Y   ou can probably think of a dozen or more words and phrases that describe someone’s hair; shiny, beautiful, luxurious, silky, a lion’s mane, hair like Elvis, hair like Farrah Fawcett, and the list continues on. And you probably heard of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and knowing the story, Goldilocks has a clear association with being sweet, pure, and innocent. Even the phrase that “blondes have more fun” suggests a personality trait associated with that specific hair color.

Phrases and images can be found in theater, television, literature, and movies that suggest the power and allure of hair. And through the years, hair has been a symbol of social status, sex appeal, attractiveness, self-expression, and physical superiority.

With these images that are held high in society, it’s not surprising that the psychological effects of hair loss include fear, loss of self-worth, and loss of self-esteem. A “bad hair day” can ruin your week; a “no hair day” can ruin your life.
