Menopause and Hair Loss

Menopause and Hair Loss

A woman’s body is constantly changing, and that certainly doesn’t stop when she gets older. Many women find that their bodies act completely differently throughout the various stages of their lives, and menopause is probably the biggest example of that.

One of the physical changes a woman may experience through menopause is hair loss. Hair loss, however, is not a very discussed symptom of menopause.

If you’ve never heard of hair loss occurring menopause, you’re in luck. Keep reading to learn more about hair loss during menopause and what you can do to keep your mane looking full and beautiful!

Why Does Hair Loss Occur During Menopause?

First, why does hair loss occur during hair loss? Well, first a little bit of the basics on menopause. Menopause is the gradual decline in the production of reproductive hormones that occurs in a woman’s body when they reach their late 40s and their early 50s. This decline in reproductive hormones leads to a decline in menstruation until a woman completely stops having her period altogether. At this time, a woman is unable to give birth to a child.

The shift in the reproductive hormones in a woman’s body during menopause is the cause of hair loss. The low amounts of estrogen and progesterone being produced impact the hair cycle, leading to overall hair thinning.

Decline in these two hormones increased the production of a hormone called androgen, which is known to shrink hair follicles. This contributes to even more hair loss.

What to Do

For women experiencing hair loss during menopause, all is not lost. There are several things she can do to combat her body’s thinning hair. One thing is to start taking certain medications that stimulate the growth of the hair follicles.

A newer technique is called scalp micropigmentation, which you can read more about here at https://www.hairlineink.com/scalp-micropigmentation/.

Stress and Hair Loss

Stress and Hair Loss

Stress can do a number on our bodies, and it seems like everyone is affected by stress differently. Some people gain weight due to stress eating, while others don’t eat enough and end up shedding a few pounds. Stress can also affect sleep patterns and mood. But, can stress lead to hair loss?

It seems like there’s not a clear-cut answer to this question as of yet, but there are studies suggesting a correlation between stress and certain hormones being released. These hormones may or may not impact the hair growth cycle.

However, one interesting side effect of stress is trichotillomania, or compulsive hair pulling. Basically, someone with trichotillomania pulls strands of their hair out when they are under a lot of stress. While it’s rare to go completely bald from this, many people with trichotillomania have noticed bald spots due to pulling hair from one specific area of the scalp.

Because of these spots, many people search for solutions to their issues. My Hair Loss Solutions does micropigmentation, a process that shades and fills in certain areas of the scalp that are currently bald. As a result, the scalp looks fuller and these bald spots aren’t as noticeable as they were before.

Of course, this doesn’t actually solve the problem at hand. If you’ve noticed hair loss during periods of high stress, whether or not it’s due to you pulling it out, you should address your stress levels. Hair loss due to stress is usually one of many signs that you need to take a breather and put your health before whatever is causing extreme stress. Speaking to a therapist or other professional can help give you the appropriate tools that you need to reduce your stress levels.

The Best Foods for Promoting Hair Growth

The Best Foods for Promoting Hair Growth

What we put into our body has a great impact on how our body functions, and food is probably the best example of that phenomenon. The impact of our dietary choices isn’t just limited to our weight, however. If you’re struggling with hair loss, try incorporating the following foods into your diet.

Eggs

Full of both protein and biotin, eggs are a great to combat hair loss. Protein and biotin boost hair growth, and eggs are full of other nutrients that the scalp loves, like zinc. Fortunately, eggs can be eaten many ways, allowing you to add them to your diet without getting bored. You can eat scrambled eggs for breakfast or have some deviled eggs for a snack! Either way, you’ll be intaking all the nutrients you need for healthy hair growth.

Avocados

Avocados are rich in the fatty acids our body needs for hair growth. In fact, a lack of fatty acids has been connected to hair loss. Avocados also contain a ton of Vitamin E which has also been shown to promote healthy hair. So, yes, treat yourself to some guacamole or some avocado toast. Your hair (and your Instagram feed) will thank you.

Beans

Like eggs, beans are an amazing source of protein and are even vegan friendly, too! They are full of zinc and nutrients the scalp needs such as iron and folate. You can also consume beans in many different forms — such as black beans, pinto beans, garbanzo beans and more — all for relatively inexpensive prices. Adding these or other hair friendly foods into your diet won’t completely eliminate hair loss. Consider taking medications or trying out scalp micropigmentation services such as Team Micro. Combined with these options, however, these foods are a wise choice for any head of hair.
