How does the hair look during menopause?
When a woman reaches the menopause stage, several characteristics start to be observed in her hair.
The leading cause of hair problems in menopause is a drop in hormone production, making the hair and other parts of the body dryer. This gradual decrease in the production of female hormones causes those androgens to start to appear, causing hair loss and hair growth in other parts of the body, such as the face.
These hormones also cause the hair follicles to initiate a mode called “rest”, which generates a weakening of the hair, ultimately causing falls.
And these can be one of the most striking characteristics of those who enter the menopause stage, including dryness and change in hair thickness.
