Woman Shares Her Story of Growing Up with Facial Hair!
Jenny, a New York police officer, is concerned that her hair care routine, including straightening her naturally curly hair and wearing it pulled back every day for work, may be causing her receding hairline. She says she is very embarrassed by her thinning hair and has begun wearing hats often to hide her condition. She reached out to The Doctors for help regaining her full, luscious locks … and her confidence.
The Doctors send her to hair loss expert and stylist Shann Christen, who examines Jenny’s scalp and determines that an overdevelopment of sebum has clogged her pores and disrupted her hair growth. He applies aromatherapy to her scalp to relax the nerves and muscles that connect to hair.
