Managing Hair Loss in Women
by Katerin on July 20, 2013
Hair loss is not very common in women. Male pattern baldness, while challenging to deal with for guys in their 20s and 30s with receding hairlines has become accepted in society. Plus modern men can now shave their head or get a buzz cut and look trendy. For women, huriair loss is often devasting. A woman's hair is much more associated as part of her identity; the color, length and style creates a lasting first impression. This is why women who experience hair loss struggle so much to find a solution.
The most likely cause of severe hair loss in women in androgenetic alopecia, a genetic disease that most commonly affects women in their 50s and 60s, but can affect younger women and teens as well. Other conditions related to the thyroid or psoraisis can cause hair loss too. Additionally, cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment generally experience hair loss as a side effect of the treatment.
Elline Surianello had thin hair as a young girl. By the time she was 13 she had realized significant hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia. She struggle to cover her head up and strive to look as normal as possible, but at the time there weren't many solutions available for women. Elline founded LeMetric Hair Studio, a small business that designs custom made hair pieces from high quality human hair. LeMetric's product is realistic looking and well constructed - a hair system from LeMetric may last up to 3 years. The ability to help women struggling with hair loss look their best became a life passion for Elline who also created a mobile studio so that she can travel to different events across the country to educate women about hair loss and help provide a solution to meet their lifestyle and budget.
