Menopause & Women’s Hair Loss

Menopause and Women’s Hair Loss

Menopause is a stage of life that every woman has to go through. During this stage, your body undergoes many changes, including hormonal and physical changes. Menopausal hair loss can be a challenging time for some people. These changes have a possibility to directly affect the health of your scalp and follicles and your ability to grow hair.

Whether during or after menopause, it’s normal to experience hair loss. Most of the time, hormonal changes are the main cause for menopausal hair loss. Another symptom of menopause you might experience is facial hair growth.

Estrogen & Its Role

The reason these changes can cause hair loss and facial hair growth is because they all result in a significant drop in estrogen production. Before you go through menopause, estrogen will bind any excess testosterone in your system to proteins. These proteins are called globulins, and their job is to carry this testosterone away, this lowering the freeform testosterone in your blood.
However, when estrogen levels drop, there’s nothing there to bind testosterone to these globulins. Therefore, free testosterone levels rise, which also leads to higher levels of DHT.

DHT Inhibitors

DHT is a hormone that kills hair follicles, so it’s no wonder that an increased level of this hormone would result in hair loss. Using a DHT inhibitor can help you reverse the damage that menopause causes. Unfortunately, not all DHT inhibitors are created equal.
The DHT inhibitors we use in Hair Renew are herbal, all natural, and far less likely to cause damaging side effects than others.
