which support hair growth begin to change.
According to Healthline.com, “Research suggests that hair loss during menopause is the result of a hormonal imbalance. Specifically, it’s related to a lowered production of estrogen and progesterone. … In some cases, however, these hormones can cause more hair to grow on the face.”
Slow down hair thinning with a few best practices
- Don’t wear your hair so tightly and make sure that you let your hair down throughout the day.
- Dry brush your hair at night or before you go into the shower. Make sure you do this gently and it will help to extract shedding hairs
- Wash your hair more often! It’s a misconception that too much washing causes a further loss for women. Washing your hair will help get out those shedding hairs and each time you won’t feel like you’ve lost so much hair.
- Maintain the hair that you have on your head by using the correct hair loss products for your hair. Make sure to talk to your stylist and hair loss expert to make sure you are using the best products.
Hair can mat up and tangle quickly with shed hairs trapped inside with the rest of your hair. Make sure you are carefully removing dead hair and gently exfoliating your scalp. Proper hair care makes all the difference when it comes to combating hair loss.
