Growing Older & Hair Changes
Why is my Hair Texture Changing as I Grow Older? As we grow older our bodies go through many changes that can affect our hair texture. Some of those things are childbirth, medication, hormones, etc.
Signs of aging hair are frizzy hair, dry hair, gray hair, thinning hair, breaking hair, and hair that does not grow as much. So how do you combat some of these issues?
First, let’s discuss what happens as we age. The sebum our scalp produces starts to decrease which causes our hair to get, frizzy, get thinner and break. The bonds of our hair also get weak and break easily causing our hair to suffer. So how do we combat the lack of sebum? We can use oils that help our hair. Jojoba oil is the oil that resembles the sebum our hair naturally produces the most. Using Jojoba oil helps keep the hair moisturized, it reduces frizz and helps with growth. We can also use products that help rebuild the bonds of our hair such as Olaplex products. As we age it is also important to be mindful of the brushes we use as they can be harsh on the hair. At the salon, we use Denman brushes, wide-tooth combs, and our fingers to detangle the hair.
It’s important to remember that our hair texture changing as we age is completely normal. We can take care of our hair to help make the process go smoother, but our hair will ultimately do what it is meant to do. Be patient with your hair and it will all be okay.
