Here at Percy & Reed, we know that the menopause can be a turbulent time. Your body is experiencing a host of new changes, which can be difficult to come to terms with and overcome. Thinning hair and weak hair can be one of the most daunting side effects of this period in your life, but all is not lost. There are solutions to provide you with the strength to push through, re-discover your hair health and leave your locks feeling full and fabulous once more.
Let’s start with Percy & Reed’s Give Me Strength Strengthening Collection. This fortifying collection provides a solution to menopausal hair loss and breakage, whilst also supporting new hair growth. After using just the Shampoo and Conditioner for 4 weeks, 83% of women noticed less hair fall, 91% felt their hair looked healthier and 87% agreed their hair felt thicker, stronger and less damaged.
And now there is a new hair loss hero stepping into the collection. Introducing the Give Me Strength Strengthening Hair Mask, laboratory proven to leave hair 6 x stronger after just one use. This nourishing hair treatment can be used twice a week as a standalone treatment or alongside the entire regime, for maximum healthy hair results.
WHY DOES THE MENOPAUSE AFFECT OUR HAIR?
Hair loss during the menopause or perimenopause (the first stage in the process, which can start 8 to 10 years before menopause) is due to the reduction of oestrogen and progesterone during this transitional phase. These hormones help to cultivate new hair growth, so when the levels of these hormones drop, you can expect to see a decreased amount of new hair being cultivated by the scalp. Also, this cultivation happens at a much slower rate, leaving your hair looking and feeling thinner.
LET’S TALK SCIENCE : HOW DOES GIVE ME STRENGTH HELP ?
This powerful quartet, featuring a shampoo, conditioner, scalp treatment and NEW mask contains actives that get to the root of the problem to help reduce hair loss. Each formulation features Sweet White Lupine, an ingredient that works to increase circulation around the hair follicle, facilitating the supply of oxygen and nutrients needed to keep the follicle healthy, which is vital for hair retention and development. This wonder ingredient also helps to inhibit the hormone responsible for androgenetic alopecia, helping to prevent hair fall and support each hair strand.
This, along with other power ingredients, such as caffeine and zinc, make this collection perfect for reinvigorating hair, combatting signs of thinning, perhaps at the parting or around the hair line. The keratin-rich formulas also work to fill in gaps along the hair strand, caused by lost proteins, which helps each hair strand to look and feel thicker. Plus, intense rehydrators add moisture from the inside out to reduce brittleness and breakage.
Don’t let signs of the menopause get you down. Get to the root of hair thinning and start strengthening your strands and scalp with the Give Me Strength Strengthening solutions range. Unlock your hair's inner strength!
