Anyone suffering from hair loss knows it is a very lonely feeling. She also knows that anytime she sees an article about Hair Loss that she is immediately drawn into what that person’s experience is like, and what she can learn from the other experience. Such was the case as I was standing on the checkout line in the grocery store when I spotted the title article in the March 2013 Family Circle magazine, “The Health Problem 30 Million Women Have…Are You One of Them?” How could I resist reading this article? Shouldn’t I be informed about this problem? And sure enough, just as I had suspected, the article was about Hair Loss.

I bet many of you had no idea the number had gone up so dramatically — 30 Million Women! Yet, even with that news, it still is a very personal experience to each of us who is going through it, and who struggles daily with how to attack, or solve this condition. Many of you may think that you did something to cause this condition. Many of you are wondering if there are any cures out there, which may help to slow down this process. Similar to the condition itself, help seems to be very slow coming.

Penny Musco’s article “What Happened to My Hair” will not tell you of any miracle cures. She does not paint a ‘rosey’ picture for you about the turmoil of hair loss. What she does do, that may help some of you, is she accepts the facts for her particular situation, and eventually accepts herself. Her family (including her husband) still loves her, and she does not feel ‘shame’ anymore for having lost her hair. Although many of the “solutions’ she tried did not work for her, it does not mean it will not work for you. I suggest you use her “4 step plan to save your strands”.
1. Get to a dermatologist, pronto.
2. Opt for medical procedures first.
3. Consider cosmetic solutions second.
4. Be Patient.
