What happens when hair ages?

As hair ages, it undergoes a number of physical changes. Hair becomes thinner and more fragile, and its growth rate slows. Hair also loses its elasticity and shine, making it more susceptible to breakage and splitting.

Additionally, scales in the cuticle (the outer layer of the hair) can lift or break down over time, which can cause frizz and make hair more difficult to comb. External factors such as UV rays, excessive heat, chemicals and pollution can also accelerate hair aging.

To counteract these effects of aging, it is important to take care of your hair by using gentle, moisturizing hair care products, avoiding excessive heat, and protecting your hair from UV rays. A healthy, balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals can also help maintain healthy hair.
