August is Designated National Hair Loss Awareness Month

Although my hair has always been the least of my worries, I must admit, I do sometimes feel cause for concern. On a recent trip to New Zealand, I felt as if I was pulling out half of it everytime I went to put a brush or comb through it. I don't know if it was the stress of travel or the extreme sports I was participating in, but whatever the cause, it was worrisome. Obviously, I'm not alone in worrying about hair loss, as according to the American Association of Dermatology (AAD), hair loss affects approximately 76 million men and women in the U.S. For a more precise breakdown, that's 35 million men and 21 million women. As a result, the AAD has designated August as National Hair Loss Awareness Month. Thanks to daily stress, unhealthy diets, inactive lifestyles, and more, hair loss is becoming increasingly common. What is your spa doing, if anything, to help clients buck the trend?
