I feel very depressed about my hair loss- is this normal?

You are not alone, as hair loss can indeed effect many aspects of one’s life including confidence, outgoingness, cheerfulness, and self-esteem. Such a simple thing such as hair has an amazing effect on some people’s lives. Because hair “frames” a person’s face, it adds texture, softness, balance, and less surface area- allowing features to better blend in with another. This overall effect is to usually make a person much younger, rough, and softer looking- more appealing visually. But the effect is very complicated, to the point that science is still trying to discover its full effect.
