Advice on hair loss and menopause

It is very normal for you to lose hair while going through your menopause – this is, in fact, one of the known side effects of menopause. Hair loss during menopause occurs because the production of oestrogen is significantly reduced in comparison to the production of testosterone in the body. The excess of testosterone makes the hair on your head fall while encouraging growth in other undesirable parts of your body like your chin. In addition, other problems like thyroid, stress, and nutrient deficiencies can also cause hair loss. You should remember that hair loss during menopause is a phase and does not last. You will begin to re-grow the hair once your hormonal balance is restored.  

You should ensure that your diet includes proper amounts of vitamin B, C, and E. These vitamins are very good for the hair and you can also take a multivitamin that contains all of them. Try acupressure and a gentle massaging of your scalp to stimulate hair growth. Ensure that you do not emotionally exert yourself and give into emotions like anger because these tend to encourage the testosterone levels within the body. You can also use a decoction of the leaves of the margosa tree to restore health and growth to your hair. Hair growth is also encouraged by massaging coconut milk into the scalp.
