Eastenders Ricky Is Off To Hollywood, Is His Hair Ready For His Close Up?

ricky butcher sid owen LA hollywood receding hairlineSid Owen, better known to many as Ricky Butcher in popular soap Eastenders, is allegedly quitting the streets of Walford for good for the sunshine and glamour of Hollywood. The 41 year old, who in a very LA moment was papped enjoying lunch with blonde actress Maria Christina and her pet chihuahua, is hoping to make the transition into movies from acting in soaps.

From The Old Vic To Hollywood Boulevard

Speaking to The Sunday People, Owen explained that he preferred the weather stateside and had been attending “lots of meetings,” apparently with the plan of having another go at film acting after the megaflop film Revolution in which he starred in 1985 alongside Al Pacino, which ended up losing tens of millions of dollars at the box office.

However, the ex Eastender may want to pay a little attention to what appears to be the beginnings of a receding hairline if he wants to prevent baldness and keep his hair looking LA young.

The good news is that male pattern hair loss, the most common type of hair loss which Owen seems to be experiencing, can be treated very effectively with a combination hair loss treatment programme.

Ricky’s Receding Hairline

To avoid being ripped off, it’s important that any hair loss plan that Sid goes for contains at least one of the two clinically proven for hair loss medications, which have been both licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, the UK and US medical regulatory bodies respectively. In turn, this means that sufficient clinical trials have been carried out to prove that both medications can make a significant difference for men experiencing hair loss.

The first of the two medications, minoxidil, appears to stimulate hair follicles on the scalp when applied locally. It’s dose dependent, so it’s important that you seek advice from a hair loss specialist about what strength of solution is best for your degree and type of hair loss.

Belgravia also combine their minoxidil solutions and creams with other added ingredients that appear to block DHT, the androgen that causes pattern hair loss. Our minoxidil 12.5% cream is particularly effective on a receding hairline.

Hollywood Hair Required

Minoxidil works best when uses alongside the second clinically proven hair loss medication, Propecia. This oral medication blocks DHT in a different way than azelaic acid and other minoxidil added ingredients appear to. DHT causes follicles atop the scalp to shrink, and subsequently to produce weaker, wispy hair in the place of your usual healthy locks.

If left untreated, hair will eventually stop growing at all from these follicles, so it’s important to begin a hair loss treatment programme when you notice thinning. Alongside the two medications, there are a variety of treatment boosters that Sid could use, and whilst these alone will not halt hair loss, they ensure that hair is nourished by the body and kept as healthy as possible.
