About Penelope

Female hair loss can be devastating, and this is something I know personallyPenelope.

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism at the age of 11, and for the 25 years following that diagnosis, my hairline has inched further and further away from my face.

Going to the salon to get a hair cut or styled should be a relaxing, fun experience, right?  Instead, I dread the inevitable questions and comments about my hairline from the stylist. I dread the damage that that follows a dye job or a blow-out, and, most of all, I dread the three hours I must look in the mirror at my head.

In coping with and recovering from my own hair loss, I’ve used many tricks, tips, and treatments. Some have worked, some have been bogus, and the jury is out on others.

This site is intended to help other women suffering from hair loss. The site offers my reviews and thoughts on hair loss products and strategies, as well as industry-leading information to promote regrowth, and minimize further loss.

My goal is to steer you in helpful directions, and to save you time and money in the process.

This site is also intended as a forum for women who experience hair loss to connect, and share their knowledge and experiences.

Please do reach out to me at penelope@femalehairlossprevention.com with any comments, questions, or ideas!  I welcome your feedback and the chance to learn from you.

Best wishes,

Penelope
