Over 21 million American women have thinning hair, and one out of every four women will experience some form of hair loss in her adult life. These statistics carry emotional -- as well as physical -- implications. For over three decades the Paula Young® catalog and website has offered women access to one of the world’s largest collections of wigs and hairpieces – at affordable prices. Now, for the first time, Paula Young® has launched a new informational website that offers practical solutions, personal stories, medical advice and facts for women coping with hair loss. Paula Young® (www.paulayoung.com) is pleased to provide women with a website dedicated to the many stages of hair loss. www.DealingWithHairLoss.com provides a comprehensive “go to” resource for women in all stages of hair loss. This site is a timely, invaluable tool for women who are seeking answers to their many questions. The site offers medical expert advice and commentary as well as practical solutions for each stage of hair loss. Highlights of the site include candid discussion on causes, features on products to promote hair growth and volume, uses of hairpieces for cosmetic appeal and more. A complimentary, online resource, www.DealingWithHairLoss.com brings together in-depth industry knowledge, real life experiences and respected medical advice. The website strives to help women feel secure and confident in all stages of hair loss. “This site has been created to address the concerns that we have heard so many women voice as they experience hair loss,” explains Joan Abrams, editor of www.DealingWithHairLoss.com. ”From women in their twenties going through pregnancy related hair loss, to cancer patients, to women who are experiencing the side effects of long term medications – the effects of hair loss can be emotionally devastating. Hair loss should not be something that is whispered about behind closed doors. The more a woman knows about how and why she is losing her hair, and the more medical and cosmetic solutions she finds, the more empowered she will feel during this often difficult time period.” www.DealingWithHairLoss.com offers in-depth information on these timely topics: ·         Hair Loss Causes
A detailed and constantly updated informational section explaining the many reasons women may lose their hair, including Alopecia, Chemotherapy, Diabetes, Menopause, Hypertension, and Trichotillomania, among others.

·         Personal Hair Loss Stories
