A new study has found that women are more content, satisfied and fulfilled in their forties than at any earlier age, with some even feeling ten years younger than they actually are. 55% of the women tested said that they felt more confident in their appearance than when they were in their thirties. Add to that the fact that a whopping 86% of the women tested insisted that 40 is now the new 30, and it’s clear that older women are a pretty confident bunch.
Fabulous at Forty
Appearance is, of course, a big deal to many women, and of the 2,000 women between 40 and 65 years old who were quizzed, 81% said that they were happier in themselves than younger women. However, whilst a healthy lifestyle can go far to ensuring a healthy mind and body well into middle age, hair loss is less easy to anticipate and solve by changes to diet and routine.
80% of women will experience some degree of noticeable hair loss by the time they reach the age of 60. Whereas hair loss in men usually appears as thinning on the crown or a receding hairline, female pattern hair loss usually appears as a general thinning atop the scalp, and as this can be fairly gradual, many women do not realise they are losing hair until their scalp begins to show through.
Feeling 30? Get The Hair, Too
Because Propecia, the well known treatment for male pattern baldness, is only available to men, women could be forgiven for thinking their hair loss cannot be treated. However, there is one more medication that has been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA (the UK and US’s medical regulatory bodies) for use as a hair loss treatment, and this one can be and is used by many women to great effect: take a look at our success story blog for many examples.
Minoxidil, the only proven hair loss medication for women, is applied directly to the thinning areas on the scalp in a liquid formulation. For stubborn cases of hair loss, a high strength minoxidil cream can yield great results, and as Belgravia pharmacy combine their minoxidil solution with ingredients that appear to block DHT, the androgen that causes pattern hair loss, all angles are covered.
Only The Best For Your Hair
Minoxidil may be the only proven way to treat the loss itself, but an effective hair loss treatment plan also combines other elements to ensure that hair is kept healthy and looking at its very best.With regular check-ups to chart progress, and a variety of hair growth boosters that can be easily integrated into your daily routine and can make a real difference to the health and appearance of your hair.
