Questions Women with Thinning Hair Should Ask Themselves

In his new book, Seymour Weaver III, MD empowers women to seek the medical attention that they need to diagnose and treat their hair thinning and hair loss, before it is too late to prevent permanent baldness

“What’s under your weave?” For many women, there is no more frightening of a question or ask, nor a more embarrassing question to have to answer. Thousands of women suffer from thinning hair and hair loss. Covering it up and avoiding asking themselves the tough questions only makes the problem worse, and can even result in irreversible baldness. Too often, women are made to feel as though it is a matter of vanity, but nothing could be further from the truth. It is a medical issue, and it is a silent epidemic that is sweeping our nation.

In his new book, Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness, Seymour Weaver III, MD encourages women to ask themselves the questions that they need to answer, in order to have any hope of fixing the problem or stopping it before they have no hair left to attach their weave to.

Among the questions women should ask themselves are:

  • What’s under my weave?
  • What medications am I taking?
  • What is my diet like?
  • What is my family history of hair loss?
  • What hormonal changes have I gone through?
  • What damage have I done to my hair through styling and extensions?


By answering these questions, women are often able to realize that it truly is a medical issue, not an ego issue. Even scarier is not having any answers.


In both cases, it is time to seek the help of a dermatologist, not an extension specialist. Dermatologists will ask these same questions as part of the diagnosis process, which Dr. Weaver demystifies with clear explanations and photos to illustrate his words. Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide is a must-read for every woman who is experiencing any kind of hair thinning or hair loss. Armed with his insight, women will be empowered to seek the medical expertise that they need and do what is best for their health.
