The Hair Loss Woes of Naomi Campbell & Serena Williams

Many celebrities, most notably supermodel Naomi Campbell and star athlete Serena Williams, have been spotted with bald patches. With help, this problem can be avoided. Seymour Weaver III, MD provides information on how to stop thinning hair and avoid permanent baldness in his new book, ‘Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide.’

It can be difficult to remember that even superstars like Naomi Campbell and Serena Williams are not perfect. Both the world-renowned model and the legendary tennis player, however, are both suffering from an embarrassing secret: hair loss. Campbell, who has worn stick- straight weaves for years, and Williams, whose hairstyle has changed numerous times throughout her career, can likely blame their troubles on the damaging methods many women use to style their hair.

In his new book, Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness, Seymour Weaver III, MD, discusses what women with similar problems can and should do to save their hair. Weaver, who has over thirty years in practice and celebrity clients to his credit, encourages women to get help before the very real threat of permanent hair loss befalls them. Many women are tempted to continue to wear weaves once their hair has started thinning, aided by the notion that many celebrities do it, too. Unfortunately, continuing to wear weaves is not a solution and can, in fact, make the hair loss irreversible.

The medical community holds the true solution for women who are losing their hair. Weaver opens up a discussion about what women can expect once they seek help, from the first appointment addressing hair loss, to the diagnosis and treatment that can, unlike yet another weave, actually solve the problem. Armed with this knowledge, women with hair loss can finally have the confidence to get the help they truly need.
