 Now here are our tried and tested tips to help during this change:

1. Nourish From Within: Nourishing your body internally is paramount for healthy hair during menopause. A balanced diet abundant in vitamins, minerals, and proteins is vital. Incorporate fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and omega-3 fatty acids into your meals to fortify hair growth and strength. Don't forget the importance of hydration; ample water intake keeps both body and hair hydrated.




2. Hydrate Your Locks with Kevin Murphy: Combat menopausal dryness and brittleness with hydrating hair products like Kevin Murphy's Hydrate-Me Wash and Rinse. Formulated with potent ingredients like Kakadu Plum and Micro Algae, these products infuse moisture and strength from root to tip, revitalising your locks.



3. Gentle Hair Care Routine: Handle menopausal hair delicately, as it tends to be more fragile. Opt for gentle hair care products and avoid excessive heat styling or harsh chemicals. Air dry your hair whenever possible and use a wide-tooth comb for gentle detangling.



4. Scalp Care Matters with Glowwa Hair Food: A healthy scalp lays the groundwork for robust hair growth. Treat your scalp to regular massages to stimulate blood circulation and follicle health. Glowwa Hair Food, enriched with natural oils like argan and jojoba, offers not only nourishment but over 20 other health benefits, promoting scalp and hair vitality.


5. Protect from Sun and Heat: Guard against sun exposure and heat styling tools, which can exacerbate dryness and damage. Wear a hat outdoors and apply a protective hair spray with UV filters. Minimise heat styling and always use a heat protectant spray to mitigate damage.



6. Manage Stress: Combat stress, a potential exacerbator of menopausal hair issues, through relaxation techniques like meditation or yoga. Stress management positively impacts both hair health and overall well-being during menopause.



7. Regular Trims and Treatments: Schedule regular trims to keep your hair looking its best. Remove split ends and maintain shape and vitality. Indulge in deep conditioning treatments or hair masks weekly to replenish moisture and nourish strands.



Menopause may herald changes in hair health, but with diligent care and targeted products, you can preserve its vibrancy and strength.
