Survey Finds Men Prize Hair More than Cars, Plasma TVs

Share Article

Forget BestBuy. A recent survey finds that the top item on men's wish lists isn't a Mac or Sony plasma -- it's hair.

When it comes to the male mind, few things rank as high on the "wish list" as a lavish car or plasma TV - except when it comes to hair.

A recent online survey by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) found that over 57-percent of men would gladly trade one of their most prized possessions for a full head of hair.

"Hair loss can be a devastating condition for many men, leading to anxiety, loss of self-confidence and a general feeling of helplessness," said Alan J. Bauman, M.D., a prominent hair restoration physician and member of the ISHRS. "This survey is a great testament to the desperation many men feel about losing their hair."

Dr. Bauman, a top U.S. expert in hair loss, has treated hundreds of men, from all ages and walks of life, at his clinic in Boca Raton and notes the survey is an important indicator of male anxiety about hair loss. According to the ISHRS survey, a significant number of men would prefer a full head of hair over a variety of treasured personal items, such as:

  •     STEREO SYSTEM: 26-percent of men prefer hair
  •     CELL PHONE: 21-percent of men prefer hair
  •     EXPENSIVE CAR: 17-percent of men prefer hair
  •     LAPTOP: 17-percent of men prefer hair
  •     PLASMA TV: 13-percent of men prefer hair
  •     BOAT: 6-percent of men prefer hair
