Young men’s confidence affected by hair loss

The results of a national survey, conducted by DHI Hair Restoration about the level of hair loss experienced by Irish men, have highlighted that 51 per cent of young Connacht men (under 30 ) claim to be experiencing hair loss. The survey also revealed the extent of the psychological impact of male hair loss, with 24 per cent of those surveyed in Connacht claiming that their confidence is badly affected, particularly in social situations due to the issue.

The survey highlights that hair loss concerns a high proportion of Irish men at a relatively young age and a massive 71 per cent of those surveyed in Connacht are reluctant to talk about this issue with their peers. Interestingly an optimistic 90 per cent of Connacht men rely on their personality and claim it to be the most important factor in attracting members of the opposite sex.

Some of the key findings of the national survey highlight that 75 per cent of under 35s feel less attractive to the opposite sex due to hair loss, 49 per cent of men who experience hair loss do so before they reach 30, 49 per cent of under 35s would seek treatment for their hairloss if their partner wanted them to, and eight in 10 men report their father also suffers hair loss.

The Irish DHI (Direct Hair Implementation ) hair restoration clinic is based in the Beacon Medical Campus, Dublin 18. The latest hair restoration technique eliminates the use of scalpels, leaving no scarring, and involves no pain. Natural results can be achieved in just one visit to a DHI clinic.

Once the procedure is completed, new hair continues to grow naturally for life. The main aim of this new, advanced, technique is to increase the survival and growth of the hair follicles by diminishing their handling and the time they stay out of the skin.
