However, we would always recommend the gentle route, with a product like our Jennifer Young Hair Loss Shampoo which enhances texture, body and volume.
What vitamins are good for hair loss during menopause?
Before taking any vitamin supplements, you should always speak to your doctor or a medical professional. That said, vitamins C, B and A have been shown to have some impact on hair health in studies. Vitamin C is typically associated with maintaining hair health during menopause. Vitamin B12 and iron can also help your hair's natural growth cycle to improve.
The emphasis with these vitamins in research is that it’s more that a deficiency in them might lead to a loss of hair and hair health, as opposed to them having a positive impact simply by taking them regardless. Therefore, testing to see if you have developed a vitamin deficiency might help you to navigate the right path for you.
