How to maintain your hair's health over time

It's no secret that as we age, our bodies change.

Our metabolism slows down, our body takes longer to recover from injuries, and hair growth slows down as well.
Because yes, our hair is also aging!
Here are some tips for having healthier hair at any age.

Why does our hair change as we age?
Our hair changes as we get older.
We experience an increase in hair loss. It becomes coarser, drier, and grayish.
The hair follicles can look brittle or dull even before they turn gray.
So why is this happening?
Hair texture, quality, and quantity change due to the decrease in oil production and hormonal changes.
As the number of melanocytes in our hair decreases, the color changes, and we lose our hair`s pigments, causing it to turn gray.
Our hormones change as we get older,
Because estrogen levels and natural oil production that lubricates the scalp hair follicles decrease over time.
So, some aspects of aging hair are inevitable. But- it is possible to get healthy hair at any age if you nourish your follicles from the inside out.
Nourish your body
One of the major factors affecting hair and scalp health is nutrition.
If you do not eat foods from "all colors of the rainbow" on a daily basis, your body may suffer from nutritional deficiencies that lead to increased hair loss, and a slowdown in hair growth.
Make sure you consume these key nutrients daily to keep your
hair happy and healthy:
Vitamin A- found in spinach, carrots, pumpkin and sweet potatoes
Vitamin B- found in whole grains, almonds and green leaves
Vitamin C- found in citrus fruits, strawberries, peppers and guavas
Vitamin D- found in mushrooms, tofu and milk
Vitamin E- found in avocados, almonds, spinach and sunflower seeds
Iron- found in lentils, black molasses, dried fruits and spinach
Zinc- found in pumpkin seeds, lentils, spinach and wheat grains
Protein- found in legumes and whole grains.

By enriching your daily diet with these key vitamins, you are helping your body support healthier hair and long-term hair growth.
Of course, in case you are unable to get all these vitamins in the recommended doses - you can always take Fill-it capsules!
Our capsules contain all the necessary vitamins (and much more) in the highest doses available.
Lower your stress levels
Stress affects your body at every level, and it can cause the early appearance of gray hair and hair loss. Although the connection between hair aging and stress is still being researched, experts agree that reducing your overall stress levels is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your overall health and well-being, including the health of your hair.
Here are some simple steps you can take to reduce stress:
Raising your heart rate is a very effective way to reduce anxiety.
Take a fun gym class like yoga or Pilates, or just go for a walk in your neighborhood.
Taking time to breathe and being present in the moment is the key.
Reduce screen time - We all love the internet, but spending too much time online (especially on social media!) Can be toxic for our mental health.
Taking the time to nourish your body and mind every day, will do good to your hair, your health, and your soul!
Heat damage
If you enjoy taking extra hot showers or using devices like straighteners as part of your hair styling routine, you may experience hair thinning.
We know that straightening and styling your hair with heat based products can be fun and satisfying, but they are your hair`s sworn enemy, especially as you age.
So how do you say goodbye to your favorite heat-based products? Do it step by step. The first thing you should do is to use the lowest heat possible.
Then, buy a heat-protective product and apply it to your hair every time you approach a heat source!
Reconcile yourself to the change
In the end, the best thing you can do for aging hair is to accept it.
Aging is a natural part of life! Fortunately, you can maintain nourished, beautiful hair by adjusting your beauty routine!
