Dr Seymour Weaver Black Hair Loss Guide Fall Media Tour in Full Swing

Seymour M. Weaver, III, M.D. Author of Dr.Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness kicked off his fall media tour on The Nappturalite Radio Show with well-known black hair expert, Dawn Yerger August 19th. 

Nappturalite Radio was birthed out of the fascination and love of Black natural hair, natural beauty, and the natural lifestyle. The weekly internet radio broadcast is hosted and produced by Dawn Yerger, a woman that is passionate about natural beauty and all of its social implications.

Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide, goes many steps further than defining “good hair”. In it, he talks about what is really causing so many women, especially African-American women, to go through the traumatic experience of hair loss, including: medications, genetics,scalp infections and hair styling.

With many women turning to weaves when they discover that their hair is not as thick as it used to be or they uncover a bald patch, these only make the problem worse. The answer is not in synthetics, it is in the medical community, says Dr. Weaver.

When women don’t talk about their hair loss or cover up the problem, it prevents them from getting the treatment that they need in a timely fashion. When they fail to do so, it is often too late to fix the problem, and permanent baldness occurs.

Some of the topics that his book addresses include: the importance of seeking medical treatment, the types of conditions that underlie hair loss, the diagnosis process, and the damage that can be done if it is not treated in time.

With pictures, an accessible tone, and an unwavering message about seeking medical treatment (rather than hiding the problem with a weave or hairpiece), Dr. Weaver’s book is one that is easy-to-understand.

Dr. Weaver's Black Hair Loss Guide is destined to be a best -selling book that will teach the world how early identification of the medical conditions that commonly result in hair thinning among African Americans need to be diagnosed and treated as early as possible to help prevent permanent baldness!

Now, it is time for a national discussion on the reasons women are losing their hair.
