China’s hair loss

Sources report that over 16 million Chinese people suffer from some form of hair loss.

A healthy adult has about 100,000 hairs and loses 50 to 100 hairs daily. “If you lose more than 100 hairs a day, you should see a doctor,” says Shao Guoyun, a representative of the Shanghai Master Biology Gene Science and Technology Development Company.

Data shows that China’s coastal and developed areas have more people suffering from hair loss, especially among higher salary earners, compared to inalnd and rural regions.

In Hong Kong, meanwhile, expert Lin Shuling says five to six people in every ten currently have a hair loss problem, up from the two to three people in ten reported ten years ago.

“Nowadays, unbalanced diets, job pressure, environmental pollution and television and computer radiation are the main causes of hair loss.” Lin also pointed to individuals who frequently dye or perm their hair, calling it an “extremely harmful” practice.

With more people suffering from hair loss, China’s market for hair re-growth products has hugely expanded. Shao cautioned, however, that “the Chinese market is filled with fake hair growth liniment at present. Patients should attend standard hospitals or clinics for consultations and to buy quality hair re-growth liniment.”
