Our hair is so much a part of our identity. We think of it as our crown and glory, and it can be very difficult to notice significant hair loss or thinning. Women often experience hair loss because of alopecia areata, lupus, or stress. Or sometimes women start to lose their hair because of an unknown cause. No matter what the cause, seeking therapy for hair loss could help you deal with the feelings of insecurity, low self-esteem, and stress.
Some women may feel guilty about their feelings associated with losing their hair, but they shouldn’t be ashamed of it. You have the right to feel bad about what’s happening to you. You have permission to mourn the loss of your hair. A lot of women suffer from hair loss but suffer in silence. Changes to your appearance are difficult to deal with, and you shouldn’t hide from the problem. Not addressing what’s happening to you does not make the situation go away and will not improve your self-confidence.
