Hair Loss


Hair loss in women can be absolutely devastating for the individual’s self-image and emotional well-being. Unfortunately, hair loss conditions in women are not addressed as they should. It is considered far more acceptable for men to go through the same hair loss process than it is for the female population.      


​Even more unfortunate, the medical community also treats the issue of women's hair loss as if it were nonexistent. Since hair loss doesn't appear to be life-threatening, most physicians pay little attention to women's complaints about hair loss, making them feel even more discouraged.


A hair loss condition not only effects an individual’s physical appearance, but what many people, and physicians, don’t realize is that it can also cause psychological damage. Feeling unattractive because of hair loss can be just as devastating as any serious disease and can take an emotional toll that may eventually affect the individual’s physical health.


​The American Hair Loss Association recognizes that hair loss in women is a serious, life-altering condition that can no longer be ignored by the medical community and society as a whole.

For women with a hair loss condition, it can take a devastating toll on their self-esteem, self-worth, and so much more. At Evolve Hair Solutions, we strive to provide hair that will help women gain the confidence they deserve. However, if left untreated, hair loss can lead to feelings of:


  • The end of youth — concerns about getting older

    • Loss of hair leads to loss of youth, which leads to inevitable aging

  • Inability to style hair

    • Dissatisfaction with appearance and body image

  • Low self-esteem

    • Physical beauty is one of the most vulnerable cornerstones of self-esteem. Self-esteem levels and other measures of self-worth drop significantly when hair loss occurs.

  • Loss of personal attractiveness and fear of not looking attractive to others

    • For balding women, it is especially hard to live in a society that places great value on youthful appearance and attractiveness. Because women are famous for spending a lot of time and money grooming, dying, curling, drying, and styling their hair to make it look its best, when they begin to lose their hair, it is extremely traumatic. This cosmetic setback is quite intense when a woman is used to having hair and then suddenly finds herself losing it. Women of all ages can have a lot of trouble dealing with the reality of hair loss.

  • Feelings of depression and introversion

    • Some women make assumptions that they are losing control of their life when they start losing their hair.

  • Work-related problems

    • Hair loss may affect someone who is in front of the camera or who needs to be in the public eye professionally.

  • Negative effects on social life

    • Hair plays an important role in our social lives. Upon meeting someone, one of the first things you notice is their hair. Before a social engagement, it is very important for us to look good, and a great hair style is what completes our appearance. Those affected by a hair loss condition quickly become aware of how important hair is in their social lives.
