When a haircut is too short for you, or too long for someone else, your doctor can refer you to a specialist.
But if it’s too long, and you’re just beginning to feel better, your GP can recommend a more modern haircut, or even a “modern” haircut for someone with the same type of problem.
For example, some people are more prone to developing hair loss if they are wearing too many hats, or are having hair growth problems that make them less suitable for a classic moustache.
If your GP suggests a modern haircut for you or your loved one, it’s important to check that the condition is reversible.
Some types of hair loss are reversible, while others may require a surgical intervention.
Hair loss can also be a side effect of some medications, so your doctor will need to talk to you about that.
If you need a more traditional cut, it may be best to keep the old one, or change to a new one.
