And the reason for that is because if you keep choosing simple carbohydrates that release their sugar or glucose into your bloodstream what happens then is you’re releasing too much sugar in your body and this will be feeding the non-beneficial microorganisms in your skin and as a result you may experience inflammation in your skin.

As I mentioned in the previous video the health of your skin is really important when it comes to healthy hair growth if your skin is inflamed it will be affecting the Keratin in your skin cells which will then affect the faces of hair growth and that may be the reason that you’re experiencing thinner hair or that you’re experiencing hair loss during menopause.

And also in our body aromatase enzymes converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone and when this happens your hair follicles get smaller which will result in thinner more down inhaling and this may be the reason why your hair is becoming thinner.

And the reason we have to make better choices when it comes to carbohydrates is because our body can only handle a small amount of sugar at a time so when we eat a lot of carbohydrate foods insulin is released to bring our blood sugar levels back to normal or to acceptable levels and the more carbohydrate foods that we have in our diet the more insulin is released.

Unfortunately insulin reduces the blood circulation in our scalp which means less blood circulation to our scalp equals less nutrients for healthy hair growth.


Protein is a source of amino acids, cysteine methionine and lysine; basically cysteine and methionine are needed to make the keratin what is found in our hair shaft, which makes up the hair and, seventeen percent of our hair is made from cysteine. Which helps with the growth and width of our hair and that our hair grows thicker. strong and shiny, we need a lysine.

Will menopausal hair loss regrow?

Many different physical symptoms can appear after menopause, including menopausal hair loss. Many people are curious whether hormonal hair loss can be reversed. Yes, it is true! Fortunately, most hair loss caused by hormonal imbalances is reversible, as opposed to genetic hair loss.

Why is my hair falling out now that I’m in my 40’s?

Female-pattern hair loss, also known as androgenic alopecia, is the most common genetic condition. Women with this condition may notice a widening of the top of the head part, which usually begins when a woman is in her 40s or 50s. This could happen if you inherit certain genes from one or both parents.

Is it possible to regrow hair after the age of 40?

Hair fibers thin and fall out over time; unfortunately, they never regenerate. As you get older, your hair’s pigmentation changes naturally. Pigment cells stop producing as much pigment, and your once thick, chestnut hair eventually becomes thin, fine, and gray.
