Serena Williams is the number one female tennis player in the world and reportedly suffers from hair loss. Seymour Weaver III, MD provides a resource for help in his new book, ‘Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness.’

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) issued the latest top ten rankings for women’s tennis recently, and, to no one’s surprise, Serena Williams remained in the top spot, a fact due, in no small part, to her winning her fifth U.S. Open title this year. However, as amazing as Serena Williams’ life may seem, she must endure hair loss and it’s many side effects. Williams, whose many hairstyles may outnumber her tennis wins, can, likely, blame damaging hair styling methods for her affliction.

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 hair loss can do to save their hair. With over 30 years of experience to his credit, Dr. Weaver stresses the importance or early diagnosis and early prevention as the key to keeping women from permanent baldness. Unfortunately, many women are tempted to continue to wear weaves once their hair has started thinning, aided by the idea that many celebrities do it, too.
Despite its perception as a vanity issue, hair loss is a medical issue that must be treated by a doctor. Dr. Weaver opens up a discussion about what women can expect once they seek help—from the first appointment to the diagnosis and treatment—that can—unlike yet another weave—truly cure hair loss. Serena Williams may be a strong female role model, but women should think twice before they let their desire to emulate her extend to choices that could endanger their hair.
