As we enter the Menopause our Oestrogen levels drop. Oestrogen is a hair friendly hormone which helps to keep hair in its growth phase for longer.
Hair often falls out in the shower or upon brushing and generally starts to thin all over and this is due to a hormone imbalance.
Your hair texture might change too from it being soft previously to it being more course.
It might also become drier and more brittle, during this time in our lives, the oil glands produce less oil than before causing this change.
Problems with ageing hair, hair loss, thinning hair can often cause low self-esteem and anxiety but there are some things that we can do to help.
Make sure that you eat a healthy diet, it’s important to get all the vitamins and minerals you need and there is no better way of getting these than from food.
Keep hydrated, drink lots of water.
Try to reduce your stress levels as much as possible by finding time for yourself. Yoga or mediation are recommended.
Try to reduce over styling your hair with heated tools. Let your hair dry naturally if you can.
Consider switching your shampoo and conditioner to one that contains Biotin: Biotin supports and promotes new hair growth.
Have a chat with your stylist, why not take your hair slightly shorter in style. This will make your hair look fuller so thinning hair will be less noticeable.
