Women experiencing thinning hair or obvious hair loss tend to withdraw from society, being ashamed and thinking they did something to cause their hair loss," says Rhonda. "It's a very emotional experience for these women to finally find answers!
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
Advance Techniques is sponsoring a no-obligation Women's Hair Loss Seminar on Tuesday, October 6, 2015, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The guest speaker is Kayla Martell, 2011 Miss America Finalist, who will be speaking out for women's hair loss awareness. More than 30 million women in the US struggle with hair loss, yet few know where to go or who to trust for answers. Kayla lost her hair at age 11, yet went on to fulfill her dream of being in the Miss America pageant, something she accomplished years after struggling with her hair loss and not knowing what to do. Kayla is now an advocate speaking out for women's hair loss awareness.
When participating in a focus study to help women understand the causes and solutions available for hair loss, Kayla and national hair loss expert Rhonda McCarthy both realized a consistent theme: women's hair loss is a taboo subject. Other than the medical field evaluating and treating any contributory illnesses, they offer little advice on how to deal with hair loss. Celebrities flaunt their full heads of hair and admit to using hair extensions or wigs, but little is ever revealed about their hair loss, if they experience it. Both women say that society tends to accept balding men, but perceives women with hair loss as being ill or having bad hygiene. Realizing there was a great need for education, Rhonda and Kayla started touring the US conducting free seminars.
Rhonda McCarthy from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, will be addressing the causes of women's hair loss and solutions, including the newest FDA cleared laser treatment. "Women experiencing thinning hair or obvious hair loss tend to withdraw from society, being ashamed and thinking they did something to cause their hair loss," says Rhonda. "It's a very emotional experience for these women to finally find answers!"
