I have just entered menopause…is there something I can do to prevent anymore hair loss?

menopause womanName: Janet

Question: I have just entered menopause. I noticed when I wash my hair, it’s coming out by the handful, is there something I can do to prevent anymore hair loss?

Answer: The first step is to have your hair loss assessed by a specialist to determine your diagnosis. You will also need to have blood tests to eliminate other possible aggravating conditions, such as hormone imbalance, anaemia or thyroid problems along with other dietary deficiencies. That said, the majority of women who experience hair loss during the menopause get diagnosed with female pattern hair loss, a genetic condition that cannot be cured, but which can be treated with minoxidil to regrow thinning hair, the only medication licensed by the UK’s medical regulatory body to treat hair loss in women.
