If your hair is thinner than it used to be, especially around your temples or perhaps it falls out easier, maintain a healthy scalp by giving it a good brush to keep the blood circulating to your follicles. It might seem counterproductive when you see loose strands in your brush but scalp health is key.

Dull, dry hair

It's pretty common to notice your hair becoming duller and your scalp a little drier in your 40s. Create an optimum environment for healthy hair with a scalp care regime. Soothing and nourishing your scalp will help your hair maintain its moisture balance for softer, shinier hair - and no more worrying about flakes.
