Everyone goes through the natural process of shedding hair, but it can still be rather scary. No one is particularly thrilled to find a clump of hair sticking out of the drain after a shower.

Hair loss is often one of those symptoms of menopause that catch women off guard, bot more than 40% of menopausal women experience it. Why don’t we talk more about it? Essentially, hair loss looks and works differently for women than for men.
