As you transition into the menopausal stage, you will experience menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and itching. To add to that list, the effects will create additional changes on other parts of your body and may cause thinning hair and hair loss.
The menopausal transition usually begins between ages 45 and 55. And this is a time that you are most prone to hair loss from hormonal changes.
According to the National Women’s Health Network, “hair loss during menopause is often attributed to changes in hormones”.
During menopause, your estrogen levels fall and your body has a greater presence of testosterone and the increase of DHT causes your hair to get thinner and fall-out. Fortunately, there are solutions on how to treat menopausal hair loss. The best hair loss products for menopause-linked hair loss are the ones that contain natural DHT blockers that can effectively prevent hair loss, stimulate hair growth, and provide nourishment to hair and scalp.
You can also use hair vitamins that include natural DHT blockers designed to prevent DHT from attaching to your hair receptors. Several studies have also proven that deficiencies in iron can cause hair loss and hair thinning. Iron works by transporting oxygen throughout the body’s cells including hair follicles. This can stimulate hair growth (and re-growth).
