Just like our skin, our hair changes with age.
Hair follicles spend less time in the active growth phase, which makes hair strands look shorter and finer.
In addition to this, the hair becomes less dense on the top of the head and the edges of the forehead, hairline and temples. The hair also begins to produce less melanin, which leads to graying.
The decrease in estrogen and progesterone in women as they age reduces the production of sebum from the scalp and, as a result, the hair is drier and more fragile.

Just as we change our skincare as we age, it’s important to change our haircare as well and make sure we’re truly nourishing the hair and helping it to be as strong and healthy as possible.
Here are the products you should try and incorporate into your routine to keep your hair looking its best.
Hair density treatment
As mentioned, our hair may begin to thin as we age. Although this is completely normal and happens to most of us, if you already have fine hair, this may be a cause for concern.
Nioxin Night Density Rescue is a leave-in night treatment that is clinically proven to increase hair density and fight hair loss. This antioxidant hair serum leaves your scalp refreshed and suitable for all hair types, but especially those suffering from thinning and/or hair loss. You can buy it for €57.10 here.
A high quality brush
The right hairbrush means everything. You need one that has high quality bristles and won’t pull or damage the hair.
The Manta brush was developed by hairstylist Tim Binnington for his wife, who had lost her hair during the illness and wanted a soft brush for her growing hair. It conforms to the shape of your hand and your scalp as the bristles glide through the hair, resulting in shiny locks and gently massages the scalp to promote healthy hair growth. Buy it here for €36.
Another interesting and more affordable option is the Jewel brush from King Hair and Beauty. Dual bristles and a vented curved head mean this brush glides comfortably over hair and scalp, and it’s actually gentle enough for kids’ hair, hair extensions, hairpieces, or dry, damaged hair. Buy it here for €14.95.
