Yes, there is a whole month every year dedicated to Hair Loss, since it affects over 50 million men and 30 million women in the US alone, it is important, right? Let’s face it, with the significance society has placed in our appearance, and hair being a huge part of it, it’s not surprising that billions of dollars are invested yearly on preventing and treating it.
Surgical solutions like hair transplants or PRP, pharmaceutical options like medication and vitamins, and noninvasive solutions like hair thickeners or cosmetics have become so technologically advanced that nowadays Hair loss is not inevitable, but optional. For men, even though we can say that they are “genetically programmed “to eventually start losing hair, going through it is still devastating and can affect their self-esteem, personal and professional life.
Women, on the other hand, experience hair loss differently. It is common for women not to realize they are thinning until its already advanced. Since they think of hair loss as bald spots or a fully visible scalp, and that is not exactly how woman lose hair, the condition tends to pass unnoticed. If you are a woman with thinning hair, most likely you are having a receding hairline or an uneven frontal line, a wider than usual hair parting, a visible scalp on the crown or fine hair that is just difficult to style.
