Us Brits share many traits with our American cousins – and we’re not just talking about a love of Friends or burgers. One transatlantic trend we have in common is that we don’t like our leaders to show signs of hair loss – and that is bad news for US presidential hopeful, Donald Trump.
The billionaire businessman and TV personality has thrown his proverbial hat into the ring as a Republican candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election.
The would-be POTUS announced his candidacy with the slogan “Make America Great Again.” Promising to be “the greatest jobs president that God ever created“, the larger-than-life property mogul certainly gained a lot of attention on social media.
But will the self-proclaimed “most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far,” prove a hit with the voters? Not if the long-standing relationship between hair loss and American presidents is anything to go by.
History tells us that if Donald Trump wants to win a seat in the Oval Office – should he win the nomination process – he may have to address his infamous combover first.
“Your hair will send significant messages”
Opposition candidate, Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, knows all about the importance of hair when it comes to the presidential race.
The former FLOTUS told crowds at a recent rally, “All our Presidents come into office looking so vigorous. And then we watch their hair grow greyer and greyer – Well, I may not be the youngest candidate in this race. But I will be the youngest woman president in the history of the United States! And the first grandmother as well. And one additional advantage: You won’t see my hair turn white in the White House. I’ve been colouring it for years!”
The Washington Post reported on some hair advice she gave to students at America’s prestigious Yale University in 2001. A smiling Clinton reportedly told them, “Your hair will send significant messages to those around you. What hopes and dreams you have for the world, but more, what hopes and dreams you have for your hair. Pay attention to your hair, because everyone else will.”
Should ‘The Donald’ decide it’s time to address his signature hairstyle – assuming his hair follicles are still active in the areas covered by his carefully-sculpted bouffant – he may want to start a regrowth campaign as well as a vote-winning one.
A comprehensive course of male hair loss treatments that feature clinically-proven components such as minoxidil, could help Trump Snr to halt his hair loss and promote regrowth. His thinning hair may also benefit from a number of hair growth boosters, especially Hair Vitalics dietary supplements – to maintain his hair’s health and inner strength during what’s likely to be a stressful, nationwide charm offensive.
Although many Belgravia clients who experience significant regrowth during treatment tell us their results have given them such a confidence boost, we’re not sure Mr. Trump needs any help in that department!
