It’s funny sometimes how things can tie together. I have been listening to Queensryche’s latest album tonight, which consists entirely of cover songs. Right around the time that ‘Almost Cut My Hair’ came on someone sent me an email with a link to the American Hair Loss Association. Why?…

I used to be extremely concerned about going bald and for lot’s of guys it’s a pretty serious subject. It doesn’t really other me much anymore. I let what’s left of it grow out during the winter and then just shave my head the rest of the year. Easier to take care of and I don’t use much shampoo anymore…

Since I’m not doing much of anything else tonight I clicked the link…

The American Hair Loss Association is a non-profit organization that is set up to educate people about hair loss and hopefully help to make the lives of people that are affected by hair loss a bit better. There are so many different home remedies and ‘snake oil’ medicines out there that promise to restore your hair that creating a bit of public awareness about it can really help. It’s a huge deal for some people. When I was younger I was very proud of my hair. I think I recently posted a couple of pics from the late eighties and early nineties when my hair was well below my shoulders. When I realized that my hair line was receding it was extremely depressing. While not as serious or harming as the degeneration of eyesight or arthritis, hair loss IS a medical condition and legitimizing it as such in the eyes of the medical community is a good thing.

With the advent of the World Wide Web it is much easier to find needed information and I would have to tell anyone that I know that might be looking for hair loss remedies to go check out the American Hair Loss Association and see what they have to say about it. Products that are legitimate and recommended by the AHLA display the seal shown on their web site. That’s what you want to look for…
