This website is provided as a free resource to enlighten and empower more than 75% of all men and over 60% of all women experiencing hair growth disorders at some stage in life.It provides relevant information, education, support and the tools needed to address hair growth disorders, and how to take effective action to address hair growth problems – thereby improving the quality of life.
Research has shown that men and women suffering hair growth issues and hair loss felt, despite the high physical and emotional impact of the condition that they did not know where to turn to for knowledge and advice in relation to tackling their condition. This resulted in them missing out on treatment that could improve their situation immensely and give them a better quality of life.
71% of women experienced a form of hair loss at some time in their life.
More specifically, 78% of women felt that their life today is generally more stressful than five years ago. Of these, 89% felt that this has an impact on their hair’s physical appearance.
Of the 18% who turned to a general practitioner, the overwhelming majority felt that their general practitioner did not take them or the problem seriously enough, and in many instances did not really know how to deal with the problem or have a dialogue about the hair growth issue. This caused increased stress and frustration and had a negative psychological impact among the hair loss sufferers. Ultimately this led to a reduced quality of life and a worsening of the problem.
If you have a hair growth disorder (hair thinning, hair loss or other) or you are a healthcare or industry professional (doctor, pharmacist, hairdresser or other), there is certain knowledge needed to be able to approach the problem in the right manner and bridge the communication gap to take control.
It is the mission of the World Hair Council to empower men and women suffering hair growth disruption. This would enable them to address their condition effectively by closing the communication gap to healthcare professionals. Ultimately, this ensures the provision of effective and proven treatment forms and informational dialogue.
