Millions of people are affected by hair loss, both men and women. People may experience hair loss genetically or due to medical treatments like chemotherapy or radiation or a medical condition like alopecia.
Regardless of the cause, hair loss can be a traumatic experience. People who experience hair loss may feel vulnerable, exposed, or self-conscious. Friends and family members frequently offer well-meaning suggestions or comments, but sometimes these words cause more harm than they help.
Here are a few things NOT to say to someone experiencing hair loss!
At least you save a lot of time getting ready in the morning.
Yes, not needing to wash and style hair each morning may save time, but most people experiencing hair loss would gladly return to spending time on their hair. After all, it’s not like they chose to lose their hair as a convenience.
You should try this product!
In all probability, the person experiencing hair loss has already tried the product you are recommending or has at least researched it and decided against trying it. People experiencing hair loss frequently explore multiple options.
Relax. Your hair will grow back.
This amateur diagnosis can be incredibly frustrating to those experiencing hair loss. They have probably already consulted doctors and professionals about the likelihood of their hair loss being temporary (as well as treatment options). The person experiencing hair loss may also not want to discuss their hair loss and any underlying medical conditions that may contribute to it.
