Did you know that more than 80 million Americans suffer from hair loss? This condition doesn’t only affect men: About 50% of women have noticeable hair loss and thinning.

If you’re one of the many American adults with hair loss, you may have noticed its effects reach farther than the hair on your head. Both men and women with hair loss struggle with changes in their self-esteem and confidence.

At Honest Hair Restoration in Bradenton, Florida, and also serving the Tampa, Sarasota, and Ft. Myers areas, Martin Maag, MD, and our compassionate care team are dedicated to restoring your hair and self-esteem with our comprehensive line of hair restoration services.

What causes hair loss?

Though hair loss is sometimes caused by disease, certain medical conditions or treatments, or inadequate nutrition, most hair loss is a result of genetic factors and aging. Hair growth naturally slows as we age, and many men and women notice mild hair thinning beginning in their 30s and 40s.

Lifestyle factors can increase your chances of thinning hair or hair loss. For example, the dramatic hormone changes during menopause can trigger female hair loss, and extreme stress or emotional trauma can lead to thinning hair for both men and women.

However, if there’s a history of hair loss in your family, on either side, you have an increased chance of losing your hair, too. Although there’s nothing you can do to change your genetics, the team at Honest Hair Restoration can help regrow your hair.

How does hair loss affect self-esteem?

There’s no doubt about it — hair loss can have a dramatic effect on self-esteem for both men and women. In addition to hurting your self-esteem, hair loss can also trigger depression, anxiety, and other emotional conditions.

In the West, we associate hair with vitality, virility, and beauty. For women, hair loss can lead to feelings of unattractiveness and age. Hair loss in men can become associated with loss of strength and sexual prowess.

These effects can be even greater for men and women who begin to lose their hair at an early age. Thinning and balding men and women are frequently considered older-looking since culturally, lack of air is associated with advanced age.

This can negatively impact how you are perceived and how you feel in your personal and work life. For example, men with thinning hair may be seen as lacking the cutting-edge younger men have in competitive work environments.

The bottom line? For both men and women, losing your hair can trigger feeling less confident, less attractive, less capable in both your personal and professional lives.
