ABOUT HAIR LOSS
Every day, we encounter friends, family, coworkers and strangers on the street who have some degree of hair loss. We may see it as part of their appearance if we even notice it at all. So losing your hair is no big deal.... right?!
Not necessarily. The above scenario assumes that you’re not the one losing your hair. But if it is you, it doesn’t really matter what anyone else sees, you might feel like your youthfulness, or even part of who you are is falling away along with your hair.
THE EFFECTS OF HAIR LOSS: SO MUCH MORE THAN VANITY
Several studies have shown that hair loss can have real and lasting negative psychological effects for some men and women. Research has determined that hair loss can have a real and “enormous emotional burden” that can lead to serious psychological disorders, including acute anxiety and body dysmorphic disorder.
Hair loss can have a wide-reaching and detrimental impact on life quality, contributing to marital distress, career problems, and depression. Understandably, these problems appear to be more severe in younger people and women suffering from hair loss; however, psychological and emotional distress affects men.
Hair loss has even been linked to degradation in physical health; one study showed female patients with androgenetic alopecia (female pattern baldness) were more likely to have insulin resistance and blood sugar regulation issues than those with “normal” hair. As you may expect, the stress of these negative effects can make one prone to further hair loss.
