Hi, my name is Lynn and two years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Whilst the treatment was harsh, losing my hair was a huge blow to my confidence and self-esteem and fueled my desire to help others who’ve been through a similar situation. I was bald for many months during the treatment and, although my hair has grown back, I can identify with those who are still suffering.
Why I Want to Help People with Hair Loss
Our self-image is important to us and our hair plays a big role in how we feel about ourselves.
We would all love to have a beautiful, full hair of head – both men and women of all ages. Whether it’s curly or straight, long or short, having great hair plays a key role in our self-confidence and self-esteem.
Even though I lost my hair through cancer treatment, it is not the only cause of hair loss. I want to find out about the other causes, and whether there is a solution to the problem suffered by so many people. Prevention is better than cure but, if it’s already happening to you, halting the cycle of hair loss is the next best thing.
Hair Loss Myths
Since hair loss is such a common and undesired condition, we have been swamped with hair loss myths by companies to advance sales of their products. Because of our desire to eliminate hair and scalp problems from our lives, and the fact we spend a large amount of cash in this pursuit, many hair product companies have jumped on the bandwagon to take advantage of this. Perpetuating these myths, in turn, increases sales but, for the most part, we should see them for what they are – myths.
I could talk all day about hair loss myths and not run out of things to say. My point is this: most of the facts we think we know about hair loss are actually hair loss myths. If you are suffering from hair loss I suggest you should consult your doctor. He will be able to give you a factual reason for your hair loss and advise you on what types of treatments would work in your specific case.
I will be sourcing and posting a variety of articles about hair and scalp problems and hope that you find all or some of them helpful. There may not be a cure, but we might find a solution to the problem.
I welcome any comments and interactions.
