Even though they’re pretty good at hiding it, men are quite genuinely concerned about the possibility of hair loss. Although Prince William doesn’t seemed too phased by it, and why should he be? He’s got plenty else going for him – a beautiful girlfriend, a manly involvement in the army, a healthy passion for hunting, not to mention a future as the king of England! But for some men who can see the evidence of male pattern baldness in the family – and let’s face it, Wills would’ve seen it coming – it’s something that they’re generally pretty keen to avoid.
Male pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss in men, affecting about 85% at some stage of their life. It’s a gradual process but any number of factors such as stress, illness and various lifestyle choices can trigger its onset. It can start as early as puberty and is in fact becoming more prevalent in younger men. We first saw its clutches on Prince William in 2002 when he was just 20, even though his father Charles’ bald spot wasn’t apparent until he was 28.
Hair loss in men is relatively easy to treat but the earlier it is addressed, the better results one can expect. Judging by the Windsor history, matters will only get worse in the ‘heir’ department for Wills, although there has been speculation about whether the Prince has started using medical hair loss treatments. There were rumours that he’d started using Propecia sometime last year and either his bald patch has been cleverly hidden of late or he did in fact decide to take control of his hair loss. Wow – the future king really could have it all!
If you don’t have the royal luxuries and princely lifestyle to fall back on and are concerned about your thinning hair, you should consult a hair loss specialist. The treatment of male pattern baldness generally requires a combined approach to tackle all aspects of hair loss, but the recommended options vary from person to person so it is essential to get a proper diagnosis and individualised treatment.
