Ageing Scalp; Causes & Treatments
You probably have heard of ageing skin but what about ageing scalp? The scalp is the fastest ageing skin compared to any other on the body. It ages 12 times faster than the body skin and 6 times faster than facial skin.
With an ageing scalp, it becomes dehydrated and loses elasticity where it becomes more susceptible to scarring and inflammation. Circulation may also be affected due to lesser vessels, meaning that the hair does not get the optimal nutrients to thrive.
The hair grows on average about 1.25cm every month. When the scalp ages, this hair growth may be slowed down to as much as 80% or about 0.25cm. In other words, the new hair growth is unable to keep up with the ones shed, resulting in hair thinning or hair loss.
With all the hair covering the scalp, an ageing scalp may go unnoticed until the symptoms start showing, which can make it harder to take up early preventive care measures.
Causes of Ageing Scalp
Our scalp ages naturally with time as with our skin. However, this natural process can be sped up by various other factors such as;
- Decreasing levels of collagen
- Poor circulation
- Lack of essential nutrients
- Poor hair care routine
Although scalp ageing is a part and parcel of ageing and inevitable, there are still many effective ways to slow down the process and prevent other hair conditions from arising, especially if managed early.
