Chinese people are losing their hair earlier than ever

Chinese people losing their hair earlier than ever before, research shows

Chinese people are losing their hair earlier than ever before, according to research published in the latest edition of China Newsweek magazine.

In a survey of 4,000 students conducted by Tsinghua University in Beijing in October, almost 60 per cent of respondents were found to be suffering from hair loss to some degree.

About 40 per cent of the people who took part said they had noticed their hairline receding, while 25 per cent said they learned about the problem from friends or family.

The survey found that students from the schools of Marxism and arts were the most likely to have hair loss problems, with mathematics, science and automotive engineering students the least likely, the report said.

While providing only anecdotal evidence, Dr Fu Lanqin, a dermatologist at the Peking Union Medical College Hospital in Beijing, was quoted as saying that there had been a noticeable increase in the number of young people seeking treatments for hair loss in recent years.

Patients “are losing their hair from the age of about 21 or 22, with the [condition] becoming obvious by 24 or 25” she said.

“[My] feeling is that this generation is losing its hair sooner than previous generations.”

Away from the medical research, consumer data also seems to support the claim.

Online shopping website Taobao said recently that hair loss products were among its top 40 bestselling lines in 2017, with consumers under 30 accounting for more than 40 per cent of sales.

Doctors cited in the China Newsweek article said the increased prevalence of baldness among young people could be due to societal changes.

Neurological factors, such as stress at work or study, insomnia and irregular life patterns were cited in more than 60 per cent of the cases of hair loss, it said.

“People who were born in the 80s or 90s have different concerns,” Zhao Junying, a doctor at Capital Medical University in Beijing, was quoted as saying.

“They are no longer worrying about food or keeping warm. They care more about their appearance. Many young people, especially the unmarried ones, are under great pressure.”

Restoring Lives as well as Hair

Restoring Lives as well as Hair

Losing your hair can be a bewildering and frightening experience and can sometimes make you feel like you are losing your mind.

You only have to Google ‘hair loss remedies’ to see that it is something that affects millions of people worldwide; the internet is bursting with home remedies, advice and medical opinion.

According to the NHS one in three people will suffer from hair loss at any one time.

But what happens when you have tried every herbal remedy going?

A leading hair loss expert based in West Yorkshire said there many reasons why hair loss is becoming more common.

Sean-Jordan Baruch runs a hair loss clinic in Pudsey and became fascinated by hair loss solutions after suffering his own problems.

“We are experiencing an increase of many forms of hair loss. It may be androgenetic alopecia, post pregnancy hair loss, medication hair loss or thinning of the hair. We have an answer for most hair loss issues within our centre.”

He said herbal remedies were good for the scalp but useless in thickening the hair itself.

“Many people clutch at straws and opt for a herbal remedy to assist and things like castor oil/mustard oil/olive oil are very good for the scalp but won’t reverse thinning hair.”

He said the starting point was to identify the cause of hair loss as there are many reasons why hair falls out in the first place.

There are four main types of hair loss.

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder in the skin that causes hair loss. This condition usually starts with one or more 50p-size bald circles on the scalp that usually range in size from a 1p piece to a 50p. These circles can move, multiply, grow, or go into remission for months or even years.

Traction alopecia is a fairly common type of hair loss and caused by pulling at hair follicles. Tight hair styles, hair pieces or braids woven into the existing hair can pull at hair follicles and eventually leave small bald spots on the scalp or visibly thin out hair.

Though it can often grow back, continued pressure over extended periods of time can cause permanent hair loss.

Alopecia totalis/universalis is one of the more serious types of hair loss, and is similar to alopecia areata in that it is an autoimmune disorder that causes the immune system to attack hair follicles.

However, rather than the smaller circles found with areata, totalis sufferers lose hair all over their heads while universalis sufferers experience hair loss on the entire body.

The precise causes are still unknown and, though many kinds of treatments are used by doctors, none have been shown to be specifically effective.

Telogen effluvium is more a description than a condition and is when more hair is in the dormant phase (telogen) than the growth phase (anagen). It appears as shedding or diffuse thinning over the scalp.

This type of hair loss can be very unpredictable and could be related to several causes, including hormonal imbalance. It can also happen after giving birth or possibly be triggered by high stress. It’s typically not permanent, and hair often grows back once stress decreases or hormones regain a healthy balance.

Androgenetic or androgenic alopecia (“male-pattern baldness,” “female-pattern baldness”) is more to do with genetic predisposition and family history. Androgenic alopecia is seen in both men and women. The hair loss in men is often faster, earlier onset, and more extensive.

Mr Baruch said: “Remember that not all hair loss is the same and genetics, hormones, and the environment can all play a role.”

He became fascinated by hair loss treatments after suffering his own hair loss issues and looked into hi-tech solutions.

“I have had all our procedures at the clinic so I can offer first hand advice which is very important.”

One of the most popular procedures offered by hair loss clinics is LLLT – a low level laser therapy.

Mr Baruch said: “I have used LLLT to arrest my hair fall, I used a non-surgical hair transplant on my crown for some years which looked amazing. When I introduced Baruch hair transplants to my company I underwent a pain-free procedure namely FUE (follicular Unit Extraction) where you have individual follicles removed from the back of my head and implanted in the crown. I now need no other procedures to maintain my hair.”

He’s been working in the hair loss business for 15 years now.

It isn’t simple vanity. Hair loss is hugely distressing for men and women.

“Our client base is approximately 65 per cent male and 35 per cent female at present. Hair loss is a major problem for many people globally.

“Hair is a crowning glory to most women. Many celebrities have come forward in the past 10 years and knocked years off their looks and a massive boost of confidence undergoing non-surgical or surgical transplants at our clinic.”

Mr Baruch said boosting confidence in people was one of the most rewarding aspects of his work.

“I have always strived to improve people’s lives and found restoring people;s hair gave me the same sense of achievement. I have worked in the hair loss industry for 15 years and expect many more years to come. We assist children, men and women and change their lives around to regain confidence and become happy with their lives.”

And he said he ensured that treatment was always affordable.

“We offer many treatments ranging from £55 up to £10,000.”

He even has a trademark catchphrase payment plan called ‘Pay as you Grow™’.

“We trademarked this in 2013 to allow patients to pay as they grow. This allows people on a lower income to join the programme.

“We carry a 98 per cent success rate with laser therapy (4,000 clients), 100 per cent with non-surgical grafting and 100 per cent for surgery. We are a registered medical Hair Transplant Centre with the Care Quality Commission which regulates health care providers and all doctors are GMC registered.”
