Indian women can now avail a hair dye treatment for men, but not all women are happy with it.
According to a new study, women can’t be trusted to take care of their hair, even when they’re pregnant or nursing a child.
This has prompted a lot of women to opt for a cheaper and less effective treatment, but it could also mean that a hair removal treatment is not always needed, especially if there are other options available, said Shilpa Deshpande, professor of cosmetic surgery at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR).
“I am a woman who has always been very critical of hair treatment, even in the case of my own hair,” said Deshpade.
“But as a woman I always felt comfortable when my hair was brushed or groomed and had a little touch, like a little comb.”
Now I feel like there is a huge need to do something that will help my hair and it is really important for women, particularly the pregnant women, to be comfortable with their hair being treated.
The research, which looked at data from over 3,000 women from the state of Maharashtra, was conducted between January and March 2016. “
It’s something that we have been doing for the last 20 years, but I think the time has come to have this conversation with women and the medical community,” she said.
The research, which looked at data from over 3,000 women from the state of Maharashtra, was conducted between January and March 2016.
The women were asked about their use of various hair removal treatments, their health problems and how they felt about their hair’s condition.
The findings of the study revealed that among the 3,027 women surveyed, women were more likely to have experienced at least one side effect from hair removal, including pain, itching, irritation and even loss of hair in some areas.
However, women who had undergone hair removal had a lower risk of getting hair infection than women who did not.
“The hair removal side effects that women reported were more about irritation and some of them were worse than the hair removal,” said Dr Gaurav Gopinath, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the TIFR and one of the authors of the paper.
“The more severe the side effects, the greater the risk that a woman might have hair infection.”
While hair removal can be used for both men and a woman, it is more effective for women.
“Our study found that the longer the treatment is conducted, the better the results are, so the longer hair removal is done, the more the women are satisfied with the results,” said Gopinsath.
According to the Indian government, the main reasons women are opting for hair removal are: to avoid hair loss, to manage allergies and to control infections.
According in the latest survey, among the women surveyed for the study, 69% of the respondents said that their hair condition was good and 31% said they had no side effects.
