In brief: 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.

Stress can cause hair "loss"; telogen effluvium to be exact which occurs when the body hair becomes thinner and more fragile as reaction to stress; which may be perceived as hair loss. Usually occurs from dealing with 60 yr old men...

In brief: 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.
