What Is Menopausal Hair Loss?
Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her periods stop and the years of reproduction come to an end, usually around the age of 50. Common symptoms that might accompany the menopause are:
- hot flushes
- inability to sleep well
- vaginal dryness
- mood swings.
It is a natural and an inevitable process that every woman will go through, but by easing symptoms, it can make it a more pleasant time.
Changes in hormone levels, particularly oestrogen, have an overall impact on the body during the menopause. What you might not know is around 50% of women going through the menopause will suffer from hair loss or thinning by the age of 50! Declining oestrogen and progesterone will influence how your body copes with these physical changes and can result in some hair loss as oestrogen works to support healthy hair. The hair follicles contain hair that is shorter, thinner and more likely to break as a result of a decreased oestrogen supply.
Although fluctuating hormone quantities are a major factor in menopausal hair loss, stress, poor sleep and a lack of essential nutrients can also have a huge impact. You may find that you have been experiencing the perimenopause (having menopausal symptoms at the same time as periods) for several years before the actual menopause takes place. This could mean that your body has been suffering from the consequences of stress, tiredness and hormonal impairment for quite a while and really needs nutritious support to restore healthy hair, skin and overall wellbeing.
