If you are suffering from hair loss, you are NOT alone. An article in the Irish Independent estimates that, “hair loss affects about 25% of the female population in Ireland”. Another article on the Journal.ie states that ” the results of a survey of 500 men across Ireland by the hair restoration company DHI has found that 49% of Irish men under 30 claim to be experiencing hair loss”. People should not suffer in silence. These days, there are many ways to address the causes of hairloss which will help men and women take control of the issue and regain their confidence.
