Thin Hair After Menopause 

What You Need to Know About Thin Hair After Menopause

When you experience hair loss and other symptoms of menopause it’s largely due to hormonal changes.
Your ovaries begin to decrease, the amount of estrogen and progesterone that is normally produced is less.

As these hormone levels drop numerous physical changes occur, one being menopausal hair loss.

You may notice that your hair is growing more slowly and becoming thinner.

With the decrease in estrogen and progesterone, there is an increase in the activity of the male hormone(androgens). Androgens cause the hair follicles on your scalp to shrink which leads to hair loss. However, androgens can increase hair growth on your face and other parts of your body.

There are other factors that can contribute to hair loss, such as lack of nutrients, poor diet, stress, and illness.

For a more detailed explanation check out Menopause and Hair Growth | Lose the Fear of Hair Loss by Alan Eschenburg & Cheryl Wright.

As you enter the years of menopausal transition, which is a natural reset of the reproductive system, it’s wise to consult your doctor. They may suggest tests for checking your hormone levels, basic blood count, and thyroid function and is always a good idea to get your health-check update. 

How Common Is It?

During the years surrounding menopause, hair loss is a common condition.

It is estimated that over 50% of women experience hair loss, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

During your life, including before, during and after menopause, there are several factors that influence your chances of experiencing hair loss which is, diet, age, ethnicity, and genetic factors and hair products.

Menopausal Hair Loss: Is It Reversible?

Menopause is a time period of dramatic hormonal changes that cause many different symptoms to appear.

Many women want to know if hair loss during menopause is reversible. Yes! Most hair loss caused by hormonal imbalances is reversible, unlike genetic hair loss.

What Can You Do About Thin Hair after Menopause?

Quick Aesthetic Fixes

If you want a quick fix to camouflage thinning hair while looking at treatment options, there are several things you can try.

Hairstylists often recommend that women with thinning hair try a shorter haircut because long hair can make fine hair more obvious. The weight of the length can pull the hair down, thus making it closer to the scalp, looking flatter and thinner.

Shorter cuts like a bob or a pixie are popular, as are layers that add volume and bangs to add the look of more hair around the face. Some women wear hats when they’re feeling especially self-conscious, yet the history and psychology of hat-wearing is a symbol of confidence!
( Another story for another time!)

By the way, if you choose the hat route, make sure it is not tight. That can impede the blood supply to the follicles. Use pins to secure it if necessary.

Improved by Cosmetic Practices

Reduce the use of straighteners, hairdryers, and other heat-damaging tools. Use GrowOut Shampoo & Strengthener and GrowOut Scalp Nutrient Spray. To help add volume to your hair use DraMatic Daily Volumizing Conditioner.

Healthy diet and supplementation

A healthy, balanced diet and supplementation are contributing factors to a healthy body and provide ingredients taking part in the hair-building process. It’s worthwhile to pay closer attention to one’s diet. For more help with that, check out  How to Grow Hair Faster: The GrowOut Diet Book. 

Laser Devices

Laser therapy is best carried out by a hairstylist or therapist with experience and training on the devices. They emit low-energy laser light that may stimulate hair growth to help fight thinning hair. The long-term safety and effectiveness are unknown.

No matter what approaches you take, be sure that you are taking care of your “hair factories,” known as hair follicles!
