We all take our hair for granted as indeed it is our ‘crowning glory’ and everyone has a bad hair day regardless of how amazing you hair looks. Whether it's a cows-lick, frizzy curls that you just can't seem to tame or hair that has too much volume or indeed hair that had too little volume. We've all been there!!!
Sadly, hair loss is a problem that effects women and men every day who are not undergoing any medication or chemotherapy for breast cancer.
We unfortunately live in a society where there is so much focus on image and without a doubt hair loss can have a tremendous impact on our self confidence.
The majority of women suffer hair loss between the ages of 30 -45.

Anyone undergoing treatment for chemotherapy .
Hair loss can be triggered by stress or if you suffered a mayjor or psychological trauma in your life.unfortunatly suffering from hair loss leads to a higher level of anxiety and depression.
It can occur post -pregnancy and after the menopause when women stop producing oestrogen.
By the age of 50 most women see hair loss because as we get older our hair density changes and strands become finer.
