O, Magazine's Hair Extravaganza!

I was recently asked to discuss female hair loss with O, Magazine for their September issue, which is available on newsstands now. The 'Hair Extravaganza' issue is packed with info on all things hair related, look for it today, it shouldn't be hard to spot since Oprah is on the cover sporting a reported 3 1/2lb. wig! 

Key facts about women’s hair loss: 
  • Over 30 million women in the US suffer from hair loss
  • More than half of all women over 40 experience hair loss
  • Women can inherit a ‘hair loss gene,’ just like men
  • Hair loss occurs differently in women than in men - i.e., “thinning”
  • Hormonal changes and nutrition often play a key factor in women’s hair loss - due to menopause or perimenopause, pregnancy, medications, crash diets and bad health
  • New genetic tests can predict a woman’s risk of hair loss and their response to treatment
