Taming Frizz After Menopause

Are you one of those women that suffered drastic hair changes after menopause? Did you once have silky lustrous hair that has now turned into fine fluff that frizzes? If so read on to find tips on taming the frizz and getting beautiful and luscious locks.

This is because menopause causes your estrogen levels to decrease, and estrogen is a hair-friendly hormone. Estrogen helps keep your hair sumptuous and fabulous but as it decreases hair thins out becoming more dry and fragile leading to fluffy frizz.

Remember when you were an adolescent? You probably noticed the opposite in hair changes, thicker, fuller hair. Yes … it’s those hormones that play havoc with our serenity.

Not only do you experience more frizz but you may find that your hair breaks more easily after menopause because each strand has fined down and is more fragile. Fifty is the average age for menopause, but changes to your hair can begin before, and sometimes after 50, there is no rule but your Mother’s pattern is a good guide of when and what to expect.

How To Prevent

The best way to prevent frizz is to seal the cuticle layer against the penetration of moisture. Increased perspiration caused by hot flashes can be a problem but it is not an insurmountable one. Using a high-performance shampoo and conditioner is key. Products that nurture but at the same time shut down tight the hair shaft to prevent moisture entering and playing havoc with your hair texture.




There are 2 packs I want you to consider.

If you like a blow-dry brushing effect wearing your hair smooth and frizz-free then I’d suggest the Iles Finishing serum, available in the Signature Collection Set, with the equally award-winning shampoo and conditioner. The reviews will help guide you.

If you have a natural wave or curl then it is the Iles Curl Pack. The Iles Formula Curl Revive is the hero item in the Iles Curl Pack. Everything inside this pack is designed to deliver well behaved naturally dried curls and waves. This pack saved my hair and reminded me just how luscious my natural curls can be. This curl serum will protect hair against humidity by blocking excess moisture from penetrating the hair shaft causing more frizz.

During the Covid-19 homestay, I created a How-To video for the Iles Curl Pack . on how to create gorgeous curls.  I hope it helps you discover your no frizz curls again.



How To Use

  • Iles Finishing Serum if heat-activated will make thin hair feel thicker and thick coarse hair calmed down. It can be applied to both wet and dry hair daily. It’s a lighter serum delivering a spun silk texture.
    It has protection against heated tools, UV color fade, and humidity!
  • Iles Curl Revive
    A weightier serum delivering a cashmere texture. It is an excellent weight for curly, wavy, and textured hair. It offers heat, UV, and humidity protection and works best when hair is dried naturally or using a diffuser.

One thing is certain, frizz has a mind of its own so it takes discipline and excellently curated products that are known to work. Taming frizz after menopause is no joke, so utilizing the right products is essential to maintaining a beautiful head of hair.
