From reddit, a guy who had a life-changing hair transplant (going from NW5 to NW2) tells his story. And we get that extremely common (and believed by many) cope: it's not the extra hair that makes you more attractive, it's the fact that the extra hair makes you feel more confident and that's why people respond better to you. Jesus, telling the guy that what he experiences and thinks is not truly what he experiences and thinks. And denying the obvious. Of course it's the hair, what does confidence look like anyway? As @hellouser used to say, have you ever even heard a girl talk about a guy and say: "OMG that guy is so confident!". It's not the confidence, it's the hair.
