Hair loss is mostly associated with men, but it is a condition increasingly suffered by women, althoughly rarely discussed, especially women over 50.
I asked trichologist Sara Allison, who specialises in female hair loss, to talk us through the reasons why some women lose their hair, and treatment options, including lifestyle and changes in nutrition that we can make to ensure optimum hair health in our 50s and beyond.
