Dermatologist Jaishree Sharad outlines the link between ageing and developing hair problems.
Following a healthy diet can help improve hair health
There is no dearth of tips as well as products in the market which ensure hair health. While a strand of grey hair or hair thinning can make people conscious, it isn’t always necessary that a major health problem is a culprit. At times it might be just because of your age. Dermatologist Jaishree Sharad shares that just like the skin, the hair also showcases signs of ageing. Some of these indicators, according to the expert are hair thinning, hair loss, hair turning curly or frizzy even grey. Reduced hair thickness and hair length also indicate ageing.
In a recent Instagram post, Jaishree Sharad explains how ageing accompanied by a poor lifestyle leads to a number of hair problems.
She says, “As we age, follicles produce less melanin due to which our hair starts to lose its colour and turns grey. Fewer hair follicles are produced which leads to hair thinning.”
Along with this, the expert reveals reasons why hair shows early signs of hair ageing. The list includes stress, unhealthy diet, smoking, environmental factors, various hair treatments, hormonal imbalance, and nutritional deficiency.
Wondering what the solution is? Jaishree Sharad suggests simply “accept the truth and consult a dermatologist.”

Starting with identifying the cause, the expert advises people to get their blood tests done, along with getting hormonal levels, and nutritional deficiencies checked. Jaishree Sharad also advises consuming a good amount of protein in the diet. An equal focus should be given to the consumption of vitamin A, B, C, D, E, magnesium, selenium, iron, copper, zinc, and amino acids as well. She says that one should learn to cope with stress, and avoid using too many heat styling treatments.
