Hair loss can impact anyone, and for women, it can be an incredibly worrying time, resulting in anxiety and frustration.

Beating Hair Loss is the all-new Masterclass designed to give women support and information on coping with hair loss.

For this first edition, as part of Women’s History Month, we will cover the main types of hair loss affecting women with curly & afro hair.

 

Our Keynote speakers are all experts in hair loss and will come to share their knowledge and expertise. This is the perfect opportunity to ask your questions to experts, finding out how to get help as well as solutions to hair loss.

 

The event will be held on Saturday 19th March on Zoom and is open to the general public & professionals.

THE HOST

For Carole , founder of Black Venus Beauty, hair loss is a topic that is extremely close to her heart.

For the past 13 years, she has had to watch her sister, Patricia, face the heartbreak and frustration of living with alopecia, the medical term for hair loss, watching first-hand the upset and anxiety that it caused.

 

It took a long time for her sister to truly open up about how she was feeling, but once she did, Carole began to notice just how many of those beautiful women around her were experiencing some form of hair loss. She herself has recently experienced hair loss, so knows just how difficult it is for people to talk about, particularly amongst the Afro Caribbean community. 

 

Breaking the taboo around hair loss is one of her missions.

FORMS OF HAIR LOSS

We will cover the below forms of hair loss

img

TELOGEN EFFLUVIUM

Telogen Effluvium is a temporary form of hair loss  and occurs when there is a marked increase in the number of hairs shed each day.

An increased proportion of hairs shift from the growing phase (anagen) to the shedding phase (telogen). Normally only 10% of the scalp hair is in the telogen phase, but in telogen effluvium this increases to 30% or more. This usually happens suddenly and can occur approximately 3 months after a trigger.

CENTRAL CENTRIFUGAL CIATRICIAL ALOPECIA

Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) is a very common cause of hair loss in Black women.

Hair loss from CCCA occurs primarily in the central (crown) part of the scalp.

The hair loss radiates outward in a centrifugal or circular pattern and is usually gradual although some people experience a rapid progression of the hair loss.

CCCA causes destruction of the hair follicles and scarring leading to permanent hair loss

TRACTION ALOPECIA

Traction Alopecia is a type of hair loss caused
by constant pulling (“traction”).

The pulling is usually on some hairs more than others leading to the development of bald patches.

Often, this type of alopecia is due to the
hairs being pulled repeatedly by tight hairstyles.
