According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 34% of those Pakistanis who faced hair problems used home remedies to treat those hair problems; 44% did nothing.
A nationally representative sample of those adult men and women who said that they have faced problems/diseases related to hair, from across the four provinces was asked, “If you have one or more than one problem/disease related to hair, what have you done to treat that?” In response to this question, 44% respondents said they did nothing to treat their hair problems, 34% respondents said they used a home remedy, 13% visited a doctor, while 8% chose to visit a homeopathic doctor or take homeopathic medicine and 3% chose to visit a hakeem or take medicine from a hakeem.
Question: “If you have one or more than one problem/disease related to hair, what have you done to treat that?”
(Multiple response question so the sum may exceed 100)
