Normally and according to different ages, At the age of 20 to 30 the hair is healthy, strong, with shine, but we must not neglect it, at 30 we have already abused our hair with a few treatments, heat, etc … usually the first gray hairs come out and there is that time when we need to increase the cares, When the 40 comes the hair weakens, it becomes thinner, it has begun to age, it loses more quantity, it curls and it is advisable to make intensive treatments every so often.

Other possible causes of hair aging are hormonal problems, stress, excessive exposure to the sun and heat, abuse of treatments such as dyes, smoothing, discoloration … It is very normal for hair to deteriorate well before menopause, but after 40, because less estrogen is produced. But the hair does not age the same in men and women, as a rule, men’s hormones are active for longer, so the hair aging in them occurs of late, although they can be affected by other aspects and may become prone to alopecia or baldness .
