How Does Hair Loss in Men Affect Their Self Esteem and What You Can Do To Look and Feel Better

Hair Loss experienced by men can put a damper on self-esteem and confidence. Fortunately, a combination of approaches and hair loss treatments can help you treat and manage male pattern hair loss.


Why do so many Men lose their hair?

There are many reasons for hair loss in men. Alopecia can occur due to hormonal problems, stress, follicle damage, autoimmune conditions or disorders, or as a result of chemotherapy.

The most common cause of male hair loss is androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness. This is when the scalp becomes more sensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which shortens the length of the hair growth cycle and reduces hair follicle output or growth. This results in fewer hairs growing over time in certain areas like on the top of the head and over the temples. The hairs that do grow are thinner, weaker and more likely to break.

This condition runs in families (genetics) and is more likely to happen as you get older.


How hair loss effects your self-esteem

Hair loss signifies ageing and frailty, which is why men start losing confidence, start feeling more stressed, anxious and depressed as their hair starts falling out.

Multiple studies have linked male pattern hair loss to lowered self-esteem and diminished confidence. A recent study found that androgenic alopecia lowered the quality of life of many men, affecting areas of self-perception and interpersonal relationships. Recent research identified low self-esteem in many patients with androgenic alopecia and found that confidence can improve after using effective hair growth treatments.

In the world that we live in hair loss in men can affect their self-esteem to the extent that a man believes his appearance is an important part of what makes him a worthy or valued person. In our current society, men are more invested in their appearance than ever before and want identify as a younger-looking man, hair loss can significantly impact a man’s self-esteem.
