Many folks don’t think losing their hair is ever enjoyable. And let’s face it – for many people, even talking about it has become taboo. While hair loss can be related to health issues, genes or the aging process, and while it can be an uncomfortable topic for many, it also presents a perfect opportunity to reinvent one’s self.
Here are some of the best things about hair loss, and the reasons why it should never be considered a taboo topic.
People can modify how old they lookChanging hair color with hair replacements or wigs can drastically modify how old or young someone can look. Instead of worrying about hair turning grey or white, someone experiencing hair loss has the freedom to experiment with age-reducing looks when choosing a wig or hair replacement solution.
Those with hair loss can go for more daring stylesSome people always wanted the bald or skinhead look – here’s a great excuse to go for it! When a person’s hair starts thinning or falling out, it is easy to lose self-esteem. Instead, he or she should think of this as a license to experiment—and have a good excuse—for all those fun things one can do with hair.
They can focus on healthier habits“Popping vitamins ensures scalp health, allowing [hair] to grow in faster, thicker, and healthier,” says Hollywood hair stylist Jen Atkin.
There’s nothing like losing hair to make people appreciate the good health they do have. Being more mindful about food and drink choices, hair care and self-care is one good thing that can happen when people experience hair loss. Focusing on using the best hair products, vitamin intake and medical treatments can all contribute to an overall healthier self.
Some folks can finally get their dream hairMany people suffer from trichotillomania or alopecia, and they can become easily depressed with the consequences. However, others use the opportunity to finally own the hair piece they’ve wanted all their life, which can be very rewarding.
They can give their real hair a breakSome women, and even some men, experience hair loss due to wreckage from over-styling. “The problem occurs when you live with one particular look day by day and year after year,” says one stylist. Wearing wigs actually gives one’s real hair a chance to take a break from products and cosmetics, and just go “on holiday” for a while. The fake hair gets to be the star of the show, and the wearer can still have fun!
People learn to love their real selvesWhen people undergo any kind of physical transformation, they also find out who really loves them, just as they are. This discovery can be truly liberating.
On the topic of beauty, actress Jada Pinkett Smith has this to say:
“Here’s the thing, men have to also mature in how they see women, too. Because they need to understand that it’s not just about how we look, it’s about who we are. And I am going to tell you like this, ‘If you can’t love me with short hair, and you’re telling me I got to have long hair to be loved, guess what, I ain’t the one for you.’“
Nowadays, people can be more open about hair loss, and celebrities even use social media to be honest about their struggles. Take a cue from superstars like Lady Gaga, and others who have fun with everything from shape to length, color and style when considering wigs and hair replacements.
