In this episode, Valerie shares five tips for caring for thinning hair after 50. She covers using a gentle shampoo, taking supplements like biotin and collagen, using volumizing products, switching up your part, and protecting hair from heat damage. Valerie also discusses brands like Nioxin and Nutrafol for hair loss solutions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Around 50% of women over 50 experience some degree of hair thinning or loss. It can be caused by hormonal changes, menopause, genetics, and other factors.
  • Use a gentle shampoo and conditioner formulated for fine or thinning hair, without harsh sulfates and chemicals. Brands like Nioxin and Neutrophil have options.
  • Take supplements like biotin, collagen, vitamin D, iron, and zinc to support healthy hair growth. Neutrophil is a holistic supplement that contains these.
  • Volumizing mousses, root-boosting sprays, and styling creams can add lift and fullness to thinning hair. Focus on massaging into the roots and crown.
  • Switch up your regular part to cover up wider or thinner spots. Use colored root powders like Topik or Xfusion to fill in thin areas.
  • Protect hair from heat damage which can increase breakage and thinning. Allow hair to air dry, use thermal protectants, and minimize hot tools.
