Hair Loss – Test Your Knowledge

Quarantine is soon to be over, with the Government already encouraging us to go to work, and the hope that pubs, clubs and other social venues will be allowed to open soon.

It also means that hairdressers are going to be very busy, with lots of us having resisted the DIY approach, and are now sporting an unkempt bush that needs trimming back. 

With our first trip to the hairdresser tantalisingly close, we thought we'd put your knowledge to the test with the 10 questions about hair loss.
