Have you noticed your hair is thinner than 30 years ago? If so, you’re not alone.
By middle age, most people’s hair becomes finer as the diameter of individual hair follicles, and the hair they produce, decreases. At the same time, when hairs fall out at the end of their life cycle, a higher percentage of follicles remain in their resting phase rather than reactivating to generate new hair.
Thinning hair and hair loss can be a devastating problem as we move on in years. I was reminded of this earlier today when talking to a lady at the station.
“Your hair looks lovely,” I said. The reply was, “Oh, it’s dreadful; it’s so thin now.” She then regaled me with her morning routine which sounded exhausting – but her hair did look nice.
Honesty has its advantages. You don’t have to remember who you said what to. You don’t have to back-peddle nearly as much. And when it comes to hair, you don’t have to chase that damn white stripe.
Searching the Internet for advice on hairstyles for women over 60 is somewhat of a depressing exercise. It’s easy to find pictures of celebrities at various red-carpet events.
