Hair care with Age

Hair care with Age

1. Hair Growth Cycle Changes

Hair growth follows a cyclic pattern of anagen (growth), catagen (transition), and telogen (rest) phases. With age, the duration of the anagen phase tends to shorten, leading to reduced hair growth and thinner hair strands. This results in overall hair thinning and decreased hair density.

2. Hormonal Shifts

Hormonal changes, especially during menopause, can lead to a decrease in oestrogen levels. Oestrogen helps maintain hair growth and thickness. The decline in oestrogen can contribute to hair loss, increased hair thinning, and changes in hair texture.

3. Reduced Sebum Production

Sebum is the natural oil the scalp produces to moisturise and protect hair. As women age, sebum production often decreases, leading to dryness and potential brittleness of hair strands.

4. Scalp Changes

The scalp’s blood circulation may reduce with age, impacting the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to hair follicles. This can affect hair follicle health and lead to decreased hair growth.

5. Hair Diameter Changes

Hair strands might become finer in diameter with age due to various factors, including hormonal changes, genetics, and reduced follicle activity. This can result in weaker and more fragile hair prone to breakage.

6. Grey Hair Formation

The reduced melanin production as women age leads to hair greying. Melanin is responsible for hair colour, and its decline results in the loss of pigment. Grey hair can be coarser, drier, and more challenging to manage.

7. Texture Changes

Aging hair often experiences changes in texture. Hair can become more wiry, coarse, and difficult to style due to changes in the protein structure of the hair shaft and reduced moisture retention.

8. Environmental Damage Accumulation

Over time, exposure to environmental factors like UV radiation, pollution, and heat styling can damage hair. Ageing hair, which is already more fragile, is more susceptible to this damage.

9. Protein and Nutrient Needs

As hair strands weaken with age, there’s a greater need for adequate protein intake and nutrient support. Protein is a critical component of hair structure and proper nutrition is essential for maintaining hair health.

10. Scalp and Hair Hygiene

Maintaining a healthy scalp becomes crucial. Regular scalp care, gentle cleansing, and proper conditioning help manage dryness and promote a conducive environment for hair growth.

11. Minimising Styling Stress

With ageing hair being more fragile, it’s essential to reduce harsh styling practices like tight ponytails, aggressive brushing, and excessive heat styling. These practices can lead to breakage and damage.

12. Consultation with Professionals

Consulting with dermatologists or trichologists can provide personalised insights and recommendations for hair care products and practices that cater to the specific needs of ageing hair.

Understanding the intricate changes that occur with age can guide effective strategies for maintaining healthy and vibrant hair as women grow older.
