Menopausal hair loss

As women navigate the transformative phase of menopause, they often encounter a myriad of changes, both physiological and psychological. One common concern that many women face during this time is hair loss. Menopausal hair loss can be a distressing experience, and seeking guidance from a trichologist can provide valuable insights into managing and understanding this.

Menopausal hair loss, is a result of hormonal fluctuations that occur during menopause. Estrogen, a hormone that plays a crucial role in maintaining hair health, decreases during menopause. This decline can lead to changes in hair texture, thickness, and growth.

As estrogen levels decrease, the influence of androgens, such as testosterone, becomes more pronounced. Androgens can affect hair follicles, leading to a condition called androgenetic alopecia. This is characterised by a gradual thinning of hair, primarily on the crown and top of the head.

Menopausal hair loss can be a complex and multifaceted issue, requiring a holistic approach for effective management. Trichologists bring specialised knowledge and expertise to the table, assisting individuals in understanding the root causes of their hair loss and developing tailored solutions.

Hair in recovery post-chemotherapy

Embarking on the journey of post-chemotherapy hair recovery is a remarkable and empowering phase. As a trichologist, I understand the importance of providing support and guidance during this transformative period. Let's delve into the intricacies of post-chemotherapy hair recovery and explore how to nurture your locks back to health.

Chemotherapy, a potent treatment for various cancers, often leads to temporary hair loss. This occurs due to the impact of chemotherapy drugs on rapidly dividing cells, including those in the hair follicles. The result is a temporary cessation of hair growth and, subsequently, hair loss

Patience is Key:

The first and foremost piece of advice in post-chemotherapy hair recovery is to be patient. Hair regrowth is a gradual process, and it's essential to allow your body the time it needs to recover. Understanding that regrowth might occur slowly and unevenly can help manage expectations during this period.
