In a recent post, I talked about what I have in common with a 13-year old balding boy. I’ve realized that baldness is not as uncommon as one might think. According to WebMD, by age 30 roughly 50% of men will begin to have thinning hair. Further, WebMD adds that women comprise 40% of people suffering from temporary or permanent hair loss . The Mayo Clinic, under its article on hair loss, lists common causes of hair loss as hormones, medical conditions (thyroid problems, alopecia areata, scalp infections, and other skin disorders). Over the next few posts, I’ll be exploring more about baldness sharing research and interviews. Stay tuned! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to share your story. Thanks!
