We know there will be changes, but if we are ready for them, we can prepare for them. Women often find they have very greasy or dry hair at this time of life. So using a good shampoo, conditioner and maybe a conditioning mask every now and then could help to keep your hair in tip-top condition. So how can we take care of our hair during menopause?
- Wash your hair no more than 3 times a week, washing it too often will strip it of natural oils
- If you use a conditioner, comb it through the ends, do not massage it on to the scalp
- Use a shampoo that is SLS free. Chemicals used in shower gels and shampoos are used to stop grease from garage floors,
- Your hair is delicate so use chemical-free shampoos, and remember, baby shampoos are not included in this list. They also contain SLS.
- Don´t brush or comb your hair harshly, treat it with care, wear a cap o sun hat in the sun, protect your head and hair.
- If you do colour your hair, then use a product with as little chemical as possible, ideally a henna type colour or ask the chemist.
- Try not to use too many products on your hair, if you need to keep it tidy, use a gentle hair spray, but one that brushes out.
- Using clips and flower bands can brighten you up, summer is around the corner, why not look out for some attractive clips for your hair now.
- Try different hairstyles to change your appearance, visit the hairdresser with a picture of what you like, she will advise you if it will suit you.
