Overview


Up to 50 percent of women experience some form of hair loss during their lives. BREAKING THE SILENCE ON WOMEN'S HAIR LOSS is a much-needed, authoritative, and up-to-date resource for these millions of women who struggle with hair loss and its accompanying emotional toll and shame. With few books available on this condition, Candace Hoffmann, a noted medical writer who also deals with female pattern hair loss, discusses types of hair loss, the most recent treatment options, how to create a hair-loss treatment team, and how to cope with painful and difficult emotions. But most of all, BREAKING THE SILENCE is a rallying cry to drop the veil of silence and shame that hides the issue of women's hair loss in the dark shadows of denial and fear. Including numerous personal accounts of individual women's struggles with hair loss, BREAKING THE SILENCE ON WOMEN'S HAIR LOSS has become a definitive work in its field.
