7 Tips for Healthy Menopause Hair
How Menopause Affects Hair
Mood swings and hot flashes are well documented as symptoms and issues of menopause.
So are tacky jokes, insults and down-right mean comments about women navigating a full-blown rehaul of their womanhood who are experiencing such mood swings, hot flashes and more.
Dull, dry, breaking and thinning hair with major changes in texture and volume are also being reported during menopause. This is caused by estrogen and progesterone levels decreasing, and testosterone increasing, thus wreaking havoc on moods, hair follicles, and ultimately self esteem, especially if hair is not quite up to snuff.
There are other factors that can contribute to lifeless, breaking, and thinning hair during menopause such as an unbalanced diet, high-stress levels, and illness. Before we show you our 12 Everyday Things that affect hair growth, let’s look at these 7 things to maintain your best healthy hair during menopause.
7 Tips for Healthy Hair During Menopause
1. Eat a nutrient-dense diet: Protein is important because it provides the amino acids that makeup keratin, which is the building block of your hair. Lean meats, beans, fish, eggs, dairy, kale, and asparagus are great sources of protein. If you are vegan, there are choices, yet stay away from soy. Otherwise, when you see your hair falling, you won’t be able to say we didn’t warn you.
Healthy fats, such as coconut, olive, and flaxseed, provide your body with long-chain polyunsaturated fats and linoleic acids which are necessary for hair structure. Notice soy oil is NOT in the healthy list. Fruits and vegetables are essential to provide a variety of nutrients such as vitamin c, vitamin a, vitamin b5, vitamin b12, folate, zinc, and niacin.
2. Add supplements: Take a multivitamin and mineral supplement daily for nutrients you didn’t get in your diet. For instance, zinc is important for hair growth and you can lose zinc in sweat. If you exercise a lot, then it is possible to be deficient in it. Also, if you are having any blood work done, aske them to check your magnesium levels (more than 300 processes in the body rely on sufficient magnesium levels and Americans are typically deficient).
3. Reduce stress: Large amounts of stress can use up nutrients, like B-Vitamins which are essential to healthy hair and hair growth. Also, stress pushes your hair follicles into the resting phase of the growth cycle causing your hair to shed and become thin. Also, corn syrup and sugars take loads of B-Vitamins to process, thus reducing B-Vit levels to alarming lows. So, don’t stress eat sugars on top of being stressed. Try yoga, meditation, exercising, and a scalp massage or put on some fantastic music and dance your stress out right there in your living room!
4. Exercise regularly: To help increase your spirits, maintain a healthy weight, and help you sleep better at night, maintain a good exercise regime. OR… at least stretch and get some flex and circulation going. Use it or lose it, so keep in mind that all of these things will help keep hormones balanced and promote healthy hair growth.
5. Stay hydrated: Your body is going to direct water to all of your vital organs first, then to your hair follicles. If you don’t consume enough water then your hair follicles will not receive any, which will result in dull, lifeless, dry, breaking hair. By the way…. coffee, tea, specialty waters don’t count. Pure clean water “rinses” your cells. So think of it this way if you are not sure about the beverage you are about to count as water. Ask: Would I shower in this? (Well, maybe a light champagne once in a while might be nice…..but you get the point!)
6. Avoid heat styling: Heat styling tools tend to dry out your hair as everyone knows. Especially if you use the tools on high heat. Limit your use of heat styling tools and always use the lowest heat setting possible. Tip: Just before applying the wand, or iron to your hair, rub the barrel on a damp washcloth to remove the collected heat that scorches the cuticle.
7. Nurture your menopause hair: Use natural, gentle, chemical-free hair products that will nourish your hair and scalp. And just because it says natural does not necessarily mean good for hair. Silicones are considered natural, yet they wreak havoc on hair and follicles. Get your list of avoids for free by clicking here now. Silicone AVOID List.
