Taroudant – A recent Hair Loss Incidence Study conducted by YouGov in the United Arab Emirates found that over half of Emirati men who suffer from hair loss would rather trade a year of their lives to regain their hair.
The study, which was conducted in the United Arab Emirates on behalf of Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo, discovered that 67 percent of men and women in UAE suffer from hair loss.
Most of the polled population express willingness to trade some years of their life for regaining their lost hair or prevent baldness.
In response to the question “How much time of your life you would be willing to shorten to regain lost hair or to ensure that you will not go bald?”, most of the poll’s participants claimed that hair loss is an unending problem that they would shorten their lives to avoid.
“13 percent of the 590 male respondents said they were willing to shorten their lives by three years or more, while an additional 42 percent were willing to trade 1 year or less of their lives for a head full of hair,” the study found.
“Hair loss can alter the way a man looks, and makes him look older. Men in the UAE put strong emphasis on their physical appearance, and hair loss therefore causes great problems for most men in UAE,” underlines Dr. Hanieh Erdmann, a German Board Certified Dermatologist and Hair Restoration Surgeon located in Dubai.
The study reveals that hair loss impacts the social lives of men in the UAE, especially if the problem happens at an early age.
“Self-doubt, difficulties in socializing, and embarrassment are just some of the consequences of hair loss”, Erdmann said, adding that the study found “hair loss in men is associated with psychological phobias.”
