Intro to Menopause Hair Loss: What Not to Put in Your HAIR

As women transition through menopause, it’s very common to encounter a myriad of changes, both physiological and emotional.menopause hair loss

Amidst these shifts, hair loss can be a particularly distressing issue on top of the emotional stress that often seems out of the ordinary.

Many women seek solutions to bolster their thinning strands, often turning to various hair products, and in some cases will try just about anything to get some hair growth and thickness. 

However, not all products are created equal, and some may exacerbate the problem rather than alleviate it.

In this guide, we unveil the worst offenders that you should avoid putting in your hair during menopause.

Menopause Hair Loss: What Not to Put in Your HAIR

For those grappling with fine, thinning hair, the temptation to add volume and thickness is understandable, and completely normal. 

Yet, many common hair products marketed for this purpose contain ingredients that can be detrimental to hair health.

Among these ingredients are various forms of plastics, such as Polyvinylpolypyrrolidone (PVP), Polyvinyl, and others like Octylacrylaminde/Acrylates/Butylaminoethyl Methacrylate Copolymer. Lately, too, is a new category of toxins laced in colored powders meant to camouflage grey roots and stain the scalp to keep hair from looking thinner. (We will soon be adding blogs about what to look out for in this dangerous category!) 

Back to the plastic we just listed, these plastics, intended to provide stiffness and body to the hair, can smother hair follicles, leading to further thinning over time.

The cycle perpetuates as individuals continue to use these products, creating a dependency on them and hindering natural hair growth.

Additionally, silicone, though commonly found in personal care products for its smoothing and glossing properties, poses its own set of problems.

While marketed as natural and organic due to its sand-derived origins, silicone, and its derivatives can have adverse effects on hair follicles.

These molecules can become lodged in follicles, impeding their ability to absorb nourishment and ultimately stifling healthy hair growth.

Some common silicone derivatives to watch out for include Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Amodimethicone, and Cyclomethicone, among others.

Despite their widespread use in hair care products, these substances can act as barriers to the scalp, disrupting its natural processes. For a more in depth list of silicones, get your FREE copy of the Silicone Avoid List here.
