 Hair  Loss,  Dandruff, Weight Gain are Biggest Appearance Concerns Among Kiwi Men

A new survey has found that men in New Zealand are very much worried about their looks with hair loss, dandruff and weight gain being their three biggest concerns.

In the Head and Shoulders Hair Retain Survey, 29 percent said that they were worried about having dandruff and 26 percent were concerned about losing their hair.

The results of the trans-Tasman survey also show that males were anxious about their waistlines. 63 percent were concerned about putting on weight.

The survey involved over 2,000 respondents.

Auckland psychologist Sara Chatwin says having hair is closely aligned with many masculine characteristics, so when men lose their hair, their self-esteem often plummets.

"Many men define themselves by the way they wear their hair. This may be due to traditional beliefs that suggest hair is associated with virility, social status, strength and youth," Stuff.co.nz quoted Chatwin as saying.

"When their hair diminishes or gets dandruff (that is perceived as dirty) men may feel less virile, weak, older and generally less attractive," Chatwin added.
