Hair Through Menopause ○ Our Changing Hair
For women, hormonal changes also affect hair growth. It's common for menopausal women to concurrently experience hair thinning and hairloss. We understand that this time is uncomfortable in so many ways, and though the jokes, media, and even loved ones poke fun, we are here to help, to be kind and gentle, to give some relief while so many things are changing. Though tough to hear, we're here to make it a little easier as you make your way into your next feminine identity, and not only get there, but do so looking GREAT!
Okay, so hair follicles get smaller as we age. This produces hair that is not as visible, and because it is often times finer, we tend to look thinner or more balding. The thinner hair also breaks faster.
Our shampoos minimize breakage by gently cleansing the hair and scalp of cosmetic residue, and prepare hair for maximum conditioning for super strength and luxurious shine.
Hair goes grey when cells stop producing pigment. Grey hair's texture is a bit different than naturally colored hair. Some hair goes fine and thin, others go coarse and wiry, and yet others go to a mixed curl or wiry combination. When colored, grey hair frequently looks wiry or lacks youthful silky texture and a vibrant shine and our shine ingredients work to spark the shine from the inside out. This is a distinct shine vs. a shine from conventional products that coat the hair to create a reflective (oily/greasy) look. Instead our shine molecules are infused to create an inner glow in hair. If you color, fine, but if you don't want to color, you can look vibrant and youthful again with your newly found sparkle and shine in your naturally grey/white/silver hair!
Oil glands can change and sometimes, even shrink over time. They do not produce oil as efficiently. When younger, our natural oil travels down each hair's follicle, and naturally coat the hair. As menopause progresses, many changes can take place including the amount and composition of the sebaceous follicles' oils. This could lead to dryer hair and/or texture changes. If this is the case for you, you will want to return natural oils and balance your scalp. All Belegenza products are designed to balance your scalp and follicles for the best hair and growth possible. To get started, now, begin with our IlLustrious Shampoo & Cleanser and RoMANce Deep Conditioner, to create the perfect foundation for your hair and scalp to do what it does best...grow perfect hair!
With age, hair can lose elasticity and flexibility, leaving your hair brittle. However dry, brittle hair could also be related to the hair products, and less to aging.
Hair that undergoes repetitive chemical treatments, for example shampoo with sulfates, bleaches, straighteners, or dyes has an impact. It makes the hair stiffer, dryer, and results in more breakage. RoMance Deep Conditioning Treatment once a week revives hair, and bring it back to a "pliable" softness that responds and simply looks and feels great. P.S. "They" will reach out to touch your hair! ....We warned you!
Wiry, Coarse, Mixed Texture
Whether you keep your hair grey, or color it, wiry, mixed textures can sometimes seem less than refined. Grey hair tends to shine less due to the lack of reflective color pigments, and coupled with an uneven texture, it may appear dull or matte. We recommend Belegenza's Styling Aids made from natural ingredients to help balance your hair. Simply Smooth Humidity Blocker is a miracle on wiry textures to add softness over time!
