5 Top Tips for Luscious Locks Through Menopause

Menopause to some extent is about accepting change and embracing all we are as our hormones decline and bodies change. This is as important for our hair as it is for any other part of our body affected by declining hormones.

Read on for professional tips and tricks to restore confidence in your crowning glory and help reveal healthier menopause locks.

How can we maintain a luscious mane

  1. Lack of confidence through menopause, including confidence in how a woman sees herself in the mirror, is a recognised menopause symptom. A good hairdresser can help with guidance on hair maintenance and management, both in the salon and at home. This, for many women, can go a long way towards making them feel more self confident and less self conscious.
  2. A good conditioning regime is important to help with dryness and thinning caused by hormonal changes. Intensive conditioning treatments and products that strengthen the bonds of the hair can help, as can fish oils for dryness and collagen for thinning hair. Fine hair can be helped by not overloading it with products. Pre wash treatments can also help remove any residue that may be clinging to hair.
  3. The importance of good hydration and a healthy diet cannot be overstated. Drink plenty of water and eat the rainbow. Think about including eggs, nuts, sweet potato and spinach – all great hair foods.
  4. Be patient. The right products, salon care and nutrients take time to work. Collagen for example takes up to three months to start working to regularly replace what you have lost, so don’t give up if you don’t see results immediately.
  5. Well-nourished locks look great at any age so style and protect it well. If your hair is changing, go for a style that doesn’t need constant heat and let it dry naturally some days. When using heat products, invest in a protection spray, and when in the sun use a good SPF and wear a hat. It’s also wise to have regular patch tests as hair can respond differently to colouring.
