Hair loss and psychological problems

Hair Loss and hair problems are both for Men as well as for Women very delicate and not easy to discuss. Many people in this group are unsettled by hair loss, but also by the unclear information that leads to hair loss and what can be done about it.

Hair loss is not only a physical condition

Hair loss is not only a physical condition, but can also have significant psychological effects. Although it is usually worse for women, we should not underestimate the effects on men either. Hair loss can lead to anxiety attacks, depression and withdrawal from the social environment.

Much research has been done to better understand the psychological effects of hair loss. What we know for sure is that it is very important that you take the time to think carefully about what hair loss means to you personally and which treatment method best suits your personal life. A well-considered choice and objective advice offers the best chances of success and will be experienced by you.

The reactions to hair loss that can occur were shown in a large study in America. Especially the psychological side of hair loss has received much attention. These reactions are among others:

Hair loss can make men doubt their manhood. In most cultures, hair has been associated with strength and masculinity for centuries. Hair loss can significantly change a man's appearance. It is normal that people start asking questions: Do people still find me attractive? Will I look older? Will it have a negative effect on my career? Will my friends laugh at me? These legitimate concerns about hair loss can lead to fear and panic.

Some men find it difficult to admit to themselves that they suffer from hair loss, even to themselves. This causes some men to do everything possible to hide their hair loss. A classic example of this is combing the hair sideways. It is not unusual for a man to hide his hair loss even from his own wife. The inability or unwillingness to accept deviant hair loss can lead to ineffective treatment methods.

Friends and colleagues who make fun of hair loss can cause a feeling of humiliation. It can be very difficult to deal with such comments. If this person takes it harshly, it shows that a sensitive nerve has been touched, which often leads to even more harassment.

The reactions to hair loss described above can cause a feeling of desperation and a desperate person can make impulsive and unwise decisions.

The fixation can be accompanied by a form of depression. For example, men who suffer from hair loss in different parts of the head may fixate on a specific area (e.g. the crown). Fixation on a specific area prevents them from seeing their hair loss as a whole.

It is not surprising that some men are jealous of their girlfriends who have a head full of hair.

Although hair loss is common in men, men can feel isolated and alone. Traditionally, expressing feelings and concerns is considered non-malelike. The open expression of feelings is considered weakness.
