Hair Loss Clinic Achieves Online PR Scotland.
Mattel, the manufacturer of Barbie dolls has gained the support of hair loss clinic, Hair Solved for the production of bald Barbie dolls.
The dolls are aimed at youngsters who have suffered hair loss from medical treatments.
Plans for the special Barbie came after an online petition was launched for the toy to try to help young girls deal with what is often a traumatising experience for them.
Hair Solved, who treat manyb young girls with some as young as 10, are in full support of the toy as it will provide a degree of normality for many of their patients.
