Some tie stress to loss of hair
“Hair loss” has become a buzzword in China for the stress people are experiencing in their daily lives, according to a recent survey by China Youth Daily. In a survey of 1,901 people aged between 18 and 35, about 64 percent said they would describe themselves as “nearly going bald” when feeling stressed. “Many people around me, including most of my roommates, worry about hair loss,” a college student in Beijing said. Yet she believes that many young people do not actually suffer from baldness. Instead, they use the words as a way to make a joke out of their stressful lives.
