I’m 62 years old with thinning hair around the front of my hairline. I’m considering getting a sew-in weave and was wondering whether or not it would help to relieve some of the everyday stress on my hair and in turn stop the breakage? I would also like to know if I should have the weave pulled back from my face or keep it swept forward as I have a full, round face? —Milly

Let’s address the cause of the thinning first. I suggest starting out by seeing a dermatologist who specializes in hair loss and having some tests done. Iron and vitamin D3 deficiencies, as well as genetic thinning traits, can all factor into the loss you are experiencing. Stress on hair that is already fragile may cause thinning to progress to Traction Alopecia (bald spots from strands pulled too tightly). And should you decide to get a weave, consider a side part, which will add angles and balance the roundness of your face.
