KIRKUS REVIEW

A first single volume compendium of facts about hair, its care, growth, behavior, and- regrettably- loss, is full of all kinds of fascinating findings, scientifically based but entertainingly presented. If the ""practical utility"" of hair has dwindled, from an evolutionary point of view, not so its cosmetic and psychological importance- certainly for those whose crowning glory may be thinning. Dr. Lubow discusses in some detail baldness, which is on the increase (tension is one of many factors); greying hair; dandruff; superfluous hair; waving and dyeing; hereditary factors; styling (the pony tail and the braid can lead to trouble); and general procedures of care and treatment with the hopeful prognosis the corticosteroids have brought for moulting males. A thoroughly informative and interesting job.
