Love the new avenue to explore.
With no offense intended to Jamy, perhaps there are more things that affect hair characteristics, or perhaps there is (as she suggested) some hormonal or other chemical aspect to clusters that causes the brittleness?

About all I "know" about hair comes from tv commercials. Protein-enhancing shampoos, etc. Let me toss out a few ideas you pros might be able to respond to.
1. Changes in seratonin levels, etc. affect the chemical makeup of the body and hair?
2. As I recall, the hair is pretty reflective of body chemistry. Can't you drug test someone from a hair sample?
3. K, dumb one here. Does the agony of a cycle cause you to change your normal hair care routine?
4. Maybe even dumber..does the cycle result in dietary changes which impact the hair?

We may be really reaching here, but it would be interesting to 'analyze' your hair in and out of cycle to see what changes may occur. I'd volunteer, but hair isn't exactly my strong suit. If scalp skin would work too, I've got plenty of that!
Keep up the creative thinking. If you do what you've always done, you get what you always got. To change what we 'get' about clusters (not much) we have to change what we do.
