But I’m a Woman! What Is Causing My Hair Loss?

The first time I found a gray hair, I was devastated. Then something happened that was even worse–I started losing my hair. I took no comfort that I was among 30 million American women in a similar situation. I felt depressed and alone. I could feel people observing me. I began to rethink every action I was taking–I changed my shampoo, I stopped brushing my hair all the, I stopped wearing a hat. Finally, a dear friend convinced me to adopt one step back and incredibly look at that which was occurring. That is what I want to share with you today–five factors behind thinning hair in females.

On a day, about 90% of one’s tresses are growing and 10% is resting. Every 3 months or so, the resting hair is lost along with a new hair grows in its place. At a very basic level, thinning hair occurs you lose an excessive amount of resting hair and/or once the number of new hairs arriving declines. In some regards, similar issues causing thinning and balding in your husbands and boyfriends are plaguing us too. In other situations, women are unique and possess different needs.

First, the reason for baldness in several women is simply genetics. We inherited a gene from our mother or our father, possibly at some point we start showing signs and symptoms of female-pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia). You will find that even in this natural state, some hope still exists. We can take steps to slow baldness and restore a percentage of new hair growth.

Another standard reason for baldness in women is medications. Prescription drugs, OTC drugs, and supplements–together or individually–can produce reactions that will make strands of hair die and baldness. Often the culprits are blood thinners, gout medicines, hypertension or heart pills, birth control …

Some Tips on How to Get Women

Some Tips on How to Get Women

Three easy tips to get women:

1. There is no woman who cannot be approached. No matter how beautiful you think she is, all women are human. If you want to get women, you must first approach them. This can be very stressful, but the best way to overcome nervousness is to take a deep breath, and take risks. A lot of nervousness will disappear, when you realize …

2. The worst he can say is “no.” Some women don’t want to date you for any reason, and that’s okay. Rejection is something you should be familiar with in the process. Eventually you will realize that if you are rejected by someone before they even talk to you, they will not be worth the effort. Sounds like cheap advice your parents might give, but it’s true. On the other hand, if you are afraid or expect rejection, you will become your own worst enemy. Don’t expect rejection, but don’t be afraid, or be surprised by it. If your ultimate goal is to get a woman, then you must endure through rejection.

3. Be yourself. Every time you get a woman by lying about personal traits, you set yourself up for disappointment and heartbreak when they find out. And don’t fool yourself; life is enough like a sitcom they will eventually find out. You better be ahead now than having to reveal fraud later on. That doesn’t mean you have to come out with a list of poor quality clothes on the first date, but you also shouldn’t lie about yourself if asked. It’s better to be rejected early in the process than to be emotionally invested in a relationship and then discarded. On the small side, if “hit and stop it” is your goal, then of course it’s a lie …

Women Business Leaders: How to Attract and Retain the Best Women in Leadership

Women Business Leaders: How to Attract and Retain the Best Women in Leadership

Leaders take notice: a crisis is brewing.

Today, U.S. businesses are losing some of their very best talent – educated, experienced women – in what may be the largest talent drain ever.

Why? The balance of work and family, for many, is exacting too high a price.

Statistics indicate a disturbing trend that those abandoning their careers are largely high-achieving women, whose jobs tend to demand longer hours, who carry more responsibility and whose absence arguably makes the greatest impact on business. Whether they are pushed away by an unforgiving work environment or pulled away by the lure of family life, one thing is clear: for high-achieving women, life balance is becoming an increasing impossibility.

Business women play a special role in addressing this issue. Because we understand the issue so intimately – whether directly through our own experiences or indirectly through the women around us-we can consciously make an effort to pave the way for a healthier approach to success that honors career and quality of life. The well-being of businesses and the women within them are at stake.

What can be done to retain talented women? Many prominent solutions include company wide policy changes, such as paid parenting leave, flexible workdays, job sharing, and telecommuting. Unfortunately, many such choices are stigmatized.

While companies begin to examine their response to the issue, business women and men can take action personally – not by perpetuating all-or-nothing choices, but by using the talents that have made them successful in business to address the issue head-on. Some suggestions:
