HI! My mum started going through menopause about 2 years ago. Also she started to lose hair and she is desperate because of that. I told to her that it’s normal for her condition but it doesn’t help. How is estrogen related to hair loss? I want to explain that to her.

Hair loss in women usually starts after menopause when the production of the female hormone estrogen slows down. Before menopause, the high amounts of estrogen in a woman system protect her from the small amount of testosterone that women also produce. After menopause the testosterone produced combines with the certain enzyme to create DHT. DHT is responsible for hair loss.
