Coping and Support

If you are still losing hair, remember:

People with a positive attitude and healthy self-esteem cope better with hair loss (and of course with every other kind of setback).

If you are a man, one option is to just shave off all your hair. Wigs and hairpieces are available for men too, but a shaved head (like Stephen Covey the writer, speaker, and educationist) is currently fashionable and a viable option.

If you are a woman, it is much harder. Shaving is an option if you can carry it off (Demi Moore and Shabana Azmi have sported shaved heads). If your hair is very scanty, you can shave it off and then use a scarf or hat, or use a wig over your existing hair. Think about it this way – you are using a wig (or scarf or hat) because it seems to make others more comfortable. But, hair or no hair, you love yourself and take care of yourself.

Whether it is men or women, those who get their sense of self-worth from things other than their looks, and those who are involved with social work or a profession, cope better with hair loss and baldness than other people.

If you have a good job, a supportive family, and otherwise good health, you are luckier than someone with a head full of hair without these things.
