Would you trade a year off your life for a head full of hair?
Women may say yes to it, but in a recent survey of Emirati men, more than half also responded positively.
According to Rt.com, a recent hair loss incidence study conducted in the United Arab Emirates by YouGov on behalf of Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo has discovered that 67% of men in the UAE suffered from hair loss.
Emirates 24/7 News reported that 1,100 participants with over 200 nationalities took part in the survey.
The survey concluded that in the worst cases, some men were prepared to lose even up to a decade of their live than be exposed to baldness.
“Hair loss can alter the way a man looks and makes him look older too. Men in UAE put strong emphasis on their physical appearance, and hair loss therefore causes great problems for most men in UAE,” said Dubai-based Dr Hanieh Erdmann, a dermatologist and hair restoration surgeon.
The survey revealed that almost every second man under the age of 30 suffered from hair loss in various proportions and some 55% said the physical and psychological effect of hair loss is so strong that they would rather live for less time but with a head full of hair.
Forty-two per cent of respondents said they would be willing to lose a year of their lives, while 5% were willing to give up half a decade or more to see some hair grow.
Meanwhile, 13% of 590 respondents said they were willing to shorten their lives by three years.Read more at:http://www.rt.com/news/315992-uae-baldness-trade-life/
