If a man starts losing hair as he gets older, it is usually accepted as a normal part of aging.  Many women also experience thinning hair related to aging but work hard to hide it.  Women may expect the other signs of aging, such as wrinkling and grey hair, but hair loss often catches them off guard.

This week on “Take Care,” we talk to Dr. Maria Hordinsky about the causes of hair loss in women and how to prevent or mitigate its symptoms.  Hordinsky is professor and chairwoman of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota.
