You may not realize how important your hair is to you until you have a bad hair day or it begins to fall out. We human beings have always had an interesting relationship with our hair from biological, historical and aesthetic points of view. A full head of hair has symbolized health, wealth and status. At some points of history, hair has even symbolized where an individual stands on socio-political platforms.
Each year, billions of dollars are spent on hair care. Hair is a particularly important part of a person’s being. Until something happens to change it, people who have a full head of hair often take it for granted. When illness, medication, nature or a medical condition causes hair loss, a person’s self-esteem and self-confidence can take a hit.
Hair Loss, Not Just for Old Men
With aging, men and women alike can expect to start losing hair. But it does not only happen with age. In fact, male pattern baldness begins for some men before they reach their 21st birthday. As many as 25% of men with this condition will see early signs of hair loss well before reaching middle age.
About 85% of men over 50 will experience significant hair loss. Women also experience more hair loss with aging. In fact, by the age of 50, half of them will have some measure of pattern hair loss. Even children are not immune. Pediatricians attribute about 3% of visits to parents concerned about their child’s thinning hair or bald spots.
All Is Not Lost
Many women feel their hair is their crowning glory. For men, hair bespeaks of youth, vigor and vitality. For both men and women, seeking treatment for hair loss can be a way to restore your hair and confidence.
