My Menopause Blog: Hair Raking

Earlier, I was sharing some morning sun with my neighbour's Gareth and Sarah when Gareth commented on my persistent hair raking.

DEFINITION; Hair Raking: the act of running ones fingers through ones hair and removing loose strands, of which I have a shocking number, thanks to peri-menopause.
Before I could explain my actions, Sarah, chirped in. "She's weeding".

Oh my goodness...do I have tons of hair falling out. I think I have lost half of my hair since December and it doesn't stop coming out. I'm amazed I am not bald. Is this a side effect of menopause?

Yes it's true. But hair loss can also be a sign of other problems. Here's a link to Susan Weeds website on Hairy problems. She's very well respected on issues related to aging.
