FDA OKs Cooling Cap to Reduce Hair Loss from Chemotherapy
By Stacy Simon The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared for marketing a cooling cap to reduce hair loss in women being treated with chemotherapy for breast cancer. Hair loss is a common side effect of certain types of chemotherapy – including the types often used to treat breast cancer.

Chemotherapy Isn't Only for Cancer Patients
When you hear the word chemotherapy what immediately comes to mind? Cancer. Bald. Nausea. Vomiting. Infusions. Sterility. Bone Pain? Upon hearing that word, most people jump to the same conclusions, with the same general consensus on how chemo works, who receives it, and what side effects it has on the body. The truth is chemotherapy isn't only for cancer patients, and affects each patient differently depending on how it is used. Chemotherapy is a widely used class of drugs to treat many different disorders including, but not limited to: cancers, blood disorders, and a plethora of autoimmune diseases. Similarly it can be ...

A Baldness Cure Isn't Here Yet, But New Research Is Promising
No one is claiming a cure for baldness just yet, but researchers at Columbia University Medical Center may have taken an important step in that direction. In a series of experiments involving mice and human tissue, the scientists showed that enzyme-blocking drugs known as JAK inhibitors can cause significant regrowth of hair when applied to the skin. The unexpected finding raises the possibility that these medications might be used to restore hair growth in men and women experiencing pattern baldness, as well as in cancer patients who have lost hair as a result of chemotherapy treatments. Oral versions of the med...

What Women Can Do About Hair Loss
SPECIAL FROM Next Avenue By Sheryl Kraft Everyone loses hair. In fact, it’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. But what if it seems like there’s significantly more loss than that? “Once you exceed that, you’re losing it at an abnormal rate,” says Dr. David J. Wong, clinical associate professor of dermatology at Stanford University. Contrary to popular notion, hair loss is not just a condition that men face: up to 40 percent of women in America also experience it. No ‘Bald Is Beautiful’ for Women Bruce Willis, Patric...

Does Your Hair Really Change Every 7 Years?
By Lindsay Colameo, Allure (Photo: Delphine Achard/WWD) If you've ever run your fingers through your hair and thought to yourself, Gosh (yes, gosh) my hair feels different than it did when I was a kid...or in high school...or even college, you are not alone. I often think back to the days of my thick, shiny golden pigtails (and later, my glorious adolescent hair flip) and sigh as I comb hair that now feels fine and wispy. And for years, I've accepted the explanation I get from stylists that about every seven years, your hair changes. But this week I finally got to the root of the matter (forgive the pun).
