While it may seem frivolous to book a hair treatment as a pick-me-up on a day that you’re feeling down or overwhelmed, the link between hair and mental wellness is actually extremely well documented. At Suki Hair we believe in both empowerment and pampering and we want you to have the best possible experience because not only is stress a leading cause in many hair issues (such as hair loss) but hair samples have been identified as a marker for diagnosing stress and depression.
More than this, the simple act of going to the salon has several benefits such as building relationships with your stylist, looking after the physical health of your hair, and for some the most vital role it plays is that it serves the purpose of just getting you out of the house.
Self-Care And Hair Care Create Immediate And Lasting Mental Wellness
There is nothing that alleviates the effects of stress like a boost of endorphins or dopamine. Having a good treatment done for your hair gives you several benefits to look forward to:
- Stronger and healthier hair
- Better looking hair gives you a great confidence boost
- The act of pampering can reduce stress and give you a mood boost
- Less stress means that you have more mental resources to tackle life
Over the course of time, maintaining good hair health supports good mental health which is beneficial to your longevity and overall health too! Take care of yourself – start with something as simple as a hair appointment.
Social Connection Is A Vital Part Of Good Mental Health
When you look a little deeper into depression and poor mental health, loneliness has been earmarked as a massive contributor. When you build a lasting relationship with your hairdresser, who often becomes more confidant and therapist than mere stylist, you are essentially tackling poor mental health head on. Connecting with others is a vital part of reducing stress and depression no matter what you talk about!
