Why Hair Loss Happens During Menopause

Menopause conjures a wave of hormonal changes for women in the 45-55 age group — specifically, a decrease in estrogen and progesterone. Menopause technically begins after a full year of missed periods. However, women may experience mild symptoms earlier during perimenopause, as the body transitions into menopause. 

Estrogen and progesterone hormones help hair grow and stay strong. But when those hormones decrease, your hair follicles shrink, and the speed of hair growth slows down. 

Does Hair Loss from Menopause Grow Back?

Hair loss can happen to any woman experiencing menopause. Is menopausal hair loss permanent? Hormonal-related hair loss usually grows back after a while, but some women might not experience regrowth if they have underlying health conditions like genetic hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) or nutritional deficiencies. 

Our founder Jessica has seen first-hand how menopausal hair loss impacts women.

“Our hair is an important part of our femininity. When our hair is compromised from circumstances out of our control, it can be devastating. I’ve helped so many women regain the confidence they lost due to hormonal hair loss. There’s no reason you have to accept it when there are solutions available like VFR.”

What helps hair loss during menopause? Next, we’ll share some lifestyle tips that can help.

What You Can Do

Supplements for menopausal hair loss

Menopause hair loss doesn’t have to be permanent. Here are some helpful lifestyle tips to minimize the issue: 

  1. Get Your Vitamins: Vitamins B, C, and D, along with iron and zinc, contribute to hair growth and health. Try to get these vitamins in your diet, or take supplements with the guidance of your doctor. 
  2. Avoid Tight Hairstyles: Certain hairstyles cause pulling and discomfort – forego tight hairstyles and try more low-impact looks like beach waves or a loose ponytail.
  3. Prioritize Hair Health: Avoid exposing your hair to extreme heat that can damage your tresses, such as blow-drying and flat ironing. Consider adding an extra conditioning treatment to your hair routine or using nourishing natural oils like argan or olive oil. 
  4. Minimize Stress: We can’t avoid all stress, but it can exacerbate menopausal hair loss. There’s never been a better time to practice self-care. Bubble bath? Calming yoga? A weekend in the mountains? Yes, please! 

These are all great ways to treat hair loss, but they’re not the most trusted menopause hair loss treatment. Lifestyle changes may help, but for many women, they aren’t sufficient to cure the root of the problem. 

Luckily, there is a proven hair loss solution for menopause: VFR. 

VFR: The Solution to Menopause Hair Loss

VFR, or Vantis Follicle Replication, is a 100% guaranteed solution to treat your hair loss. It’s much more affordable, safe, and less invasive than hair transplant surgery, and more effective than medications like Minoxidil

During the non-invasive, painless procedure, we’ll insert organic, plant-based pigment deposits into the dermal layer of your scalp. These deposits replicate your hair follicles and make your hair appear ten times more dense and full, without the pain or scarring.

The treatment is permanent, so your hair growth will never disappear. Our menopause hair loss treatment is so effective, our customers rave about their results:

…[Hair loss] has been something that has plagued my life since my early 20s… I was given the greatest opportunity to work with Vantis Institute and I jumped at the chance…There is opportunity for women, thanks to Jess and the rest of the ladies having created VFR.  I am so grateful for the work they’ve done and the huge difference it’s made in my life and my confidence in myself. I would highly recommend reaching out to them if you want to change your life. You have no idea how much you have changed my life for the better.” – Taylor A., VFR client
