How To Slow Down Thinning Hair Due To Menopause

Estrogen has significant effects on the hair growth cycle. During pregnancy, most women find that their hair grows faster and falls out less due to the increasing levels of estrogen in the body. In contrast, perimenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal women tend to experience thinning hair on the scalp and more hair growing on their face. This is due to the declining levels of estrogen in the body.

To stimulate hair growth and reduce hair fall during and after menopause, use Hair Growth Serum twice a day, morning and evening. Formulated with caffeine, niacinamide, rosemary and menthol to boost hair growth and reduce hair fall. Menthol is the active component of peppermint essential oil which has been shown to stimulate hair growth almost twice better than minoxidil. For best results, use Hair Growth Serum in conjunction with Scalp Stimulator to revitalise hair follicles. Gently massage scalp stimulator into the scalp and leave it for 20 to 30 minutes before shampoo it off. It increases the blood flow to hair follicles to optimise hair growth.
