A recent study published in the journal Cancer Research found that while the hair growth rate of Japanese people may be low, the overall rate of hair loss in Japanese people is high.
According to the study, Japanese people have been reported to have an average of 1.8 percent hair loss per year, and about half of that is due to hair loss.
The study also found that Japanese women have significantly higher rates of hair growth than their Western counterparts.
“Japanese women have been found to have significantly high rates of total hair loss (up to 10.4%) compared to the American average (1.2%), and the rate of scalp hair loss was higher than that of the American (2.3%) and European average (2%),” the study’s lead author Dr. Masahiro Sakurai, a professor of dermatology at Imperial College London, told NBC News.
“This may be because Japanese women tend to use a variety of products, including some hair-care products, for the same reasons that the American and European populations do.”
“The problem of hair is a worldwide problem, and we know that the European countries are the top-producing countries,” Dr. Sakurai said.
“In this study, we looked at the hair-related risk factors in Japanese women and found that the number of hair follicles and hair-growth rates were similar across the three different regions.
This could indicate that the problem of excessive hair growth is not specific to Japan, but may have more to do with the cultural context of Japanese society.”
Dr. Samahara Hoshino, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Tokyo, who was not involved in the study but has studied hair loss and skin conditions in Japan, said the study showed the importance of using the right products to avoid hair loss, especially if you are trying to maintain a healthy look.
“The reason why it is important to use the right product is because it will reduce the likelihood of developing hair loss,” Dr Hoshico said.
Dr. Hoshio added that it is not known whether or not Japanese women are more susceptible to hair-loss, but she said they have the potential to be more susceptible if they are not able to maintain good hair growth and manage their diet and lifestyle.
“One of the most important things for women to do is to reduce their consumption of fat,” she said.
Another important factor in hair loss is diet.
“Many women find that they lose weight as they age,” Dr Sakurai added.
“However, Japanese women often do not follow the recommended diet because it is a diet that they do not like, and this leads to excessive hair loss.”
“I don’t think this problem will disappear in the near future,” Dr Shigeki Matsuyama, a dermatologist and professor of medical and clinical genetics at the Kyoto University School of Medicine, told the BBC.
“Hair loss is one of the major problems in the Western world, and Japanese people are more sensitive to it.
Therefore, we need to make sure that Japanese people adopt healthier lifestyles, especially when it comes to the use of hair-replacement products.”
