Hair seems to be hell-bent on frustrating us. We’ve got too much of it where we don’t want it and too little where we could use it! While we women are busy plucking, shaving, and waxing the hair off our arms, legs, chins, and upper lips, we’re fretting over thinning hair on our heads and sparse eyebrows and eyelashes. And while men are fearing receding hair lines and male pattern baldness, they are eagerly manscaping their unibrows, nose hair, and ear hair along with their neck and back “wooleys.” Nature has a strange sense of humor sometimes.

Whether you have too much or not enough (hair loss), there is solid help to be had in the form of targeted nutrition, pharmaceuticals, and treatments.
