First, face facts.
We have not found a cure for hair loss. That's the first thing you need to accept. It's not for lack of trying, as we invest $2 Billion each year searching for a cure. For all practical purposes, betting on a definitive cure for baldness is a sure way to prolong your frustration. Still, relatively speaking, the present day is the absolute best-case scenario that has ever existed for men, women, and even children losing their hair.
Here's the good news.
We don't have a cure. Fortunately, we have – literally – everything but. If you want help adding hair, there are endless options. If you need help coping with the emotional and psychological aspects of hair loss, diverse resources abound. If you're worried about making the wrong decision, the first step is to own that fear. It's totally valid, and it's super important to make the decision that's right for you, no matter what that looks like.
Visibility & Community
Many people, both men and women, respond to hair loss by hiding it. It's natural, but that's how so many people wind up suffering in silence. Isolation and lack of communication make people feel completely alone. It doesn't have to be that way. If you've been agonizing alone, feeling like there's no one to talk to, it's time for you to get connected.
If you don't want to come out about your hair loss, you don't have to. Hundreds of men and women are coming forth and sharing their hair loss experiences with the world. Hair loss communities are popping up every day, in person and online. However you prefer to interact about your hair loss, even if it's anonymously, you can find a network of people who share their experiences in a way that works for you.
Hair loss is common, but it's also incredibly unique. The specific characteristics of your hair and hair loss play a huge role in what treatment options will actually work for you. For that reason, you need a custom, personalized solution. If you just want to add hair, you can opt for a club that simply offers one branded line with their own version of each popular hair addition method. But if you're feeling more effects than just missing hair, a consultative studio will be the way to go.
