I don’t know about you, but when we hit our 40s, all of a sudden it’s like our hair wouldn’t grow longer than 10 inches. Are we doomed to spend the rest of our lives with shoulder-length locks? Not necessarily! Read on for tips on how you can support healthier hair growth.

#1 Avoid Breakage

Many women who search for answers about how to grow back their healthy hair hear about a common misconception dubbed “terminal length.” This is the misbelief that our hair can only ever grow out to a certain length, but this has less to do with genetics and more to do with how we care for our hair.

If you find that your hair won’t grow out past a certain length, it is most likely due to breakage. The key to growing your hair after 40 is to pay extra special attention to the things you might be doing that are compromising the structure of the hair cuticle, causing strands to break, split, fry, or otherwise look less than healthy.

Examples of things that can lead to breakage would include exposure to chemical styling products, heat tools, and poor nutrition.

#2 Use a Scalp Serum

A scalp serum, like the one from Better Not Younger, that is specially formulated to give hair the nutrients it needs as we age, will prove essential in your journey to healthy-looking hair. This serum, in particular, contains scalp-stimulating ingredients like caffeine and ginger to strengthen hair follicles and promote healthy hair growth.

When choosing a serum, always seek a formula that is light, easily absorbed, easy to apply, and non-greasy so that you can use it daily without anyone being able to see the product in your hair. These serums are best used at night when they can be fully absorbed into your hair and scalp.

#3 Watch What You Eat

What we eat affects every part of your body, inside and out. So, if you are neglecting your diet, you are surely going to see some results in your hair. In fact, your nails, skin, and hair are some of the first places that will show with poor nutrition. Think about it: chapped lips, brittle nails, and dry skin are all results of poor nutrition. Your hair can be affected in similar ways by growing thinner, duller, and breaking sooner.

Your nutritional needs will vary depending on your age, any health conditions you have, and other factors. If you’re like most people, you aren’t getting enough vitamins and minerals and you may be overeating or under-eating certain macros (like fats and carbs). Speak to a nutritionist for guidance on a balanced diet to benefit your whole body.

Hair often plays a central role in a woman’s overall appearance and self-confidence. It is deeply rooted in her identity and self-esteem and when she finds telltale clumps in the shower drain, she may feel a profound sense of despair. This is especially true for women over 40, for whom hair loss may seem like an irreversible and inevitable sign of aging.

When you reach 40-plus, your hair thins, and the reasons why this happens vary. Your ethnicity and genetics play a significant part; however, as time catches up, the quality of your hair changes. Hair cortex protein levels drop, follicle sizes contract, cuticle layers diminish, and you are left with fine or wispy hair.
