Hair Loss in Women: Hair loss in men occurs secondary to the influence of male hormones such as testosterone and testosterone derivatives which affect sensitive hair follicles. In women there is a change in hormonal balance with age causing relatively higher testosterone levels that influence hair density and texture. Medical conditions such as thyroid levels also affect hair growth.

Curly hair after 60: Grey hair itself has a different composition and structure than your natural color and this can produce irregularities in the hair which make it appear curly as well.
