Many women start noticing thinning hair in their 40s, and even start fighting gray hairs in their 20s. What gives? Approximately 80 percent of women will experience hair thinning or loss by the age of 60. That’s an alarmingly high number. While some cases are genetic, many cases are situational. This gives us a look into why we combat hair loss so much as women, especially those in their 40s-60s.
Stress causes hair loss
Period. It may be minor, it may be major, but mild to severe stress will have an impact on your hair. When we’re younger, this impact tends to be gray hairs. As we age, gray hairs are typically replaced by hair loss—and then those of us losing hair who were crying about gray hairs are suddenly sure that gray hair is better than no hair.
Women between their 40s and 60s tend to have more stress than younger women. Women in this age range are in the height of their careers (with more responsibility comes more stress), and may have several children—or even grandchildren! Being the amazing people we are, we somehow manage to power through it; sacrificing our hair’s health in the meantime.
How middle-aged women can combat hair loss
Currently, there’s no guaranteed solution for hair loss, or else we’d see more politicians on the cover of hair magazines. However, there are options, and the best one to date is still wigs and hair pieces. Wigs have come a long way since the early days of harsh lines and dull, fake-looking colors. Many modern wigs and hair pieces, especially human hair and high-quality synthetic wigs, are indiscernible against natural scalp hair.
They even provide the benefit of versatile styles. Have you ever wanted to try the ever-so-popular angled lob? Wigs give you the opportunity to try it without commitment. Even if you don’t wish to change your ‘do, there are so many wigs available today, you’ll be able to find one that looks just like it. So why wait?
