Why should you care about these statistics? Because most people wait until it’s too late to actually do something about their hair loss or thinning hair. The primary cause of hair loss in men and women is genetics. Fortunately with the advancements of science, technology and medicine there are proven solutions to treat genetic hair loss in men and women. BUT THE SOONER YOU START, the greater your chances are of arresting the progression and possibly seeing re-growth.
Majority of the time people will try and navigate through the possible solutions to hair loss on their own. Unfortunately they can end up spending a TON of money on products, lotions and potions that may or may not work. I strongly suggest seeing a doctor or hair loss specialist and let a professional help guide you through all the different options that are out there. We offer free consultations at my office, all you have to do it pick up the phone!
