The menopause is something all women will go through as part of the natural ageing process. The body slows down the production of oestrogen, essential to hair growth and how long the hair will grow for. So, as these hormones decline the hair will grow slower and the follicle will produce finer hair. Unfortunately, another effect of this reduced production of oestrogen is an increase in androgens, a group of male hormones that miniaturise the hair follicle preventing it from forming strong, thick hair. Androgens can also, in some cases cause a female to produce facial hair.
Hot flushes, insomnia, mood swings and raised anxiety levels are all symptoms that woman of around 45 – 55 years of age can expect to experience.
Not much fun. So what can be done to help these symptoms?
