Menopause is a time where the body goes through a lot of changes, and those changes come with some unpleasant side effects. The most commonly known side effects include: mood swings, hot flashes, and insomnia, but did you know that it can also cause hair loss?

Why Does Menopause Cause Hair Loss?

As we age, our bodies go through hormonal changes. For women, menopause means less production of estrogen and progesterone, which are the hormones needed for hair growth and retention. On top of the reduced production of female hormones, there is an increase in androgens during menopause. Androgens are a group of male hormones that cause shrinkage of hair follicles resulting in hair loss on the scalp. Not only do they cause hair loss on your head, they are also responsible for the growth of hair on the face and chin. Thanks a lot, androgens.

How to Combat Menopause-Related Hair Loss

Just because menopause wants us to lose our hair, it doesn’t mean that you should give up. There are some ways to combat hair loss during menopause and to keep your hair strong and healthy.

  • Improve Diet

Make sure you are getting the proper nutrients that are needed to promote hair growth. KeraViatin Hair & Scalp Health Supplement by Keranique contains premium and powerful blend of vitamins and minerals designed to help promote hair strength and to support scalp health.

  • Lower Stress

Keep your stress at a low level to prevent hormone imbalance. Many people find yoga and meditation to be useful tools in maintaining low stress levels.

  • Increase Movement

Exercise can help you feel stronger and happier. It also prevents mood swings, weight gain, and insomnia, all of which can worsen your hormonal imbalance.

    I have been using Keranique for over 2 months and hair loss worse than ever.. currently not at home and will call customer service in few days to get refund as very disappointed.

    • Keranique Hair says:

      Hi Kathleen, hair shedding at the beginning of our Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil may happen for a small percentage of users and is nothing to be concerned about! It’s temporary, usually lasting from 2-8 weeks at most, and it actually indicates that the treatment is working as it’s making room for new, thicker hair to grow in. Keep in mind once you’ve experienced initial results, you will continue to see improvement in your hair! We have sent a contact request to our Customer Relations team to better assist you with your goals with Keranique.
      Thank you

    Do u have to use the menoxidal? I’m worried about the side effects. That stopping it creates more hair loss and wount grow back? I use serum, night time therapy, vitamins and volume spray.

    • Keranique Hair says:

      Hi Lydia, Our Regrowth Treatment contains 2% Minoxidil, an FDA-approved ingredient and side effects are considered to be rare or uncommon at most. Scalp dryness and mild shedding occurs for a small percentage of users at the beginning of the treatment, but is completely temporary. If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us and we’re more than happy to chat more about what to expect from our products. Our Customer Service team is available 24 hours a day at (888)237-4131.
      Thank you

      Hi Lydia, if you are looking to regrow your hair we recommend using Keranique Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil. However our Follicle Boosting Serum does not contain Minoxidil and will work to revitalize your hair follicles and thicken your hair.
      Thank you

    I’ve been using Keranique products along with minoxidil since February, 2019. I’m a 50 year old female and continue to lose noticeable hair in the shower and throughout my home. Doctors find nothing wrong with me………why isn’t my hair loss improving? I think it’s about time to try something different.

    • Keranique Hair says:

      Hi Sandy, hair regrowth takes time and requires patience. Using Keranique Regrowth Treatment twice a day, everyday is imperative to achieve your regrowth goals. A Customer Relations Liaison will reach out to better assist you with reaching your regrowth goals with Keranique. Thank you
