Seven out of ten men prefer women with long hair, according to a new poll carried out by a dating website that has over 650,000 members. Men were also asked which celebrity they would most like to date, with Amanda Holden taking the top spot and everyone from Hollywood starlet Scarlett Johansson to Brit singer and actress Billie Piper featuring in the top ten.
Women looking for long term relationships needn't cancel their hair cut just yet, however, as the dating site in question caters for men and women looking for extra marital affairs, or singles looking for brief flings. However, if we take the 72% of men who preferred long locks and assume that they're not the only guys who prefer the longer hair look, what does this mean for women trying to survive the dating game whilst dealing with hair loss?
Of course, you should wear your hair in the style that you prefer, but we know that many women wear their hair shorter because it is too thin to wear in a longer style, and can look 'straggly' with too much scalp showing though. If you are struggling to achieve your ideal hair style due to these reasons, a bespoke hair loss treatment plan can work wonders in not only stopping your hair from becoming too thin, but also by regrowing thinning areas to a better thickness.
At the heart of a hair loss treatment programme for women is the clinically proven treatment minoxidil. Whilst the exact science behind minoxidil's effectiveness as a hair loss treatment is still unknown, we do know that it can show extremely good results, and that it is dose dependent, meaning tricky areas of hair loss can often be treated with a high strength minoxidil 10% cream where lower strength solutions haven't worked.
As well as varying the strength of your minoxidil treatment, other active ingredients can be added to the formulation which appear to tackle hair loss via another approach. These ingredients include azelaic acid, which works by inhibiting the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. This enzyme joins with testosterone to form the powerful androgen DHT, a hormone that attacks hair follicles on top of the scalp, causing them to shrink and produce weaker hair, and eventually no hair at all. Other added ingredients such as Medroxyprogesterone (MPG) and caffeine both appear to block DHT itself when applied locally to the affected hair follicles.
Alongside the minoxidil treatment, the strength of which will be selected for you by a dedicated hair loss specialist after your initial consultation, there are a number of treatment boosters, which in our many years of experience treating thousands of women with hair loss have been shown to complement the minoxidil treatment.
Treatment boosters include our tailor-made nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics, and relaxing clinical treatment sessions when you visit for your check-ups and progress updates. Whether you feel at your best with long or short hair, a hair loss treatment programme can ensure your right to choose.
