Millions of women affected by hair loss

One in five women who had discussed the problem with their healthcare provider claimed the issue had not been taken seriously, leaving one in four feeling depressed about their hair loss.

Over two-fifths of people with hair loss said they felt less attractive as a result, while 16 per cent claimed they were left feeling unfeminine.

Three-fifths also said they thought their hair loss was stress-related.

Dr Kingsley, who is president of the World Trichology Society, said: ‘Because we are still searching for a reliable cure for genetic hair loss, GPs often fail to take patients seriously when they present with signs of thinning hair.’

The expert pointed out that while hair loss is not life-threatening, it can be ‘life-altering’.

He said the problem should be taken seriously and that available treatments can greatly improve women’s psychological health and quality of life.
