In his new book, ‘Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide,” Seymour Weaver III, MD urges for increased collaboration between doctors and hairstylists. Many women suffering from hair loss don’t seek a doctor’s help until it is too late; hair stylists can be the first line of defense to save women’s hair.

Many people who experience hair loss suffer in silence, especially if they are women. Hair loss is much more than a vanity issue; it is a real, medical issue that requires treatment before it can be resolved. Since hair stylists are often the first to notice a client’s hair loss, Seymour Weaver III, MD emphasizes the importance of creating a dialogue between hair stylists and medical professionals in his new book, Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness. Beginning this conversation is a key step in the fight to save women’s hair.

Hairstylists have a unique perspective on the health of their clients’ hair, because they generally see their clients far more often than a doctor sees them. Therefore, stylists are often the first to spot thinning hair—a simple fact that makes the hair styling community a crucial player in the fight to, ultimately, keep women from losing their hair. Sadly, many hair stylists don’t have the medical background or knowledge to encourage their clients to seek out medical treatment before it is too late; and, for that, many women bear the great burden of permanent hair loss.

Dr. Weaver works to close the existing gap between hairstylists and medical professionals. His book is a catalyst for the new and important relationship between doctors and hair care professionals; he begins the dialogue by providing both parties with the information they need regarding causes, diagnosis, and treatment of hair loss. By putting hair stylists on guard against hair loss, Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide ultimately helps more women avoid permanent baldness and happily keep their hair.
