How many of us remember that luscious feeling of our healthy, silky hair before menopause?
Menopause almost always affects not only our skin, our sexual drive, our figures but unfortunately our hair too. Hot flushes aside, our hair is possibly the first most visible sign of the changes that occur at this time. Hair has a deep psychological and sexual meaning for most of us. If we can keep our locks healthy, we at least will feel better when looking in the mirror each day!
Menopause symptoms can include dullness, dryness and thinning of hair. As your estrogen, testosterone and progesterone levels decline, you may notice your hair structure changing. Curl may transform to a softer wave, or perhaps the extreme opposite of frizz. Straight hair may even begin to curl. Whatever happens in the hair structure department, one will notice 9 times out 10 we end up with less hair after menopause.
A healthy diet will help boost your skin and hair’s protective barrier, preventing dehydration. This is not instant, but visible results will show up quite quickly once it has been absorbed into the blood stream.
Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water and increasing the amount of healthy fats you’re eating, such as foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (think salmon, walnuts and hemp seeds).
There are women who swear by hormone replacement therapy. You can read more about the benefits in the article by Dr. Sohere Roked, but basically, this is a treatment (after blood analysis) to replace the hormones missing from your bloodstream by rubbing a dosage of cream into the skin. It’s known to reduce your risk of osteoporosis and can alleviate menopausal symptoms. However, it is very important you speak with your doctor to weigh the pros and cons of such a treatment, as it is not suitable for everyone.
