Creating a Support Group for Women With Hair Loss
The most rewarding part of my day is helping a woman look and feel her best. It is especially true when I have the opportunity to help someone who is feeling helpless and frustrated because of their hair loss.
More than 46 million women in the U.S. experience abnormal hair loss. The average woman loses between 50-100 hairs daily. The problem obviously comes when the body does not replace these hairs, creating gradual thinning, or when a person experiences increased hair loss over time.
The immediate assumption, for most, when they see a woman who has hair loss, is that she is sick or probably going through chemotherapy. But for many women, the cause of their hair loss is never clearly determined or diagnosed.
