What can I do about this dry, frizzy hair I have all of a sudden? Moisturizing shampoos and conditioners aren’t helping at all.

    During menopause 40-50 percent of women report hair changes. Some notice thinning, some complain of new hair sprouting up in undesirable locations, and many notice texture changes.

    There are a number of causes for dry frizzy hair:

    1. Washing your hair too much – chemicals strip away the elements that keep your locks healthy
    2. Over processing your hair, dyes and perms
    3. Environment – dry heat, too much sun, living in a humid city, swimming pools
    4. Poor diet
    5. Anorexia
    6. Hypothyroidism
    7. Sickness
    8. A deficiency in vitamin A

    A few natural options to treat dry frizzy hair:

    1. Consume omega-3 (salmon, fish oil, flax seeds, walnuts and a daily supplement)
    2. Combine a banana and avocado (overripe) and spread into your hair – I have never done this, but people swear by it.
    3. Vinegar is a great conditioner. Add one teaspoon to your hair to rise. This really helps with frizzies.
    4. Coconut oil rubbed into the scalp can help with dry hair.
    5. Hot oil treatments at the salon.
    6. Biotin supplement helps strengthen dry hair – discuss all supplements with your health provider.
    7. Vitamin A – eat orange foods (mangos, cantaloupe, papaya, sweet potatoes, carrots). As well as, dark green veggies (spinach, kale).

    Many women during perimenopause notice an improvement in their skin and hair once they begin HT. We are all different, let your practitioner know about your dry frizzy hair – it may be a signal to something else that needs attention (hormones, diet, illness).
