Ageless Beauty: Better Hair Today than in Your 20s!

April 04, 2022

At Better Not Younger, we know that beauty isn't tied to age. So what does ageless beauty mean? When we think of ageless beauty for hair, it means timeless, confident style and hair that is strong and healthy. 

If you're like us, you probably put your hair through a lot in your youth! (Remember the ‘80s?) From heat styling with no heat protectant to harsh dyes to ignoring scalp care, we were rough on our hair. 

But by the time we're into our 50s and 60s, we've moved past those poor choices. We know what works for our hair, and we have a better sense of our own personal style. Now we're focused on timeless looks and maintaining the healthiest hair possible because we know that healthy hair is gorgeous hair! 

As women, one of our most common concerns is hair thinning with age. But thin hair doesn't have to be something we accept or feel insecure about! We can fight back by supporting our hair from root to tip. Read on to learn more about combating age-related hair thinning and other top hair issues we face with age, so you can achieve better hair today than in your 20s!

How to Increase the Anagen Phase of Hair Growth

December 06, 2021

The maximum length of time hair spends in the anagen phase, otherwise known as the active growth phase, varies from person to person depending mainly on genetics.

For example, an increase of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in our system during menopause leads to follicle miniaturization. 

When this happens, our once-healthy follicles start producing thinner, weaker hair. DHT and other issues can disrupt the growth phase for some of our strands, cause fragile hair and even result in permanent hair loss. But there are ways to counteract this issue and increase our hair's time in the active phase.
