The Menopause & thinning hair

Most people think hair loss only affects men, but hair thinning in women is a common condition. Our hair plays a big part in our self-image, and for it to thin can be a very disturbing experience.

Our Hair Loss Solution

Our innovative Enhancer system, provides a treatment for thinning hair that is non-surgical, non-invasive and doesn’t use any heat or glue which can be damaging to existing hair.

Instead, the Enhancer hair replacement system uses a combination of hair extensions and a mesh for the scalp to enhance existing hair or, in cases of severe hair loss, replace it.

It is highly suited to thinning hair as each system is completely bespoke and tailored for the individual woman. You choose the length and volume you want to achieve and extensions are added to the lightweight mesh to mirror the natural fall of your own hair.

Hair Thinning and Menopause Symptoms

The menopause is a biological process that all women experience at some point in their lives when the body goes through numerous physical changes as it adjusts to fluctuating hormone levels.

Many women have unpleasant symptoms during menopause, including hot flashes, mood swings, and insomnia. Hair loss and thinning hair is another common occurrence.

Hair thinning can be a normal part of ageing or may be due to other causes, such as hormonal imbalances during the menopause causing the thickness of hair strands to reduce. Hair loss tends to be subtler in women than it is in men. Most women experience overall hair thinning rather than noticeable bald spots. The thinning can occur on the front, sides, or top of the head. There may also be a recession of the hairline and temples. Hair may also fall out in large clumps during brushing and showering and women often see an increase in the instance of hair falling out.

Hair Thinning and Menopause Causes

Hair loss and hair thinning during menopause is the result of a hormonal imbalance. Specifically, it’s related to a lowered production of estrogen and progesterone. These hormones help hair grow faster and stay on the head for longer periods of time. When the levels of estrogen and progesterone drop, hair grows more slowly and becomes much thinner. A decrease in these hormones also triggers an increase in the production of androgens, or a group of male hormones. Androgens shrink hair follicles, resulting in hair loss on the head.

For women going through menopause, the cause of hair loss is almost always related to hormonal changes. However, there are many other factors that can contribute to hair loss during menopause. These include extremely high levels of stress, illness, or a lack of certain nutrients. Blood tests can help rule out other causes of hair loss include thyroid tests.
