Hair is almost like a social status. It means so much to people, both men and women, and also children. It is society’sexpectation that you will have a head of hair! It is a statement about yourself, how you have your hair. Some people spend about 300$ in salons and onproducts etc. It makes the individual feel good, more confident. Then there is the new ‘WAG’ culture at the moment, women showing off their money, pamperingthemselves. Other people dye their hair crazy colors; after all it shows you identity. We all recognize punk and emo hairstyles after all.
When peoplelose their hair, they lose their identity. People stare at bald women. We shouldn’t but we do. Balding men are more acceptable by society, but it’s stilla loss to that man. A sign that they are getting old-limiting future hairstyles too. After all, there are the metrosexuals!
We all remember BritneySpears shocking the world by shaving her hair off. There have been many people who have shaved their hair as a statement, showing they are not well. A‘breakdown’ clinically known as depression or some form of mental illness.
To be bald women does make a statement of illness. After all, we know when wesee cancer patients; there are often the terrible results of chemotherapy causing hair loss. Some say it is the most distressing part of the treatment,loosing all hair. Then there are people with alopecia, where in some cases people loose all body hair and it doesn’t grow back. It’s hugely distressing.
