The 20s are called the prime years for a reason. You can binge eat and still manage to lose weight. You can pull an overnighter and yet not feel tired that day. But enter the 30s, and some of you might see some changes! For some, metabolism slows down. Suddenly, it becomes hard to lose weight. For others, late night parties seem less exciting because of the next day’s fatigue. But what hits people the most is that their hair is no longer the same. As you progress into your 30s, some of the signs of aging such as graying of hair and dullness start to show up. Here are some common hair concerns that women face in their 30s:
- Change in natural hair color: Hair gets its color due to the presence of a pigment called melanin, which hair follicles produce. With aging, the follicles make less melanin, and this causes gray hair. For most people, graying often begins in their 30s. It starts with natural color becoming lighter, eventually turning white.
- Hair loss: Hair is made of many proteins. A single hair has a normal life between 2 and 7 years. That hair then falls out and is replaced with a new strand of hair. With age, the rate of hair growth slows down as many hair follicles stop producing new hair. Often in their 30s, women start seeing the first signs of what is called female-pattern baldness. Hair becomes less dense and the scalp may become visible.
- Change in texture: The texture of the hair does naturally change with age. Significant textural changes depend on many factors, for instance, childbirth, hormonal imbalance, inadequate diet, and stress. Most women in their 30s complain of dry and frizzy hair.
- Color damaged hair: Though colored hair can make women look trendy and cool, the chemicals in hair dyes can leave lasting effects on the health of the hair. Permanent hair colors use hydrogen peroxide to help cuticles absorb the color. In this process, the hair cuticle is damaged which in turn causes hair breakage. Women who have been coloring their hair in their 20s a lot may experience in their 30s that their hair is prone to brittleness and breakage. The hair colors not just damage hair strands they can also wreak havoc on the scalp, leaving it dry and flaky. Dryness is a common scalp concern women in their 30s complain about.
