Hair is a big part of our identities. It adds personality and flair. It’s one of the first things people notice about you, and a key to how they describe you to others.
That’s exactly why hair loss and baldness can be so devastating, causing a serious decline in confidence, daring, persuasiveness, and self-esteem in men and women.
Hair loss makes us appear older than we are, can impact how we are seen in the world, and also how we view the world (as friendly and receptive to us, or not).
Picture someone you know with male pattern baldness – one of the most common types of hair loss, and an inherited condition. When you first met him, did you have a preconceived opinion about what he would be like, based on his appearance alone? Hair can make all the difference in the world when it comes to first impressions.
That same type of pattern baldness also affects women – and can be even more debilitating because women are under much more pressure to look a certain way, thanks to beauty standards in advertising and media representations. Hair loss certainly does not fit into that image.
But no matter what the reason behind your hair loss, if you’re looking in the mirror with baldness staring back at you, it’s natural to be upset. Our physical imperfections can spur anxiety, frustration, depression, and isolation. And your problems can snowball from there. Embarrassment over a bald spot can cause you to avoid situations you’d otherwise enjoy, causing you to miss out on social opportunities. Instead of living your life to the fullest, you’re hiding from possible ridicule.
Wearing a wig, toupee, or some other temporary solution for hair loss is waste of time and money. Not just because the “fixes” are temporary but because they can lead to even more anxiety about whether your “solution” will be discovered.
So, why opt to suffer? Regain control of your life and do something about your hair loss. If thinning up top or going bald bothers you, there are treatments available to help you feel more confident.
Hair restoration therapies have been offered in the United States since the 1950s, but techniques have changed a lot in recent years. The procedures available today are not your father’s hair loss remedies. And these days, more than one million hair transplant procedures are performed every year.
Isn’t it time you restored your outlook on life? In addition to feeling better about yourself, when hair loss is no longer a worry, you may find you have more energy, are more positive, look a good 10 years younger, and your social life will get a boost, too. What’s not to like?
