People appearing on the radio are not known to worry overly about their appearance, for obvious reasons. But it seems that Jason King, better known as JK from the presenting double-act JK and Joel, was nonetheless keen to do something about his noticeably thinning hair.
King revealed to the Yorkshire Post recently that he has had a hair replacement system fitted to conceal his hair loss. “Hair loss is often seen as just ‘one of those things that happen’,” he told the newspaper. “But it can very hard to come to terms with it as it affects the way you see yourself as well as your confidence.”
JK and Joel have worked in radio together since the late nineties, and are perhaps best known for their stint presenting the Radio One Official UK Chart Show from 2004-2007. But their success has led the duo, who currently present the Breakfast Show on Radio Aire, to present numerous TV programs such as the CBBC kids show Hider in the House. This move to television contributed to King’s decision to do something about his increasing baldness, it seems.
“Working in children’s television, it’s obviously important to convey an image of vitality, energy, and, I suppose, a youthful edge, so it doesn’t help when you realise you are going bald,” he told the Post, adding, “I never thought I’d see the day when my career relied upon my looks.”
Male Pattern Baldness
King, who is 36, suffers from Male Pattern Baldness, a genetic form of hair loss which affects many men at some point in their lives, sometimes as early as their twenties. In King’s case it began as steadily thinning hair when he was 25, and has since become a visible bald patch.
While Wayne Rooney took the expensive hair transplantation route of dealing with Male Pattern Baldness, JK instead opted for a hair replacement system. This is essentially a swimming cap-like contraption covered in human hair which is then glued in over the scalp. He will need to return to the hair centre on a regular basis to have the system removed, cleaned and re-cut.
Is there an effective and affordable way to deal with hair loss?
Our advice to DJ JK would be to give a treatment programme a go as he might be able to thicken his hair density without the need for a synthetic hair replacement system. Many Belgravia treatment users have achieved similar results from the use of a combination medicated treatment programme.
The techniques The Belgravia Centre uses to combat hair loss are scientifically proven to treat cases of genetic hair loss, and involve actually re-growing hair, rather than concealing or moving the problem.
Our hair loss experts have a long history of success stories in treating Male Pattern Baldness. We use a range of proven pharmaceutical treatments, such as Propecia and Minoxidil, as well as non-invasive clinical treatments and hair growth boosters, to prevent hair loss due to Male Pattern Baldness and promote re-growth.
