While American women are focused on getting lean and proving they can be their best, at least one in four women will run into an unexpected hurdle – hair loss. If it happens to you, there’s good news waiting, if you’re willing to take action. Hair loss for women can naturally be reversed or resolved more often than it can be for men.

Noticing that hair loss is happening can be far easier than figuring out why it is happening. From genetics to diet, stress to medications, and disease to external damage, causes of hair loss can vary greatly and just like any abnormal physical change, understanding those causes requires the assistance of one or more professionals who are experienced in solving such mysteries.
Less than 2 full days remain in 2014, meaning we have little time remaining to set resolutions for 2015. This tradition of setting a goal to make a personal change or two beginning on January 1 has both ancient and religious roots, but the prevalent secular custom that exists today saw most of its expansion as recently as the 20th century.
