Menopause and Hair Loss

Every woman experiences different menopause symptoms. Many women have some hot flushes, some have hair thinning or hair falling and some feel irritable, suffer from headaches, nausea or night sweats. Try our Nutrigro Plan – to help symptoms. 

N – nutrition 

U – use non-harsh hair products which do not have sodium lauryl sulfate (which causes irritation in some) and have natural herbs for healthy hair such as fenugreek (methi) and amla 

T – train or exercise daily to improve blood circulation to the head 

R – routinely remove toxins from your body through ayurvedic or Swedish massage scraping the tongue every morning and night, exercise etc 

I – Imagine the hair you want. Research shows  there is more chance of having the hair you desire if you can imagine how you want it to look. 

GRO– this gives the growth of existing hair 

Nutritionally we would recommend you increase oestrogen rich foods and reduce intake of what we call Pitta foods. In Ayurveda, we say there are three energies in the body – vata, pitta and kapha. The pitta energy adds heat and an imbalance in the scalp can cause hair loss and hair thinning.  

Pitta reducing foods include salads, less spicy foods and vegetables. Oestrogen rich foods are:   

1.Tofu, Soy, Fruits, and Vegetables 

Hair loss and menopauseSome fruits and vegetables have phytoestrogens – plant chemicals that are very similar in structure to oestrogen, and may act as weak oestrogen in our bodies. The mineral boron holds the body’s ability to hold onto oestrogen. Eat more plums, prunes, strawberries, apples, tomatoes, pears, grapes, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, lettuce, and onions. 

2. Eat Beans and Flax Seeds  

Beans and Flax seeds contain phytoestrogens and are a good source of many vitamins and minerals, including calcium, folic acid, and vitamin B6. Sprinkle beans on your salads. Take ¼ to 1 teaspoonful daily. 

The body tends to lose protein or collagen causing the hair to fall or become thinner. Supplement your protein with omega-rich fish. However, if you are on a vegetarian diet have plenty of pulses and nuts.  

Alternatively, you could give hair food to your hair and hair follicles through hair supplements. Ensure they have all the 22 amino acids that make protein, vitamins, minerals, and botanicals such as amla and fenugreek in them. 

If you are like Ella from Leicester, who rang us after reading our previous hair loss article, and have hair just dropping when you have a shower or on your pillow it may be that you need to strengthen the hold of the hair to the follicle. This you can do this through the latest technique that we have developed called the Nutrigro Hair Thinning kit. Simply roll a scalp roller with small 0.3mm pins along the areas of hair thinning. This will cause small temporary holes to be created and allow the Nutrigro serum to get to the follicles rather than just working on the scalp as most hair products do.
