Hair Loss In Women: How hair loss can affect our mental health

Dealing with hair loss is a challenge for anybody. No matter your gender, it's not an easy situation to be in. Loss of confidence due to thinning hair is one of the most difficult aspects of dealing with hair loss as a woman.


Repercussions of one's sense of self-worth can permeate all areas of existence. 


Hair loss is often a natural part of the aging process. Some hair loss is normal and nothing to be concerned about. That being said, if you are experiencing excessive hair loss, it’s important to consult with a dermatologist. They will be able to rule out any underlying medical conditions and help you determine the best course of treatment. 


There are many potential causes of hair loss in women, including stress, pregnancy, menopause, thyroid disorders, and autoimmune diseases. In some cases, the hair loss may be temporary and resolve itself once the underlying issue has been addressed. However, in other cases, the hair loss may be permanent. Unfortunately, hair loss is often a taboo subject, particularly for women. Many women are reluctant to discuss their hair loss with others, even their dermatologists. This is likely due to the stigma that surrounds hair loss, which can make women feel embarrassed or ashamed. It’s important to remember that hair loss is a medical condition, not a personal failure.


IDENTITY CONFLICT DUE TO HAIR LOSS

Many women's senses of self-identity is deeply tied to their hair. When people look at you, they'll form impressions in part based on your hair. One's hair can be a source of pride or, in the case of hair loss, a source of insecurity. Most people will invest considerable effort and resources into their hair since it is such a visible form of personal expression. Losing your hair can make you feel like you're shedding a vital identity component. Eventually, this can cause you to feel inferior to yourself and ugly.


Remember that your hair is not who you are when these thoughts arise. Even if your hair falls out, you're still you, and you can still accomplish anything you set your mind to. Don't let thinning hair slow you down.


PANIC AND ANXIETY ATTACKS?


Some people experience anxiety and panic episodes due to their dread of more hair loss or going fully bald. Perhaps you don't like yourself as much as you used to because you think you're less attractive now. This might lead to a downward spiral of low self-esteem.


AM I STILL SEXY


The most devastating effect of hair loss is certainly on one's sexuality. Losing your hair can make you feel less appealing and attractive. Relationship issues are a common result of this style of thinking, and they only serve to deepen the sufferer's sense of isolation.Therapy, positive thinking, and positive self-talk are just some of the tools available to help those who have lost their hair regain their confidence. A typical treatment for female pattern baldness is the use of a wig or hairpiece designed to mimic the wearer's hair. Yet, not everybody is thrilled to put on any of these alternatives. Wigs can make their wearers feel unnatural, which is a problem for many people.


Alopecia areata is just one of many medical diseases that can lead to baldness. The correct medical wig is therefore essential to purchase and use. You need to find a cranial prosthesis that blends in with your natural hair. Despite this, a lot of people change their lives for the better after going through something like this. Maybe there's a certain shade or cut of hair you've always lusted after; now is the time to give in to your inner revolution and give it a try.

AM I ANTI-SOCIAL NOW?


In the early stages of balding, many people try to cover up the problem because they are ashamed of how they look. When you can't get your hair to look the way you want it to no matter how much styling gel or hairspray you use, your confidence can take a serious hit, and you may start to withdraw from social situations. Depression, isolation, and social disengagement are common responses to the increasing invisibility caused by hair loss.
