We recently took the time to think about the famous actors that have played James Bond, and their various levels of hair loss – but regardless of whether their hairlines were receding or not, these men were only playing a part. Although the glamour of the Bond-style secret agent lifestyle may be attractive for many men, it is interesting to consider how real spying would affect the body, and most significantly, the hairline?
The movies would have us believe that many spies are required to attend posh dinner parties, balls and casinos and drink a copious quantity of alcohol in the process. The good news for 007 is that there is no credible research to suggest that a surfeit of vodka martinis cause hair loss. The bad news, however, is that heavy drinking is known to exacerbate existing hair loss conditions.
As well as cutting down on alcohol intake, a good dietary supplement, such as The Belgravia Centre’s Hair Vitalics, can provide the vitamins and nutrients required for healthy hair growth, and help the aspiring agent stave off some hair loss conditions.
Various spy films highlight the fact that secret agents need to criss-cross the globe several times a week, usually to various stylish destinations. Travel itself is not known to cause any hair loss conditions, but the effects of jet lag are not quite so forgiving.
Sleep is essential to general health and jet lag is well known to disrupt the sleep cycle. If an agent fails to get enough sleep, they leave themselves open to stress-related hair loss and other general immune system issues.
A clandestine lifestyle carries plenty of fear and uncertainty, all of which can take a toll on the health of the secret agent. Stress is known to aggravate a number of hair loss conditions, so if the spy has a genetic predisposition to male pattern balding, he may find that he starts to lose hair at an increased rate as he becomes more stressed.
Wherever possible a spy should take time off to relax away from the job, allowing his body to recuperate.
Treating hair loss
For some people – spies or otherwise – the more difficult aspects of a job may have already started to take a toll and begun to exacerbate, or even initiate hair loss. Fortunately, The Belgravia Centre treats men and women from all walks of life in total confidentiality, making them the perfect choice for anyone looking to prevent further hair loss.
However, many of our patients do not feel the need for anonymity after being so pleased with the progress of their regrowth – you can view our archive of success stories, which features hundreds of photos and stories from patients who want to share their results and encourage others with similar conditions to seek help.
