Night Sweats and How They Affect Your Hair

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

Part 3 of Women's Hair at Age 40 and Beyond


This is an irritating side effect of menopause. Many women will experience waking up in the middle of the night soaked with perspiration. Excessive perspiration is not always confined to nighttime but can happen at any time during the day. This problem is not only uncomfortable but will ruin any hair style.
Remedies:

Speak to your doctor or your natural foods advisor about controlling the symptoms.


Styling: The fist thing medium to long haired women will feel like doing to be more comfortable is to get their hair off of their neck. Covered bands, scrunchies. clips, barrettes and bobby pins can be used to create ponytails, French rolls and other updos. See Timesaver - Ponytails
  • Danger: Many women who are experiencing menopausal night sweats are also experiencing the changing of the strength and thickness of their hair. There is a danger in using anything that restricts the natural movement of the hair, especially while sleeping. Movement of your body cases friction and stress on your hair where it meets the clip, scrunchie, etc. This can, and often does cause your hair to break. Unless your hair is still strong and thick, I suggest avoiding breakage by either going to shorter style or simply enduring the discomfort of the hair on your neck.


Shampoo as often as necessary. Speak to your hairdresser about hairstyles that are easy to style.

Hair color and permanent waves can be affected
.
The salt from perspiration will often affect the chemical processes of hair color and permanent waves. While a shampoo is customary before permanents, it is not often done before applying permanent hair color. If heavy perspiration is a part of your life, shampoo your hair with a cleansing shampoo before every hair color application as well as permanent wave. This will remove any salt residue and provide more satisfactory results.
