Christian Bale Goes Bald For Movie Role

Christian Bale Shaved HeadHe’s the British star that has taken Hollywood by storm in films such as The Dark Knight Rises, but when he jetted into LAX Airport in Los Angeles, Christian Bale was barely recognisable. Sporting a bald head after voluntary hair loss, and having visibly gained weight for an upcoming film role, the star looked a far cry from his usual svelte form and his previous hair style of tousled brown locks.

It’s not the first time that the star, known for his method acting, has changed his appearance dramatically for a role, previously losing 63 pounds for his part in 2004 film The Machinist. However, his current role has not only involved Bale gaining a significant amount of weight, it has also meant him shaving his head to give the appearance of baldness. The 35 year old will be playing the role of Melvin Weinberg, a paunchy con man in movie American Hustle.

Baleing On Hair

If Christian Bale’s bald head is seeming a little too familiar, you might be one of the millions of men who deal with male pattern hair loss by shaving it all off. If you’re happy with the shaved look, as many men are, then baldness doesn’t present a problem, and a study has shown that bald men are perceived as more manly, suggesting the look can certainly work in your favour!

However, if you’re not keen on rocking a bare head, there is another option open to you that doesn’t involve a surgical hair transplant. A clinically proven hair loss treatment plan can halt the rate of hair loss and regrow thinning hair, providing that the area you’re treating is not completely shiny and bald.

A hair loss treatment programme must contain at least one clinically proven medication in order to be effective. Ideally, a treatment plan for male pattern hair loss would contain the only two medications that have been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA for treating hair loss.

Making The Choice

These medications are Propecia and minoxidil. Propecia acts by blocking DHT, the hormone that causes scalp follicles to begin producing weaker, wispy hair. Propecia is an oral tablet that comes in a standard daily dose regardless of how severe your hair loss might be.

Minoxidil works by stimulating hair regrowth, and whilst scientists are still unsure what exactly it is about the topical treatment that makes it so effective, both clinical trials and the thousands of Belgravia patients who have seen huge differences in their before and during treatment photographs are testament to its efficacy, in particular our extra-strength minoxidil cream.

Of course, whether your hair is long or short, ensuring that it’s in its best condition possible is important when treating hair loss. Based on this, it’s advisable to incorporate a variety of hair growth boosters into your hair loss treatment plan, and a hair loss specialist can advise you on the best products for your hair and scalp type.
