I am not overly vain and I have resigned myself to getting old and not being able to do as much as I could in my youth. But I have had a full, even luxurious head of hair my entire life and if I can keep it, I want to do so. Right now, my hairline is receding in the front and there is a spot on the top where hair is disappearing fast. This is why I read Hair Loss: Options for Restoration and Reversal by Gustavo J. Gomez Ph.D. I am a methodical person and I like to approach problems like hair loss in a systematic and scientific manner. I would rather read a book by an expert than react to a sixty-second infomercial. The only drawback to this way of doing things is finding the right book. If you are in a similar situation as to what you can do about hair loss, let me assure you. This is the book for you.

Hair Loss by Gustavo J. Gomez does exactly what the title and subtitle implies. It lists your options to combat and restore the loss of hair in a clear and very organized manner, one that is not intent on selling you something but just giving you information you can use. The writing is clear and concise. The explanations reasonable and scientific. Hair Loss: Options for Restoration and Reversal has helped me decide which direction I need to go in as I tackle this problem. It is rare to find the book that tells you everything you need to know on a subject. When it comes to hair loss, Gustavo J. Gomez has written that book.

How we look is extremely important. People tend to judge us by our outer appearance. Our body type, our face, our smile and our hair get the most attention. Did you know that our way of life and how we handle stress are some of the factors that affect our body and particularly our hair. Hair Loss: Options for Restoration & Reversal by Gustavo J. Gomez, Ph.D. is an educational, comprehensive book designed to teach the causes behind hair loss and the remedies to provide solutions to the problem. Dr. Gomez has covered everything in this book, from the Anatomy and Physiology of Hair Growth, Scalp Conditions Resulting in Hair Loss, and The Graying Hair Process to Future Trends in Hair Restoration Solutions.

Dr. Gomez was able to research and learn about the various aspects of hair loss when he began to notice some hair thinning of his own. This set him on a journey to discover the reasons behind it, the importance of preventive maintenance and how to remedy hair loss. Dr. Gomez has added an appendix and glossary for readers in a comprehensive resource tool that they can refer to. These tools will help to educate the reader on the statistical data and the various ways that hair loss can affect them - from hormones to aging, as well as the different types of alopecia deficiencies. At some point in time we will all experience issues with hair loss, so why not become educated now on the subject that is affecting millions.

This is such a great book. I was able to relate to this book personally because once my daughter became a hair and beauty expert over a decade ago, her focus has always been on healthy hair and skin. Regardless of the services that she provided for the clients, the main focus was health. These practices are what she has taught me and that I have been practicing myself for years. Dr. Gomez was on point with the information that he provided and each chapter is self contained, regardless of where you are in this journey. He even has a chapter on Hygiene and Hair Care that discusses combing, shampooing, brushing and blow-drying your hair, which are important preventive maintenance practices to ward off hair loss. Add this book to your library and purchase a few copies for your friends and loved ones.
