Suffering from hair loss? Don't wait to seek expert help:
Early treatment is the most effective treatment.
Penny James is serious about your hair, and she knows from her own experience that its beauty begins with health.
"I was embarrassed about how thin my hair was. It's an emotional subject, and difficult to cope with. Every time I brushed it, loads of my hair ended up in my brush.
"I wanted to know why I was losing my hair--and how I was going to get it back!
"That's why I went back to school, studying with The International Association of Trichology to become a certified Trichologist (a specialist in scalp issues and hair loss).
"You have to start treatment as early as you can, and you have to be diligent about the treatment. I used what I've learned, and my hair is healthy and full again."

Penny talks about hair-loss treatment
"It can happen at any age, for a variety of reasons," says Penny. "With proper care and diligence, almost every kind of hair loss can be treated.
"If you're suffering any form of hair loss, you are not alone: According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it affects 30 million women of all ages in the United States. Don't wait! The earlier you begin treatment, the better.
"Do book an appointment for analysis. We'll take an hour together at the Salon, going over the onset and history of your hair loss, as well as specific symptoms. We'll look under the DermScope, and I'll test the hair for other disorders as appropriate. I work very closely with top dermatologists--like Dr. Osei-Tutu, MD, FAAD--and can recommend other doctors if needed.
"To talk about it, please e-mail me or book online any time.
"I am very proud to say that I am the only hairstylist and Trichologist in New York City."
