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.

Experience in the area

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.

What do you like about this subject?

I enjoy empowering women with the knowledge needed to take charge of their own hair loss condition. I enjoy writing about female hair loss and assisting women with essential oil formulas.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Many women don't know that most cases of female hair loss can be improved or resversed. As long as the underlying follicle is not damaged or destroyed there is potential for regrowth.

My favorite kind of brush is a mixed bristle brush with natural boar bristles and nylon tufts (no balls on the ends). Only brush hair when it is dry. You may use wide tooth comb on wet hair.   It is normal
