Your Hair & The Menopause

Hair Loss & The Menopause – Advice From Hair Lab Salon, Basingstoke & Woking

It is a natural and inevitable process that women go through menopause usually between the mid 40’s to early 50’s. Fortunately, as menopausal symptoms are a consequence of fluctuations in hormones, they don’t last forever. Common symptoms of menopause include hot flushes, inability to sleep well, mood swings and in some cases hair loss. Research suggests that around 50% of women will suffer from hair loss or thinning hair during this time. There is no quick fix to combatting menopausal hair loss, but there are steps you can take to promote hair growth and alleviate your symptoms.

Lifestyle changes can have a positive effect, adding movement and exercise and getting some much needed support or nurturing may pay dividends at this time of change.

The experts at our Hair Salon in Basingstoke can offer advice on the best professional hair products to use that will help thicken out your locks as well as find a hairstyle that can help you to disguise thinning.

How to Disguise Fine & Thinning Hair

During menopause, many women find that their hair does not grow as long. This is because oestrogens keep the hair in the growing phase, and the longer the growing phase, the more hair will grow. Reduced oestrogen levels cause the hair to grow more slowly, and the hair will shed more than it is growing, leading to thinning hair.

Most women will see some changes in their hair after or during the pause. Hair can become finer, thinner, more wiry, or just a bit fluffy.

We can recommend customised hair treatments to help strengthen your hair and give it a thicker feel and reduce breakage.
