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.

Products

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.
