Caring for your hair during the menopause

The menopause can be an extremely stressful time for many women. Weight gain, raging hormones, forgetfulness and hot flushes are all classic signs that define this life stage.

To add to this turbulent transition, our once luscious locks can become dull, thinning and lifeless. All a result of falling levels of estrogen and hormone imbalances. This can leave us feeling less confident and stressed about our looks, adding to this already anxious time.

A deterioration in hair is a well recognised side affect of hitting the menopause but thankfully, there are things we can do to counter these symptoms. Following a healthy diet with a good balance of carbs and protein will help to balance out hormone levels.

Regular cuts and styling

Your confidence at this time can really take a knock and it is important that your hair is well styled and cut regularly. Prioritising this ritual will really help to ensure your hair stays in good condition and is key to keeping it look it’s best. And it’s a bit of well-deserved time out for you too!

Quality hair care products

Buying the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair is vital. Professional shampoos and conditioners are a great investment. They contain products and ingredients that nourish and care for the hair and can be bespoke prescribed just for you. As hair becomes dryer during the menopause, regular conditioning treatments can really help to replenish this moisture.

Hair Jelly supplements

This effective nutritional supplement contains a rich source of essential amino acids, the building blocks of keratin, the protein that hair is made up of. The protein nutrients in the capsules are absorbed by the body and get into the hair follicle via the normal digestion process. Hair Jelly is designed specifically to help fine, thinning and weak hair, encouraging hair and nails to grow stronger and healthier.
