Impacts of Hair Loss
Hair loss is a common condition that affects people of all ages. Statistics show that 35 million men experience hair loss and two-thirds will have noticeable hair loss by age 35. If you’re noticing that your hairline is receding, or you’re seeing more hair than usual in the shower drain, you may be wondering how hair loss will impact your life.
While balding has few physically harmful consequences, it can be frightening or emotionally traumatizing to those who suffer from it. Failing to find a solution for hair loss can lead to anxiety or depression. For someone who is in the public eye, hair loss can also affect one’s professional life. It can also directly impact your social life.
While hair is an integral part of a person’s appearance, other reasons for emotional distress are largely cultural. An abundance of healthy hair is synonymous with youth, desirability and sexual potency. It’s seen as an indicator of status or health and well-being.
