On the is­sue of thin­ning hair in women, tri­chol­o­gist Dr. Sonal Shah ad­vises that preven­tion is bet­ter than cure. Is hair thin­ning in women com­mon? “This is my 27th year of prac­tice and in the last 12 years, ev­ery se­cond woman seems to have a hair prob­lem and ev­ery third woman is suf­fer­ing from hair thin­ning. It’s a re­cent mod­ern-day phe­nom­e­non.” Does it af­fect all age groups? “Thin­ning af­fects those be­tween 14 and 35 and be­tween 40 and 50.” What are the early symp­toms? “The dis­tance be­tween the hair in­creases, the di­am­e­ter of the hair re­duces and the length of the hair short­ens. You will no­tice your hair clip or tie com­ing off eas­ily, widen­ing of your part­ing or no­tice frontal thin­ning.”
