Psy Releases New Song Gentleman, But Is His Hair Thinning?

psy gangam style gentleman single ladiesHe sky rocketed to fame with his hit Gangnam Style, and the South Koren singer is already clocking up millions of YouTube views of his new single, Gentleman. Performing a cover of Beyonce’s hit tune Single Ladies in front of hundreds of screaming fans, the star’s outfit revealed rather a lot of him, and what appeared to be thinning hair was also visible.

Perhaps the gelled hair didn’t help, but the visible scalp on Psy’s head indicates that he may be experiencing male pattern hair loss, something that even the man behind the most viewed YouTube video of all time can’t avoid.

Gangnam Hairstyle

Because the predisposition to pattern hair loss is inherited from our family tree, we can’t do anything to prevent its onset, which can occur at any point after puberty in men, but we can halt the balding and regrow thinning hair with a hair loss treatment programme. At the age of 35, Psy has a 40% chance of experiencing noticeable hair loss, so his case is certainly not unusual.

Pattern hair loss occurs when the androgen DHT attacks follicles atop the scalp, causing them to shrink and as a result produce thinner, weaker hairs which appear like wispy baby hairs. Because DHT serves no useful purpose to the male body after puberty, there’s no harm in blocking it, something that can be achieved by taking Propecia.

The first of two clinically proven hair loss medications, Propecia comes in a standard dose and is taken daily in tablet form; it has shown great results for treating overall thinning of the hair. The second and only other hair loss medication to be licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA (the UK and US medical regulatory bodies) is minoxidil, which is dose dependent.

The Belgravia pharmaceutical laboratories produce liquids and high strength cream minoxidil formulations,  meaning that far more stubborn cases of hair loss can be potentially tackled. Should Psy notice a receding hairline in the future, a high strength minoxidil cream containing azelaic acid, which also appears to block DHT, could prove highly effective.

As well as incorporating these two clinically proven medications into his daily hair-care routine, Psy could benefit from an array of hair growth boosters, which would ensure that his regrowth is thick and healthy. From the FDA cleared LaserComb, which can help with and speed up hair regrowth, to nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics, which gives hair everything it needs to grow healthily, the YouTube star would ensure that he kept his gentlemanly looks for years to come.
