Thickening hair products for menopausal hair

Like the beautiful Lizzie Gore Grimes In other words, menopause can wreak havoc on our hair, causing an unfortunate “double whammy of losing hair where you want it and gaining it where you don’t.”

Indeed, according to a recent Pantene Surveywomen reported that thinning hair was the main concern during menopause, followed by dry hair and scalp, hair loss and loss of volume, resulting in “lifeless” locks.

So what causes this change in our hair?

Like skin, hair changes over time, especially as we enter the new life stages of perimenopause and menopause.

During these phases, our body experiences a drop in estrogen production, which affects us in all sorts of ways. Some common symptoms include hot flashes, weight gain, insomnia and of course changes in our hair like thinning, shedding and dryness.

It’s important to be in tune with our bodies, so we can recognize these symptoms, better navigate this transition, and take care of our changing needs.

Menopause hair care

Unlike other beauty products designed for thinning and hair loss, the Pantene Hair Biology Menopause Range was specifically created to meet the changing needs of hair and scalp as you enter perimenopause and menopause.

Made with skincare-inspired ingredients like vitamin B3 and white tea, it works two-fold, helping to soothe and hydrate the scalp and add volume from the root by expanding the diameter of hair strands for a fuller, thicker mane.

Ph Balance Shampoo and Conditioner

An effective combination for thinning hair, Pantene Hair Biology Menopause Shampoo and Conditioner uses vitamin B3 to condition and protect hair and white tea to calm skin and lock in moisture. The shampoo is light and gentle, allowing for an extra lift, and the conditioner boosts strands with moisture and shine.

Hair Thickening Serum

This leave-in hair thickening serum doubles as a soothing scalp treatment. It helps add density to hair by creating the appearance of 6,500 extra hair fibers, so you can have thicker, fuller hair with just one use. For best results, gently massage the serum around your scalp with your fingertips for about a minute to help distribute the product evenly, then style your hair as you normally would.

Moisturizing hair masks


Infused with nutrients, Pantene Hair Biology GlowTime Hair Mask and Cap helps repair damaged hair and while Argan Oil adds a beautiful, hydrating shine. Designed to strengthen brittle strands, Pantene Hair Biology Revitalize & Strengthen Hair Mask is formulated with Vitamin B7 and Pro-V to help revitalize dry, lifeless, thinning hair. And it’s silicone free!

Although everyone’s body experiences menopause differently, using beauty products that work with your body during this new stage of life can help you regain confidence and feel like yourself again.

Take a sheet of sex and the cityKim Cattrall’s book: “I see menopause as the start of the next fabulous phase in a woman’s life. Now is the time to “tune in” to our body and embrace this new chapter. If anything, I feel more myself and love my body more now, at 58, than ever before.
