It is normal to notice that some of your hair turns grey after age 35. The exact age of onset and the rate at which your hair grays will be determined by genetics and lifestyle factors such as overall health and stress levels.
As you get older, your scalp produces fewer natural oils that keep your hair moisturized and protected from the elements, causing your hair to appear and feel drier.
The thinning and balding associated with natural aging are among the most common sources of anxiety and low self-confidence we see as hair replacement professionals. This happens because, after age 35, the hormones in your body that stimulate hair follicles to produce hair are released in smaller amounts.
Hair growth will slow down as you age for similar reasons. When the rate of hair growth is slower than the rate of shedding (which happens all the time), you will notice your hair thinning.
Hair texture changes as we age occur for a variety of reasons. For starters, hormonal changes in the body (such as testosterone decreases in men) affect the texture of our hair as we age. Second, as hair greys, its texture becomes coarser and more fragile due to the altered chemical structure of each strand of hair.
