Some have gone so far as to add our invisible "Combline" hair extensions to the front of their hair because they do not want to wait for their hair to...

Female Pattern Balding What To Do? Including Nutrafol Info

As an expert in the hair loss industry for over 20 years, it amazes me how many women are losing their hair. When a client visits our salon, I am often told they have FPB, Female Pattern Balding, which is an inherited condition. I am not a physician, but I tend to wonder why the rate of this condition is increasing every year! Our clients are often at their wits end, they have endured a scalp biopsy and cortisone shots, and some have paid out of pocket for Platelet Rich Plasma injections. I can not tell you the thousands of dollars they have spent...
