How Your Hair Changes with Age

Oct 13, 2021

Women are often worried about the way their hair looks as they age. It can be hard to get used to not being able to have long locks or smooth, silky strands of hair anymore.

This is a topic near and dear to my heart because I’ve been dealing with these issues for quite some time now. There’s nothing like seeing your own reflection every day and realizing you’re getting older!

Hair becomes thinner and finer as you get older

Women have a lot to deal with as they age. The physical changes, the emotional changes, and the social changes are all significant factors in what we experience as we get older. One of these is our hair. From graying hair to thinning hair, aging affects how our hair looks and feels over time. Here are some things you should know about aging and your hair!

The hair on our head is an important part of our appearance. It frames the face, defines a hairstyle, and even communicates personal style. As we age, changes in hair may occur that can affect how it looks or feels.

Hair color changes with age

As we age, our hair color changes. The pigment in our hair is called melanin and it has a lot to do with how dark or lights your hair will be.  As you get older, the number of melanin increases which causes the pigment to change from red to black. This is why many Hollywood stars start off as blonde before eventually going gray or white later on in their careers.

The most common reason for this is going gray, but there are other reasons as well including hormonal changes; sun exposure; medication side effects; heredity; or an illness like alopecia or chemotherapy. This blog post will explore these different reasons and explain how to prevent them in order to maintain your natural hair color throughout your lifetime.

Hair color changes with age. The most common reason for hair to turn gray is when the melanocytes stop producing a dark pigment called eumelanin. As you get older, the cells that produce pigments may be damaged or destroyed by free radicals in the environment, which causes them to slow down the production of dark pigments and eventually stop producing any at all. This leads to thinning hair and gradual graying over time as you grow older.
