Female-Hair-Loss

Hair loss among women might seem uncommon but it is very common. Just because they do not show their balding spots does not mean they are not going through hair loss. In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology agrees to the fact that 5 per cent of women under the age of 30 years and 60 per cent of those older than 70 years are affected by hair loss. But this is not noticed by the wider public because most of these women suffer in silence.

Most women make it through the hair loss journey by having a different hairstyle, covering their heads with either a hat or maybe a wig, or simply shaving off their entire head as a way of being “fashionable”. The most common causes of hair loss among women are often discussed. But sooner a person starts treatment for the reason behind the hair loss, the better the chances of regaining a full head of hair.

Societal Pressure

It might not be the end of the world to lose hair, but for most of the women them it certainly is. It is because of the societal pressure and the rigid beauty standards built by the society. Hair loss among men is more acceptable by society as compared to the hair loss among women.  With this kind of perception, women tend to suffer a lot and it affects them emotionally. Their self-image gets deteriorated to a larger extent.

Emotional Effects

Outlined here are the different emotional effects experienced by women with hair loss.

  • Feeling unattractive:The moment a woman starts seeing some changes on her scalp, like thinning or bald spots, the first thing that comes to mind is her level of attractiveness. Women, who have a full head of hair or simply healthy hair, have a way of feeling contented with their beauty because it is a symbol of femininity. So when hair start to fall, every feeling of self-worth and self-confidence starts disappearing which can lead to mental health problems.
  • Low self-esteem: The next thing that starts disappearing with the hair is the person’s self-confidence. The beauty of hair adds on to someone’s self-esteem, and plays a big role in their entire personality. By losing hair, the self-worth also disappears and it becomes difficult for a person to expressing herself which leads to insecurities.
  • Embarrassment: Loss of hair also leads to embarrassment. Compared with a man in this situation, a women will not feel much confident. She will not be comfortable going out in public or meeting people because the hair loss she is going through brings shyness and hesitation to her life. And the result she will not want anyone to see her balding spots.
  • Frustration: As mentioned above, hair loss might not seem like the end of the world but for those going through it, it surely feels like the end of the world. Feeling frustrated for not being able to have your hair in a particular style, or sticking to one style throughout to hide a hairless spot could feel more like emotional torture. This frustration can easily drag a woman losing hair  into depression.
  • Feelings of envy: Although the green-eyed monster is a very negative feeling, losing hair can easily lead a person to such feelings. Hair is a sign of femininity and when you start losing them, you feel like you have lost the feminine qualities as well. So when you see someone else with beautiful long hair, the feelings of envy start eating you, which again adds more to your depression.

The Final Word

Hair loss among women can create a lot of emotional effects which can be damaging for a female personality. It can give rise to inferiority complex and makes a woman feel worthless. In such circumstances, it becomes necessary for them to opt for hair restoration techniques. Therefore, Dubai Cosmetic Surgery has decided to help such women with its affordable hair loss treatments.
