Hot flashes, mood swings, and rapid weight gain/loss are typical signs of menopause.
Did you know thinning hair is another sign?
In fact, menopause almost always adversely affects our hair, with dullness, dryness and thinning.
While the average age for menopause is 50, most women experience changes to their hair long before that.
If you are over 40, you may have noted how the volume of your hair changed during the years. Women try to hide the dullness of their hair by coloring them which not only makes women appear younger, but feel more confident about their post-menopause body.
Extended use of hair color damages even normal hair; you can only imagine the damage on thinning hair.
This is where special shampoos and conditioners for color-treated hair come in the picture. Natomy Beauty offers simple 3 steps to help take better care of color treated hair.
Step 1: Apply Moisture Care Shampoo for gentle cleaning and volume.
Step 2: Deep-condition hair with Express Treatment Conditioning after cleansing and towel-drying hair. Leave for 3 minutes and rinse.
Step 3: Apply Glossing Balm to styled or gelled hair.
Menopause can also bring along a slew of allergies, especially when you are coloring your hair again. Avoiding an allergy due is easy. All you have to do is conduct a hair color allergy test patch:
Mix small amount of permanent hair color and developer, in a small plastic bowl. You will test the color on a small patch of skin therefore 1” of color (from tube) with a dime-sized dollop of activator will be enough.
Care Of Color Treated Hair Before And After Menopause
You can conduct the color test on the inside of your arm, wrist, or behind your ear before cleaning the patch with rubbing alcohol or water. Apply the color mixture onto your skin with the help of a cotton swab. Leave it to dry and then cover the area with a small bandage.
You are testing the hair color for sensitivities or allergies that can be experienced if applied to your hair.
48 hours are more than enough to let you know of any adverse reactions to any ingredients. Feel free to proceed coloring your hair if you don’t feel any discomfort or change in skin.
Every women experiences menopause in her way, same as how each woman chooses to deal with these changes differently.
Thinning hair isn’t the end of the world for some, while others feel their confidence shattering with every hair breakage.
