Many of us notice changes in our hair as we age. Hair can become thinner in men and women, and it can also become more dry and brittle. Try these natural tips to maintain hair thickness and health.

Saw Palmetto is a well-studied herb used extensively for enlarged prostate in men. Saw palmetto is known to block the formation of the hormone DHT that is linked to male pattern baldness. It is generally taken in extract or tincture form.

Licorice also contains a compound that prevents the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Medicinal plant expert James A. Duke recommends that balding men add this herb to their favorite shampoo.

Rosemary is an age-old remedy for healthy hair. Rosemary essential oil is often used, diluted in oil, for nightly scalp massages to increase circulation and stimulate hair growth. An infusion of rosemary can also be used as a rinse after shampooing.

Horsetail has a high silica content and is included in many hair formulas. It’s also sometimes used in the treatment of enlarged prostate. Note: Horsetail should not be combined with regular alcohol consumption.

Nettle is rich in minerals that promote good circulation to the scalp and is used in Europe to help prevent balding. It can be taken as a tea or tincture.
