Well, its natural to lose hair with growing age. Our skin and hair are a lot dependent on our everyday diet. Right intake of Vitamin A will help promote the growth and health of cells and tissues throughout the body, including the hair. Some good food sources include carrots and green leafy vegetables.Some animal sources are eggs and fish oil. Good Luck.

You should not wash your hair everyday, you should wash it ever other day if you can. It's also natural to loose hair with growing age.

Inneov by L'Oreal (available only in Europe but she can order it online) will help to thicken hair and prevent greying. Copper supplements will also help with premature greying. Iron supplements can really help women with hair loss if iron defieciency is the cause in the first place. At your mom's age her problem could be perimenopase a hormonal change which occurs in the mid to late 40s. A collagen supplement can help her to keep the hair she has and can alos greatly diminish shedding.

Use toppik!! It will hide her hair loss, and look amazing!! My friend burnt her hair at a salon , and so she had to use Toppik until it grew back. Also if she's having a lot of hair loss, maybe she could see a doctor, just to make sure there's nothing wrong? and than take it from there.Best of luck!

Although it is quite true to lose hair with the growing age but there are few remedies to your hair that you can adopt.Drinking plenty of water and eating plenty of raw fruits and vegetables is probably the best way of achieving hair growth.Vitamins B,C,F,Zinc,iron,copper and protien are essential for hair growth.Massage the oil of arnica, marigold, rosemary and southernwood into the scalp. It is very useful in preventing hair loss. aloe vera shampoo when combined with wheat germ oil and coconut milk makes a gel that promotes hair growth.

In her case due to the extensive hair loss she needs to see a doctor to rule out an hormonal imbalance or underlying illness. Normal hair loss is a few strands per day but not "huge amounts".

I agree. Having ferritins levels checked is important because most women suffering from hair loss have low ferritin levels. But at 45, it's most likely a hormonal issue and some bloodwork will determine the best course of action.

My sis was having the same issue, she blamed it on being too stressed out at work. It turned out to be a possible deficiency in iron. She started taking iron pills (low dose) -in higher concentrations it can cause constipation and eating more foods with iron like beans. She noticed the difference within a month. -Worth a shot  ;)

Dear Rob, its very normal to shed hair in this age, however if taken proper care and by using of correct hair product will sort it out. I too after my pregnancy went through this phase. Then i started using ayurveda products, which helped me out. You need to know what product will suit your mother's hair type.

 

I have been using Lass Naturals IHT9 oil,conditioner & shampoo, and i am a satisfied user. I stopped loosing my hair, it has sarted growing back again. It has all natural products & no harsh chemicals are used. 100% vegetarian too. Try it ans see the change. Also remeber along with using the correct hair product you need to keep your diet right and do not take stress.

My hair has been falling out a lot lately, and I already know I am anemic, so I started taking a prenatal vitamin about a week or so ago and it's not falling out quite as much as it was, so I am hoping that it will continue to help.

I definitely agree with @@CajunKitty, if this is alot of hair coming out, maybe try and help get her checked out. ;)

 

Also, it might be iron deficiency like @@Nicky Valentino said, but if you didn't want to use pills or meds, maybe try eating tons of meat, it helps lift the level of protein and iron intake. ;)

 

All the best Buddy. Let us know how she gets soon. :)

Everyone loses hair. It is normal to lose about 50-100 hairs every day. If you see bald patches or lots of thinning, you may be experiencing hair loss.  The most common cause of hair loss in men is androgenic alopecia, the early stages of which can be slowed or reversed with medication, while more advanced cases may be amenable to hair transplantation. Luckily, most causes of hair loss can be stopped or treated. Anyone troubled by hair loss should see a dermatologist.

Well, it is the hormonal changes that are taking place and resulting huge hair loss. In this case, you should use olive oil only. Massage with olive oil everytime before taking a head bath. If it doesn't suit then, time to go to some doctor.

Your mom should definitely see a doctor first and foremost. My mom was having the same issue, among others, and it turned out to be an autoimmune illness. When you lose a lot of hair really fast, it's usually due to something going on INSIDE, not outside.

 

In the meantime she should be very gentle. She can start by washing her hair less often, using cool water, and avoiding shampoos/products with citric acid (this causes hair loss/irritation for some people).

A dry shampoo, and a cut that allows gentle finger-combing, are two potential ways to help a little -- but I agree with the others. Get your Mum to a doctor, stat.

 

Perimenopause is often a source of hair loss, because the hormonal changes don't just cause hot flashes and mood swings -- there are actually larger biological changes that go with it, and all too often, women of this age need supplements of various kinds. I'm on calcium + D myself for just this reason. Sometimes women need hormone replacement -- androgen in particular is important for hair growth. The gray is something she may have to live with until any underlying medical issues are resolved -- hair dye is an irritant to the scalp, no matter how good it is.

Protein is important to strengthen hair and promote growth. The recommended daily amount is about two to three 3-ounce servings of meat or a combination of four to five servings of dairy and beans.

Has your mum been to a doctor? I heard that prenatal pills help, and try castor oil too.

 

Personally I use Sara Shantelle's Head CPR since I've been losing hair since early 30s. Been using it for a few years now and I can visibly see changes, my hair looks thicker and healthier now

Go to the vitamin store and get karatene. I had hair thinning after losing too much weight too quickly and it restored my hair completely.

Perhaps more than any other single feature, your hairstyle contributes to the image you project to others. When a person experiences significant hair loss, it can be damaging to his or her self-esteem. There are several types of hair loss that can occur, and there may be a variety of factors involved, including genetics, medications, disease, and cancer treatments. Fortunately, there are a number of hair loss restoration and prevention treatment options currently available for individuals with thinning hair.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
