Aging can cause a lot of changes in the entire body. Your hair is also one aspect that gets affected with aging. The amount of hair loss is governed largely by genetics. All people experience hair loss due to aging. With aging hair starts thinning and falling out. New hair replaces lost hair, but as one ages this happens less and less.

It is normal to lose hair. One loses around 100 hair each day. A natural sign of aging is thinning hair and hair loss. Hair loss is less common in females when they are young, but the numbers are still comparable with that of male hair loss.

In individuals, who are genetically predisposed, the condition results by the production of an enzyme. This enzyme converts the male hormone, testosterone into a derivative, known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The high amount of DHT causes hair follicles to shrink. The new hair that is grown also shrinks. This process continues till hair becomes so small that is it is not visible.

Age related hair loss can be reversed if the scalp has not become totally bald and follicles have not died. It is possible to prevent hair loss and grow lost hair with various home remedies and hair treatments.

Don't let your diet damage your hair. ... Aging hair, like other signs of aging, is due to our bodies' inability to renew and regenerate cells as quickly as when we were younger. But menopause is another common cause of hair loss in older women.
