self-esteemAs people age, it isn’t uncommon for them become self-conscious or lose self-esteem over graying or loss of hair. They wake up daily to changes in their appearance daily as they continue to age. They could wake up one day to a full head of gorgeous hair and, the next day without knowing what is happening, chunks of it could be falling out or missing. The result is not feeling as good about yourself as you once did. You’re not alone if you’re wondering if others are noticing these changes that are occurring and you may begin trying to hide those bald spots by going to great lengths because they’re becoming so embarrassing.

What Hair Loss Does to Your Behavior and Lifestyle

It isn’t uncommon for people to feel anxious when they realize they’re losing their hair. When someone experiences premature hair loss, it’s especially degrading to a person’s self-esteem and disheartening because they’re losing their hair much sooner than they thought. For some, this hair loss could occur as young as their early 20’s. Under these circumstances, it’s likely due to an autoimmune disorder like lupus, for example, or heredity. Your self-esteem can take a damaging blow in the following ways, which is why should consider treatments immediately:

1: You Could Feel and Look Older

When you lose your hair, it could make you feel and look noticeably older than your actual age. Because it’s common for people to associate thinning hair or hair loss with older people, they may believe you’re a middle-aged person.

2: You’ll Have to Change Your Hairstyle

As your hair continues to thin, your hairstyle will have to adapt to these changes. For example, if you’re accustomed to parting your hair in the middle and that’s where the thinning is occurring, you may have to begin parting your hair on the side.

3: You May Begin Feeling Unattractive

In addition to feeling pressure regarding finding new ways to style your hair to hide thinning areas and bald spots, your hair loss may begin making your feel unattractive to fearful about facing the public. As these feelings start the grow, the less confident, you’re going to feel about yourself.

4: You’ll Interact with Others Socially Less Often

One of the side effects of being less confident and feeling inadequate about how unattractive you feel is experiencing shyness during social events you typically loved attending or avoiding contact with friends and loved ones. You’ll begin isolating yourself, and you’ll find it extremely difficult to connect with others as you once did.

5: Anxiety, Depression, and Loneliness

As you continue to isolate yourself, you’ll feel more shame regarding your appearance. It’ll become more comfortable for you to convince yourself that you don’t deserve to be happy and that you’re better off being alone.

6: You’ll Always Keep Your Head Covered

People will immediately notice that you’ve got your head covered if you’re the type who never wore a hat or any other kind of cover previously. That will make them believe there’s something wrong, so doing this is only fooling yourself and no one else.

What you may not realize is that you’re not alone in this and there are others out there who are also suffering from hair loss regularly. You shouldn’t lose hope because there are many excellent options and hair loss treatments available that can be helpful.
