Matthew Landis joined us today to inform about the causes of thinning hair and hair loss, and how you can prevent it.
Roughly 50% of all women experience some form of hair loss or thinning before the age of 50, and most women experience some form after 50.
The common causes for hair loss/thinning hair is:
- Stress or Trauma
- Illness or Medical Condition
- Dieting or Poor Nutrition
- Rough Handling
Solutions towards preventing such hair loss is to consult with a physician who specializes in hair loss to try to pinpoint the underlying problem and treat it. The following products include Minoxidil (Rogaine) for women and shampoos or conditioners that will create a more fertile scalp to encourage hair growth. Other treatments include PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injections, Laser Level Light Therapy, Folicular Unit Surgery.
Matthew Ladis and Dr. Lucy Barr will be hosting a "Love Your Hair" event on May 9 at 6 p.m. to answer questions about hair loss, including a short presentation and refreshments. $25 is the cost per person.
