According to a four-year-long study conducted by the Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine and Kangbuk Samsung Hospital’s Department of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in Korea, there is a significant connection between working long hours and alopecia.

The researchers examined 13,000 employed Korean men. According to the findings, hair loss is due to stress at work, which leads to extra hormones that damage hair follicles.
