Simon Pegg And The Hair Loss Battle?

simon pegg black hair receding hairlineIt was at the end of 2011 when Simon Pegg first drummed up some media speculation regarding his hair loss, with the press asking whether Pegg was really sporting a fuller head of hair than he had been in the proceeding months when he attended the premier of Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol in Paris.

Whilst there has been no official word about Pegg’s hair, his receding hairline did seem to have improved slightly, although recent images seem to show that Pegg’s hair has thinned considerably, suggesting any improvements may have been undone.

Pegged As Hair Loss

As part of his rather gothic get up for new movie The World’s End, Pegg’s dark hair may be rather less forging than his usual light haired style in terms of highlighting his thinning locks. However, not only did Pegg’s hair appear thin, but his hairline had noticeably receded, leaving a pronounced ‘widow’s peak’ on display.

If Pegg wanted to halt the rate of his hair loss and regrow the thinning areas, he could potentially consider a hair loss treatment programme that contained the two hair loss medications that have been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, important benchmarks in assuring that  the medications are capable of doing what they say they can do.

Balding’s End

The first of these medications is Propecia, a DHT blocker that acts by preventing the baldness causing androgen from acting on hair follicles atop the scalp. This ensures that hair follicles are given a chance to recover, meaning hair loss is stalled and healthier hair can be grown once more. Should Pegg decide to use Propecia, he could expect his hair to increase in overall thickness.

A second medication, minoxidil, works very well when used alongside Propecia and is particularly good in its extra strength minoxidil cream form for treating stubborn receding hairlines. A hair loss specialist would be able to advise Pegg on the ideal combined daily dosage for his apparent hair loss, with the further possibility of adding ingredients such as azelaic acid and medroxyprogesterone to the formulation, both of which appear to block DHT when applied locally.

A hair loss specialist is also on hand to combine appropriate medication with a variety of hair growth boosters. Whilst these additions to your treatment plan are incapable of stopping hair loss when used alone, they function as a means to ensure that your hair is kept in its best possible condition. From our comprehensive dietary supplement Hair Vitalics, to the FDA cleared LaserComb which works by stimulating deep into the scalp, a fully bespoke plan gives you the best possible chance of beating hair loss without the need for a surgical procedure.
