How Your Period Affects Your Hair

Leah Salmon, Bestselling Author, speaker, Nutritionist, Life Coach & Live Blood Analyst

Women who experience menstrual cycles can testify to the irritating hormonal changes that happen during that time. In fact, it can be a full-body experience including cramping, bloating, mood swings, headaches and breast tenderness.

Most of us have made our peace with our monthly cycle by now but did you know it affects your hair too. As your estrogen levels are decreases, and testosterone levels increase during that time, you hair and scalp can become more oily and dull. Find out how to take care of your hair just before, during and after your menstrual cycle.

Leah’s journey into natural health and nutrition began when she was just 11 years old when she decided to become vegetarian. Her stressful, soya and junk food filled teens resulted in her developing a concerning gynecological condition.
After seeking help from doctors who dismissed her condition, she began studying nutrition, aromatherapy and herbal medicine and managed to cure herself using herbs and foods. This sparked her passion to help others use the power of nature and coaching, as she had done, to free themselves of illness, so they don’t need to suffer as she had done. Leah also delivered 2 of her babies prematurely, the second of which, her precious son Amun, sadly passed on at 8 months old. This experience empowered Leah to turn around her health again and she went on to have 5 full term uncomplicated home births against all the odds.
In 2017, Leah qualified as a Live Blood Analysis and in 2018 opened The Naturally You Clinic, with pop up clinics in the UK. Using this fascinating, popular, exploratory tool, Leah carried out over 100 tests on clients in the few months of the clinic opening and her clinic is steadily growing to help more and more people.
Leah knows that if we can empower women to take back control of their life and health naturally and have healthy periods, wombs & pregnancies, as the backbone of the nation, they’ll be the catalyst for global healing across the nation, so she’s dedicated her career to helping support them to achieve health, wellness and a nourished abundant life naturally.
