Trichotillomania on Casualty: hair loss by compulsive pulling

Hair loss and the menopause

The menopause is a time of great changes in the female body, when hormones change causing a period of adjustment for most women. There are not many women who manage to go through the menopause without experiencing some symptoms, but for some individuals, the signs are more severe. Hair loss isn’t often discussed as one of the biggest problems experienced during the menopause but it’s surprisingly common to a lesser or greater degree. Here we take a closer look at hair loss and the menopause and why it occurs.

Hair loss products available from our range

If you’re experiencing hair loss, you may feel anxious about the effects and be keen to prevent any further deterioration. Getting checked out by a doctor to rule out any underlying cause should always be your first stop because if there’s something triggering your hair loss, any treatment is unlikely to have much effect. Reducing levels of stress and anxiety are also very important as these can contribute very significantly to hair loss. Getting a good night’s sleep, eating a healthy diet and exercising can all help stimulate healthy hair growth. But in addition to all of this, we also offer a range of excellent hair care products which are specifically designed to treat and improve hair loss in a variety of ways. Here’s a closer look at some of the products we have available.

The rise in popularity of beard transplants

Hair transplants have been popular for many years now, creating incredible results in individuals who otherwise would have been left to face the consequences of widespread hair loss. But the technology has now become more diverse and instead of just transplanting the hairs on the scalp, there’s a growing demand for a different type of surgery: beard transplants. Although a lesser problem than scalp hair loss, more and more men are starting to recognise that they don’t have to put up with a disappointing beard growth and can instead have a transplant. We take a closer look at beard transplants, including what they are and their rise in popularity.
