Menopausal Hair Loss greatly affects women’s self-esteem and confidence. Our hair is something we can control by styling and cutting it as we see fit. It is our own personality, an expression of who we are. By losing our hair, we may feel less like ourselves as women and feel like our control no longer withstands. It can become emotional and create a mental psyche and affect our self-esteem. We can be warriors at moments, but our hair is what empowers us.
