Are the Millennials Breaking the Hair Loss Stigma?

hair loss

hair lossIt’s a statistical fact that most men and women will experience some degree of hair loss at some point in their life, so why does it remain a taboo topic for so many? Researchers know that two-thirds of all men will experience hair loss by the time they are 35, while 40% of women could experience some sort of hair loss by the time they reach forty. Regardless of these facts, many still hesitate to confess that they’re struggling with hair loss or admit they need hair restoration treatment.

Although it’s been the stereotype for older generations to accept the comb-over, younger generations are more willing to be open about hair loss and hair restoration solutions. Some of their openness is because of social media and blogging. For some reason, most people are not afraid to expose the much less-than-flattering struggles in their lives on social media platforms. They are eager to share hair loss treatments or results they’ve experienced.

Millennials seem to be less worried about male hair loss. They grew up watching bald action stars, like Bruce Willis and Jason Statham, and have seen sports figures, such as Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, lead their teams to victory. They feel that the concept of a man with a full head of hair is better looking or more successful is an outdated way of thinking.

Women suffering from hair loss face different obstacles than men. The word beautiful has taken on new meaning over the years, but the stigma of losing their hair is still there. With female celebrities using hair extensions and wigs more often has become easier for women to come forward and seek out solutions to thinning hair or hair loss.

Hair restoration options are more powerful than they’ve been in the past. Between hair restoration products, laser treatments and hair transplants, men and women have multiple proven options and solutions to choose from. As hair loss specialists are able to zero in on and recognize the underlying reasons for hair loss, they are able to offer specific products to slow down or prevent hair loss. When younger people discover the medical reason for their hair loss it becomes less of a shameful secret and more of an issue that can be resolved.
