Menopause and thinning hair: symptoms and treatment

Life begins at forty! You are more confident, empowered and ready to take on the world. You are also going through biological changes. Your mood and appearance may start to change, but we can help you live life to the utmost.

What is menopause and what causes it?

Menopause occurs when menstruation ceases due to a natural drop of oestrogen production. It usually occurs in the mid to late 40’s and comes with various symptoms like insomnia, hot flashes, fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, body dryness, aging skin, dry and itchy scalp, dry and thinning hair.
