Eyebrows On Fleek, Twinkling White Teeth, Spot Free Face And A Hairline Which Is Straighter Than A 30 Centimetre Ruler
One of the worst feelings for men and women today is to lose our precious hair. Something which we think defines our beauty and level of attractiveness. Well today, I want to prove you wrong!
Some people are fortunate enough to have the perfect genes which allow them to have thick healthy hair and a streamlined body with well defined features but of course this is not a reality for millions and billions of people around the world.
Everyone has imperfections, including hair loss!
147 million worldwide have or will develop alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. Other forms of alopecia include alopecia universalis which affects 1 in 4000 people based on European Data. This type of hair loss is complete baldness on the scalp and affects mostly women.
I myself have lost some of my hair, at just 19 years old. It can be daunting as you feel less attractive instantly. Since noticing my hair loss, I visited a clinic in London called the Belgravia Centre. There I was diagnosed with the most common form of hairloss called male pattern baldness (MPB). 1 in 7 men in their lifetime will get this form of hair loss but fortunate for me I was chosen young. Great!
Since then I have started hairloss treatment and I am seeing some positive results – however is it really worth it!
Part of me is saying shave it off, then there would be no reason to stress. But the other side of me is saying, will anyone find me attractive anymore? I feel especially in the gay community, looks is everything so being bald I doubt would go down very well.
I admire people who are confident and do not give a F*&$ about their hair loss, something I aspire to be like. Alopecia can affect your mental health so the first thing I would recommend is acceptance.
Accepting that your hair is falling out is so important as fact says stressing over your hair loss will only accelerate the issue. Second of all I would get your hair loss examined by a professional, hair loss clinician or dermatologist. They may advice you to get a blood test to rule out any internal issues such as thyroid or low vitamin levels. Third of all, acceptance again! If you’re going to be bald accept it and rock the look – because having no hair is sexy too…!
People should start to look more into an individuals personality rather than their image and appearance. I understand that when you are dating someone an element of attractiveness does play a role in romance however if it is true love then beauty becomes second nature and personality overrules any body imperfections.
We live in a world sadly where people judge each other around the clock, online, behind our back and to our face. It sucks. Of course it does. How to get around this? You can’t. People will always talk, always bully and always be nasty. What you should remind yourself is that when people like this comment on your body image they themselves are probably suffering with an imperfection and are struggling to come to terms with it.
Never let anyone control your emotions and get you down. Be free and do you! If anyone tries to stop you, smile and walk past in the most diva-rish sassy way, because you are sexy and rule!
Bold is beautiful.
