Hair loss can be devastating, and is a huge cause of stress for the majority of men and women who experience it. Hair to us represents a big part of our health, our attractiveness, our youthfulness. And while many people can sympathize, they have no idea what it truly feels like to go through such an ordeal. While it is a hard situation to go through emotionally, there are a number of ways you can help yourself deal with the stress induced by hair loss.
First, it is important to take control of how you feel about your hair situation. Rather than trying to ignore it, feeling unattractive, or dwelling on the negative implications, you take a great stride forward when you decide to own it.
Owning it does not mean accepting defeat. It means honoring yourself by not letting hair loss damage your confidence- knowing that you deserve to feel good about who you are. When someone is confident and accepting of themselves, you are automatically drawn to them. You don’t notice their hair, you look into their eyes, you notice their magnetism.
Just as importantly, owning it means knowing you will take all of the necessary steps to having a head of hair you are proud of and feeling good about how you look.
There are an abundance of solutions that cater to each person’s specific wants and needs. Knowing that it is entirely possible to have the hair you want and deserve; and taking the time to pick the solution that best suits you, will be big relievers of stress.
You can also help yourself cope by having realistic expectations. If your are interested in hair regrowth, educate yourself on how long this will take and always keep the end goal in sight. This will help you stay motivated to get through the often frustratingly slow feeling period of regrowth.
Lastly, know that you are not alone. Over 80 million people in the U.S. are affected by hair loss. It may be helpful to express how you are feeling to a friend or family member who has been through the same thing.
