Do men like to talk about hair loss

It’s unusual or even unknown, to meet a man who welcomes hair thinning or hair loss.

Some men choose baldness or very close-cropped hair as a style statement but in most cases, hair drop is something they view with at best sad resignation or at worst, dread.

So, it should be unsurprising to find that many men don’t like to talk about the subject and often ignore it in the usually forlorn hope that it will simply stop.

Why are men sensitive about the subject?

Some men have no problem at all talking about their advancing baldness or hair loss but many others do.

There are a number of reasons why that reticence exists:

  • feelings of impotence in the sense of “there’s nothing I can do to stop this”;
  • the concern that this is symptomatic of advancing age;
  • a fear that it leads to a loss of personal attractiveness;
  • trying to avoid drawing attention to it may spare them becoming the butt of jokes from other men and women;
  • they want to hide the fact that this is bothering them, preferring instead to laugh it all off in a macho gesture.

In many senses, this syndrome is very close to that associated with men who ignore medical symptoms because they don’t wish to face the fact that they may have a problem. While most men in their 50s and older may be more relaxed and fatalistic about hair drop, we should not underestimate how big a blow this can be for younger men for all the above reasons and others.

Why that is a pity

In general terms, it’s not usually a good idea to suppress your worries and concerns. That is something that applies to almost everything and not just hair drop.

Far more practically though, the core assumption that hair loss and baldness are just ‘things we can’t do anything about’ may well be flawed.  Today there may well be options to reduce or eliminate the problem altogether.

What can be done?

The first thing to do is to consult a hair loss specialist. The reason for that is simple, to conduct a diagnosis.

There are various causes of hair loss and some of them can be fully or partly treated. However, you can’t follow a treatment regime for hair drop until you have identified those causes precisely.

Once you’ve done so, there might be many treatments applicable. Lasers, special preparations, massage and many other hi-tech treatments might all have a role to play in helping to alleviate or eradicate a hair loss problem.

Apart from anything else, such specialists may encourage men to more openly discuss their feelings about hair loss. That isn’t a question of counselling but more one related to helping to decide on the best ways forward.


However much bravado, men might display when confronted with hair drop and baldness, the reality is that many of them will feel negative about the experience and its potential impact on their lives.

This may be in large part avoidable if help is sought from a qualified hair loss consultancy specialist.
