Why Are More Women Choosing To Go Bald?
We’re not about stereotyping here at HEED, however when someone mentions the word ‘bald’, most people would assume it’s a male they’re talking about.
And the word ‘bald’ For some very odd reason sometimes has negative connotations.
But now, people are embracing the bald, and more and more people are choosing to shave.
And whilst many men are shaving their heads and are proud to be bald, now many women are shaving their heads too!
It can be a liberating experience for someone to shave their head, and there are many reasons as to why more and more women are shaving their heads! (here’s just a few!)
It’s easy to look after.
Hair is quite high maintenance, it requires washing, drying, styling, colouring, brushing. And many women who have chosen to shave their head have loved the fact that it’s so easy to get ready. It saves so much time when getting ready if all you have to do is apply some product to your head.
Being inspired by popular culture.
There are many female characters in popular culture who have inspired women to shave their heads, including Charlize Theron as Furiosa in Mad Max, Fury Road, Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in Alien 3, Millie Bobbie Brown as Eleven from Stranger Things and Sade with her sophisticated smooth soul funk jazz and Afro-Cuban rhythms.
To raise money for charity.
There are many ways to raise money for charity, but a common way to raise money for especially cancer charities is to shave your head! To raise awareness of the effects of chemo drugs, (which a common effect is hair loss) many are getting sponsored to have their head shaved.
In a previous blog, we spoke to Jesse Stott, who did just that! Read it here
To be super stylish.
Bald is beautiful, we believe it, and so do others. Some women shave their heads for aesthetics and fashion reasons! Simple as.
To take control of hair loss.
There are many reasons why someone’s hair might become thing, or fall out. Some women decide to take control of the hair loss, and decide to shave before their hair fully falls out. It could be stress, or alopecia, or the effects of chemo drugs, but for whatever the reason, women are choosing to shave it all off.
Once you’re bald, you need to take care of the skin.
Just like you take care of the skin on your face, the skin on the scalp needs tending to.
