The Emotional Impact Of Hair Loss

Looking at yourself in the mirror and seeing a thinning hairline or a more visible scalp can be a hard thing to swallow for anyone.

Hair loss is incredibly common and can occur in both males and females as they age. Genetics, medications, health conditions, and many other situations can cause hair loss. It is a slow process and might take several years for someone to notice that their hair is not as healthy as it once used to be. 

Although the process of losing hair itself is harmless and natural in most cases, it can leave its marks in other ways especially resulting in a variety of emotional and psychological stress. 

The Impact Of Hair Loss On Mental Health

The majority of people experiencing progressive hair loss are able to accept it, but for some, hair loss can be a challenging experience damaging their self-esteem, and may also result in anxiety or depression.  

For males, losing hair could be considered a normal part of growing up, but it can still be very distressing as it affects a person’s confidence to a great extent. The image of a young balding man getting mocked for his looks is enough to strike horror in the heart of many young men who find their hairline thinning as they progress their adult life. 

But, it’s also more than just being laughed at. As hair loss is associated with aging, hair loss can remind us of our mortality and how we perceive ourselves. Some might think that their hair loss signifies the end of their youth and desirability and feel like they have become less attractive. Anxieties with hair loss often get bound up with other concerns about our body and add more to our insecurities about our appearance or self-esteem. For people already going through a lot in other areas of their lives, this can further add to their psychological strain and may even lead to depression. 

As for women, they are particularly known to have a much difficult time adjusting to hair loss. Women might mentally suffer more as they are more likely to develop a negative body image due to hair loss as compared to men with the same condition. Experiencing early hair loss in girls can especially take a hit in terms of dating and relationships.  

Hair is mostly linked with beauty, youth, sexuality, and sensuality in women and it is what makes them feel beautiful. When a woman experiences a receding hairline, she starts to believe that she is no longer attractive. And as hair loss and stress often go together, it can become taxing to behave properly in social, professional, and personal lives. 

In comparison to the general population, people with hair loss have an increased prevalence of psychological disorders including depression, anxiety, social phobia, and paranoid disorders, etc. 

Coping With Hair Loss

Hair loss can be very upsetting, but fortunately, in 2020, hair loss truly optional.  A variety of solutions are available that can help you prevent hair loss, regrow your hair and maintain your confidence.  

Below are a few helpful strategies that can mentally assist you on your journey to regrow your hair: 

Put things in perspective

You may not be able to directly control how much hair you lose, but you can control how you react to it. There is a saying that you are your own worst critic. You are probably harder on yourself than anyone else. This means you view your hair loss more critically than others. Moreover, there are thousands of people around you walking confidently with similar or worse hair conditions, and so can you. 

Be Optimistic  

If your hair loss is due to a specific condition such as stress, chemotherapy, or medication, there are high chances that it will most likely grow back. The majority of conditions that cause hair loss are temporary and often you start to see an improvement as your circumstances get better. Furthermore, using treatment programs from professionals can help you see favorable results. So, all is not lost and you can still expect your hair back. 

Choose A Different Style 

If your hair loss becomes noticeable, you can always cover it up by adopting a different style. If one part of your head has patches of hair loss, try covering it up by parting your hair to that side. Men can also shave it all off or put on caps to hide their thinning hair. Women can also invest in a wig or a scarf that complements their sense of fashion. 

Be Patient And Practical

People often commence use of products to treat hair loss with unrealistic expectations that their hair will come back to normal in a short period of time. It is important to understand that it takes years for your hair health to decline; in a similar way, it might take 3 to 5 months of treatment to start seeing results. So, it is important to understand that it will take some time for your body to begin responding to effective treatments and reversing the process of hair loss and/or thinning.

Consider Talk Therapy 

The emotional impact of hair loss can often get in the way of living your life in a normal manner. In such cases, getting in touch with a mental health professional can turn out to be a good idea to come to terms with your hair fall and learn better coping strategies to deal with your stress and insecurities.

Sometimes, you might have other conditions that induce greater anxiety and depression as compared to other people with hair loss. So, discussing your mental state with a psychologist can be extremely helpful in uncovering the underlying conditions of stress and putting you back on your feet mentally.

Don't Waste Time With Snake Oils 

If you are having hair loss or androgenic alopecia, don’t wait to treat it. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to stop and reverse it.  Time is truly crucial to the success of any hair loss treatment.
