Why is Hair Loss Still Taboo Among Men?

From a statistics perspective, most men will experience hair loss at some point in their life. So why is hair loss among blokes still a touchy topic? Why are so many men self-conscious when it comes to thinning hair and shiny heads?

It makes sense, that If hair loss is something experienced by so many, that we shouldn’t be ashamed to seek treatment. After all, there are so many options out there to combat hair loss.

Did you know that 50% of men will experience significant hair loss by the age of 50?

This vulnerability spans generations. Most women are used to the constant scrutiny about aging, and while men do not face most of the pressure women do to stay youthful, the idea of balding is perhaps the most notable aging factor among men.

Going bald can be a serious psychological hurdle for a lot of men, especially younger men. With the obvious connection between hair loss and age, it’s little wonder many men will begin showing signs of depression. Unfortunately, physical appearance matters in society, and what we look like on the outside determines things like:

  • The shape of our career
  • The people we associate with
  • Our life partners
  • General social status

Whilst there is no simple cure to hair loss, there are options for the prevention and treatment of the common condition. A lot of men will shave their head completely to disguise balding and put on a brave face and sport a cap a little more often than they used to.

There’s no doubt that hair loss is a big blow to your self-esteem, confidence, and strength. But you shouldn’t let it stop you from living a full life and achieving your goals.
