Telogen effluvium is the most common type of hair loss that causes excessive shedding. Telogen effluvium can be chronic or acute. When the shedding lasts more than six months the condition is considered chronic. Chronic telogen effluvium is an indication of an internal imbalance that needs to be identified and corrected before hair growth cycle will be restored back to normal. Any type of physical or emotional imbalance--even a minor imbalance can cause this condition. It may be difficult to pinpoint exact cause as often there is more than one contributing factor. Some common causes include medication, nutritional imbalance, internal systemic infection, malabsorption issue, autoimmune disorder, systemic low-level inflammation,extreme stress, extreme dieting, etc.

Female hair loss is my main focus. Women today are very susceptible to several types of hair loss including telogen effluvium, alopecia areata, and androgenetic alopecia. I can answer questions about the causes and types of female hair loss. I can share information about natural holistic remedies to improve female hair loss conditions.


My interest in female hair loss sprung from my own experience with extensive hair loss. Determined to grow my hair back, I diligently studied every piece of information I could find on the biology of hair growth. After successfully re-growing my hair with safe and effective natural products, I felt compelled to learn more and to share this information with other women. I am experienced in blending custom hair loss formulas. I am also experienced in writing about female hair loss issues.

My hair loss information has been included in The Truth about Womens Hair Loss by Spencer Kobren, Naturally Healthy Skin by Stephanie Tourles, Alternative Healing by Bill Gottleib and Natural Health Magazine. I am the author of several books on hair loss.

I am a certified aromatherapist specializing in formulas for scalp and hair conditions.
