The survey confirms what hair loss sufferers already understand about the nature of hair loss. Namely that it is all consuming; that 90% of those who suffer from a chronic hair loss condition report that they think about their hair loss 'all the time'.
Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 11, 2011
Results of a survey conducted by HairLoss.com, the world’s most comprehensive website providing unbiased consumer information and free hair loss provider referrals, show that losing one’s hair can be an “all consuming” experience that negatively affects many aspects of normal life.
According to a spokesman, the survey queried its visitors about their hair loss conditions and how those conditions affected their day-to-day lives. “Not so surprisingly, we find that over ninety percent of respondents who took our survey report that their hair loss makes them feel depressed,” said Michael Garcia, Spokesman for HairLoss.com. “The same amount related that their self-esteem and self-confidence had been affected negatively by their hair loss condition.”
Over four thousand visitors to HairLoss.com have participated in the survey over the last year. Those who complete the survey, which also queries for age, gender and the type of hair loss condition suffered, receive HairLoss.com’s free eBook publication The Complete Guide to Solving Hair Loss. The eBook, written and published by HairLoss.com, reviews all known hair loss conditions for both men and women and details medical and cosmetic hair loss treatments for each.
“Medical treatments” refer to such procedures as laser hair therapy, hair transplant surgery or hair regrowth therapy using medications such as Propecia and Rogaine. “Cosmetic treatments” refer to procedures such as nonsurgical hair replacement, hair systems, wigs and hair extensions.
“The survey confirms what so many hair loss sufferers already understand about the nature of hair loss,” said Garcia. “Namely that it is all consuming; that more than 90% of those who suffer from a chronic hair loss condition such as male pattern baldness or a receding hairline, not to mention alopecia areata, report that they think about their hair loss situation ‘all the time’ as opposed to ‘sometimes’ or ‘not much’.”
Respondents were also asked which areas of their lives they felt hair loss adversely impacts them, with more than 90% responding that hair loss affects social life and more than 80% responding that work life and dating is affected. Somewhat less than 80% of respondents answered that their home lives and intimacy were affected for the worst.
The survey, while not scientific, was developed, according to Spokesman Garcia, “to better understand the feelings of those who come to our website seeking treatment. “Obviously we’re only able to gauge the opinions of those who visit HairLoss.com and take the survey. A great many individuals aren’t affected negatively by their hair loss. But for those who are affected, we want to make certain that HairLoss.com remains the leader not only in providing the best individualized hair loss treatments, but to do so with understanding, warmth and compassion.”

“The good news is that we take the suffering out of being a hair loss sufferer,” concluded Garcia. “There is hope – and a solution – for everyone.”
