My hair is a big part of my image. From a young age I have experimented with my hair, dying it every colour under the sun and growing it long, cutting it short then growing it long again on repeat.
I recently saw a documentary about hair loss and it made me really think about how I would cope without my hair and I know that I would really struggle. My pink hair is a massive part of my identity and I know for sure that if I were to lose it, I would feel incredibly self conscious and self aware. My hair gives me something to hide behind on the early morning school runs. I have lots of fun putting it up in mad styles and am always looking for new colours to try.
Without it I think that I would feel exposed but it isn’t something I need to worry about on a daily basis. On the other hand, I know that my husband is equally conscious of losing his hair as he gets older, as women, we are less likely to experience hair loss but for many men it is an inevitability and one that makes them feel self conscious as well. It can also really damage self esteem and confidence.
There are extreme options like hair transplants but there is tremendous cost involved in that and the procedure looks quite drastic and invasive. There are other options though, and the Advanced Tricho Pigmentation treatment offered by the Harley Street Hair Clinic seems to be the one that I think he would go for the most, it’s pretty much having hair ‘tattooed’ back on.
As a man who isn’t bothered by looks so much, this is the one area that I can see him struggling with in future and I’m pleased there will be options for him.
