Males Caring For Thin Hair Over 50

For those of us who are headed into our Golden Years, caring for thin hair over 50 can be challenging. The what, when, where, and how to take care of our hair is a big problem! Our hair is thinning, and we are looking for ways to look younger and feel better about ourselves.

There are many products on the market today that claim to help you with your problems. Some may work better than others, but they all have their pros and cons.

In this article I will discuss why hair begins to thin, and how males caring for thin hair over 50 can make their hair thicker and healthier.

How Do I Take Care Of My Hair After 50?

The first thing to understand is that our bodies change as we age. You may notice that your hair starts to fall out more easily or become brittle when once upon a time it was thick and full of life.

You may also notice that there are new growths on your scalp. These could come from dandruff or just plain old dry scalp. Either way, if you have these problems you need to take care of them right away so that they don't get worse!

What Age Does Hair Growth Stop In Males?

It's true! No matter how old we get, our hair follicles continue growing until they stop completely around age 30-35 years old. The average man loses about 100 strands per day naturally, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be bald at 35.

Does dry scalp cause baldness?

If you have a dry scalp, it's very important to see your doctor. There are a lot of people who think that they just have dry skin. But the problem may be much more serious than just dry skin.

If you’re experiencing bleeding, red patches, and/or sores on your head, this could be a sign of infection. These sores may need topical and internal medicine to cure. This is one case where you should definitely consult with the doctor before trying to self-medicate.

Dry scalp should be taken seriously, and prolonged neglect to your scalp can lead to thinning hair and eventually baldness.

IrvMika The Body & Hair Chef Recommendation: Try our Healthy Butter Cream for dry scalp and to moisturize dry hair.

Is Shampoo The Answer To Dry Scalp?

Yes, but you should only use natural shampoos designed for dry scalps. These products contain ingredients that condition and moisturize the hair follicles, which will help prevent dandruff from forming.

If you use a regular shampoo, it may irritate your scalp and cause more damage than good. Also, we recommend a scalp balm to soothe and heal the base of your head.


How To Strengthen Your Hair From The Inside Out

Hair thickens and grows faster when men over 50 take good care of their body. In other words, if you eat the right foods and drink plenty of water, your hair will become healthier and more attractive.

If you want to grow longer hair, choose foods that are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and E. You should also add iron, zinc, and proteins to your diet. Consider adding avocado, blueberries, nuts, seeds, fish, spinach, eggs to your daily meals.

Once your diet becomes more nutritious, you should start treating the hair and scalp with natural oils and herbs that promote healthier hair. You can enhance your appearance by using products specifically designed for hair growth.
