For African American women such as you, your hair is tied to your past and your culture. When the hair begins to thin, or extensive hair loss occurs, it can be devastating for you. Women of color have used their hair as a way of expressing themselves with various styles, braids, and cuts, and when a woman is unable to keep her hair the way they’d like, their image and self-confidence may be broken. Fortunately, when it comes to hair loss in African American men and women, the team at Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists can assist. We have two doctors of color in our practice, including Drs. Yasmin Mathlin and Julian Moore, who understands the unique needs of African American men and women.
How are people of color treated for hair loss?
The first step in determining the treatment most appropriate for a patient is to determine the cause of the hair thinning and loss. There are many different situations that may contribute to poor hair growth in African American men and women, which is why working with a doctor with experience is vital to ensuring restoration of the hair. Our dermatologists will determine the potential cause for hair thinning and loss, and then develop an appropriate treatment plan accordingly.
What are some causes of hair loss?
- Alopecia Areata
- Aging/male and female pattern baldness
- Hormone imbalances
- Hair styles that contribute to breakage
When working with one of our dermatologists, we can help you obtain a definitive diagnosis. Once this has been achieved, treatment options can be discussed. Because African American hair is so unique, it is best to work with a provider with experience in ethic hair care and treatments.
