When Fleabag said “hair is everything,” we felt it. The passionate speech given by Phoebe Waller Bridge, playing the eponymous character Fleabag, resonated with men and women across the world. “We wish it wasn’t so we could actually think about something else occasionally.” After the episode aired, hundreds of people on social media came forward with their struggles with hair loss, hair thinning, and baldness.
According to statistics, the estimated worth of the global hair market is nearly $90 billion, and is projected to grow significantly in the coming years. People all over the world spend a ton of money in hair care products—from simple combs to serums¸ conditioners, oils and high-end styling tools that cost thousands of dollars.
Bad hair is distressing for anyone, and while we’ve all had our fair share of bad hair days, hair loss isn’t the same thing. Men and women who are battling hair loss and baldness experience a significant emotional and psychological impact, particularly the women.
If you’re living through the traumatic experience of losing hair and are considering treatment options, here are two key reasons why you should go for it.
Hair is a key aspect of identity
Hair is a major part of how you feel about and see yourself. It reflects your personality, mood, and chosen identity, while giving you a sense of control. The kind of hairstyle, hair cut, and accessories used can be used to send a powerful message about a person’s beliefs and interests.
Hair Loss can Impact Quality of Life
Studies show that hair loss can lead to low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence, while increasing self-consciousness. Patients who are suffering from alopecia and baldness score high in terms of emotional distress, and even though the condition doesn’t have a direct physiological impact, it can cause stress, which leads to bodily changes such as weight loss and chronic headaches.
Hair loss treatment can be definitely worth it to deal with anything from subtle stares to bullying, and even for your own peace of mind. If you don’t feel comfortable with your thin hair or receding hairline, try our Scalp Micropigmentation treatment.
