Kids everywhere are getting ready for back-to-school. I thought it’d be a great time to share an awesome little girl’s story. 7-year-old, Amelia Sholty, is a client of mine at Transitions Hair Solutions in New Jersey. Amelia has alopecia totalis, which is an autoimmune disease causing complete hair loss all over the body.
When most people hear about advancements in technology it usually brings to mind things such as: aerospace engineering, computers, cell phones, or even automobiles. It doesn’t really conjure up images of nonsurgical hair restoration, but it should!
Summer is basically here. It’s finally time for sun, sand, and surf. Most of us love having fun in the sun, enjoying the beach, and other outdoor activities. This also means using the proper tools and products (such as umbrellas and sunscreen) to protect our skin. We all know the damage that can be done to our skin from over exposure to the sun’s harmful rays, but what about our hair and scalp?
Women suffer more intensely from hair loss than from men. However, a lot of progress has been made in diagnosing the underlying cause of hair loss specifically for women.
Hair: it seems to be such a short and simple word. It can symbolize many things such as beauty, youth, confidence, style, and even fertility. This is why for a woman who’s losing her hair it can be quite devastating. Some people may say “It’s only hair”. This is simply not the case for a woman experiencing hair loss or thinning. Even Rosie O’Donnell recently tweeted a picture of her hair loss struggles saying “male pattern baldness...aging is fun”. But seriously, whether it’s permanent, or temporary due to a medical condition, hereditary, or stress-related, it can have a major impact on a woman’s self-esteem. This can lead to a loss of self-confidence and self-worth. How do I know? I’ve seen it first hand for the past 21 years.
There are many reasons your hair might be falling out, including the side effects of certain medications. Find out if a medication you are taking is causing temporary hair loss or male or female pattern baldness.
