Losing hair and menopause

Hair loss and the Menopause. Scalp Confidential’s Kelli Morrell explain the treatment options. Hair loss isn’t always first on the list of  seemingly never ending list of Menopause symptoms and because of that many women don’t realise that their thinning hair is associated with their declining oestrogen levels.
