Hair loss makes many people feel extremely self-conscious. However, given the amount of people with this issue according to hair loss statistics in the US alone, it shouldn’t be something to be embarrassed about.
In fact, the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery did a study on hair loss in the US and found that nearly 56 million US citizens suffer from hair loss. That’s about 16 percent of the population, which is a large amount to be affected by any issue. For comparison, diabetes, a widely recognized issue in our country, affects only 9.5 percent of the population according to statistics provided by the CDC.
More hair loss statistics
The same study by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery does show that more men than women suffer hair loss, but not by much. A reported 35 million men suffer hair loss, compared 21 million women. Many people tend to think of hair loss as primarily an issue for men, but this study shows that is not the case.
In fact, 80 percent of women will have noticeable hair loss by the age of 60. However, despite how common hair loss is for both genders, 60 percent of people in the same survey said they would rather have more hair than money or friends. Hair loss sufferers should not have to have this attitude towards hair loss, and should know that no matter what is causing it, they are not being judged.
This is part of the beauty of wigs. They help empower people suffering hair loss and help them to learn to love their bodies, regardless of their degree of hair loss. It’s important to feel good about yourself and have a positive view, especially for hair loss caused by stress, and wigs help people do just that.
