Acing hair care during your period

If your hair is not behaving right during your period, in terms of hair loss or being oily , it’s not your imagination. The hormonal changes before, during and after your period affect not just your skin, but also your tresses.

Here are 5 tips to perfect your hair care routine

Hormonal fluctuations make your scalp and hair oily during your period. Opt for a cleansing shampoo and for minimal conditioner on these days.

Hair care during period

During your period week, levels of estrogen are at rock bottom which might make your hair look dull or cause sensitivity of the scalp. The perfect time to get a head massage or a relaxing hair spa!

Post your period, the level of estrogen in your body increases and testosterone, responsible for triggering oil production, decreases. Reduction in oil can make your scalp dry, therefore it’s the best time to opt for deep conditioning.

During ovulation, 14 days before the menstrual cycle, the estrogen level multiplies. This is great for your scalp as it enhances the oil levels. Intensive scrubbing can hurt your scalp during this phase.
