Health Tip: Losing Your Hair?

(HealthDay News) -- Baldness, once thought to be a male-only condition, also affects women.

Want to know more? Here's some background information, courtesy of the American Academy of Dermatology:

  • Hair care practices can worsen hair loss. Avoid activities that can damage hair, such as blow drying on the highest heat setting.
  • Temporary factors such as childbirth, stress and illness can trigger hair loss, but this type of loss typically stops over time.
  • Talk to your doctor about your medications, and any that may contribute to hair loss. Never stop taking a medication without discussing with your doctor.
