THE EMOTIONAL SIDE OF HAIR LOSS

Almost no one, given the choice, would want to lose their hair. The emotional aspects of living with hair loss can be challenging.

Hair loss, in a culture that views hair as a sign of youth and good health, is a stressful experience for both sexes.  People facing hair loss can feel they are no longer attractive or virile, and can feel less “powerful”.  Think back to biblical times when Samson tells Delilah that he will lose his Herculean strength if he loses his hair.

Many folks suffer frustration when it comes to camouflaging their thinning or balding hair.  It takes time and effort to style thinning hair in a way that conceals hair loss, and the inability to style our hair the way we like can be a daily concern.

One can become dissatisfied with the way a receding hairline changes their facial appearance.  Hair loss changes the appearance of the face by shifting the balance of the face to the forehead, resulting in a more aged appearance.

Physical beauty is one of the main factors determining self esteem. A person’s hair can be a large part of their feeling of physical attractiveness.  Self esteem and other self worth measures drop significantly when hair loss occurs.  Although this is a normal reaction to hair loss, it can still be challenging.

Because women are known for spending a lot of time and money grooming, curling, dying, drying, and styling their hair to make it look beautiful, when they begin to lose their hair, it is extremely traumatic. This cosmetic setback is quite intense when a woman is used to having hair and suddenly finds herself losing it. She can have a lot of trouble dealing with the reality of hair loss.

Although full head of hair cannot guarantee confidence, studies have shown nearly 75% of men feel less confident once they experience hair loss, especially in dealing with the opposite sex.

Folks can feel jealous or envious of others with a full head of hair, which can impact their own emotional and social life.  In extreme circumstances, some people really take hair loss badly and get highly distressed about it, up to the point of falling into a depression.

To combat these negative emotions, experts suggest exercise, revamping one’s wardrobe, dressing more nicely, and working to re-frame personal thoughts regarding hair loss.  Regardless of the cause or extent of your hair loss, the key to dealing with the emotional side of losing your hair is having the right attitude.
