Menopause: Making Peace With Change

Friday, January 30, 2015

All cells in our body gow through a cell cycling phase, and then an age phase where they change and finally a phase where they do not renew. When you ask how long your hair will be growing, to some extent it depends on your genetics, your nutrition, and how good you are to your hair so it will continue to grow. Or not grow. At age 40, we start loosing the hairs on our head, literally. They cease to be there, we start to drop from a max of about 100-150 thousand hairs on our head , to, well, lets just say "fewer." And the hairs you have left will start thinning and narrowing as well. You can tell this as hairs just start being farther apart from each other, and suddenly your hair stylist is sending you in to get your hormones checked, which likely is not going to give us a solution to reversing this. About 70% of women by age 80 report significant hair loss. And yet not all hairs stop growing. Under the influence of the male hormones the fine hairs on the body start to coarsen. So hairs that might have been downy, soft, basically so nu-noticeable you never noticed, they now become thicker and darker and seem to have "appeared" out of no-where, such as arms and legs. Rather than specifically age related this hair change is more years from menopause related. Hormones have a role, and it's more linked to male hormones, but exactly which and what levels, that remains to be worked out. For young women treatment of hormone imbalances may indeed cause the hair to grow.
