Hair Loss in Men is Rather Common but Many Hardly Ever Seek Help
The unfortunate incident at the Oscars 2022 edition, involving Will Smith smacking comedian Chris Rock on stage, brought to light the sensitivities surrounding hair loss. Jada Pinkett Smitt suffers from Alopecia Areata, which is an autoimmune type of hair loss characterized by small to medium sized circular patches of complete hair loss, a condition that can affect both women and men. However, men are the ones who often find it difficult to discuss openly the hair loss problems they face, let alone seek help.
