Hair loss is a common condition, notably thinning hair and hair loss in women and can happen at any age for a variety of reasons. After my weight loss surgery in 2013 my hair started to thin, at first I noticed it when combing my hair, and then after a while I had areas around my face that begun to bald. I found this hard to cope with as the thinning was evident and the first thing I could see when looking at myself in the mirror. I’m not a fashionista, but my hair was a symbol of my pride and beauty, it altered my self-image and I was simply devastated.
