According to Jenica Bahun, founder of Jenica Hair, hair loss is a big issue among women, particularly young women and mums.
"Hair loss is a growing issue for many women and I want them to know that they should not feel isolated about speaking out," Ms Bahun said today.
"Most of the time, hair loss is a temporary issue and one which can be addressed but women need to get to their doctor to work out why they are experiencing hair loss.
"There are a number of reasons for this and the key issues are diet, hormones and stress.
"So many women have told me they are suffering from hair loss and they don't know what to do about it. I can help them to hide their thin hair and create the image of volume, but I encourage them to see a doctor.
“Mums are busy, tired and run off their feet. They don’t get time to rest or eat the right food. They eat on the go.
"Many young women are dealing with anxiety and other mental health issues. This is a major contributor to hair loss.
"The problem is that when they notice they are experiencing hair loss, this causes more stress for them which contributes to the problem.
"A lot of young women are also not eating meat. Hair is made of protein, so it makes sense that if you are not getting enough protein, your hair will suffer.
"Many young women are choosing to boost their hair volume through the use of hair extensions.
"It doesn't solve the underlying problem, but it helps them to cope with how they look and feel about themselves when they are around other people.
"Hair extensions are not what they used to be. Our hair extensions are made from human hair and can easily be clipped in. They look completely natural – so natural that no one knows you are even wearing hair extensions.
"Hair extensions have been considered for many years to be a glamorous way to style your hair, but for many women, it is a way to hide thinning hair."
