The Psychological Impact of Women's Hair Loss


February 06, 2018

Hair loss is commonly thought of as a man’s problem, but an estimated 40% of women experience noticeable hair loss before the age of 40. Unfortunately, many of these women suffer in silence.  

In our society, it’s considered far more acceptable for men to lose their hair. If a balding man walks into a room, most people don’t give it a second thought, but when a woman with hair loss does the same, she’ll likely turn heads. Hair loss can be particularly devastating for women because often their identity, femininity and feelings of attractiveness are linked to their hair. 

Research shows that hair loss can be psychologically damaging and cause emotional suffering, leading to social, personal and work-related problems. Psychological disorders are seen more often in people with hair loss than in the general population, suggesting they’re at greater risk of developing depression, phobias or an anxiety disorder. Most of the research that’s been done indicates people with hair loss have diminished self-esteem and a poorer quality of life. 

There are many different causes of hair loss in women, including genetics, age, hormonal changes, diseases and medical conditions, lack of nutrition and poor diet, prescription drugs, and harsh styling practices. In some cases, hair loss is reversible, but in others, the loss can be permanent.
