During perimenopause and menopause estrogen levels dropping can play havoc with your hair. Thickness and texture can be affected, your once luscious locks can become dull and dry, and you can experience fall out more easily than usual. Loss of volume, hair becoming finer and poor or slow growth are also common signs to look out for. Losing your hair at any age can be difficult to accept, and even more so during the menopause when hormonal changes can also affect your mood and your confidence. Thinning and hair fall out is common in your 40s and 50s, and often starts during perimenopause- the period shortly before menopause.
Here at The Vanilla Room we have lots of ways to keep your hair looking its best and to help ensure you continue to look and feel fabulous. We always use specialist professional products that are most suited to your hair needs, and the Kérastase Genesis range is ideal for tackling these types of hair concerns head-on.
The very first range to treat both kinds of hair-fall, at the root and from fibre breakage, it’s been specifically designed for women experiencing weakening of the hair due to circumstances such as hormonal changes. When using the three-step approach of shampoo, conditioner and serum, we’ve found it reduces hair-fall by up to 84%, meaning less hair down the shower plug and more where it belongs.
The L’Oreal Professionnel Denser Hair serum is another proven treatment for thinning hair and hair loss issues. Its patent formula is enriched with stemoxydine and resveratrol, which provides 1000 new hairs in just six weeks with lasting effect. This targeted treatment not only significantly increases the hair density but also stimulates hair growth. Increased dryness and thinning of the hair during menopause does mean the skin is likely to be more sensitive, this can happen to any part of the skin especially the scalp. Applied directly to the scalp, this treatment restores balance to sensitive scalps with thinning hair and provides a real boost to hair growth.
We also have our very own bespoke Capture Hair Clinic, which specialises in hair extensions, additional hair, and interlaced hair loss concealment. Providing undetectable, bespoke real hair replacement ideal for volume and density, as well as length and colour.
