More than 3 million cases a year.  The most common symptom is a rash on the skin, but sometimes the rash involves the nails or joints.

Hair Loss Problems


 Female pattern hair loss is a distinctive form of hair loss that occurs in women with androgenetic alopecia. This pattern presents quite differently from the more easily recognizable male pattern baldness, which usually begins with a receding frontal hairline that progresses to a bald patch on top of the head.

Advise and Tips


 Avoid hairstyles that pull on the hairline.

Tight ponytails, cornrows, braids, and anything else that pulls on the small hairs that make up your hairline can cause hair loss. The stress caused by these tight hairstyles pulls too strongly on the delicate hairs of your hairline and hair loss/thinning can occur. If you do need to put your hair up in a ponytail, use an elastic that doesn’t have metal like the Goody’s Ouchless line of hair products. It helps ensure your hair won’t get tangled in the elastic and pull out your hair when removing your ponytail. 



Q. How do I make my hair thicker?

A. Go sulfate free. Over-washing can dry out your hair, so the less you shampoo, the more hydrated it will be and the longer it will grow without breaking. While lathering, remember that "shampoo is meant to remove product buildup and oil from the scalp, not hair fibers. Make sure to  Stimulate your scalp. When you massage your scalp with shampoos containing peppermint or eucalyptus oil, you'll feel a tingling sensation. This helps increase circulation and blood flow to your follicles, boosting growth. Prior to shampooing, massage your scalp for 30 seconds,"  In one year, your hair can grow an extra inch. Another option is a botanical leave-in treatment, which  stimulate hair growth when applied to clean roots two to three times per week. Conditioner, conditioner, conditioner, when your hair is well hydrated, it is less likely to dry out and split, so use a conditioner. Your hair should be treated gently, like a delicate fabric, but it also needs to be regularly nourished. We recommend applying a deep-conditioning product at least once a week or every other week.
