As we age, our bodies endure subtle changes. While we may feel some effects of aging, there are many changes on a cellular level that are not readily seen. Many of the most apparent signs of aging are noticed in the skin and hair. As people age, they gradually begin to notice changes such as wrinkles and dark spots and scalp and hair issues, including thinning hair or hair loss. Many of these unwanted signs of aging happen because of a decrease in natural antioxidants in our bodies.

You probably know that some hair loss is normal, as your hair follicles go through the normal process of growing, shedding, and resting. This growth cycle means everyone loses 50 to 150 hairs on a daily basis. If you feel your hair loss is abnormal, it is important to discover the underlying cause in order to find the needed solution. Hair loss can be the result of a poor diet, a hormonal imbalance, an illness, medication, stress, or even over-styling. Each of these or a combination of these can result in a disruption of your hair’s normal growth cycle and ultimately prevent new hair growth.
