Anti-Aging. Every time I hear those two words, I immediately think of skincare treatments. There are plenty of anti-aging products to prevent sagging skin, to conceal the lines around your eyes, to minimize the wrinkles on your forehead, to even out the tone of your skin, to lighten dark spots, and so on, and so on. Seriously, there are so many anti-aging skincare products, I could go on talking about them forever!
But did you know there are anti-aging products for your hair, too? Ahem, Women’s ROGAINE© Foam. I mean, I knew that hereditary hair loss or hair thinning was a ‘thing’, but I didn’t really realize you could do something about it. Here’s a few key facts about hereditary hair thinning/hair loss:
–It is not uncommon. Up to 42% of women will notice some hair loss in her lifetime. (Source: Gallup 2014)
–Among women who experience hair thinning, 76% of women start to notice after the age of 30. (Source: Gallup 2014)
–Contrary to common belief, the leading cause of hair loss among women is genetics or Hereditary Female Pattern Baldness (90% of cases); not stress. Hereditary hair loss can come from the mother or father’s side of the family.
–If left untreated, hair thinning/loss can worsen over time; women can lose one-sixth of their hair density in a period of 10 years!
Yes – the statistics sound a little scary. But you can do something about it. I recently chatted with celebrity hair stylist and Women’s ROGAINE© spokesperson, Jill Crosby, who offered some advice and tips about hereditary hair loss/thinning:
What’s Haute: At what age do most women begin to notice hereditary hair loss or thinning?
Jill Crosby: Hair loss can unfortunately begin as early as twenty-something, in some cases even younger. It can peak again in your 40s.
WH: Do environmental and dietary factors affect hair loss?
JC: Yes, diet and environment are always to be factored into the equation as our bodies operate as a whole, so everything from pollution to nutrition can contribute. However, if you have hereditary hair loss, that is something that is passed down through your mother’s or father’s side of the family.
WH: What are the top 3 ways to prevent or treat thinning hair?
JC: Preventing hair loss isn’t always something women can do. Sometimes it’s hereditary and that calls for a treatment routine such as Women’s ROGAINE© Foam. However, you can help diagnose her situation by assessing her circumstances and see where and if changes can be made. Is there too much stress? Are you taking a new prescription? Are you in a new environment? Have you changed your diet? Are you exercising? You can gain control and help manage hair loss with this type of inventory and by making needed changes to reduce causes and implement the best treatments. You should also consult with a doctor/dermatologist who can better assess your symptoms to help determine the type of hair loss you have and work with you to develop a treatment plan to fit your needs and lifestyle.
Both dermatologists and hairstylists recommend Women’s ROGAINE® as the #1 brand for hair regrowth. Women’s ROGAINE® 5% Minoxidil Topical Aerosol is the first and only FDA-approved once daily treatment, and it helps prevent further thinning by regrowing fuller, thicker hair. According to Jill, Women’s ROGAINE® is “an easy addition for thinning hair – to get back thickness and fullness from younger years.” Just apply it directly to your scalp once a day, every day. Most women will start to regrow thicker, fuller hair in just 12 weeks, with hair growing in up to 48% thicker than before. Plus, it’s perfectly okay to use on color-treated hair and with styling products!
