Dr. Tara Scott: Hair Dryness From Menopause and Propylene Glycol (Video)

(Video Transcript)

Dr. Tara Scott here in conjunction with Strut Health.

Are you suffering from a lot of hair changes and the texture and the length and the consistency and the amount of hair that you have that are associated with unavoidable hormone shifts of perimenopause?

I am right there with you.

One of the things I noticed the most about my hair is the dryness of it.

So, I started checking labels of my haircare and found out that propylene glycol is an additive in a lot of things, especially the over-the-counter Minoxidil that I was trying to use for hair loss.

Well, what I found out is that the propylene glycol itself, while it’s needed to absorb the moisture and get that medication into your scalp and help with the hair growth, it also can be doing the same things causing dryness and flakiness. 

It could cause an allergic reaction, and it could be contributing to the dryness of my hair.

So, make sure that you check out Strut Health’s Hair Formula. This is specially compounded for you with no propylene glycol in it and can help the hair growth.
