"When I first lost my hair at age 11, I was told I had to learn to live without hair. It's not about the hair; it's about knowing my choices and being empowered."
Dayton, OH (PRWEB) September 19, 2016
More than 30 million women in the US struggle with thinning hair and balding, yet few know where to go for help. While it's socially acceptable for men to lose their hair, it seems a taboo subject for women. "When people see a woman with severe hair loss, they immediately think she has cancer or poor hygiene" says Kayla Martell, 2011 Miss America Finalist. Kayla continues "There are so many reasons why women lose their hair and so many new treatments now approved by the FDA. Having lost my hair at age 11 from Alopecia, I enjoy sharing my own experiences so women can learn about their options and feel good about their hair again." Kayla Martell will be guest speaker at a free Women's Hair Loss Seminar on Wednesday, October 5th, 6:30pm-8:30pm sponsored by HRC of Dayton. For more information go to http://www.hrcdayton.com.
"Trichology has become an important term in the hair loss industry" says Rhonda McCarthy, national hair loss expert from Ft Lauderdale, FL, and co-speaker at the October 5th seminar. "Trichology is the science of the scalp and hair follicles, a branch of dermatology. There are now FDA approved treatments to cleanse the scalp, return nutrients and blood flow to the hair follicles and stimulate hair regrowth."
HRC of Dayton is the only hair studio in the region to be a certified Head First trichology hair renewal center. Head First products are designed for all hair and skin types, extremely rich in natural active ingredients that are biodegradable with biocompatible processes. Combined with low level laser therapy, now FDA approved for women, many are experiencing remarkable improvement in hair texture, color and regrowth.
Another new development is the use of PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) for stimulating new hair growth. This process, overseen by HRC's medical team, processes the patient's own blood and injects it back into the scalp, causing hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. There have also been new developments with non-surgical hair restoration, including toppers and hair extensions that do not damage existing hair.
There's been so much publicity with celebrities flaunting their long, thick hair created with wigs and hair extensions, yet no one ever admits to hair loss. "During a marketing focus group years ago, I learned that so many women can't find answers and solutions, so they just withdraw socially" Kayla shares "so that's when I decided to be a national spokesperson for women's hair loss awareness. There are solutions and women need to know how to find their local expert that can help them."
"When I first lost my hair at age 11, I met with doctors who told me I had to learn to live without hair. My Mother inspired me to accept my fate and encouraged me to pursue my dream of being a Miss America contestant, even competing in contests without hair" Kayla reminisces. "Then one day a judge pulled me aside and said if you want to win you need to have hair. I got hair, and gained competition experience, and won Miss Delaware in 2010, going on to be a Miss America finalist in 2011. It's not about the hair; it's about knowing my choices and being empowered."
The Women's Hair Loss Seminar will be held on October 5, 2016, 6:30-8:30pm at HRC of Dayton, 2077 Miamisburg-Centerville Rd, across from Dayton Mall.
