Every woman is prepared for hot flashes when menopause hits, but most are unpleasantly surprised when their hair starts to dissipate. It's the dirty little secret of the change, as hormonal changes prompt hair thinning and loss. Some 40 percent of all women experience it between the ages of 40-60 and beyond. That is similar to the rate of baldness in men, but the same phenomenon in women can be more even over the entire scalp, and thus more subtle.
The first clues may come in the form of a wider part, a brush full of hair or a thinner ponytail.
Although hormone treatments can help a little, they don't usually cause dramatic improvements in the follicular cycle, and sometimes make things worse instead of better.
Declining hormones can leave hair thin and limp during the peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopause years. In some women, male hormones fall as well and doctors recommend androgen-boosting treatments for hair loss. The problem is that, for many, androgens themselves cause the problem, directly leading to follicular failure and the production of weaker and weaker hair.
With the help of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, testosterone can be converted into dihydrotestosterone, which shrinks hair follicles. This results in thickening of scalp membranes, along with reduced elasticity and blood flow. Hair follicles atrophy and hair falls out.
Hormones are not the only cause of age-related hair loss. Stress, thyroid problems, illness, medication side effects, and declining nutritional status or a drying scalp can all play a role. The aging body often requires a little more nurturing to keep the status quo.
Hair loss may sound like a mere cosmetic problem but it can have real psychological effects on women, from depression and withdrawal to anxiety and reduced self-esteem. Social and cultural associations with hair can make or break a woman's sense of confidence, youth and vitality.
With Noni and virgin coconut oil, women can learn to love their hair again.
