Hair Loss and Self Confidence

Hair Loss and Self Confidence

It’s one of the top reasons that patients come to Robotic Hair Restoration of Long Island. Hair loss brings up difficult feelings for those who suffer from it. Thinning hair can affect your self confidence and the research bears this out. According to a study of men in five European countries, over 70 percent of men reported that hair is an important feature of image, while 62 percent of men said that hair loss can affect self esteem or self confidence. At RHRLI, we know there’s a strong connection between hair loss and self-image, which is why we offer a revolutionary minimally invasive permanent solution for your hair loss.

Men, Hair Loss, and Self Esteem

So, why does the loss of hair cause men to lose self esteem? David Fenton, of the British Association of Dermatologists, tells the BBC that he thinks media depictions of physical perfection cause men to want perfect hair.

“People create confidence and self-esteem from it, and when they lose even a little bit, if their character and confidence is based on that, they’re going to have severe emotional and psychological impacts,” he says.

Adam Khoudja, a police officer and Army National Guardsman from Wayne, N.J. told ABC News, he decided to seek surgery after a female co-worker commented on his hair loss. “That didn’t just ruin my day — that stayed with me,” he said. More and more, hair restoration surgery has become a preferred solution. It’s increased by 27 percent since 2012, according to the website Healthy State.

Women and Hair Loss

Hair loss can also be devastating for women as hair is often associated with beauty. Writing for the British website

“At least twice a day, I find myself staring at the tops of strangers’ heads on the subway, fixating on the thickness of their hair and the size of their parts,” she writes. “I’ve become obsessed with and envious of other people’s thick hair.”

The American Hair Loss Council suggests talking to a hair loss specialist who can help women make decisions about their hair loss.
