Stitch Virgin Hair Boutique, a retail hair store located in Long Beach will honor National Hair Loss Awareness Month with their “It’s Not ‘Just’ Hair,” a month-long awareness campaign throughout August.
The hair extension boutique’s website, blog and social media sites will highlight hair loss causes, and feature videos from hair loss experts, doctors, dermatologists and hair stylists to help educate individuals on the many conditions that cause hair loss and ways to manage it. Additionally, the campaign is designed to help others understand those who live with hair loss and the challenges they face.
“Our goal at Stitch Virgin Hair Boutique is not only to be a viable hair extension resource for those living with hair loss but to provide information on hair loss so people know what is best for them and their situation,” says Stitch Virgin Hair Boutique’s Owner/CEO Terri Dixon. “Millions of people deal with hair loss issues and it affects men and women of many races.”
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most common cause of hair loss is hereditary thinning or balding, a condition that affects almost 80 million Americans. Other common conditions that cause hair loss include cancer treatments, medicines and improper styling, but there are some uncommonly known causes that include hormonal imbalances and certain autoimmune diseases. The natural hair growth cycle also experiences hair loss during the telogen phase (resting phase).
“This month is also about recognizing that it’s not ‘just’ hair as quoted by many who were quick to ridicule Jada Pinkett Smith who revealed she was living with alopecia,” says Dixon. “Living with hair loss can cause many self-esteem issues, depression, and much more. The term ‘it’s just hair’ is offensive, hurtful and dismissal to those living with hair loss because to them, it’s not ‘just’ hair.”
