The baldest countries on EarthIt’s an inevitable fact of ageing for many men. By the age of 50 half of the world’s male population can expect to be suffering from significant hair loss but although it’s global problem you might be surprised to learn that the incidence and severity of hair loss is far from geographically equal. The rate and type of hair loss changes from region to region and country to country.

UK fifth most bald country in the world

The bad news for us Europeans is that we’re the continent with the worst incidence of male pattern baldness. The poor men of the Czech republic are most affected with a 42.79 incidence of baldness although we don’t fare much better here in the UK, at a rate of 39.23%. The country with the best record for keeping its hair is China, although the whole of the Far Eastern region boast lower levels of male pattern baldness. Fortunately for those with a propensity to lose hair there are some effective treatments that can slow its effects or even provide a permanent solution. Many celebrities are opting for hair transplants and are happy to talk about the procedure openly. The advances in technology and technique over the last decades have made the transplant highly successful although it’s still prohibitively expensive.

SMP is available in many countries

For those who don’t have such deep pockets there are other effective options such as Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) where a highly realistic illusion of a close cropped hairstyle is created by a skilled practitioner over the course of 2-3 sessions. The great news is that SMP clinics are popping up all over the globe. So, whatever part of the world you live in there’s no need to despair. If you’re concerned that you’re losing your locks then seek expert advice from a professional hair loss clinic and they’ll be happy to advise you on how you can deal with the problem, regardless of where you live.
