When a woman turns 40, a lot of things can start happening with the body. It can be harder to lose weight, fine lines can deepen into wrinkles, reading glasses become a necessity and you can experience thinning hair. Nearly 50 percent of women will experience some sort of hair loss by age 50. The cause could be any number of things, ranging from lifestyle (always pulling those tight ponytails) to hormones to dietary deficiencies or even dramatic life events.

But the picture of middle age needn’t be so bleak! Another camp touts that 40 is the new 30 and that 40 is fabulous! That’s how we prefer to think of it.

As we look at the bright side, there are many solutions available to help with hair loss:

-As we discussed earlier this month, a healthy diet including lean proteins is very important for healthy hair.

Laser hair therapy works for most women experiencing androgentic alopecia (male­pattern baldness) by stimulating the hair follicles and increasing blood supply to the scalp. This can increase hair strength and elasticity and promote fuller, thicker ­looking hair. It also stops the progression of hair loss in 85 percent of patients.

-We carry the Mediceuticals line of dermatological hair treatment solutions specifically formulated for repairing and protecting extreme cases of dry, damaged, fragile, fine and thinning hair. These products promote beautiful, healthy, virgin hair quality. These solutions feature a patented enzymatic protein for optimum repair, protection and health.
