Signs your hair and scalp are aging
When you think about how your looks will change as you age, you likely focus on changes to your skin. But your hair and scalp are just as susceptible to the consequences of time. Ever wonder what the most common signs of aging hair are? Here are the three most common:
- Hair becomes thin and grows slowly. Your hair stays in its resting phase longer than normal. As a result, your hair will start thinning and not grow as fast. You may notice your scalp becomes more visible.
- Hair becomes dry and breaks easily. This is a result of protein loss which is a building-block for your hair.
- Hair loses its pigment and turns grey or white. This may be simply a factor of time or genetics so it can’t be prevented. Other causes include stress, lack of a healthy diet, illness and medication.
Changes in your hair are inevitable but the good thing is there are steps we can take to rejuvenate and restore it to its more youthful, radiant crowning glory.
