I am 74, during childhood had very curly hair. When I went through menopause my front and side hair and top hair became very straight but back remains curly. now my hair seems like a hay pile, I have no oil, what do I do?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Head massage is one of the best ways to naturally produce oil in the hair.

Indian head massage is offered in some hair salons - it also introduces a lot of oil into the hair and scalp (and can be a bit messy!) but works well. It's also relaxing if you enjoy a firm scalp massage.

Use shampoo sparingly and use conditioner with oils - Moroccan oil is a popular choice these days, but coconut oils and olive oils would work too.
