Have you woken up to find more hair on your pillow recently? What about more hair in your shower drain? Or have you looked in the mirror and realized you see a little more of your scalp around your part than you once did? Or have you wondered why your ponytail seems much smaller than it did a year ago?
No, you are not crazy! And more than likely, you are not overreacting. Over 21 million America women experience some level of Alopecia (hair loss). Whether it be from a hormonal change, a major life change that comes with major stress, diet imbalance or even a genetic predisposition, it is scary to wake up and not recognize the person looking back at you in the mirror!
Despite that millions of women who are experiencing hair loss in our country- only a shocking 12% seek help. That means 88% of you are living and battling staggering strands day in and day out! While I could go on for hours and hours and psychoanalyze why I believe that statistic is what it is, let’s focus on the more immediate issue at hand. If you have noticed your hair is thinning or falling out- when should you seek professional help?
My response may seem a little trite. But the honest answer is… NOW! The fact of the matter is that hair loss is preventable and even treatable in many cases. But, once a hair follicle is dead, it is DEAD. As in gone. If you are still in the beginning stage of disbelief or denial, I completely understand! You are human, after all. And hope is a beautiful thing. However, the window of opportunity has a way of zipping past you when it comes to getting your hair back. The longer you wait to get professional help, the fewer your options will be.
An experienced hair loss specialist will be able to analyze your hair and scalp and provide you with personalized information regarding the current state and the future for your crowning glory. Only then will they be able to offer solutions most suitable to your situation.
So, if any of these words have spoken with you or you have found yourself glaring at your screen thinking, “Is now the right time?” The answer is profoundly, YES. I asked to write this blog with hopes that someone would read this and decide that it is time to get some answers and regain some control! I will be in your area in May to delve even deeper into the discussion of women’s hair loss. If you are interested in attending a free, private seminar surrounded by other women who can relate to exactly what you are going through- please RSVP and come spend a few hours with me!
It is time to make yourself a priority. I promise, you won’t regret it.
