Some tie stress to loss of hair

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

“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.
