Like many older women, Carol started experiencing hair loss. At first, she thought that maybe it was a regular part of aging. “My hair was falling out in handfuls,” she says. She knew that some hair loss is a natural. Hair falls out and new hair grows in. But the amount of hair loss she was experiencing seemed extreme. “One day, I was running my hand through my hair, and I decided I’ll count,” she says. When she did, she was faced with the facts. “When I got way over 150, I’m definitely losing my hair.” The reality of becoming bald was very emotional. She decided she needed to do something. She wasn’t comfortable with this amount of hair loss.
