Why it matters
Hair loss affects around 1 in 3 women, so roughly 30 million in the U.S. alone, at some point in their lives. In recent years, medical experts have seen an increase in patients across the country suffering from stress-related hair loss. Internet searches alone for hair loss have increased by 8 percent in the 12 months since February 2021.
