Hair is important to all individual, otherwise, why would we spend so much time and effort in styling them. We humans take pride in our hair, but also take it for granted. So, what do you do when you notice a receding hairline? Do not freak out, changes in the hair are normal, especially when you get into your 40s. Hair is the reflection of what is going inside the body and as you age, it goes through transitions and hair thinning is one of them. However, this does not mean that you cannot do anything about it.
There are certain measures you can take as well as undergo regrowth treatments.
Hair Care Tips
Change the shampoo
Once you start seeing changes in your hair, especially dryness or flaking, the first thing to do is change your shampoo with a ketoconazole one. Tackling dry scalp will not only get rid of the flakes on your shoulder but help control hair loss as well.
As you age, the natural oils from the scalp decrease, thus it is important to moisturise the hair to keep it looking at its best. Never forget to use a conditioner after you shampoo your hair. However, ensure that you use a water-based lightweight conditioner.
Have a nutritious diet
As you age, changes in hair quality are normal and usually related to changes in the body. However, if you see drastic changes like rapid shedding, it could be a sign of a larger issue. For good quality hair and reduce hair fall, have a nutritious diet supplemented with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory foods.
Add oil back in
Even with regular conditioning, if your hair dries out quickly, we recommend using a deep conditioning mask. You can make one at home or buy one from the shop. The mask replenishes moisture and locks in natural oils. You can also massage your scalp with coconut or argan oil once a week.
