I soon realized that the problem was much larger. Women feel debilitating media and societal pressures on a daily basis, often defining themselves through their hair and hair style.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2007
While generally perceived as a male issue, approximately 40 million women in the United States suffer from the emotional and physical ramifications of hair loss, according to the American Hair Loss Association. The Women's Hair Loss Project (http://www.WomensHairLossProject.com)] unites and empowers women around the world who suffer from hair loss.
The new online community eases feelings of hopelessness, loneliness and isolation, provides an accepting, therapeutic environment for sufferers to share their intimate experiences and emotions, and disseminates practical information on its causes and treatments. It also offers a safe place to share common feelings. When one woman reads the private thoughts of another, they become uniquely connected.
The website, originally introduced in August of 2007, has quickly gained popularity, engaging audiences worldwide. "When I launched the Women's Hair Loss Project, I simply wanted to provide a vehicle where women could share their experiences and gain support," explained the Project's founder. "I soon realized that the problem was much larger. Women feel debilitating media and societal pressures on a daily basis, often defining themselves through their hair and hair style." As a result, she states, hair loss, regardless of its cause, severely impacts a woman's self-esteem.
The Women's Hair Loss Project is a deeply personal and intimate look at a serious and often untouched problem, exploring personal triumphs and coping mechanisms. Readers participate, share their stories and photos. Discussions range from wig and beauty product selection to media coverage.
The Women's Hair Loss Project has already garnered generous sponsorship funding. Sponsorship funds are being used to broaden awareness, touch more lives and help more women via a strategic online advertising campaign.
