Since we launched our blog in 2007, Style Chicks has covered women’s hair loss. It is a subject that isn’t openly discussed. This leads to viable solutions not being considered for both men and women who are suffering hair loss who do not need to be.
That is why Doctor Sharon Wong founded Get Ahead of Hair Loss. This annual conference is a public education event that brings together leading experts from the UK in the field of hair loss.
We had the opportunity to ask Doctor Wong a few questions:
1) From your standpoint, what is the most exciting new development in the fight against hair loss?
For me, cell regeneration technology will transform the way hair loss will be treated in the near future, regardless of the cause of hair loss. There are a number of different techniques but essentially they all involve harvesting cells which have the ability to form new hair follicles, expanding the number of those cells and reinjecting back into that person’s scalp. These cells could be stem cells or dermal papilla cells from the hair follicle or stem cells derived from fat.
2) What would you say to the women reading this that are experiencing hair loss and feel too embarrassed to talk about it?
Hair loss is common and you are definitely not alone. It is important to recognize that when hair loss is starting to have a negative effect on you/your life then it’s time to do something about it and there is absolutely no shame in having or talking about hair loss. More often than not there will be something that can be done to support someone with hair loss whether this be medical, cosmetic and or psychological support.
