Hair - Humira or hormones?

This is really one for the ladies out there.

In the last few months I have noticed that my hair is producing little/no oil. I'm not complaining as it means I am now only having to wash my hair once a week (and that's only because I feel I should, as it's not actually getting oily).
My skin is also less oily, which is a bit of a blessing as it was always too greasy and spot-prone, although now it gets a bit dry instead.

This has happened since I started Humira at the end of January, but I'm not sure if this is just a coincidence as I have also been starting with very mild peri-menopausal changes.

I just wondered if anyone else had had similar hair (or skin) issues and what you think might have caused it.

Meanwhile, I shall enjoy the convenience while it lasts! :)
