Healthy hair after 40 is attainable. I know during this time many women experience hair loss, thinning hair etc. We also have to talk about the use of extension, wigs, and weaves and how they affect hair growth as we age. If you are a consistent wig and weave wearer is it crucial that you take care of our hair underneath the various hair appliance. Some women are sensitive to synthetic hair, some are not, but the overuse of anything is bad. We must exercise caution at all times, as it pertains to anything that goes into, or on our bodies. Truth be told you don't have to be 40 plus to experience any of the above conditions such as baldness, thinning hair, or hair loss of any kind. We also see so many young women wearing extensions, and weaves at a very young age, so it is very important to stress how important it is to be healthy inside out, as well as manage stress to ward of diseases and ailments that can rob us of our crown.

One of the main issues facing women as it pertains to their hair type, is what products to use for their hair type.

The overall advice I would give to any woman, is to be healthy from the inside out, and manage stress. If you are healthy and stress free, your hair will grow, at any age. However, of you are ill, have to take OTC or prescription drugs on a regular basis, are stressed out all of the time, and have a nervous condition, then chances are your hair is telling what's going in your body as well. I recommend seeing an herbalist, or naturopathic doctor, a reputable one at that, to help you determine how to best care for your body the natural way. Above all, give yourself time to heal, focus on getting more rest, and the body will often times heal itself. Give it time. Even hair growth takes time, so don't stress!

I hope that this information has helped you to feel more confident about your hair especially as you experience a change in your life. The key is to love yourself through it all, and own your inner beauty, besides that's what matter most. How you feel about yourself often dictates how others feel about you. Please share this information with someone you know who feels insecure about aging, and how they feel about their hair as they age. Let them know that someone cares and understands what they are going through. Peace my loves!
