Proceeds benefit Lafayette cancer center

BREWER - L Factor salon owner and hair stylist Gina Leonard has seen, in more ways than one, the effects cancer can have on the human body.

"I'm shaving heads and I'm touched by cancer all the time. We just lost one of my employee's mothers to cancer," explained Leonard. "My mom is a cancer survivor, and I lost an aunt to cancer; losing her is what catapulted me. I just try and turn it into a positive."

Female hair loss

Female hair loss is a very sensitive subject, but one that needs to be addressed. If you are experiencing it yourself, know that you are not alone: I suffer from it, my mother suffers from it, and so do roughly 75 percent of my female clients. No matter how you look at it, it is real and it is there. It is better to be informed and battle it early than to ignore it and hope that your hair is going to grow back. Fortunately, there are many options to consider if you are suffering from hair loss or thinning hair. I know that I won't cover them all, but I will attempt to leave you better equipped after reading this article.

First of all, genetics plays the biggest role in your fate when it comes to hair loss or thinning hair. Start looking at your genetic line on your mother's side, specifically your mother's father. If your maternal grandfather was bald, chances are you are going to have an issue. Sadly, if you notice thinning hair on yourself already, you really are up against a wall. The good news is that there are products available to help you keep what you have got, but you have to start now.
