The sooner women seek treatment, the sooner they can start on the road to re-growth and, ultimately, recovery. 


In his new book, ‘Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness,’ Dr. Seymour Weaver asks women: what’s under your weave? The answer to this question may surprise you.

There can be a shocking secret hiding under a woman’s weave, namely, thinning hair and even bald patches. A weave can seem like the answer to many women’s hair problems—it adds body and makes hair seem fuller and healthier. It should be noted, however, that weaves combined with hair loss only makes the problem much, much worse and can eventually lead to permanent baldness. Seymour Weaver III, MD helps women to avoid the painful and upsetting experience of hair loss in his new book, Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness.

There are many possible causes of hair loss for women, including scalp infection, medication, genetics, and hair styling. Dr. Weaver, an expert in his field with over thirty years in practice, presents a thorough examination of hair loss and helps readers understand that, while covering up their scalp seems like the answer, it is merely a superficial solution for a medical problem. Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide also provides a detailed account of what women can expect once they seek help, from their first hair loss evaluation appointment to diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Weaver arms women with the knowledge they need to get to the “root” of this serious problem.
