New Video launched for Alopecia Awareness Month
September is Alopecia Areata Awareness Month. Roughly 147 million people globally suffer from inflammatory or stress-induced trauma-based hair loss. With Alopecia Areata your body is disrupting the growth cycle of the individual hair follicles in the predisposed area and typically manifests itself anywhere from the neck up.
