It’s an obvious statement that hair loss is a person’s worst nightmare. It can often lead to some mild or severe depression dependent on the person and their emotional history. But what exactly causes the depression? Hair loss in general or the many attempts to treat this common problem? Either way most people are generally concerned about the loss of their hair.
Everyone generally has a different story in which relates to hair loss. Most of the men who have this problem tend to fall into some small categories. One is that they would like to have a full head of hair back but it wouldn’t change them or they are somewhat desperate and have tried many other “solutions” in hopes of finding a remedy to this ever-growing problem. Men who face this problem can struggle between convincing themselves they don’t mind the hair loss and accept it while others tend to go to the extremes of being in denial and doing everything possible to help prevent the hair loss situation as much as possible.
Why is hair loss a big deal for some people?
There is no definitive answer to that just the simple fact that some people are more likely to take it worse than others. All of it can fall on their confidence level. Hair loss is a reason people can have anxiety and stress. This can lead to many new things that arise into the diagnosis of depression or anything similar to that for the person with the hair problem.
What’s the worst thing that can happen?
If you still have anxiety, that will need to be avoided or it could lead to depression. Along with the anxiety and depression there is an actual condition called “Body Dysmorphic Disorder”. This is a condition is psychological and can prevent someone from happiness with their overall appearance. This disorder usually continues long after the cause if the problem is eliminated, for example a man who had a hair transplant will still remain unhappy with his hair even after the surgery he thought would make him satisfied and happy.
What can you do to treat it?
