He’s the frontman of band Bush and known for being married to No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani, and Gavin Rossdale is a suitable match for his fashion designer wife in the style stakes. Pictured out in Van Nuys this week, the couple looked every bit the rock and roll royalty they’re known for being, although Rossdale’s apparent hair loss was rather visible due to his combed-back rockabilly hairstyle.
At the age of 47, Rossdale is certainly not alone in his hair loss woes: male pattern hair loss can begin at any age after puberty and gets increasingly likely as the years go by. We go bald because of genetics, which means that we inherit the predisposition to pattern hair loss from our family tree and no amount of medicine can prevent people from being born with the predisposition.
No Doubt About Hair Loss
However, it’s also true that certain things appear to trigger the early onset of hair loss or speed up the balding process, such as stress or illness. Whilst these situations vary from person to person, the delicate nature of our hair system means that it’s incredibly sensitive to changes going on elsewhere in the body, and sadly there is no miracle cure.
Once the onset of pattern hair loss has begun, most men will find that their hair gradually thins, and in Gavin’s case this is accompanied by a receding hairline. For men wanting to prevent baldness, a tailored hair loss treatment programme can not only halt their rate of hair loss but also regrow the thinning areas, provided that the follicles have not stopped producing hair completely.
Male pattern hair loss will only become more noticeable over time, so it’s important to start treatment sooner rather than later. An effective treatment programme would include the two clinically proven for hair loss medications that have been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, as only these can claim to regrow hair.
The first of these, Propecia, works by blocking DHT, the androgen that causes pattern hair loss in the first place due to damaging follicles atop the scalp. Blocking DHT causes no harm to the body as the androgen is not needed after puberty has finished, and when Propecia is taken the scalp hair follicles are given time to recover and stop their miniaturisation.
The second medication, minoxidil, is a topical cream which appears to stimulate hair regrowth when applied to the affected areas. Belgravia Pharmacies produce a variety of strengths of minoxidil, which enables our hair loss specialists to prescribe the optimum daily dosage for your specific condition. Gavin might benefit from our unique high strength minoxidil cream, which has proven to be particularly effective for stubborn receding hairlines.
Belgravia’s comprehensive approach to treating hair loss combines proven medications with hair growth boosters that improve the general health of the hair and scalp, ensuring that regrowth is thick and healthy and growing at the fastest rate possible.
