As part of an ongoing effort to raise the conversation around women’s hair thinning and empower women to take charge of their hair health, our team of experts and physician partners are sharing their knowledge to arm you with the facts. This week is all about the right balance of diet and supplementation to support hair through menopause.
Menopause is a unique chapter of life. Beginning as early as a woman’s 40s, it brings a slew of hormonal changes that can affect everything from sleep to mood to hair.
Particularly for hair, lower levels of estrogen and progesterone that occur during menopause can cause natural changes that increase the effects of DHT (a hormone involved in miniaturizing the hair follicle) and starve hair follicles of vital nutrients necessary for hair growth. But with the right blend of diet and supplementation, you can feed your hair exactly what it needs to grow through menopause.
Below, we’re highlighting the top five nutrients for healthy hair growth during menopause, as well as the best foods to get them from. On top of making changes to your diet, a supplement like Nutrafol Women’s Balance is a good way to get all of these nutrients (and more!) to take control of hair health through menopause.
