Understanding the Emotional Impact of Hair Loss

hair health ,it's not just hair
5+ min read

September marks Alopecia Awareness Month, shedding light on the often-taboo topic of women's hair loss. At Monpure London, we understand that It's Not Just Hair – hair is an integral part of identity, confidence, self-esteem and emotional wellbeing. Our mission is to be at the forefront of scientific research and innovation, offering solutions that restore both hair and confidence throughout the key milestones in life that affect hair and scalp health.

Hair Loss: It's Not Just Hair

Hair isn't just a superficial aspect of our appearance; it's a deeply ingrained part of our identity. When we meet someone new, their hair is often one of the first things we notice. Similarly, before a significant event, we take time to ensure our hair looks its best. This emotional connection to our hair is not frivolous; it's a reflection of how intertwined our sense of self is with our physical appearance.

The emotional toll of hair loss cannot be overstated. For many, it's more than a cosmetic concern; it's a journey that affects mental health, self-esteem, and emotional well-being. According to MONPURE’s research, a staggering 88% of women experiencing hair loss are grappling with its negative impact on their daily lives. This negative influence often manifests as a knock to self-esteem, with 75% reporting a decline in their self-confidence due to hair problems.

Hair holds immense importance as a reflection of identity. A striking 87% of individuals recognise the significance of their hair in defining who they are. Throughout history, hair has been a way for women to communicate their cultural belonging and personal expression. Today, it continues to play a pivotal role in conveying messages about individuality and belonging.

Hair Loss: Breaking the Silence

Despite the widespread emotional impact of hair loss, only 37% of those affected openly discuss it with family and friends. This discrepancy may be attributed to the pervasive social stigma attached to female hair loss – a perception held by 81% of women. The silence surrounding this topic emphasises the need for open conversations, empathy, and support.

At MONPURE, we're committed to addressing the emotional and psychological aspects of hair loss, as well as developing cutting-edge restoration treatments and formulas. Our innovative solutions are rooted in the science of hair growth cycles, the scalp microbiome and the relationship between hormonal changes and the health of our hair follicles. MONPURE’s innovative solutions work to restore hair and confidence by harnessing the natural hair growth cycle, prolonging the growth phase and delaying the shedding phase.

MONPURE is the world’s first haircare brand to speak openly about female hair loss. Our 2021 campaign #ItsNotJustHair featured five incredible women that shared their hair loss stories, creating a safe and open community. We hope to be a force for change and encourage others to talk about female hair loss more openly – not feel the need to cover up. Because none of us should have to go through female hair loss alone.
