"Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, life gives you the face you have at thirty but it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty," once said Coco Chanel. And the beauty lovers that we are, we couldn’t agree more!
While we may be a result of how we choose to treat and pamper ourselves age too has an incredible impact on our skin and hair! Like any other aspect of beauty, your hair too changes with your age. And all you can do about it is develop a hair care routine around these changes and age gracefully.
To do that, it is important for you to know how you hair evolves through the years. Let’s take a look at how your hair age…
When in your 20's
You are going to have serious hair issues in your 20's. It is the time to experiment and fail or experiment and excel. It is the time you are carefree and do mistakes. But this is the period when your hair will probably be the best as you are at the peak of youth. Your hair shafts will be thicker, your hair stands will be thicker and you will have a dense volume. Amidst all this, natural hormonal boost you would also be too lazy to care for your hair.
When in your 30's
As the cycle goes up and you are in your 30's your duties and commitments towards life increases. You might have a family or children to look after with your career flourishing on the other hand. In this period most people undergo through natural stress and hormonal changes that cause hair thinning and hair loss. During your pregnancy, there is a boost in progesterone levels and your hair becomes shiny and thick. This is followed by them turning dull and brittle after two months of childbirth.
When in your 40's
Your 40's is the busiest period in your life. All your professional and personal responsibilities have doubled and you hardly have any time for yourself. Your hair turns dry and brittle and might even break. This is when your hair naturally starts turning grey. If your hair turns grey before your late 30's or early 40's it is due to hormonal changes or chemical exposure. If you colour or bleach your hair regularly, it can cause additional problems that will make your hair prone to damage.
When in your 50's
Your 50's are a life-altering period. Your hormonal cycles again go through a drastic change as they did in your early teens. Your menstrual cycles begin to become irregular and then eventually stop. Your hair might turn completely grey by the start of your 50's and you also might experience balding in a few regions of your scalp.
