Nearly half of Irish males under 30 suffer from going bald
A pretty revealing new survey bares some figures on the extent of baldness in young Irish males.
“Chrome dome”, “Skirted egg”, “Bald as a coot” and “Slaphead” are all excellently offensive words for decrying a mate’s less than ample hair supply and according to a new survey around half of you may have heard some of these harsh words.
The survey was carried out by DHI Hair Restoration about the level of hair loss in young Irish males and it highlighted that 49percent of young Irish men under the age of 30 claim to be experiencing hair loss.
The survey also said that 81percent of those with hair loss suffered a massive blow to their confidence because of the natural process and Mother Nature’s dick-ish behaviour.
72percent of those surveyed are reluctant to talk about this issue with their peers. Interestingly the survey highlighted that only 21percent of men believe that looks are the most important factor in attracting members of the opposite sex.
Not everyone is Wayne Rooney or Stephen Ireland and can shell out on a new mop being weaved into the 'auld cranium but there are ways of sorting out hair-loss as our man Oisin has been reporting in the past few weeks.
Bald, but still able to kickass
In fairness we think the worries about hair-loss might be overplayed in the survey - a quick poll of our female colleagues at Her.ie concluded that bald men can be quite sexy with Thierry Henry, Bruce Willis and Zinedine Zidane all being mentioned.
What do you reckon is the angst of male-pattern baldness being overplayed? After all it is only natural.
