Men’s High Salaries Linked to Hair Loss

Are you a man earning £75,000 a year or more? The chances are you’re more likely to blame work stress for your thinning hair than those earning £15,000.

Men Who Earn More Are More Likely to Go Bald says Survey

A recent survey has revealed that 50% of men believe pressure from their job is playing a part in hair loss. The other half believe genetics are more likely to be behind their receding hairlines.

In contrast, almost 75% of women blame work stress for their hair loss, and one in three women have noticed thinning hair.

Stress-related hair loss

In the UK, of those earning more than £75,000, one in five blamed stress in the workplace for hair loss, whilst the figure for those on salaries of up to £15,000 was only one in ten. Adam Reed, co-founder of Percy & Reed Salon, revealed he had been affected by hair loss caused by work stress.

Telogen Effluvium or Pattern Baldness?

Almost half of men (47%) aged 25 to 34 are already experiencing thinning hair, whether as a result of genetic balding or stress. So how can you tell the difference?

Telogen Effluvium, a hair loss condition which causes the hair to thin can be brought on by extreme stress or trauma, is the most common manifestation of stress-related hair loss. Telogen Effluvium makes hair shed at a faster rate than normal. The hair stops growing and enters the resting phase prematurely, staying there for about three months before being shed. It’s a temporary condition and hair can start to regrow on its own, but in some cases the underlying cause of the stress will need to be addressed before hair starts to grow back.

With male pattern baldness, which is hereditary and has nothing to do with stress (although stress can exacerbate the condition), hair loss is usually more gradual, and once the hair is lost it will not grow back unless you have been using a clinically-proven hair loss treatment to stimulate regrowth. Also known as Androgenic Alopecia, male pattern baldness, is caused by actions of hormones on genetically predisposed hair follicles.

Firstly, you should look at trying to reduce and manage your stress. Stress is not only a cause of hair loss but it can also bring about or exacerbate other health conditions. Try to work on a better work/life balance, and use your diet, exercise and sleep routines to help boost your overall wellness and happiness. Switching off from the cause of your stress should benefit both your general health and your hair.

One in ten of us don’t know exactly what is causing our hair loss so the best course of action for anyone concerned about thinning hair or shedding is always to see a hair loss specialist for a tricho-check and an accurate diagnosis.

Depending on what kind of hair loss you are experiencing, your specialist can create a personalised hair loss treatment programme designed to help prevent further hair loss and aid regrowth.
