Hair LossNew Year is a time for new beginnings and a fresh approach to life. For someone dealing with the emotional effects of hair loss, this time of year represents a great opportunity to become proactive about the impact this distressing condition can have.

For some people, premature hair loss is about lost youth and getting older. These people often believe that they’ll be less attractive and lack vitality. Of course, this is never true — but the feelings are.

Dissatisfaction with regard to body image is another relatively common issue experienced by people with hair loss. They may look in the mirror and struggle to recognize the person looking back. Or the issue may be related to an inability to style their hair.

If you’re struggling with feelings of embarrassment, low self-esteem and self-consciousness as a result of your hair loss, 2018 is the year to take control. By making these three New Year’s resolutions, you can take the first steps to becoming more confident in your appearance.

  1. I Will Be Proud of the Way I Look

There’s nothing wrong with aging — it’s part of life. While you might think less of yourself because of the hair loss you’re experiencing, the most important people in your life don’t. Make 2018 the year you finally tell yourself: “I’m proud of the way I look.”

Don’t be afraid to look at photos of yourself or stare into a mirror; in fact, embrace these issues fully. Get used to the way you look, and focus on the positives. Once you have learned to live with your hair loss, you can approach remedies without feeling that your whole life depends on them working.

  1. I Will Keep an Open Mind About My Hair Loss Options

There are several possibilities when it comes to dealing with hair loss, including wigs, a new hairstyle and hair replacement systems. Your next New Year’s resolution should be to keep an open mind about which of these options will work for you. Give yourself time to research the issue, and speak with friends and family about it.

  1. I Will Book an Appointment with a Hair Replacement Specialist
