 Simple Tips to Stop Hair Loss Menopause

Menopause hair loss is a common problem that affects about half of women during menopause. Simple lifestyle changes to a woman's daily routine are necessary to take control of hair loss.

Hair is made from a type of protein called keratin, which is also present in the skin and nails. Most people have about 100,000 hairs, which remain on the head for several years at a time. Each hair may grow for two to six years before going into a resting phase. Eventually, the hairs fall out, and most people lose between 50 and 100 hairs every day.


When women begin their menopause transitions, their hormone levels can shift, and levels of estrogen sharply decline. This can trigger numerous symptoms, including menopause painful joints, painful bones menopause, inflamed gums, moodiness, sudden anger, sudden tears, anxiety, heart palpitations, hot flashes, night sweats, lack of sleep menopause and hair loss. Some of the symptoms can be frustrating or irritating, but hair loss can affect a woman and her self-image, which can significantly affect her quality of life.

Unlike male pattern baldness, hair loss during menopause tends to be diffuse. Women may notice large amounts of hair loss when washing or styling their hair, or they may begin to develop a receding hairline. Because hair tends to play such a large role in femininity, many women who are going through this are searching for answers, but they do have several options.

Women may need to try a natural supplement, which uses herbs and other natural ingredients to restore the proper levels of hormones and decrease hormone-related symptoms. A healthy diet can also be beneficial. Women should seek out a balanced diet that includes plenty of healthy fats, vitamin B6, folic acid, whole grains, lean proteins, fruits and vegetables. Women also need to stay adequately hydrated, which means that they may need to take extra steps to ensure that they are getting enough healthy fluids every day.
