Tom Cruise may have a withering film career and a badly exposed personal life, but if there’s one thing he’s managed to maintain through all these years it’s his hairline. Or has he?
According to a Star Magazine insider, the Top Gun hero is using hair loss treatments to hold onto his locks as well.
“Tom is using Rogaine because his [hair] is thinning. Plus he gets weekly massages to stimulate growth,” the source said.
The 46 year-old had shaved his hair short once before after splitting from ex-wife Nicole Kidman, but it seems the former sex symbol isn’t prepared for a bald look he can’t control.
Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men but there a number things that could have contributed to Cruise’s thinning hair, which has always been thick and (dare I say) luscious. Stress, nutritional deficiencies and illness are just some things that can lead to excess shedding. The cause of Cruise’s hair loss is unknown – as is the authenticity of the source for that matter – however we’re glad to hear he’s using Rogaine, or minoxidil, which is a clinically proven hair loss treatment.
However, using minoxidil alone is unlikely to solely stop genetic hair loss. There are a few trusted hair loss treatments available but not everyone will be suited to one particular solution. If you’re concerned about hair loss, you should consult a specialist to get personalised advice and an individualised treatment program which tackles the situation from every angle.
For some men, baldness isn’t a big deal and it suits them. Perhaps for Tom though, it was his character Les Grossman, the fat, bald and hot-headed studio executive in Tropic Thunder, which made him want to take up preventative action now.
