    Living With Hair Loss: The Choices We Make - Taking Back Your Power

    Living With Hair Loss: The Choices We Make - Taking Back Your Power

    This episode focuses on moving forward through hair loss, and what that looked like for me. I know a lot of women are in a place of feeling they will not be able to accept, they will not be able to live with hair loss - but you can, I know you can. I am living proof of that. I share different parts of my story and journey to let you know it took different things along the way to get me to the place I am today. 
    Believing YOU CAN emotionally get past hair loss is so important.  Removing the fixed mentality that things have to be a certain way - that fixed mentality kept me stuck in my own prison for over a decade, till the one day things changed. I changed. My mindset changed. I learned I could be okay even though my hair wasn’t going to come back. I accepted my hair loss, I accepted what is, I accepting wearing wigs.  I found a new way to live, and I found it when I was open to it. It was there along, but I wasn’t open to it. 
    I sat down today to speak to you, to speak to the woman who needs to hear these words from the person who has lived through it, and who knows deeply all the emotions and feelings that hair loss brings with it. 
    We don’t always feel like we have any choices, but we do. It’s not always the choices we want, but we do get choices. Those choices empower us, and bring us closer to reclaiming ourselves and our power.
    When I stopped feeling like everything was happening to me, out of my control, without any say of my own whatsoever, and began to make the choices I needed to,  and take action over how I dealt with my hair loss - everything changed.

    PRP/ Exosomes Update - Got Results, Lost Results and The Importance In Confronting The Denial Of Our Hair Loss

    PRP/ Exosomes Update - Got Results, Lost Results and The Importance In Confronting The Denial Of Our Hair Loss

    Although I have been doing PRP therapy to treat my hair loss for nearly a decade, earlier this year was the first year I had the treatment locally in Beverly Hills by Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi, in addition to the PRP, I also had an Exosomes treatment. After 6 months I want to provide my thoughts and where I am at currently.
    I also discuss the importance or confronting the reality of our hair loss, whether or not we choose to treat it. In my opinion, living in denial can make the journey more difficult and at times also, practically and logistically problematic.

    My Hair Loss Story / The Cause of My Hair Loss & Learning To Accept Our Own Journey

    My Hair Loss Story / The Cause of My Hair Loss & Learning To Accept Our Own Journey

    This episode is raw and personal.  In this podcast I share with you in more detail the cause of my hair loss, and provide a deeper look into my hair loss story/ journey. Last week I had posted a video on my YouTube Channel that was meant to really just share the cause of my of my hair loss, and open the dialogue for others to comment on the cause of theirs or if they didn’t know what the cause was, to share that too.
    While I cannot advise what others should or should not do, I think there is benefit in sharing my story so that others can get a deeper look into a 21 year journey of hair loss, beginning at the age of 21,  and caused by the birth control pill Loestrin FE.  The podcast takes a few tangents, but my journey is like one giant tangent, so perhaps it works. I share some of my hair loss treatment regrets, and the things I tried over the years.  It took me a very long time to accept anything and get to the place I am at. It didn’t happen over night, and I think it’s important for others to know that, so they are more patient and kind and loving towards themselves when dealing in what can often seem like the impossible…. Hair loss.

    My PRP Journey Update and The Power In Decision/ Action

    My PRP Journey Update and The Power In Decision/ Action

    An update on my experience with PRP is long overdue, and over the last couple months I have tried to record a segment on this, each time only finding that I was left with a question mark and a position of inaction and indecisiveness as to how to continue forward. I found myself stuck. I was already being confronted with the fact that I was no longer experiencing the same benefit of PRP during the last couple years, as I had in my prior years. My hair loss shedding / decline was occurring more rapidly and after my last treatment in November,  I was actually debating on whether or not the time had home to close the chapter of that treatment in my life. 
    Well, life changed for us all, choices changed. A week ago I finally decided on how to proceed forward, and provided myself with a plan. There is so much power in making a decision, and taking an action towards that decision. The minute I decided to do so, I instantly found relief within myself. This podcast is definitely one giant clump of a run on thought, it's a little all over the place (so my apologies in advance), but I really wanted to get all my thoughts out to you, about where I have been at with all of this.

    Ricki Lake On Her Hair Loss Struggles/Journey & Path To Freedom

    Ricki Lake On Her Hair Loss Struggles/Journey & Path To Freedom

    Jan 1st of this year Ricki Lake came out to the world revealing her secret battle and struggle with hair loss that she had been dealing with for nearly 30 years. I met Ricki in 2012, she had joined my site, The Women’s Hair Loss Project, in search for help, support and understanding. We connected through hair loss. 
    I am so honored to be able to be joined by Ricki, from her home in Marina De Rey, for this episode of my podcast. It was an unbelievable privilege to sit down with her and listen to her tell her story as she shares how her hair loss started and takes us along for an inside and intimate look at what it was like dealing with hair loss while being in the public eye. 
    She also shares some never before seen personal footage from from the day she shaved her head, (which you can seen the videocast on my website) and also snippets of documented clips from when she revealed to her boyfriend for the first time (after dating for 20 months) about her hair loss struggle. Spoiler alert, he embraced her with loving and open arms, as any good man would… good news for those women who are concerned about dating and hair loss. 
    Ricki is truly a beacon of strength, and hope for others, and I am inspired by her courage to be able to step forward, and put a face (a very public face ) to this debilitating and devastating disorder that so many women like myself have had to deal with and often having to have done so suffering in silence.  Ricki Lake’s Documentary Site: https://www.thebusinessof.life

    Low Level Laser Light Therapy & PRP Therapy | Joe Tillman

    Low Level Laser Light Therapy & PRP Therapy | Joe Tillman

    I am joined again by Joe Tillman, The Hair Transplant Mentor to discuss the validity of Low Level Laser Light Therapy and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy for the treatment of hair loss. 
    I have personally chosen to never try low level laser light therapy for my hair loss and discuss my reason for that, however, over the years I have heard some women say they received some benefit and others say they received none. 
    I have been doing PRP Therapy since November 2009 with Dr. Joseph Greco in Sarasota Florida. Side note, I live in Los Angeles and have chosen to take the trip from LA to Sarasota (with no direct flights) to see him every 4-5 months for this treatment (not sure that's the exact prescribed timeframe to go for treatment, but it’s what I felt made me feel most comfortable). I have personally have found value in this treatment, but like I mentioned above with LLLT, I’ve also heard from women who have felt they received no benefit at all. As with all therapies, our bodies are unique in how they respond, and if they respond at all. 
    Joe shares his knowledge and insight on these two very popular treatments often being promoted online.  It’s important we have all the information needed before we can decide whether or not we want to try any hair loss treatment.
    Joe Tillman is The Hair Transplant Mentor, he has been working in this industry for 18 years, helping both men and women that are considering hair transplant surgery. He was one of the first people to ever document his hair transplant journey beginning March 18, 2002. Eventually what was his passion became his career, and he is now a full time independent guide for both patients and clinics. Joe is also the co-host of Spencer Kobren’s The Bald Truth, which airs Fridays Live 5pm EST on his YouTube Channel
