The nation knows him as one half of MasterChef’s judging duo alongside fellow chef John Torode, but Greg Wallace is eager for everyone to know that when people send him jokey pictures of their bald mates on Twitter, he takes notice and isn’t too happy about his own hair loss being the constant butt of people’s jokes.
“Just A Bald Bloke With Glasses”
Speaking to The Radio Times, Wallace talked about how he loved his job, but argued that he and Torode are “household names but not big movie stars” and as a “south-east London blue collar boy” people think he wont react to rudeness on account of his being on television.
Jesting that he had previously “clumped” the internet pests, Wallace pleaded with fans to stop sending him pictures of their dinners (he gets about 30 a day) and also to stop posting pictures of their friends who are bald with glasses. “They’re not my double – just a bald bloke with glasses,” sighed the longtime MasterChef judge.
Hairlines For Household Names
The 48-year-old is certainly not in the minority when it comes to hair loss, if only he had acted earlier, there’s every chance that he could have have prevented baldness. Being as half of men in their 50’s experience some degree of hair loss (and we see many men in their 20’s who have noticed the first signs of shedding) we’re committed to raising awareness of the great results that a personalised hair loss treatment programme can achieve.
Using medication approved by both the UK medical regulatory body the MHRA and its American counterpart the FDA, those genetically predisposed to baldness can counter the effect of androgen DHT, which targets hair follicles atop the scalp causing them to produce weaker and eventually no hair. Propecia, the first of two approved medications, functions by blocking DHT, and is taken as a daily tablet. The second, minoxidil, is available in a variety of strengths and with additional ingredients that appear to inhibit DHT in various ways; it is applied directly to the scalp and stimulates follicles.
Preventing Baldness: Don’t Make A Meal Of It
Together, the two medications are the most effective way to combat balding, and those men experiencing a receding hairline may benefit in particular from our unique high strength minoxidil cream formulation, made in our on-site pharmaceutical laboratories.
Alongside the medication, your hair loss specialist will recommend the best treatment boosters for your hair and loss type. These can include the FDA cleared LaserComb, which stimulates deep into the scalp to encourage hair growth, and our nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics, which provides the body with appropriate nutrients for healthy hair growth.
