Hair undergoes several changes as we age:

1. Textural changes. Hair can change from soft and silky to coarse and frizzy because of both genetics and/or hormonal shifts. Thinning hair is also common with age.
2. Dryness. A lack of moisture and elasticity can result in dry, brittle hair that’s prone to breakage.
3. Gray hairs. As we age, hair loses pigment, causing it to go gray-gray hair can be coarse and wiry, too,

What can you do to achieve ageless looking hair? Besides a visit to your hair stylist for an appropriate cut and color, load up on the essentials. Certain vitamins like A, B (biotin) and C, as well as folic acid, can do wonders for the hair. “The B vitamins are great for boosting the circulatory system. They also promote the hair to grow in thick, fast and strong,” says hair color export and New York salon owner, Beth Minardi. Foods like salmon, green vegetables, nuts, carrots and oysters are all rich in the vitamins and minerals necessary for strong, healthy hair.
