It's Time to Rediscover Confidence

The Link Between Income Level and Hair Loss

Living in poverty or on a low income has far-reaching consequences in your daily life. It affects the neighborhood you live in, your access to insurance and health care, which school district your kids will enroll in, and even if you have easy access to a grocery store. Because of these reasons and more, people with a lower income often find that they experience hair loss more commonly and earlier than people who have a substantial income.


Healthy hair growth requires a healthy diet. This includes getting plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and diversifying your intake of whole grains and proteins to get enough vitamins and minerals for healthy cell production. But people who earn less income often don’t have easy access to grocery stores, instead, they live in “food deserts.” Plus, people living in poverty or low-income areas are more susceptible to obesity, which can cause a hormone imbalance that affects hair growth.


A major factor of hair loss is stress, which is largely prevalent in populations that do not make sufficient income. According to the Mayo Clinic, stress can lead to three different types of hair loss:

  • Telogen effluvium – hair follicles go into a dormant phase
  • Trichotillomania – sudden urge to pull at your own hair
  • Alopecia areata – the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles

An analysis of Gallup poll data showed that 45% of Americans who make less than $2,000 per month felt stressed that day, compared to about 37% of people who made more than $7,500 per month.
