Losing Your Hair? You Are Not Alone

Androgenetic alopecia is a common form of hair loss in both men and women. In men, this condition is also known as male-pattern baldness. In men, hair is lost in a well-defined pattern, beginning above both temples. The pattern of hair loss in women differs from male-pattern baldness. In women, the hair becomes thinner all over the head, and the hairline does not recede. Androgenetic alopecia in women rarely leads to total baldness.

Central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia is a type of alopecia that is the most scarring among black women. It occurs primarily in the central portion of your head. Middle aged women are most commonly affected.

Hair loss can affect anyone, even the Hollywood stars. Jada Pinket-Smith has spoke candidly about experiencing alopecia. She expressed how traumatic the experience has been for her. To keep her looks fresh, she enjoys using a variety of hair enhancement products, like, wigs, hair pieces, color, etc. She considers this process to be essential to her personal style.

There are several ways for treating hair loss. Trichology is the science and study of hair (from the Greek ‘trikhos’ meaning hair), and a trichologist is someone who can help in a variety of ways, including customize hair weaves, non-surgical hair replacement services, wigs, and crochet hairstyles.

If you are suffering from hair loss, you are not alone. Contact a trichologist today for a consultation to find out what options are available that might help you.
