  • What Are the Psychological Effects of Hair Loss?

People who are affected by hair loss feel unhappy when they stand in front of the mirror. One of the most important things for people is their physical appearance, which is also accepted by society. Therefore, people affected by hair loss feel older when they see themselves in the mirror as soon as baldness starts or their hair becomes significantly thinner. This can lead to a loss of self-confidence.

We more often see a loss of self-confidence in our patients due to hair loss that begins in their early twenties. As a result, they become more withdrawn from society and are less able to take a role in social situations. Patients affected by hair loss at a young age are more likely to become introverted and avoid social situations.


Is It Possible to Eliminate the Negative Results of Hair Loss?

Yes, it is possible. Hair transplantation is an operation preferred by people suffering from hair loss in the advanced stages of the disease. After successful hair transplantation, patients see themselves in their real age when they stand in front of the mirror. They become happy, feel good and regain their self-confidence.

People who regain their self-confidence through hair transplantation and get along better with other people also begin to take a more active role in society.

So, a person who has good hair after a successful procedure experiences very positive effects both physically and psychologically and feels much more comfortable in his skin.

Hair Loss in Men

The most common form of hair loss in men is androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness usually begins with a receding hairline and thinning of the crown, eventually leading to complete hair loss on the scalp. This type of hair loss usually begins in the 20s and becomes more pronounced with age.

Causes of hair loss in men may include stress, poor diet, lack of hair care, hormonal changes, scalp diseases or side effects of medications.

Hair Loss in Women

Hair loss occurs differently in women than in men. Hair loss is usually sparse in the upper part of the hair and does not cause baldness.

Androgenetic alopecia may also occur in women due to an excess of androgen hormones. As in men, the prevalence of androgenetic alopecia in women increases with age.

Other causes of hair loss in women may include menopause, pregnancy, and birth control pills. A genetic predisposition can also contribute to hair loss in women.

  • Healthy diet

To prevent hair loss and promote healthy hair growth, it is important to eat a diet that contains beneficial nutrients such as protein, iron, zinc, B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. In addition to a healthy diet, regular eating habits are also important.

  • Reduce stress

Stress is one of the main causes of hair loss. Activities such as yoga, meditation, exercise, sports or massage can reduce stress, which can lead to many diseases and hair loss.

  • Hair care

Regular washing, moisturizing and conditioning of hair is important to prevent hair loss. However, hair should not be washed every day and care should be taken not to wash it with water that is too hot.

When washing, no more than 2 shampoos or soaps should be used, and the hair should be lathered by massaging the scalp.

Treatments such as applying heat to the hair, blow drying, coloring and perming should be avoided as they can cause hair loss.

  • Give up bad habits

Smoking and alcohol consumption are factors that cause hair loss. Therefore, it is crucial for the health of your hair to give up these two bad habits.

  • Sleep habits

Irregular sleep schedules can lead to hair loss, so it is important to pay attention to your sleep schedule in your daily life.

People who cannot prevent hair loss and experience it at an advanced stage should not give up hope and become pessimistic. Thinning or balding hair in both men and women can be corrected by hair transplantation. However, not everyone is suitable for this procedure.
