Coping with Hair Loss

POSTED: 01 August 2013

If you’re currently struggling with hair loss and considering a hair transplant, it can take its toll on you emotionally. No matter your gender, losing your hair can have a huge emotional impact and severely knock your self-esteem. 

For men, you can look to celebrities such as Bruce Willis, Jason Statham and Freddie Ljungberg, who are still widely regarded as sex symbols whether or not they have hair. It can be slightly trickier for women, as long hair is still deeply tied to our perceptions of femininity, but there are still a few tips you can try.

Consider shaving your hair
The very first thing that you may want to consider is simply shaving your hair altogether. The fact is that in many cases, you will look more attractive if you remove all your hair rather than letting the balding show through. Many men are surprised at just how good they look when they are bald! Women, of course, can also brave the shave, although trying a pixie cut or another short haircut can also be a very attractive option.

Consider your treatment options
If shaving your hair is not an option for whatever reason, it may be time to look into other options. There are many new advances in hair transplants that will completely change the way you look – depending on your personal preference, this may be something that you want to consider.

If you’re going to go down the hair transplant route, make sure that you discuss any treatment you may be having with a professional. This is to ensure that you’re aware of all the maintenance care techniques following surgery you should be using so that you can be sure that your new hair stays looking at its best.


Remember That Hair Does Not Define You
Finally, as best as you can, always remember that your hair does not define you. While it may feel as though it does and that you are just not yourself without it, it really isn’t the case.

For most people, confidence is what makes someone truly attractive, so work on your confidence regardless of what your hair happens to look like. If you have confidence, hair loss won’t impact you to nearly the same extent as you think – and people will hardly notice your hair.
