The decrease and increase of hormones also causes hair loss, while exposure to stress-related situations can also trigger hair loss.
Some other causes of hair loss include elevated testosterone levels, inflammation of the scalp, some type of medication including chemotherapy in cancer treatment, and even hereditary causes. When one experiences hair loss, it is important for the person to go back to approximately three months for the actual cause to be established.
Because the cause of hair loss can be traced back to about three months before the actual hair loss process began. Were you using medication?
Have you been exposed to a traumatic event? Or are you in the last stages of menopause? When you get the answers to these questions, you are probably able to accurately manage your hair loss without wasting any time.
When you go through menopause, progestin levels drop and your body begins to stop ovulating, which ultimately increases the production of adrenal cortex steroids and the hormone androstenedione.
The same process takes place in men and this is the reason why men are more bald than women in most cases. So after you actually know the cause of your hair loss and when it is related to menopause, it is time for you to get a cure for it.
First of all, strive to increase your progestin levels so that the body automatically stabilizes itself, thus giving your thinning hair a chance to grow back.
But how do you do that? As for hair loss after menopause, you should look for progestin supplements. It's a sure-fire way to fight hair loss after menopause, but it won't work miraculously, so you need to give it time for the change to be visible.
Besides supplements, one can also use naturally composed hormones for the process of correcting hair loss and improving thyroid function. Check your diet and if possible add foods rich in isoflavones as they have estrogenic effects in helping hair loss after menopause.
Hair loss is also associated with a hereditary action in that people of European descent lose their hair faster than Asians, African Americans, natives of North America and Africans. Studies show that normally humans lose up to 50 or 100 hairs per day and that 2/3 of postmenopausal women face thinning hair while half of menopausal women lose their hair during the process.
Other hair loss after menopause is also caused by a poor diet characterized by iron deficiency, thyroid disorders, a lack of protein in the diet, pituitary problems and high vitamin A intakes. Another cause of hair loss after menopause is the use of dyes, too tight ponytails, and bleaches.
