Fear of Dating When Experiencing Hair Loss

Getting out and meeting new people is fun, but dating can also be a bit nerve-wracking. You want everything to be perfect, from choosing the best restaurant and picking out just the right outfit. Whether you're re-entering the dating scene after a break-up or still searching for that special someone, it's normal to have butterflies in your stomach.

We've all heard the saying, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." Perhaps there is no situation truer for that than a first date. We understand that your confidence can take a hit when you're experiencing hair loss. There are solutions available today to help you regain your confidence and get back in the dating game.

Causes of Hair Loss

There are several reasons why men and women experience hair loss. Hair loss in men is often genetic. Hair loss in women can also be genetic, although this is less common. For both men and women, medications, medical treatments, and anxiety disorders are a few of the reasons for experiencing hair loss.

You may think that your thinning hair makes you look older than you really are. Or you may be worried that your date will make assumptions about your health or lifestyle based on your thinning hair. On a first date, most people do not feel comfortable talking about their health or other personal issues. The two of you are just getting to know each other and need to build up trust.

It doesn't have to be this way. You should go into a first date having confidence, poise, and of course, being able to relax and have fun!

Living with Hair Loss

Hair loss can affect how you style your hair. You can no longer wear it the way you used to, or you're struggling to find a style that you think is flattering. Maybe you've been putting off going to the salon or barber because you're not sure what to do anymore. You want to join an online dating site, but you can't find a recent photo that you're happy with.

Some men may feel that losing their hair is inevitable and something they simply have to live with. They watched their own fathers and uncles experience hair loss. But this doesn't have to be the case.

Hair loss solutions have come a long way in recent years. At New Look Institute, our hair restoration systems for men include Cesare Ragazzi, Custom Design Hair, and Virtual Reality. For women, we offer Cesare Ragazzi, Reallusions, Virtuesse, extensions and toppers. For women who have experienced sudden hair loss due to chemotherapy, radiation, or other reasons, wigs can be an elegant option.
