Does Ethnicity Play a Role in Hair Loss?


Does Ethnicity Play a Role in Hair Loss?

  • 4 min. read

Male pattern hair loss is something which a majority of men experience at some or the other point in life. Even though the rigorousness and severity of hair loss may vary person to person, it is still a big question that why it happens?

Ethnicity, which is controlled by genetics, is the main cause of hair loss, and interestingly enough, particular races have higher rates of hair loss than other groups.

Let’s take a look at different races and the varying likelihoods of baldness:

Let’s take a look at different races and the varying likelihoods of baldness

Approximately there are thirty percent of white men who get affected by age 30 years, at least fifty percent men are affected by age 50 years, and eighty percent of them are affected by age 70 years. Generally, Caucasian men are more likely to experience hair loss in larger numbers, but that doesn’t mean you won’t experience thinning hair if you are of Asian or African descent.

Whereas as per research, it is believed that androgenetic alopecia also varies with race: white men are more likely to develop baldness as compared to men of American Indian, Asian and African heritage. Also, the degree of hair loss often is more extensive in white men than in men of the American Indian, Asian and African ethnicities.



Human skull shape plays a significant role in hair loss. Since some ethnic groups have a predisposed skull shape and characteristics that are more common among people of a race, this is the reason why it varies from person to person as well as each race and ethnicity. This plays a role in hair loss, as some skull shapes results in more bone growth in adult years which then starts the hair loss process at an earlier age than others.

As a case study, people who have a unique skull shape, with strong hairlines at the front and broad foreheads that oppose bone growth, are less likely to suffer from hair loss along the crown of the scalp.

Additionally, people who live in remote populations, restricts diversities in genetics among their offspring. Due to this reason, they share similar characteristics that are passed down from one generation to another, including their resistance to hair loss.

Countries where hair loss is most prevalent

As per a recent study, the top five countries in terms of thinning hair were all of the European countries. France, Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom were also on the list. The United States was sixth on the list, while Canada was tenth. Russia, Italy, Poland, and the Netherlands also finished high on the list.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
