Psychological Consequences of Hair Loss
Over the years, it’s natural to shed a few extra hairs than before. Although hair loss is often attributed to aging, there are other factors that might cause you to lose your hair earlier than you had expected, like genetics, cancer treatments, certain medications, or thyroid issues. No matter the cause, the results can be devastating for both men and women.
Society typically believes you must have luxurious hair to appear young, beautiful, and healthy. If you’ve experienced hair loss, people might view you differently. What’s worse, you might start to view yourself differently, too.
Believe it or not, the consequences of hair loss are more than just what you see on the surface. Research shows it can also impact your quality of life. One study tracked the emotions and social responses involving 120 participants who had male pattern baldness before and after undergoing hair restoration treatment. The results of the study found men had a significant improvement in their overall outlook on life after the treatment. In fact, many of their social and emotional beliefs reversed after undergoing hair restoration.
Coping with Hair Loss
Unfortunately, there are many situations in life where you can’t control your hair loss, such as age or genetics. As a result, you’ll need to find positive ways to deal with the emotional consequences of losing your hair. You can help maintain the right outlook by:
