Hair Loss and Self Esteem

Hair Loss and Self Esteem

In past articles we have have discussed the fact that losing your hair can cause depression and anxiety and sadly, some of the medications used to treat these conditions can contribute to hair loss. It puts you between a rock and a hard place and you are left with a feeling of low self esteem.

Self esteem gives us confidence and allows us to walk tall among our fellow human beings. It can be the difference between getting a promotion, a job or meeting the love of your life. It can also be a defining characteristic of the person that you are and see yourself to be.

Low self esteem can erase your ability to accomplish many of the things in life that we desire and it can absolutely ruin a life. Some people acquire low self esteem via their childhood and how they were raised. Were they praised and made to feel special or just shunted aside as worthless? Some people (most people) are not born with movie star looks and see themselves as ugly ducklings and that contributes to low self esteem. Some people suffer from illnesses that cause them to have low self esteem through the loss of hope and body changes.

Hair Loss and Self EsteemMany people develop low self esteem where it once was much higher when they lose their hair for one reason or another. A woman with once beautiful, shiny hair can completely go off the rails if she loses her hair or finds that it is thinning and hard to style or manage.
