Houston Dermatologist Seymour Weaver III, MD offers women insight into the process of diagnosing, treating, and reversing hair loss with his new book, ‘Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness.’
Many women suffer from the painful experience of hair loss; even celebrities like Naomi Campbell and January Jones are susceptible. Even worse, few women know where to turn when they begin losing their hair or are even aware that hair loss is a real, medical problem and not just an issue of vanity. In his new book, Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness, Seymour Weaver III, MD tackles this problem head-on, providing a much-needed resource for women with hair loss.
Despite the title, Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide is a guide for women of all ethnicities. These women often don’t know that they need to turn to a doctor. When Naomi Campbell’s hair loss was revealed by The Huffington Post last August, experts speculated that she has waited too long to seek treatment. Waiting too long can result in permanent baldness, but, with the help of Dr. Weaver’s book, many women can avoid that irreversible damage.
Dr. Weaver demystifies the process of turning to a doctor for answers to hair loss. His book includes pictures and a detailed guide of the steps to diagnosis, such as consideration of a patient’s medical history, scalp examination, biopsy evaluation of the scalp and a final diagnosis. This helps eliminate fear of the unknowns that may occur during the doctor’s visit and motivates women experiencing hair loss to seek treatment.
Once women understand the importance of enlisting the help of a dermatologist and realize that it is a simple process, they can stop being afraid and start finding answers and treatment.
