Far less talked about than male pattern baldness, is the uncomfortable issue of women’s thinning hair after 40. Ladies don’t like to admit to thinning hair, but it’s a common part of aging and there are plenty of ways to stimulate hair growth and add volume to your hair at any age.

Female hair loss is not uncommon, with 50% of all women experiencing it at some point in their lifetime. Hormonal changes, aging hair follicles, illness, genetics, diet, and stress can all impact your hair growth.

Here are a few ways you can get and maintain your thickest, healthiest hair:

Eat More Protein - A healthy diet is essential to great hair. Your body needs protein and iron for maximum hair regrowth. So load up on lean meats like fish, poultry, beans, and greek yogurt. Watch your iron levels as anemia can lead to shedding hair.

Stress Less - Physical and emotional stress both lead to hair falling out faster than it can be replenished. Find ways to relax and reduce your stress levels. Workout, meditate, or simply take time out for yourself to rest and heal.

Use Essential Oils - Rubbing your scalp with natural hair oils can help moisturize and add shine back to your hair. You can combine essential oils like rosemary, peppermint or lavender with natural oils like jojoba or grapeseed for the best results.

Be Kind To Your Hair - Overhandling is one of the worst offenders when it comes to hair loss. We subject our hair to rough combing, high heat and many chemicals throughout our lifetime. Find a new hair routine that includes more natural elements and fewer hot tools so that your hair has the opportunity to repair itself.

It takes time for your hair to increase in length and volume, so while you wait you can also use our volumizing products to add lift and bounce.

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.
