Format: Paperback
I give this book one star for the shocking information I found in the surgical hair restoration section. Candance recommends Bosley as a resource??? That is the worst hair transplant practice to tell women to go to and more importantly she does not stress enough that most women are not candidates for hair transplant surgery, a few lines added as an after thought isn't sufficent when the majority of the chapter talks about hair restoration as a real option for women. My sister unfortunately got taken by one of these hair transplant groups that should NEVER have performed surgery on her and she is severly scarred. Women with diffuse thinning are not candidates because they don't have that DHT resistent donor hair that men have. Hello??? YOU Should have done more research and made more of an effort to point that out to women instead of pointing them along the way to BOSLEY. Why not just feed us to the wolves? What other harmful information was put in this book that women are going to read. Ladies, Make sure to do your OWN research, A lot of the information I found to just be recycled from resources I've already read. I was very diasappointed with this book!!!!

Remember when menopause was something everyone knew happened but no one actually wanted to talk about it -- or admit they were going through that phase of life or even admit they had questions about it? Well, hair loss in women, as author Candace Hoffmann makes clear, is a subject still in that "taboo" zone much like menopause was twenty years ago. One difference, though, is that few women KNOW that hair loss is common; it isn't some rare thing that happens to a few women. It afflicts about half of all women in some degree -- for many females it can be an absolutely soul wrenching experience beyond mere vanity when they lose any or all of their " crowing glory".

Hoffmann has fought her own battle with female hair loss for decades and she not only brings this personal experience to her book but also her expertise as a long time, widely published health and science journalist ( I remember first seeing her by-line when she wrote for WEB MD). This is a thoroughly researched book -- scientific and thorough yet easy to read and interesting, even if you don't have a hair loss problem but are interested in hair and health in general. I'm a bit of a snob about health and science journalism (because that's my profession, too) so I don't make recommendations lightly . But I absolutely give this book my unqualified recommendation and I am convinced it can help tens of thousands of women.

Format: Paperback
This book is helpful both to women and medical professionals alike, seeking to improve their understanding of Alopecia in Women, and find up to date resources for taking a proactive approach to treating it. The author canvassed numerous real-life experiences from women struggling with this condition and compiled many firsthand accounts that will both touch and motivate you. Since this book was written recently, I found the resources to be extremely relevant and up to date. Most importantly its obviously written from a non commercial, unbiased viewpoint, which is whats most relevant to me. I feel like I can trust the content found in its pages. I walked away from it with a printed out list of things to discuss with a dermatologist, and a solid action plan to begin diagnosing and treating hair loss.
