Hair aging in women: when white hair is no longer a source of stress
Because yes, having white hair after a certain age is completely normal. When the melanocytes - the cells containing melanin (the pigment which gives hair its color) run dry - the hair begins growing white. All women are affected to varying degrees. The appearance of graying hair is certainly linked to the natural hair aging process, but it is also a matter of heredity.
Loss of density, the dark side of aging of hair in women
The physiological process of aging combined with a decrease in female hormones has a progressive impact on growth rate and hair quality. There is also less blood micro-circulation in the scalp, and the hair root becomes deprived of oxygen and nutrients. In addition to this, there is the influence of external factors such as the sun, pollution, smoking, hairdryers, dyes, etc. Together, these elements accelerate the hair aging process.
But there is a solution! Every day you can take action to stimulate hair density and adopt an anti-aging hair care routine, just as you would for your facial skin.
