Anchorman Cast Wear Big Hair For 70’s Sequel

anchorman ron burgundy perm will ferrell steve carell paul ruddIt’s the sequel that everyone’s waiting for, and the filming for Anchorman: The Legend Continues carried on this week in Manhattan. Many members of the original cast are back, along with cameos from Kanye West and fellow rapper Drake, who donned 70’s style wigs. However several of the the main cast members appeared to be sporting their own hair.

Permed To Perfection

Leading man Will Ferrell, along with Steve Carell and Paul Rudd – managed to carry off an impressive perm-like styles. However, this look was probably achieved by using curlers rather than chemicals, explaining how the cast were also pictured with their natural hair on set.

If seeing Ferrell and crew has led to pangs of jealousy on your part, getting a perm is probably not the best way to deal with it. Instead, we can look at how men can prevent their hair from thinning as they age. If you have inherited the genes that can cause the onset of male pattern hair loss from your family tree, it’s likely that you will begin to notice some hair loss in your teens or twenties, when your hairline will also recede from a juvenile to a mature level.

If your hair has noticeably thinned, it’s advisable to visit a hair loss specialist to establish whether this thinning is male pattern hair loss (which it is in 95% of cases) or whether something else is to blame. Assuming that pattern hair loss is the cause, a hair loss treatment plan is your best bet in terms of halting hair loss and regrowing thinning hair.

Hairy Harmony

In order to be effective, a treatment programme should contain the two medications that have been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA (the UK and US medical regulator bodies) as clinically proven hair loss treatments.

The first of these, Propecia, is an oral tablet that works by blocking the hormone that causes hair loss by attacking the follicles atop the scalp, leading them to produce weaker, thinner hair. By blocking DHT, the scalp follicles are able to recover and can begin producing healthy hair once again.

Often, though, damaged follicles need to be stimulated in order to produce new hair. This can be achieved with minoxidil, a topical liquid or high strength minoxidil cream that is applied twice a day. Whilst scientists are still unsure exactly why minoxidil works so well, the fact is that based on clinical trials and the many success stories achieved for our patients, it can be highly effective, particularly for regrowing a receding hairline.

Alongside these two treatments, a great head of hair can be achieved by using a variety of treatment boosters. Ranging from nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics, which has been specifically created to boost hair health, to specialist shampoos and conditioners formulated for your hair type and with any scalp conditions in mind, treatment boosters keep hair looking and feeling great, leaving you able to style it how you choose and not to cover thinning.
