Deciding how to deal with hair loss is an intensely personal choice and one that has not been helped by a perceived ‘stigma’ attached to men who decide to investigate ways to keep their hair.

This type of negative attitude, denigrating men exploring hair loss solutions as ‘vain’ and ignoring the emotional and psychological effects losing your hair can have, has thankfully been hugely reduced in recent years, to the point where it has been considered men’s equivalent of a having a breast enlargement.

This switch is largely due to the influence of a handful of celebrities being brave enough to share their battles with Male Pattern Baldness openly.

In the UK, footballer Wayne Rooney is perhaps the most prominent man to go public with his decision to have a hair transplant to address his premature balding. The huge increase in enquiries into this type of surgery from across the UK following his first operation was dubbed ‘the Rooney effect’.

James Nesbitt 2018

James Nesbitt after two hair transplants

Stan Lee’s ‘Lucky Man’ actor James Nesbitt has also made a similar impact after speaking candidly to the media about his two hair restoration surgeries, and is proud to have played a part in busting this taboo.

“Didn’t fancy going bald”

In an interview with the Irish Independent the 53-year old, who decided to address his advanced hair loss for work-related reasons, explained why he felt it important to be so open about the experiences which have left him with such a good head of hair, it was once mistaken for a wig.

“Some men it doesn’t bother, but there are men that it does and it’s a difficult stage to go through. I’m married to my own vanity and I just didn’t fancy going bald,” said Nesbitt.

“I made the decision to talk about it because there are an awful lot of actors who don’t talk about it, which I thought was just absurd. I just thought, ‘Look, if I’m going to be bald one day and then have hair the next, people will know it doesn’t just come from eating carrots’.”

He is certainly correct in saying that many men do not want to talk about how they regrow thinning hair or deal with a receding hairline. One of the reasons many Belgravia clients give for following a non-surgical hair loss treatment course is the discretion it offers, given results are gradual and therefore less likely to draw immediate attention.

Actors, however, have options for hiding their hairloss that simply wouldn’t work in everyday life – for instance, having their hair digitally altered to look fuller on screen. Another way in which a ‘perfect hair’ myth can be maintained, along with wearing wigs, hairpieces, colouring in their scalps to match their hair colour or using microscopic hair fibres – which make the hair look temporarily thicker, although often somewhat matte – for photoshoots and public appearances.

Uses on-going hair loss treatment

The Cold Feet star has had two separate hair transplants and also follows an on-going aftercare hair treatment regimen comprising the only MHRA licensed and FDA approved hair loss medications. James Nesbitt says he does this “to improve the quality of my hair and to prevent further hair loss”.

His approach to preventing baldness and encouraging hair growth is one approved and widely recommended by top hair specialists and surgeons both prior to and after a hair transplant, or for men whose hair follicles are still functioning and want to avoid surgery altogether.

In 2017 we reported how demand for hair loss treatments was growing significantly in both India and China.

Now, according to a September 2018 report in Chinese newspaper Worker’s Daily, the trend for increasing hair loss in men across the country has been confirmed.

It states that the China Association of Health Promotion and Education carried out a survey which found that a quarter of men aged between 20 and 40 will suffer from some degree of hair loss. Furthermore it identified Chinese men in their 30s as those losing their hair at a faster rate than any other age group.

China couple man womanAlthough the most prevalent issue is the hereditary condition Male Pattern Baldness, it is also noted that temporary stress-related hair loss is also a common concern.

The article suggests these are the reasons behind a noted surge in sales of shampoos which claim to thicken hair.

Men more affected than women

This latest information feeds into an October 2017 study conducted by China’s Tsinghua University student paper, Fresh Times, which found notable differences between how students felt about their hair and the actual presence of any active issues.

A questionnaire-style survey was sent out and received 4,991 responses from students within 24 hours. Of these 4,068 were considered and came from 2,293 men and 1,775 women.

When respondents were asked for factual information regarding hair thinning, just under a quarter (24.39%) said their hair volume has decreased within the past month – a particular concern for curly-haired students – whilst just over 20% (20.67%) said they had been told by someone else that they had a receding hairline.

However, when asked to provide information about their own thoughts regarding any shedding, the numbers were much higher; 63.32% of students said they believed they had hair loss, and just under 40% (36.68%) thought their hairline was receding to some degree.

When asked to rate the level they felt best matched any changes to their hair on a five point scale, from 1 – ‘more hair’ to 5 ‘fast bald’, women most commonly responded with 2 – ‘no change’. Whilst men mostly chose 3 – ‘less points’ – presumably indicating some form of thinning hair.

The top three university faculties whose students reported feeling like they were already losing their hair were, the computer department, the school of architecture and the department of mathematics. However, those with the most hair loss concerns for the future were, in descending order, the journalism school, the teaching and reading institute, and the academy of social sciences.

This correlates with British research from May 2018 which found the most stressful careers in the UK to be in the public service industries. Welfare (social care workers) took the top spot, followed by nursing and midwifery, teaching, legal, business research and admin following.

Stress, genetics and air pollution

china shanghai smog air pollutionMale Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Hair Loss are both genetic conditions, therefore it is is necessary to have the inherited sensitivity to DHT for these to present. They can start to occur any time following puberty though tend to appear earlier in men with around 40% of men being affected by the age of 35, and approximately 80% of women being affected by the age of 60.

Existing cases of male or female pattern baldness may be exacerbated, or their premature onset initiated, by stress, speeding up the rate of hair fall. This can be emotional stress or physical, which can come in many forms, from sudden shock or being under intense pressure, to the strain placed on the body by factors such as an underlying illness or dietary imbalances. There are also additional environmental issues such as air pollution’s effects on oxidative stress – which has been linked to increasing cases of premature hair loss – and, given air pollution is a huge problem in China, may partly explain rising hairloss rates.

Regardless of its cause, there are effective, clinically-proven hair loss treatments available to both men and women. The first step for anyone concerned about a drop in volume, thinning hair or excessive hair fall, is to speak to a hair specialist who can provide a diagnosis of any active hair loss condition and recommend suitably tailored courses accordingly.

In the past there have been various studies into how aromatherapy may benefit hair loss. Generally it has been considered useful as part of an holistic approach to deterring stress-related shedding, though ineffective for initiating hair growth in any form of ‘treatment’ capacity with the possible exception of the autoimmune disorder Alopecia Areata.

Now, however, scientists from the UK and Germany have discovered a completely new way of using one particular scent for preventing baldness in Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss patients, as well as helping to regrow hair in cases of Telogen Effluvium.

sandalwood sandalore for hair growth Belgravia Centre hair loss blogTheir small-scale research has shown that a chemical which produces the same smell as sandalwood can influence hair follicles into both slowing down hair loss and encouraging hair growth.

Affects hair growth cycle

Researchers from the Monasterium Laboratory, Skin and Hair Research Solutions GmbH and the Department of Cell Physiology, Faculty Biology and Biotechnology at Ruhr-University Bochum, both in Germany, and the Centre for Dermatology Research, MAHSC and NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at the UK’s University of Manchester published their findings in the Nature Communications medical journal on 18th September 2018.

They discovered human hair follicles can essentially ‘smell’ and the scent of Sandalore®, a chemical commonly used in scented beauty and grooming products and which mimics the fragrance of sandalwood, positively affected the hair growth cycle.

This is not ‘smelling’ as we traditionally understand the sense of smell, but rather involves a signalling system of olfactory receptors (ORs).  Specifically, the study explains, ‘OR2AT4 [which is found on the outer layer of the hair follicle] has been shown to stimulate keratinocyte proliferation in the skin’. Keratinocytes are cells found in the skin’s epidermis and are responsible for pigmentation throughout the body, including our skin, eye and hair colour. They also play a role in regulating stem cells within the hair follicle.

Through in vitro tests carried out whereby Sandalore® was applied topically to four human scalp skin samples – taken, with patients’ consent, from remnants discarded during face lift surgeries – the study showed it stimulated ORsAT4 which, in turn, prolonged human hair growth and suppressed keratinocyte deterioration. The ORsAT4 antagonist Phenirat® was also administered and was seen to inhibit hair growth.

Hair Growth Cycle DiagramThrough ‘selective silencing’ of ORsAT4, Sandalore® was found to ‘profoundly impact human hair growth ex vivo primarily via regulating expression and secretion of the key hair growth-promoting factor, IGF-1’.

IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor – 1) is a hormone produced primarily by the liver, which is heavily involved in human development and growth. The amount produced throughout an individual’s lifetime varies from person to person and a deficiency or inability to produce IGF-1 can result in conditions such as dwarfism.

By using Sandalore to stimulate ORsAT4 and encourage the hair follicles to produce IGF-1, the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle was shown to extend, whilst the catagen stage was delayed – the active growth and shedding stages, respectively. It was proposed that additional pathways, not just IGF-1 signalling, should also be explored as others – including p38a/ERK1/2/MSK1/2, HB-EGF/EGF-R, and FGF-7 – may also produce similar results.

As the collaborators conclude in their findings, ‘Taken together, our ex vivo data suggest that olfactotherapy by topically applied cosmetic OR2AT4 ligands like Sandalore® may promote human hair growth by prolonging anagen and inhibiting premature catagen development (e.g., in androgenetic alopecia and telogen effluvium)… Together, our study identifies that human hair follicles can engage in olfactory receptor-dependent chemosensation and require OR2AT4-mediated signaling to sustain their growth, suggesting that olfactory receptors may serve as a target in hair loss therapy’.

“This is actually a rather amazing finding,” says Professor Ralf Paus, the lead study author and scientist at the University of Manchester, in The Independent. “This is the first time ever that it has been shown that the remodelling of a normal human mini-organ [a hair] can be regulated by a simple, cosmetically widely-used odorant.”

“A very small, short and preliminary clinical pilot study performed by an independent CRO [contract research organisation] in 20 female volunteers with topical Sandalore has already suggested a reduction of daily hair loss.”

Hairloss treatment Male Pattern Baldness LasercombCaution advised

Before anyone tries any home remedies based around the use of sandalwood oils, it is crucial to be aware that – firstly, – the product discussed above is a chemical ingredient used in the fragrance industry, it is not regular sandalwood oil. Secondly, even natural remedies can have nasty side effects and dangers attached to them, particularly essential oils – including sandalwood. Always take the necessary precautions to ensure any home remedies you may wish to try are done in the safest way possible with all instructions being followed properly.

This trial was extremely small and, whilst certainly exciting in that it opens up a whole new channel for exploration in the development of future hair growth products and hair loss solutions, further research and development are still needed. Although live human clinical trials are next up, they have not yet started so there is no full picture available yet and this is not likely to become clear for a number of years yet.

For those concerned about Male Pattern Baldness or Female Pattern Hair Loss in the meantime, there are established clinically-proven hair loss treatments already available; for those with Telogen Effluvium – which causes temporary hair thinning – the hair should grow back of its own accord within six months, though Belgravia also offers treatment courses to help accelerate this process.

If you are at all worried about prolonged excessive hair fall, sudden hairloss, a receding hairline or generally thinning hair, a consultation with a professional hair specialist is advisable as a first port of call. This service will provide you with a diagnosis and treatment recommendations tailored to your specific condition, level and pattern of shedding, medical requirements and lifestyle. Furthermore, it can often simply provide a sense of relief, the knowledge that you are not alone in dealing with these issues and, should you want it, help is already available.

Name: Jake

Question: I can’t use minoxidil or finasteride due to side effects. Are there any other options?

Answer: Hi, Jake. Due to the medications you mention we are assuming you are looking for alternative treatments for Male Pattern Baldness.

Minoxidil and finasteride 1mg are currently the only clinically-proven, MHRA licensed and FDA approved hair loss treatments for this condition. As the side effect profile of minoxidil is generally considered to be low, we would recommend speaking to a hair loss specialist to ensure you have explored and exhausted all options available to you here. They will be able to recommend suitable formulations based on your medical profile as well as your level and pattern of shedding, and answer any questions you may have about them.

If you still prefer to avoid these established medications, there are two routes you could consider: hair restoration surgery or non-pharmaceutical hair growth ‘boosters’.

Mens Hair Loss Treatment Male Pattern Baldness Belgravia CentreDepending on your age, how extensive your hairloss is and your medical suitability, a hair transplant may be worth considering. This surgery involves having donor hairs harvested from the areas of the scalp that are not affected by Male Pattern Baldness, namely the back and sides (only the hairs located along the top of the scalp, from the crown to the hairline and temples are susceptible to genetic hair thinning).

One important point about this option, and one a reputable surgeon should discuss with you if you choose to explore this route, is how the operation often goes hand-in-hand with pharmaceutical treatment use. Many hair restoration experts recommend following a male hair loss treatment course for at least six months prior to the procedure. This is to maximise hair growth and minimise shedding, making the area cleaner to work with.

The course is generally resumed following the op as part of an aftercare and upkeep hair regimen. The reason for this is that the original hairs in the susceptible areas surrounding those replaced during transplantation will remain subject to the effects of DHT – the hormone which binds to the vulnerable follicles, causing gradual weakening, thinning hair and hair loss or baldness in the affected areas. For instance, if a man has a hair transplant to fill out a receding hairline, even though these implanted hairs should be immune to Male Pattern Baldness and start to show their final results around 12 months after surgery, he may still experience shedding along his vertex and/or crown area.

Another avenue you may wish to explore is the world of secondary or supplementary therapies. These are generally used to best effect alongside the appropriate hair loss medications but can also be used on their own. Whilst unproven therapies such as scalp injections – PRP and mesotherapy – fall under this category, there are a range of non-invasive hair growth supporting products that Belgravia hair specialists prefer to recommend.

This includes LLLT devices such as the FDA-cleared LaserBand which uses laser diodes to stimulate the hair follicles to encourage hair growth, but we would suggest having a consultation first to ensure whichever options you decide to try are suitable for you.

One thing you can do, in the meantime, is to ensure you are reducing the number of hair loss triggers – factors which can exacerbate shedding – such as stress, a poor or unbalanced diet and smoking. Whilst these steps won’t stop hair loss where the cause is purely genetic, they may help by not aggravating the condition or speeding up the rate at which you are losing your hair.

Just ten days after announcing having been awarded a Breakthrough Therapy designation by America’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its novel Alopecia Areata treatment, Pfizer has revealed the results of its latest trial.

These were announced on 15th September 2018 as part of the 27th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Congress in Paris, France.

PfizerHair regrowth improvements

The multi-centre, blind Phase 2a clinical trial was conducted in a compared the effects of an oral janus kinase inhibitor (JAK inhibitor) known as PF-06651600, and a tyrosine kinase inhibitor referred to as PF-06700841, to a placebo in order to determine their hair regrowth capabilities. The trial participants all had confirmed diagnoses of autoimmune hair loss from moderate rounded bald patches of the scalp only (Alopecia Areata), to the most severe phenotype which presents as complete baldness from head to toe (Alopecia Universalis)

Although available Alopecia Areata treatment can be beneficial in cases of the localised scalp iteration – as many Belgravia clients have experienced – the more extensive the hair loss, the fewer and less effective current treatment options tend to be.

Trial volunteers were randomly split into three groups – one which received the JAK inhibitor PF-06651600, one which received the tyrosine kinase inhibitor PF-06700841 and one which received a placebo treatment.

The JAK inhibitor group was administered PF-06651600 in doses of 200 mg once per day for 4 weeks, then 50mg per day for 20 weeks. The PF-06700841 group were given the tyrosine kinase inhibitor in 60 mg per day doses for 4 weeks, followed by 30 mg daily for 20 weeks. Placebo doses were not provided but, equally, are irrelevant to the outcomes.

According to a press release circulated by the pharmaceutical giant, ‘the placebo-adjusted mean (95% CI) in SALT change from baseline scores at Week 24 were 33.6 points (21.4, 45.7), (P<0.0001) for PF-06651600 and 49.5 points (37.1, 61.8), (P<0.0001) for PF-06700841, with statistically significant separation from placebo occurring as early as Week 6 and Week 4, respectively.

Both JAK inhibitors met the primary efficacy endpoint in improving hair regrowth on the scalp relative to baseline at week 24 (33.6 points and 49.5 points for JAK3 and TYK2/JAK1, respectively) as measured by the Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT) score (100 point scale).’

Areas affected by Alopecia Areata hair loss are shown in blue

Although there were some side effects noted, these adverse events were deemed ‘comparable between treatment groups’, with the most commonly seen issues being gastrointestinal and skin/subcutaneous tissue infections.

Dr. Michael Vincent, M.D, Ph.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer at Pfizer Inflammation and Immunology stated, “This is the first well-controlled study of oral JAK inhibitors in alopecia areata, helping enhance our understanding of this disease with significant unmet need and advance the science of kinase inhibition.

Whether he meant the first study by Pfizer, or in general – given that other research institutions and pharmaceutical companies have been conducting clinical trials into JAK inhibiton‘s effect on alopecia areata hair loss for some years now – was not made clear.

Moving on to next clinical trial phase

These results relate to completion of Phase 2a of the clinical trial process, which typically constitutes four separate stages – three prior to release, with the fourth being post-release monitoring. Therefore, Phase III is the final stage that, following successful completion, enables the drug to be put forward for evaluation by the necessary medical regulatory boards in each country, such as the MHRA and FDA in the UK and USA respectively. Their licenses and approvals need to be obtained before the medication can be made available for prescription to patients in those locations.

Given Pfizer and the FDA are working together to expedite the development and review processes involved in trying to bring these new treatments to market, although the process can take many months or years in some cases, this is likely to be prioritised in order to release the medications as quickly as possible if they are proven to meet all safety, tolerability and efficacy criteria.

The FDA is also working in a similar way with two other pharmaceutical companies to Fast Track their novel treatments for Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis. The estimated release date that at least one of these is working towards, has been given as 2021/2022.

In the meantime, those affected with this type of alopecia are advised to consult their GP and look into support from counsellors and hair loss charities if the baldness extends to the whole head – including facial hair – or body, or if they are under 16 years of age. For those aged 16 and over with the scalp-only phenotype, topical treatment for Alopecia Areata may be possible, so a consultation with a hair specialist is worth considering.
