The problems of hair loss have been with us since man started walking on two feet unlike his more hirsute jungle cousins. For both the male and female gender, evolution promptly stopped when it got to the top of the head. It has since been suggested this is because the scalp needs to be protected from the rays of the sun as humans stood up straight. But unfortunately, thinning hair has become common, especially in males, due to illness, problematic lifestyles and bad genes.
Because hair loss is an embarrassment to the sufferer it is hidden away where possible. It is rarely a topic for conversation, and men go to extreme lengths to mask which in many cases is just inevitable. The internet has become a hot spring of magical, wonderful, useless or downright dangerous concepts of how to fool your friends that you have no problem with your tresses.
It may sound a little trivial to be so vain, but hair loss can have a major effect on how some individuals cope in life. For instance, it is, unfairly, a symbol of aging and a symbol of inadequacy. Like the onset of hair loss itself, it has a negative effect on a person’s psychology. It can lead to lack of confidence and a fall in self-esteem. This can have a major effect on how a person interacts with friends, colleagues and activities in their work and social life.
So, is there a solution out there?
Well, the simple answer is stop pretending it is not happening and do something about it. The likelihood is, it is not going to go away. With a little bit of thought and a small financial outlay you can style your hair to look your age, vital and fashionable.
And no, we are not talking about hats and wigs here. Hair transplants can be fantastic when they work but the big problem is it can turn out very expensive if it does not work. Stay away from internet quick fixes and visit your doctor to get an idea of the root of the problem. It maybe something that can be helped with medication, a change of lifestyle or a little more care for your hair.
But in most cases, you have what you have got and you can either carry on stressing out about getting caught out, wearing rose tinted glasses and trying to get caught in the right light, or you can take a leap of faith.
