Hair loss during perimenopause

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi ladies,

I was wondering if anyone knows whether or not your hair gets better once you're out the other side ?  Mine has thinned quite a bit and I seem to loose quite a lot when I wash it ?  I'm really hoping that this isn't permanent.  Anyone else had a similar experience ?

Many Thanks

Debbie

    Hi Debbie, 

      This issue with hair is really a problem fir many women.  One thing that I can tell you is my hair is dramatically effected by hormones, both good and bad. The same thing with my nails.  

    Many experts believe that our hair is fueled by estrogen. That you will have fuller thicker hair with replacement.  But for me it's a combination of both estrogen and progesterone.  I can see and feel a very profound difference.

    Wish I could answer your question about whether the hair loss and thinning will stop or slow down, but that is apparently different for every woman.  For some the answer is yes, it's better.  And then there are women who are bald after menopause.  My sister is, she wears a wig full time.

    Take Biotin, for your hair, nails and skin. Biotin will replenish your hair, grow it back and thicken it if it's thinning out. This is what we, in the medical field ,suggest to women who complain about losing hair. It will take about a month before your hair will grow back but it will stop it after about 2 weeks from it falling out. I've been taking it because my nails were getting brittle and it seems to have stopped it and it's making my hair grow faster, which I don't want because I get tired of dying my hair every 2 weeks! But I tell you it really works.

      Hi,

      Thank you very much for your reply. Yes I started taking Biotin at the end of February, so that's about 4 months so far, I do have new hairs all over but still seem to loose quite a bit. Think I'm obsessing a bit perhaps ? Is there a particular one you might recommend or ideal dosage ? I'm taking it in a liquid form.

      Love Debbie x

      Hi Debbie, 

      Sorry about this but they blocked my post for mentioning brand names which I completely forgot is not allowed here. 

      As for the Biotin, you need 2.5mg or 2,500 mcg. You may also need zinc to help absorb it. 

      I also mentioned that conditioner's can make your hair fall. You shouldn't lose more than say 10-20 hairs after conditioning if you do then you need to get rid of it, since it means you're conditioner will contain too many salt chemicals causing the fallout which isn't good for your scalp because you'll lose more hair after combing it or brushing it. 

      Anyhow, I'm not seeing the pm button to send you a private message. So please send me one if you want more information on this topic. 

      Luv, x

      Hi Sochima,

      Thank you again for replying. I checked my Biotin, it's actually 10mg ? Could that be too much. One of my other supplements contains zinc so that's good. I also can't see the PM button but I can give you my e mail perhaps ? Would love to know more if posssibe.

      Debbie x
