Solutions For Thinning Hair

During menopause, many women find that their hair does not grow as long. This is because oestrogens keep the hair in the growing phase, and the longer the growing phase, the more hair will grow. Reduced oestrogen levels cause the hair to grow more slowly, and so the hair will shed more than it is growing, leading to thinning hair.
