Hair Loss: A Growing Affliction Amongst Young Women
Many young women who use weaves don’t realize they could be causing irreversible damage. In his new book, ‘Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness’, Seymour Weaver III, MD works to inform young women that they are not immune to the plague of permanent baldness.
Weaves are prevalent amongst women all ages and, in recent years, amongst women of all races.
This is understandable: many women love the look weaves offer their hair. However, young women who have used a weave since their childhood or early teens soon find out the unsavory truth about weaves.
In Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness, Seymour Weaver III, MD discusses the lasting damage a weave can cause for women and their hair.
While a weave can make a woman’s hair look great in the short term, in the long run, they can cause hair thinning that may become irreversible.
Women as young as eighteen years old can suffer the permanent loss of as much as half their hair if they ignore the signs and continue to wear a weave.
Thinning hair and baldness are becoming more and more pervasive amongst young women; however, a woman who is treated earlier for hair loss has a much greater chance of keeping her hair over her entire lifetime.
Dr. Weaver urges all women to seek treatment for preventable baldness, and he stresses the importance of doing so at every age. Young women are not immune to this problem and, in fact, will suffer the consequences longer if their hair loss goes untreated.
Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide arms women with the information they need to face their hair loss and seek real help for it.
Dr. Weaver stresses that for many women, baldness is preventable and that early diagnosis and early prevention are the key to keeping women and their hair together for life.
