Hair loss is no joke! According to the American Hair Loss Association, two-thirds of men will experience some degree of hair loss by the age of thirty-five and by the age of fifty, approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair. There are a variety of causes for hair loss, and it is our job as professionals in the hair care industry to educate ourselves and our Clients. Nioxin is company that provides specialized hair care products for thinning hair and its website is a great resource for hair loss information. Recently, Nioxin Educator Seamus McKernan and Sport Clips Artistic Team Member Dorothy-Anne Lacey sat down to talk about hair loss and various products to combat it in this special Hair Thinning 101 video.
