How does your period affect your hair?
Before you ovulate, your hair is at its best, shiny and full of volume. This is due to the hormone estrogen. However, during your period, a lower level of the same hormone along with progesterone will make your hair fatter or even make you notice that you have more hair loss.
What is true about the myths about the relationship between your hair and your period?
There are many views on what a woman can and cannot do when she has her period. Some of these views are outdated or untrue, others are certainly true. Read on to find out what’s right and what isn’t…
You can’t colour your hair if you have your period.
Dyeing your hair when you have your period is probably one of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to your hair and your period. Therefore, let’s not beat around the bush and answer you right: you can just dye your hair when you have your period. Paint only puts a layer on your own hair, so your hormones don’t have any further influence on this.
It’s bad for your hair to wash it during your period.
This fable is not true. You may have been told that you can’t wash your hair when you have your period, because it can break down. However, this has nothing to do with your period. It is good to wash your hair with not too hot water, because it dries out. By the way, this doesn’t just apply when you have your period, but is something to take into account on a daily basis.
A permanent one can fail if you do this while you have your period.
This is not a myth but really true. A permanent one is a transformation of your hair and hormones can affect this. It’s impossible to say in advance how strong the effect of your period will be on your hair, but because it can be permanently different from when you’re not on your period, it’s something to take into account. So it’s best to postpone this for a while these few days of the month so that you don’t have to face a look with surprises.
Not only about your hair during your period there are many myths in the world, but also about your period in general. Don’t forget to read our post about myths during your period in which we like to tell you more about what is and isn’t right.
