Until you start losing your hair, you probably don’t appreciate how much it contributes to your sense of self. In today’s ‘selfie society’ we are constantly reminded of our appearance and are bombarded by pictures of young, fit and good looking people. If what you see in the mirror everyday reminds you that you aren’t as young as you used to be, it can be pretty devastating.
The majority of men who experience hair loss suffer from negative psychological effects, such as loss of confidence and self esteem. Many report becoming socially withdrawn because they are embarrassed about their appearance. The good news is that those who sought treatment reported feeling more positive and had increased self-esteem after treatment.
